The thing that I find amazing about this letter from Carl Jung (pictured) to Bill Wilson concerning spirituality and alcoholism, is that Bill Wilson was nearing the end of his life and felt a need to express to Carl Jung how profoundly he was affected by his views. – Bill Urell
Dr Carl Jung’s letter to Bill W. concluded;
“You see, Alcohol in Latin is “spiritus” and you use the same word for the highest religious experience as well as for the most depraving poison. The helpful formula therefore is: spiritus contra spiritum.”
Thanking you again for your kind letter.
I remain yours sincerely,
