“To confront a person with [their] [S]hadow is to show them their own [L]ight. Once one has experienced a few times what it is like to stand judgingly between the opposites, one begins to understand what is meant by the [S]elf. Anyone who perceives [their] shadow and [their] light simultaneously sees themself from two sides and thus gets in the middle.”

– C.G. Jung, “Good and Evil in Analytical Psychology” (1959)

“The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, “Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, “Hey, don’t worry; don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.”

– Bill Hicks, Revelations Tour, UK (1992)
