Embrace your life

“Jesus is the principle of life. In everything he says and does he works against the denial and avoidance of life. He embraces it and encourages all to do the same.”
--Thomas Moore, Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels

“Are we to understand the imitation of Christ’ in the sense that we should copy him . . . or in the deeper sense that we are to live our own proper lives as truly as he lived his in all its implications? It is no easy matter to live a life that is modeled on Christ’s, but it is unspeakably harder to live one’s own life as truly as Christ lived his.”
-- C.G. Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul
