Who You Truly Are

who looks inside jung quote

“If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.”

“People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

“We cannot change anything unless we accept it.”

“What you resist, persists.”

“The best political, social, and spiritual work we can do is to withdraw the projection of our shadow onto others.”

“You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.”

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”

“There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.”

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”

“Space flights are merely an escape, a fleeing away from oneself, because it is easier to go to Mars or to the moon than it is to penetrate one’s own being.”
