“The unconscious is impulsive, emotional, sensitive, and unpredictable. It has its shortcomings. It needs supervision. But it can be brilliant. It’s capable of processing blizzards of data and making daring creative leaps. Most of all, it is also wonderfully gregarious.

It longs and pushes for love… Of all the blessings that come with being alive, it is the most awesome gift.”
