I come from a family of crusty old bigots, part descendant of Nazi Germans and part descendant of religious fanatics. The religious fanatics believe god will kill everyone that does not agree with him and his angry ways. The Nazi’s believed in a man with a similar point of view. One is a veiled belief, the other one was courageous enough to unveil his ugliness. Our shadow entity is similar. What we believe in our unconscious is our shadow entity. What it contains as structures is what formulates our life and health and death. In your deeper shadow self, you hold beliefs you could never imagine exist. I encourage you to understand your shadow self deeply, so as to understand yourself deeply. Each person has a shadow self. That part of you that creates every detail of your reality and tends to believe in victimhood or the right to be arrogant and attack or be attacked in absolutely regular situations. Even the most ordinary smiley faced human has such a reality. And until challenged or questioned, very little true joy is possible. Therefore, the need for profound awareness. Therefore, the need of self inquiry.
