Carl Jung on “Animus” – Anthology
But the more we become conscious of ourselves through self-knowledge, and act accordingly, the more the layer of the personal unconscious that is superimposed on the collective unconscious will be diminished. In this way there arises a consciousness which is no longer imprisoned in the petty, oversensitive, personal world of the ego, but participates freely in the wider world of objective interests. ~Carl Jung
The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.
It is far more difficult to murder a phantom than a reality.
