Reading & Pondering Today 9/6/2018

“In his influential book The Art of War, Sun Tzu suggests that “to know your enemy, you must become your enemy.” In this case, the enemy is usually an impulse inside ourselves that we don’t understand or don’t know how to deal with. 

As long as we’re denying, repressing, or minimizing the importance of this and other hidden urges, as long as we believe that our own dark impulses will never catch up with us or be exposed, their wisdom will continue to elude us. 

By actively finding the gifts and receiving the contribution our shadow is trying to make, we redirect its once destructive power into a force that can benefit our life. More than that, we become a role model for others to find healthy outlets for the parts of themselves that don’t conform to society’s script or to their ego ideal.”

Excerpt From

The Shadow Effect

Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson & Debbie Ford
