By Jonathan Dunnemann
Let me give some examples. When we address why a depression has fallen upon us, or why we suffer panic attacks, or why we repeatedly sabotage ourselves, we have to track the "logic" of our symptom down to what the soul wants from us. (Our symptoms are "logical" expressions of an inner conflict, an embodiment of the contretemps between oppression and expression.) Why, in a depression, has the committee of the inner life" withdrawn cooperation from the agenda of the CEO ego? What do "they" want? Why has generalized anxiety, which is an inescapable aspect of our existential condition, chosen this venue for its panicky focus?
The road ahead can come from only one place - inside. No one else can identify our paths for us. Finding and successfully following one's true path comes from our inner guidance and wisdom.
The path begins with a vision - a vision of what life looks like - at work, at home, at play and in relationship. This vision informs one of one's place in life and on the planet. One's vision, when sought and discovered inside, and tested, provides a sense of worth and value that defines one's place on the planet
