Friday, November 14th, 2014 Focus: I choose to embrace my true self and follow my own star.


Dreams, said Carl Jung, are the voice of nature within us. Hermann Hesse predicted that when enough individuals begin to listen to na­ture’s voice and pay heed to their own dreams — including their visions, in­tuitions, and instinctive promptings — the greatest revolution in all history will unfold. This is not an ending, but rather a beginning.

By following their dreams and allowing the natural faces of their true inner selves to shatter their care­fully contrived, artfully constructed, culturally sanctioned masks, they are removing the underpinnings — one pin at a time, of course — of a dysfunc­tional system that thrives on fear, guilt, deception, manipulation, exploita­tion, boredom, negativity, thoughtlessness, literalism, dogmatism, and the overall constriction of consciousness.

Any chink made in the armor is a major victory, heralding the day when the light will shine through all of the disparaging mythic memorabilia that keeps us mentally preoccupied and satisfied captives in what Plato called the darkness of the cave of ignorance. When each of us chooses to embrace our true self and follow our own star, the real revolution will commence.

RECOMMENDED BOOK OF THE DAY

The Myth of the Great Ending: Why We’ve Been Longing for the End of Days Since the Beginning of Time
by Joseph M. Felser.

Doomsday lore has been a part of culture, a myth that colors how we perceive the world. What if we haven’t recognized the true message of these myths? Blending history, psychology, metaphysics, and story, philosopher and author Joseph Felser explores the spiritual questions raised by these enduring myths. The author suggests that our obsession with “The End of the World” hides a repressed, healthy longing for reconciliation with our inner and outer worlds–with nature and our own natural spirituality. He urges us to recognize and act upon that longing.
