The act of consciousness is central; otherwise we are overrun by the complexes.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
In the second half of life, the questions become: 'Who, apart from the roles you play, are you? What does the soul ask of you? Do you have the wherewithal to shift course, to deconstruct your painfully achieved identity, risking failure, marginalization and loss of collective approval?' No small task.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We best serve intimate relationship by becoming sufficiently developed in ourselves that we do not need to feed off others.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Anger is generally seen as an unwelcome presence in our midst, however natural it may be. Although each person, and each society, is charged with how anger is to be appropriately channeled, the denial of anger, or its continuous repression, is a deep source of our psychopathology and will invariably seek its expression in a less healthful fashion.More James Hollis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
