Quote of the day

The region of darkness into which one fall is not empty; it is the "lavishing mother" of Lao-Tzu, the "images" and the "seed". When the surface has been cleared, things can grow out of the depths. People always suppose that they have lost their way when they come up against these depths of experience. But if they do not know how to go on, the only answer is, the only advice that makes sense is "Wait fro what the unconscious has to say about the situation." A way is only the way when one finds it and follows it oneself. There is no general prescription for "how to do it". First Ed. of "The Integration Personality," p. 31f
