shadow

Without having finished any of the books I am currently reading (or writing), I started reading a new book, Robert Bly's A Little Book on the Human Shadow.  This is because I just read, in another book I am currently reading, Ken Wilbur's The Spectrum of Consciousness, his chapter on reclaiming the shadow.

Bly said, "If any help [is] going to arrive to lift me out of my misery, it [will] come from the dark side of my personality."

He speaks of the yin and yang, the balance, of course, of light and dark.
