Reflections – The Importance of Self-work

Suffering is the catalyst for growth if it is transmuted accordingly, the work to own the shadow and not suppress it or project it, within and without. The battle inside,  to manifest the real “I”, the center of true Being, Knowledge and Love.  John Lennon said, “all you need is love” and you hear it everywhere these days in the New Age World that “love is the answer”.
