DSC_8141Human consciousness was created to the end that it may (1) recognize its descent from a higher unity, (2) pay due regard to this Source, (3) execute its commands intelligently and responsibly, and (4) thereby afford the psyche as a whole the optimum degree of life and development.

Carl Jung

The pure consciousness… does not look at things and does not ignore, annihilate, or negate them. It accepts them fully, in complete oneness with them. It looks “out of them” as though fulfilling the role of consciouness not for itself only but for them also.

Thomas Merton
