Exploring the archetypal level
To confront a person with his own shadow is to show him his own light. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
The decisive question for us is: Are we related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of our life. The less sensitivity we have for what is essential, the less satisfying is our life. If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change. ~ Carl Jung
Children unconsciously remain loyal to unspoken family traditions that work invisibly. Constellations are a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations.
Avoiding the void is the main activity of the mind. Fear of the void radiates through all of our choices and desires. Desire connects us to the world; fear connects us to the infinite. ~ TimeSurfer
