"What a strange question! Hardly comprehensible to modern ears! In essence the question is the most profound question one can ask: where is the center of gravity of a human personality or where is the center of meaning in a human life? Most modern people, asked this question in understandable terms for our time, would reply that "I" am the center of gravity; "I" work to improve my life;... "I" am searching for happiness, which is to say that I want the Grail to serve me. We ask this great cornucopia of nature, this great feminine outpouring of all the material of the world: the air, the sea, the animals, the oil, the forest, and all the productivity of the world-- we ask that it should serve us... The answer comes reverberating through the Grail Castle halls 'The Grail serves the Grail King'. Translated this means that life serves what... Jung calls the Self or what we call by many terms we have devised to indicate 'that which is greater than ourselves'. If you ask the Grail to give you happiness, that demand precludes happiness. But if you serve the Grail and the Grail King properly, you will find that what happens and happiness are the same thing. A play on words becomes the definition of enlightenment.
One cannot pursue happiness; if he does he obscures it. If he will proceed with the human task of life, the relocation of the center of gravity of the personality to something greater outside itself, #happiness will be the outcome." Robert A. Johnson, He: Understanding Masculine Psychology
