seeing slow fire

The ego is always trying to ‘arrive’ so that it can rest. This is its belief, its hope, its dream. And it wants to ‘arrive’ at this arrival so that it can identify itself as being one who ‘arrived.’ But all of this is the ego looking for a better identity and a more advantageous state to be in. All of this is neither good nor bad, right or wrong. It simply is confusion and causes suffering.

taking care not to disparage of the moment ahead….

inquiry for today~ reflect on your finest knowings…..

how do I really know?

He who looks in the mirror of the water, first sees his own image. He who looks at himself, risks to meet himself. The mirror does not flatter, it shows accurately what is reflected in it, namely that face that we never show the world because we hide it by the persona, the mask of the actor. This is the first test of courage on the inner path, a test, which is enough to frighten most people, because the encounter with oneself belongs to those unpleasant things, one avoids as long as one can project the negative onto the environment.

~Carl Jung
