Road to Life...
This quote by Carl Gustav Jung drives that home:
"There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious."
It has taken me 46 years to come to this realization and ALL the absurd things I did to avoid "facing my soul" but I am ever thankful to start that journey now than to never have the realization. Where is your journey? Where is your road to life? Are you hiding? Insecure? Putting your existence into material things? Living your life through your children?
Take time. Sit quietly. It may be painful but don't look away. Embrace it.
