“L'incontro tra due persone è come il contatto di due sostanze chimiche: se c'è una reazione, entrambe si trasformano.”

- Carl Jung

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness’s of other people. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
—  Carl Jung

“We can become dissociated and lose our identity. We can be possessed by moods, or become unreasonable, so that people ask: “What the devil has got into you?” We talk about “control,” but self control is a rare and remarkable virtue.“

~ C. G Jung

As a child I felt myself to be
alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things
which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do
not want to know. Loneliness does not come from having no people
about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that
seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which
others find inadmissible.
—  Carl Jung, “Memories, Dreams, Reflections”

“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.” — Carl Jung
