"Thoroughly Unprepared, We Walk into the Afternoon of Life." - Jung
“Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.” -Jung.
The practice of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, your morning coffee, running, moments in the bath, whatever it is that allows you the time to see inward and reflect, are the valuable tools which help us clearly notice the present. What serves you now may not serve you tomorrow. This looking inward enable us to notice and see what no longer serves, cultivate the strength to change in order to create truths and ideals to better serve our constantly changing reality. Every day, every moment we walk into the unknown. Your practice can help you move forward with out fear, with less fear, with fear in check allowing you to bravely walk and experience more.
