What Is Wanting to Find Expression Through You?

“I’ve learned the hard way, there’s something in us that always knows what’s right for us. And I can say quite literally, if I need to decide what is appropriate for me in any life situation, ranging from practical problems to large questions of life, I sort of put it inside and wait for an answer. And it always comes back to me I’ve imagined a bunch of little folks running around inside the solar plexus, working on these things and they always get a report back to me. You’re right. When one is in those difficult places, one forgets that we have within us extraordinary resources, the resources of resilience, the resources of insight, the resources of adaptation, and resources of courage at times. And underneath all of this is a question: From whence comes my real authority?” Dr. James Hollis is a Jungian analyst, and the author of many books, including, The Middle Passage, Living an Examined Life, Through the Dark Wood, and Living Between Worlds. He shares more in this interview about the journey for personal fulfillment– where it begins, what it requires, and how it transforms us. { read more }
