"Now I Happened to Myself"

Came across this great quote from Carl Jung speaking about an experience he had at the age of twelve years old.

"Suddenly I had the overwhelming experience of having just emerged from a dense cloud. I knew all at once: Now I am myself! It was as if a wall of mist were at my back, and behind that wall there was not yet an 'I'. But at this moment I came upon myself. Previously I had existed, too, but everything had merely happened to me. Now I happened to myself."

Isn't that brilliant? Life is so fascinating and full of miracles I am deeply saddened by people who can't see that and spend time fighting and warring. Here's another great quote, this time from Pema Chodron.

"Even if you live to be 100, it's really a very short time. So why not spend it undergoing this process of evolution, of opening your mind and heart, connecting with your true nature - rather than getting better and better at fixing, grasping, freezing, closing down?"

This is amazing and very much like my own many and varied experiences of a kind of dejavu.
