Possessorship of Self

The Goal of Eastern practices is the same as that of Western mysticism: the focus is shifted from the "I" to the Self, from man to God. This means that the "I" disappears in the Self, and man in God. A similar effort is described in the exercitia spiritualia, in which the "personal property", the "I" subjugate to the highest possible degree to the possessorship of Christ.

- Carl Jung
