Carl Jung On How To Properly Conduct Your Life

Here’s Carl Jung’s advice on the proper conduct of life:

Your questions are unanswerable, because you want to know how to live. One lives as one can. There is no single, definite way… If that’s what you want, you had best join the Catholic Church, where they tell you what’s what. 

The way you make for yourself, which is never prescribed, which you do not know in advance, and which simply comes into being itself when you put one foot in front of the other. 

Quietly do the next and most necessary thing. So long as you think you don’t yet know what that is, you still have too much money to spend in useless speculation. But if you do something with conviction, the next and most necessary thing, you are always doing something meaningful and intended by fate. 

Without answers to our questions, there are only the actions we do (or do not) take. And whatever happens, happens, so just keep learning and moving forward.

Ps. I’ve read this quote multiple times, typed it out twice, and read it again and I feel like it’s still giving my brain and my heart a hug
