Joy is … becoming whole through shadow work. Such a freedom to own all your parts. When you do shadow work, you’re not just creating awareness and integrating the ‘not so good’ character traits, but also the ‘good’ ones that you may have previously rejected, but admired in other people. You can own your insecurity, your pettiness, your cheapness etc.—all those pieces that your mind has deemed ‘not perfect’ or ‘not nice.’ And you can own the parts you see in others that you’re inner critic or wounded child has said you’re not, like your coolness, your amazingness, your beauty, your light. Become whole—you’re worth it.
7th day of the Jewish month of Adar II – the month of Joy
