The Guideline of Truthfulness

“In Modern Man is Search of a Soul, Jung writes, ‘Thoroughly unprepared, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning – for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening have become a lie.’ The guideline of truthfulness asks us to update our beliefs and values and views in order to stay current with ourselves and our surroundings.”
