I love library sales, and attend whenever I can. I especially love Sunday sales because you can fill a whole bag for $4.
Page 37 of Owning Your Own Shadow, Robert A. Johnson.
A wonderful saying attributed to Mahatma Gandhi: “If you follow the old code of justice – an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth – you end up with a blind and toothless world.”
Jung used to say that we can be grateful for our enemies, for their darkness allows us to escape our own.
OOooooohhhhhh, in here it is talking about the Mandorla. Verrrrryyyy interesting!
“To refuse the dark side of ones nature is to store up or accumulate the darkness; this is later expressed as a black mood, psychosomatic illness, or unconsciously inspired accidents. We are presently dealing with the accumulation of a whole society that has worshiped its light side and refused the dark, and this residue appears as war, economic chaos, strikes, racial intolerance … the only choice is whether we will incorporate the shadow consciously and with some dignity or do it through some neurotic behavior.”
Wow … there is a lot of information in this book that gets the mind thinking, at least my mind ….
