There is a part of us which neither listens to the voice of reason, nor easily submits to social and moral conventions. Like a child, it relentlessly pursues whatever catches it’s fancy and keeps playing with fire. This energy can, equally, help us actualize our heroic potential or set us on the path to self-destruction. The key to making this energy positive lies in what we do with the emotional and psychic wounds, which are a necessary part of our growth.
