Now, I am not writing this to let you know about the news of the day.
I challenge you to think deeper!
Carl Jung talks about the Shadow. It exists in all of us (Yes in
you and me too!). It is the parts that we hide, shame and suppress.
It is the prison cell were we lock all we feel would be unacceptable
to share. It can show up in anger, fear, control, selfishness,
indiscretions…you name it!
We run from our shadows but we can’t. Each time we think a ‘bad
thought’ or do something we feel is unacceptable , we run more… and
guess what is there right behind us?
The Shadow can run our lives. It can be the reason you scream at your
spouse, eat pounds of chocolate, have a secret sex life. This part
can sabotage our lives when we least expect it.
When we can love ‘all of us’ and accept our duality we will be able to freer.
Again, I don’t know why this man hurt himself and others but maybe the answers lies in the shadow?
