New Experience

world tree

Like Wotan’s oaks, the gods were felled
and a wholly incongruous Christianity,
born of monotheism on a much higher cultural level,
was grafted onto the stumps.
The Germanic man is still suffering from this mutilation ..
We must dig down to the primitive in us,
for only out of the conflict between civilized man
and the Germanic barbarian, will there come
what we need: A new experience of God.
~Carl Jung, Wotan
