Alcoholics Anonymous: C.G. Jung letter to Bill Wilson

"His craving for alcohol was the equivalent on a low level of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholesomeness, the union with God.

The only right and legitimate way to such an experience is, that it happens to you in reality and it can only happen to you when you walk on a path, which leads you to a higher understanding.  You might be led to that goal by an act of grace or through a higher education of the mind beyond the mere confines of mere rationalism.

- From a letter from C. G. Jung to Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous
