“The Fates lead the willing
But drag the unwilling.” (Cleanthes)
does it mean to love our fate, as Jung concludes that we must? Is looking nostalgically at the past, to the good old days,
or to what we used to be able to achieve when we were young, what Jung had in mind? How much does living consciously (whatever
that might mean) change or direct our Fate?
Eckhart Tolle, in “The Power of NOW”, invites his readers to 'a pain-free existence by living fully in the present.’Being fully present, accepting this moment, implies a willingness on our part to be
with the Fates, rather than against them.This is close to what we, following
Jung, explore in this challenging idea of Amor Fati. (Of course, Jung has a lot more to say about suffering, especially

●Report on the year’s activities
and financial report
New●Proposal to raise the annual membership fee by $5.
The annual membership fee has not been raised for many years. In order for the Society to continue to be able
to break even over a year of operations, the Executive Committee proposes a modest rise of $5 bringing the membership fee
to $35 per year ($25 concession, $50 for couples and families; $12 for newsletter only). This rise will still leave us in
the position of having amongst the lowest membership fees of all the Jung Societies in Australia.
