Deep Thoughts - John Welwood

All our personality defenses are completely understandable, and all have their own intelligence. They also provide us with a path. Feeling the weight and constrictions of the conditioned personality is what motivates us to seek our larger nature. The problem is not our personality but our refusal to keep growing beyond it -- which leaves us suffering from a case of arrested development.

~ John Welwood, Toward a Psychology of Awakening
