This is a major reason for the epidemic of anxiety and depression in Western society today. We have long believed that the path to healing, spiritual growth, and happiness can be found by accepting mainstream beliefs and devoting our energy to straight-forward, one-sided, stiff-upper-lip, upward-striving, people-impressing mental effort! But, the true path takes a wandering way deep into the dark forest of our unconscious selves.

Unfortunately, they don’t, and they never will until we can find and face them.
