How many of those who are insecure seek power over others as a compensation for inadequacy and wind up bringing consequences down upon their heads and those around them? How many hide out in their lives, resist the summons to show up, or live fugitive lives, jealous, projecting onto others, and then wonder why nothing ever really feels quite right. How many proffer compliance with the other, buying peace at the price of soul, and wind up with neither?More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Today, as we have seen, fascism and communism are discredited, but are replaced by a paraphilic consumer culture driven by fantasy, desperately in search of distractions and escalating sensations, and a fundamentalist culture wherein the rigors of a private journey are shunned in favor of an ideology that, at the expense of the paradoxes and complexities of truth, favors one-sided resolutions, black-and-white values, and a privileging of one's own complexes as the norm for others.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What I refuse to face within myself will meet me in the exterior world through you, not as you are, but as I have so construed you.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The act of consciousness is central; otherwise we are overrun by the complexes.
The hero in each of us is required to answer the call of individuation.
We must turn away from the cacaphony of the outerworld to hear the inner voice.
When we can dare to live its promptings, then we achieve personhood.
We may become strangers to those who thought they knew us, but at least we are no longer strangers to ourselves.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the end, we are only tiny frightened animals, doing our best to survive amid other tiny frightened animals.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
