Spread 221 – Out Of The Dark September 22, 2013

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

221-Out Of The DarkIt is the intricate dance between the conscious and the subconscious that is constantly unfolding on the pages of my journal.

This quote by Carl Jung beautifully supports this month’s art journaling workshop Out of The Dark: “There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

Oh so mysterious and wonderful. The light and the dark are so intertwined. You have gone to the dark to find the light wonderfully here! Love!

I love that quote and your spread.

I love this passage….I deal with people all the time in my work, who are addicted to something so that they can’t feel their soul pain. I relate too, thank you for wanting to go so deep with your work, which is so magnetising to the eye…x

thanks for your post. It seems very appropriate for me as I have just experienced having my bubble burst due to intense fear. However, perhaps I needed to experience this fear and feel the pain of it before moving forward into a lighter space.

What great quote and it goes so perfectly with your spread. Facing your fears is not for the faint of heART.

This was very meaningful. I am struggling with this right now and having a tough time facing and working through the painful things in my life. It is a lost feeling to be in the dark.

Oh, Orly! I am so glad I know you and get to see your work. We have to have pain to have pleasure.
