What’s directing your life?
My new favorite motto: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” So said Carl Jung. Yes, we may call it fate – but it’s really the Self, our True Self (or, in theological terms, God) that’s directing the show. Unless little ego “wakes up” and cooperates, it will seem like fate outside of ourselves and it’s not. How to wake up? Pay attention to your dreams! Dreams are a direct stream of information from the unconscious and from the True Self. Honor you dreams, answer them – at least write them down. Hear what they have to say. Each dream presents a truth about the difficulty of the present moment and a hint of a solution or move toward balance. It takes some practice to understand the dream’s symbolic language, but it’s well worth it!
