Now I Am Myself

October 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

“… I was taking the long road to school […] when suddenly for a single moment I had the overwhelming impression of having just emerged from a dense cloud. I knew all at once; now I am myself! It was as if a wall of mist were at my back, and behind that wall there was not yet an “I.” But at this moment I came upon myself. Previously I had existed too, but everything had merely happened to me. Now I happened to myself. Now I knew: I am myself now, now I exist. Previously I had been willed to do this and that; now I willed.”

-Carl G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections (pp 32-33)
