Our unconscious–so called because we are not conscious of

that aspect of ourselves–

seems to be interested in our being true to ourselves

within the context and circumstances of our life,

while our conscious egos–

that would be the self we are conscious of–

seems to be interested in doing whatever it takes

to succeed in and triumph over

the context and circumstances of our life,

to the point of denying, betraying, ignoring, repressing and rejecting ourselves

in the service of our agenda, plans, dreams

and idea of how our life should be lived.

Our unconscious is calling us to be

who we have no desire to be.

That’s the impasse that has to be made conscious

and worked through

if we are to have any chance at

living the life that is waiting for us to live it

in the time left for living.
