There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however is disagreeable, and therefore not popular.
—  C.G. Jung
All your impatience
comes from the push
for gain of patience.
Let go of the effort
and peace will arrive.

All your unfulfilled desires
are from your greed
for gain of fulfillments.
Let go of them all
and they will be sent as gifts.

~ Rumi
