shadow

one cannot reject, push away, and attempt to externalize the negative portions of the shadow self. this leads not only to pathology, but hatred of other, violence, and suffering for all.

recognize and observe these parts of the self. accept them as a part of you, but do not allow yourself to become these impulses and emotions.

imagine the texture of walking through mud - tire tracks make an imprint like clay, the scales of a mechanical reptile.

 

individuals driving down the highway with a mattress and box spring attached to their roof during a rain/sleet snow soaked evening. perhaps one could recommend sleeping on the floor?
