Shadow within

| Psychology | 0 Comments

According to Jung, an individual's true goal in life is NOT about trying to achieve some kind of unattainable perfection, but rather striving for a wholeness of being.

"Good does not become better by being exaggerated, but worse, and a small evil becomes a big one through being disregarded and repressed. The shadow is very much a part of human nature, and it is only at night that no shadows exist."

- Carl Jung, Psychology and Religion

The path to a greater character, to a more effectual approach to life, lies in integrating those elements of our psyche that for too long have been repressed and denied, our unconscious shadow side.

There is nothing wrong with ignoring this taboo of society, acknowledging it's presence within, exposing it for what it is and balancing your life accordingly.
