Carl Jung: Darkness Visible

"A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another's."  ~Jean Paul

God appears, and God is light,
To those poor souls who dwell in night;
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day.
                               — William Blake

Behold the Sun at the midnight hour;
Build with stones in the lifeless ground.
Thus in decay and in the night of Death
Find Creation's new beginning, young morning's strength.
Glory in the heights the eternal Word of Gods;
Shelter in the depths the Powers of Peace.
In darkness dwelling, create a Sun;
In matter weaving, know spiritual joy!
                                 Rudolf Steiner

       At the turning point of time

       the spirit-light of the world

       entered the stream of Earth existence.

       Darkness of light

       had ceased its reign;

       day-radiant light

       shone forth in human souls:

       light that gives warmth

       to simple shepherds' hearts,

       light that enlightens

       the wise heads of kings.

       Godly Light!

       Christ Sun!

       Warm our hearts!

       enlighten our heads!

       that good may come

       from what we cradle in our hearts,

       what we direct from our heads

       with true-to-the-mark, consecrated willing!
