A young pastor sought the counsel of the eminent psychiatrist, “Dr Jung, what shall I do? I find myself working 14 hours a days. I feel so tired….”
“Why not work 8 hours a day and then retire to your study for solitude?
So he stopped church work after 8 hours of pastoral labour.
He spent 6 hours in his study reading the great German writers like Hesse & Mann. He played Mozart and Chopin.
He complained to Jung, “That didn’t help at all.”
“I didn’t want you to be with Hesse, Mann, Mozart and Chopin I wanted you to be with yourself.”
“O, I can’t think of any worse company!” answered the priest.
