The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses 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~

  1. Love this one. We so often try to hide the dark bits but it’s so important to shine a light on them.
