Xavier Leon-Dufour, Dictionary of Biblical Theology, (New York: Seabury Press, 1973), pp. 100-101, "Sacred history does not stop with the present but moves on to the term depicted by prophetic eschatology. To understand exactly the meaning of ultimate salvation, one must refer to God's creative act. In describing Christ's relation to the world, there is a subtle movement from His action in the original creation to His action in the eschatological re-creation of creatures. Creation and redemption thus merge."

His complicated living conditions and the influences of his environment are so strong that they drown the quiet voice of nature. Opinions, beliefs, theories and collective tendencies appear in its stead and back up all the aberrations of the conscious mind," whose standpoint becomes too one-sided and thus aberrant."

The solution of a geometry problem does not in itself constitute a precious gift, but the same law applies to it because it is the image of something precious. Being a little fragment of particular Truth, it is a pure image of the unique, eternal and living Truth."

63. Campbell, The Portable Jung, p. 145 and Whitmont, The Symbolic Quest, pp. 228-9: "In a really serious moral impasse it is our heretofore accepted virtues, not our vices, that crucify us. At the root of every profound ethical conflict we find that every 'right' also occasions a 'wrong.' In order to benefit one side or person we hurt another; yet to achieve our individual wholeness, the reality of our innermost 'good,' we are required to risk the experience of our own evil, in the form in which we find it. This recognition of the primitive side which demands life space in our own terms of evil puts us in a double bind: whichever way we move seems wrong. Yet it appears that only through suffering of the deadlock, living through the opposition of ethical demands, can the experience of meaning be born. The path out of the dilemma can only be found by waiting and consciously holding on to both sides of the conflict, by making the utmost effort to keep both sides in fullest awareness without repressing them or falling into a state of identification. This means nothing less than that the conflict with all its excruciating implications must be endured consciously; we cannot seek to terminate it forcibly by taking sides, by enforcing a premature decision. Symbolically this amounts to a crucifixion ; by our consent, our acceptance of this suffering we are nailed to the cross of opposing drives."

Whitmont, The Symbolic Quest, p. 230: "Eventually, at the point where the irresolvable conflict is brought to its most excruciating tension, where the ego has come to the end of its wits, when we realize that all our attempts notwithstanding we cannot bring about a change by our own effort, then what Jung called the reconciling symbol, the new directive from the unconscious, may present itself. This new directive is part of the myth of one's life. It expresses the law of our being which does not arise from our own planning but comes to us as a result of our efforts and struggles, from a source or center unknown to us. Life becoes increasing full and meaningful and unexpected."

While the affective, interpersonal, and communicatory nature of symbolic exchange is rightly affirmed, its usage has to embrace negativity and nonidentity between the symbol and reality (as well)."
