The stars have been used for the purpose of navigation and finding our way from place to place for millennia. But what about finding our own way in the world, our purpose and reason for being here? These pieces were inspired by a quote by Jungian Analyst, Marie – Louise Von Franz, which reads “Following your own star means isolation, not knowing where to go, having to find out a completely new way for yourself instead of just going on the trodden path everybody else runs along. That's why there's always been a tendency in humans to project the uniqueness and the greatness of their own inner self onto outer personalities and become the servants, the devoted servants, admirers, and imitators of outer personalities. It is much easier to admire a great personality and become a pupil or follower of a guru or a religious prophet, or an admirer of a big, official personality - a President of the United States - or live your life for some military general whom you admire. That is much easier than following your own star. (p. 71)” ― Marie-Louise von Franz, The Way of The Dream. I read this when I need a kick up the backside or I forget about my courage when it comes to living my OWN life.
