Revising The Divine

Man´s relation to God probably has to undergo a certain important change: instead of propitiating praise to an unpredictable king or the child's prayer to a loving father, the responsible living and fulfilling of the divine will in us, will be our form of worship and commerce with God.
His goodness means grace and light and His dark side, the terrible temptation of power. Man has already received so much power that he can destroy his own planet.
Let us hope that God´s good spirit will guide him in his decisions, because it will depend upon man´s decision whether God´s creation will continue.
Nothing shows more drastically than this possibility how much of divine power has come within the reach of man.
C.G.Jung, 1956
