The unexamined life

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

Right now, and for quite some time, I’ve found the most amazing material shining a light on self-inquiry, transformative coaching, writing and Teal organizations. But I’m acutely aware, without robust dialogue, online and off, that I could be deluded into a single paradigm that panders to my egoic identity.

At its simplest, this is no more than confirmation bias.

Do you ever feel the same?

But then again, in moments of clarity, I ask myself if we’re not journeying within, to understand this oh-so-complex life (and world), where on earth do we go for help?

Reality TV?




Or work? (This was my drug of choice.)

More to the point what’s obscuring so many people from seeing that life is not lived out there -- change my circumstances and everything will be OK -- but deep within. Yes, a spiritual context if you will.

What do you think?
