The shadow, the hidden side of the human psyche. As Jung wrote in his autobiography, "I had to try to gain power over my fantasies; for I realized that if I did not do so, I ran the risk of their gaining power over me." Although many people use the word "shadow" to refer only to the darker parts of our nature, it contains also the golden selves that we find it too risky to see or to allow ourselves to manifest.
How much better would the world be??!
