Jung: “I Don’t Have Faith; I Know.”

“If the unknown were not unknown faith would not be necessary. Faith will become unnecessary, as life ever-lasting becomes known to you. (The Treatises of A Course of Love: A Treatise on the New, 4.13″)

1 – Carl Jung

Carl Jung’s famous statement is apropos here. He had dropped deep into his unconscious to come to terms with his own psyche, and there he had found God.

2 – The Depths of Our Psyche

We can do the same. Whether we call the depths “God,” or the “unconscious,” or the “subconscious,” we can know something very substantial when we plunge into these depths. We don’t have to have a name for what we find. We are no longer having to feel that we accept things, blindly, on faith. Our “faith” is deeper, broader; it is true knowledge that knows no doubt. This is what awaits us as we look within, long and deeply.

3 – Faith

Faith is all too often seen as something that we try to convince ourselves about, but that we actually find hard to believe. Here Jesus reassures us that the time of the blind faith requirement is no longer. We will know. We will understand. Like a great man of psychology, Carl Jung, we will not even have to “have” faith, because we will just “know.” This is a fact of Christ-consciousness.

4 – Bible

According to the Bible, faith was the evidence of things not seen. Now, in this era, we will “see.” Now enough people have reached Awakening that we are undergoing a sea change. The play on words of “see” and “sea” is inadvertent, but illustrative. We will know without having to place blind faith before us.

5 – Eternal Life

Most of us reading this do already believe in eternal life. May we so live our lives on this earth that we are prepared for the Other Side. But may we recognize that we do not live for the afterlife. We live for today, taking the time to experience daily the blessings that are ours.

Prayer:

Dear Father/Mother,

May I know, as only Jesus can understand, that life is eternal. May I not have to depend on a timid “faith” that this is so.

Thank You for the assurances that Jesus is giving me. Help me to apply this new knowledge as I try to live, joyfully, today.

May I have patience as I walk through my day. May Your imparted knowledge to me assure me that all is well. May the blessings of Your pathway reveal themselves to me. May I have peace. Today and always.

Amen.

    Thank you for writing about this.Faith is one of those things I’ve struggled grasping for most of my life. Now that I’ve become more honest with myself, I realised the problem about my faith was not my lack of it, but of the wrong indoctrination of it by society.
