"There is only one way and that is your way; there is only one salvation and

that is your salvation......What is to come will be created in you and from you.

Hence look into yourself.  Do not compare, do not measure.  No other way is

like yours.  All other ways deceive and tempt you.  You must fulfill the way

that is in you."  [The Red Book, p. 130]

That is so true!

He who has suffer, can understand everything and everyone.

"The most beautiful people I was allowed to meet were those who have lost, suffered, struggled, lost, who have found their way to pull their heads out of the water, who have skinned those who have broken their lives.

These people have an appreciation, sensitivity, and understanding of life that fills them with compassion, tenderness, and deep love for others.

Pretty people don't come out of nowhere."

~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

But there come times - perhaps this is one of them -
when we have to take ourselves more seriously or die…

…we are always like this, rootless, dismembered: knowing this makes the difference.

Birth stripped our birthright from us,
tore us from a woman, from women, from ourselves so early on

And the whole chorus throbbing out our ears
like midges, told us nothing, nothing
of origins, nothing we needed to know ,
nothing that could re-member us.

Homesick for myself, for her…

I love both Jung and Kandinsky!

Freud? sometimes, not always.

“Unexpressed emotions will never die.
They are buried alive and they will
come forth later in uglier ways.”

Well, what makes people lovable is nothing inherent in themselves, but the way view them. 

What is lovable tome may not be to anyone else. 

If I am full of love, every one seems lovable to me.

"Yellow, Red, Blue", by Wassily Kandinsky

"The art of life is the most distinguished and rarest of all the arts."

Lawrence was writing from the perspective of a society still breaking free from hundreds of years of repressed id.

And I’m guessing he wrote this before WW II 

It seems our desire to be elemental is as likely to produce a Hitler or Manson, as it is to produce a noble savage.

I think there’s a very wide spectrum as to how we approach our shadow.

With 7 billion possibilities, the specific biochemistry of each person will incline them to be more or less passionate. More or less logical.

Swedenborg or Blake? Either/or. Or some of both!

D.H. Lawrence under a tree.

Why don't people leave off being lovable

Or thinking they are lovable, or wanting to be lovable,

And be a bit elemental instead?

Since man is made up of the elements

Fire, and rain, and air, and live loam

And none of these is lovable

But elemental,

Man is lop-sided on the side of the angels.

I wish men would get back their balance among the elements

And be a bit more fiery, as incapable of telling lies

As fire is.

I wish they'd be true to their own variation, as water is,

Which goes through all the stages of steam and stream and ice

Without losing its head.

I am sick of lovable people,

Somehow they are a lie.

 D.H. Lawrence
