"...the discord and the tribulation are riches..."



(2013 painting by bz)

Only the living presence of the eternal images can lend the human psyche a dignity which makes it morally possible for a person to stand by his own soul, and be convinced that it is worth his while to persevere with it.  Only then will he realize that the conflict is in him and that the discord and the tribulation are riches which should not be squandered by attacking others.  ~Carl Jung

  4. An insightful and thought-provoking quote, Bonnie, and another beautiful image which illustrates the point very well. The figures in the painting seem to have preserved their dignity.
