To Become Fully Human means to Individuate, and Individuation is not an easy quest, because it requires Consciousness. And Consciousness is bigger than all of us, for it’s not open to census-taking. Once you’ve taken the bait tossed into your fishbowl (my bait was midlife crisis); and once you’ve convinced yourself you don’t want to wiggle off the hook, you begin to understand how Becoming Fully Human is not a selfish thing, but a responsibility to humankind we all share as in the earthly world, we make conscious the unconscious.
Truth is, today I’m about 3/4 fully human. Yesterday I was 3/8. Both better than 100% fish. And, let me tell you, I’ve seen things!
What’s in your fishbowl?
