The separation between your conscious and unconscious mind is your greatest enemy. The moment the separation is eliminated you are no longer governed by inner forces you do not know and therefore fear. Yet, your greatest fear and resistance is the elimination of this separating wall.
You struggle so fiercely against it. This is such folly, for only in this separation are you helpless. And only in this separation are you practically forced to ascribe your unhappiness to dark powers that seem to have nothing to do with you.
Thus you fear the world, as well as your own inner being. Because you fear your own inner being, you do not want to look at it. Because you do not want to look at it, you separate yourself from it, and it therefore seems as if it needed to be feared.
Not wanting to look at it logically results in lack of awareness, lack of knowing what is going on, not only about one’s inadvertent destructiveness, but also about the creative power that could work for, not against you.
This is one of the important vicious circles you stubbornly refuse to change into a benign one.
