I think the internal quest to be fully human is a quest for wholeness. Our divided selves reflect our distance from the ideal. As we pursue full integration; an undivided heart, we are in fact moving towards the actualization of our person. This pursuit inevitably integrates all of the pathos within an individual. Such an integration artfully encompasses symmetry.

    Great thought….I am one with the idea that to become whole and fully human are one and the same. However it rather uncomfortably suggests that I embrace the shadow in myself and come to terms with the things that, at the deepest level, i know about myself but do not want to know. More often than not I would prefer to have relief from the symptoms of my divided heart rather than seek the courage to be healed of one. I consider the quest for this wholeness to be the greatest and most meaningful human journey, the one that requires the greatest courage.
