…the soul is a site for excavation - holding archeological stores of emotional meaning to be examined without judgement. Refusal to embrace a negative, darker side of being is tantamount to denial. Truth, particularly about the self, cannot be known if any aspect of the soul should is repudiated. The true seeker who longs for self-realization journeys wherever the soul leads.
