Look Inside and Awaken

'Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart...Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.'
--psychologist Carl Jung. For an earlier Jungian quote, go here. The Swiss-born Jung--whose influence on the field of modern psychology and psychiatry ranks only behind that of Freud--lives on through the C.G. Jung Institute in L.A. and through his many books.

John: You probably know that the C.G. Jung Educational Center sponsors events and talks, too.

I'm not currently a member nor dogmatic about any school of psychology, but I have attended a few talks over the years. Always: Memorable.

The concept of the archetype was one that I could not wrap my mind around until I had passed a certain decade (won't say which one).

For the record, Maria, I did NOT know that, but thankful that I now do, thanks to you. It never ceases to amuse me how many things I learn from friends, colleagues and acquaintances that begin with the phrase "I'm sure you know this..." It's become one of my biggest channels to learning!
