Humans being

Some Jungian analysts believe that the first 45 minutes after awakening are uniquely generative and creatively potent. The mind is still, savouring its experience of liminal space, and ego’s defence systems are down. The question “What’s next?” does not occur.  


When something meaningful and perhaps even revelatory happens without any apparent cause, we call that a coincidence.  Afterward, we’ll say it came “out of the blue,” meaning out of the depths. For every coincidence we recognize, there are a million we don’t. Everything belongs.

One shovel, one hole

If you have a shovel, devote yourself to the digging of one big hole. The digging of one big hole is work. The digging of a lot of little holes is activity.

Men who dig deep holes are not often seen. Men who dig shallow holes are never not seen.
