Courting the Mystery – Toko-pa

http://toko-pa.com/2015/05/25/courting-the-mystery/

Click on the link for this lovely post by Toko-pa, about dreams, and the importance of mystery or not knowing. We like her quote from James Hillman:-

“Like the fox in the forest is not mine just because I see it, so the fox in the dream is not mine just because I dream it.”

and the idea that dream ‘answers’ appear in metaphorical and riddling terms:-

‘Like any good fairy tale, the task is not to find an answer, but to become the kind of person who knows which way to go.’
