‘The subconcious always strives to create an impossible situation to force the individual to give the best he or she has got. Otherwise you would be satisfied with less, you wouldn’t be complete, you wouldn’t realize yourself. You need an impossible situation, in which you have to hand over your own will and your own intellectual capacity and have no choise but trust in the impersonal force of growth and development.’

C.G. Jung

    Here here! (although sometimes frightening) Jung is one of my all-time heroes. Thanks for bringing this insightful perspective into my mind right now.

  • Yes, Jung was a wise man.

    Something I needed to hear tonight too Martin – and I’m feeling a bit like that man too! Powerful work.

  • Thanks, Helene. Jung is very inspiring. Oh well, let’s have faith … we have no choice … (deep sigh)

    Wonderful creation again Martin-not always easy most people try avoid impossible situations at all cost-great reminder that you cannot grow unless you surrender and find the way out…..

  • Thanks, Renate. I absolutely agree with you.
