Quotes {287} ~ Contemplating Who You Could Be If You Stare Into The Abyss

“This week, contemplate who you could be if you stare into the abyss. The terror of mortality, insanity, suffering, and of malevolence. By voluntarily doing that, you call upon the strongest part of yourself to respond. If you look into the abyss long enough, past when the abyss looks into you, you don’t see the abyss, you see who you could become in the form of the great ancestral figures nested inside the catastrophe of life. Who you could be is the solution to malevolence and suffering.” ~ Jordan Peterson

    1. Thank you for your comment Kevin, I hope you are well and smiling. A very interesting and thought provoking point my friend. Many cultures speak of the void, abyss etc and perhaps they are conceptualisations of the same essence.. I believe so however there may be variations. 🙏🏻♥️
