“When you are up against a wall, put down roots like a tree, until clarity comes from deeper sources to see over that wall and grow.”


“The only meaningful life is a life that strives for the individual realization–absolute and unconditional–of its own particular law…To the extent that a man is untrue to the law of his being…he has failed to realize his own life’s meaning.
The undiscovered vein within us is a living part of the psyche; classical Chinese philosophy names this interior way “Tao,” and likens it to a flow of water that moves irresistibly towards its goal. To rest in Tao means fulfillment, wholeness, one’s destination reached, one’s mission done; the beginning, end, and perfect realization of the meaning of existence innate in all things.”
― Carl Jung

  3. I spotted your comment on Merril Smith’s blog and consequently was lured over to yours. We have two things in common: a career as an English professor and a predilection for Jung. I remember doing papers on him in college. Here’s another quote: “The greatest force in the life of any child is the un-lived lives of their parents.”
