So enlightened... yet other people´s darkness bother me terribily.... do I ask myself why? Am I really so balanced if I cannot have compassion for those who are not? Am I really so lightened if other people´s darkness diminishes my light instead of me lightening up their darkness? Am I really so loving when I cannot love those who do not think and act like me? When I cannot understand other people´s pains and anger and be sympathetic instead of judgemental? Instead of thinking myself better for living / acting a certain way or according to certain rules? When I see negativity in others instead of positivity? What I notice is what I recognize in myself. What bothers me externally is what I have not resolved within myself. "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious."
~Carl Jung, "The Philosophical Tree”
