Signal-to-Noise

At some point in life, quotes go from simply having intellectual value - mere wisecracks, quips with a nice ring, to being what you know to be Truth - your truth that echoes your human experience. Just like the fountain of honey oozing out of this here beehive, dripping down the sides of my mouth, my soul, and running down my elbows:

"Whatever is rejected from the self, appears in the world as an event.”  – Carl Gustav Jung.

This Jung quote posits that whatever you can’t resolve must repeat itself. It's a prompting to do work: take the time, hold a candle to your soul, let down your guard, and do that work. Take the tautology for double emphasis. Especially now, with the rise of attention merchants scrambling for headspace, now when "mindshare" is a valuable resource, filter out the unwanted signals and tune in to the frequency of your own higher calling.
