Existential Friday: Shadow Self

 

Self in Shadow

Self in Shadow

Facing

the Shadow,


What We seek

 is

INDIVIDUATION,

a process whereby we become

integrated and complete.

  Who will

chart

the Self  ??

  

After all things,


we voyage

by,

Facing the Shadow,

Recognizing the Shadow,

Incorporating the Shadow


 

into

the Self.


Facing the Shadow,

                        

The Pangaean fundamentals of Self

Seeks out the Tectonics of Being.


          

We reconstruct our Daily Masque,

Acquiring new steps

in the Dance.

Who is to question

Our Hyde ?

Facing the Shadow,


 

He will be our guide

to

This Brave New Selfography.

Overcoming

fundamental duality

in human nature

that we touched upon

Sailing

in Early Hours of the Morning,

 

 

That is the Sea,

 

 

All things  &  The One.

Facing the Shadow

Upon

the


Lily Pad

We Dream

– Are We the Dreamers or the Dream ? –

of

 


Unity.


 

Do We Awaken

IN

The Depths of the Ocean


or

 

A Boundless Sky of Stars ?

Each contains Beautiful Darkness.

Each contains Glorious Light.

The Shadow Self fr

“Archetypes from the unconscious are worked through in art, religious or meditation practices, and used in the mastery of the Self. An individuated person can see that the `personality’ is just one of many possibilities, a mask even, that can be put on or put aside appropriate to the conditions which social necessity imposes on us. Dream analysis has a larger role in Jungian work than in other therapies, because Jung believed that in dreams we can best access the archetypes and the shadow.” ( Source)
