HEART & SOUL GUIDANCE SYSTEMS INCREASINGLY PREVAIL
ALL THINKING ATROPHIES
A SOOTHING, COMFORTING RETURN
AKASHA TAO CORE OF BEING
Now your soul has come to take you back.
Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.
When it falls slow and free.
Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.
Until its calmness can claim you.
Be excessively gentle with yourself.
No one knew the name of this day;
Born quietly from deepest night.
It hid its face in light,
Demanded nothing for itself,
opened out to offer each of us
A field of brightness that traveled ahead,
Providing in time, ground to hold our footsteps
And the light of thought to show the way.
It dwells within the silence with elegance
To create a space for all our words,
Drawing us to listen inward and outward.
Where the Eucharist of the ordinary happens,
Transforming our broken fragments
into an eternal continuity that keeps us.
That is more gracious than the smallness
That fuels us with fear and force,
A dignity that trusts the form a day takes.
For being betrothed to the unknown
And for the secret work
Through which the mind of the day
And wisdom of the soul become one.

How an existential crisis
precipitated an artistic masterpiece
Despite the emotional turmoil that plagued Jung,
forcing him to resort to yoga practices
and even clinging on to the table
in order to keep himself together,
he persevered in compiling
his artistic and literary magnum opus,
knowing that the very salvation
of his own soul was at stake.
Be silent and listen:
have you recognized your madness
and do you admit it?
are completely mired in madness?
Do you not want to recognize your madness
and welcome it in a friendly manner?
You wanted to accept everything.
So accept madness too.
and it will suddenly dawn on you.
Madness is not to be despised and not to be feared,
but instead you should give it life …
you should also not spurn madness,
since it makes up such a great part of your nature …
Be glad that you can recognize it,
for you will thus avoid becoming its victim.
to all teachings and philosophies,
but even more to daily life,
since life itself is full of craziness
and at bottom utterly illogical.
only so that he can make rules for himself.
That is its mystery and its unknown law.
What you call knowledge
is an attempt to impose
something comprehensible on life.
--C. G. Jung,
