Happy Groundhawg's Day

Oh, hawg who dwelt in the ground.

Be not afraid of thyn Shadow.

That mystery, however frightful, is only the undiscovered side of yourself.

Come out of yourn cave, my friend.

A secret I shall share with you: buried in that Shadow, just underneath the tar, lays a bounty of gold.

Be not afraid nor overly critical.

For what you would shrink from and scold is none other than your divine hidden soul.

C.G. Jung: Archeologist of the Psyche, Explorer of the Soul, Adventurer of the Imagination

Where others had been too timid to travel, where many had been too short sighted to envision, where few had been resourcefulness to return: Jung was there. His impulse to discovery lead him to territories of taboo that where and have been too extreme for a great deal of our mainstream psychologists.
