goal of life is to realize the self. The self is an archetype that represents
the transcendence of all opposites, so that every aspect of your personality
is expressed equally. You are then neither and both male and female, neither
and both ego and shadow, neither and both good and bad, neither and both
conscious and unconscious, neither and both an individual and the whole
of creation. And yet, with no oppositions, there is no energy, and you
cease to act. Of course, you no longer need to act.
