Self-examination does not lead to life balance or acceptance from others – it leads to greater freedom & authenticity.

If we don’t enter into self-examination we tend to seek

comfort over greatness

safety over risk

reassurance over authenticity

the predictable over the unknown

the well-worn path over forging our own.

Jung said that neurosis is choosing inauthentic suffering over authentic suffering. That’s pretty much it.

Self-examination doesn’t mean that life is rosy all the time; it means that we are free to adventure into the rich jungle of our most authentic life.

Self-examination is a commitment to be in a conscious relationship with your soul.
