Nailed by Marie Louise

For the time being one is doing this or that, but whether it is a woman or a job, it is not yet what is really wanted, and there is always the fantasy that sometime in the future the real thing will come about.... The one thing dreaded throughout by such a type of man is to be bound to anything whatever. - Marie Louise von Franz, Puer Aeternus

Rereading my essay On Karma, the part about following my bliss sent me to one of my favorite books where I rediscovered this quote.

I am doing exactly what I want, all of the time, conditions being what they are. That caveat is crucial to transforming what I'm doing into a choice.

Yes. Well put. The only constraints I suffer are those I have chosen.

I read carefully your quote as well on Karma note and humbly thank you to post it on your side
I think I am identify myself with the quote that you cited here from your favorite book...
I am learning to accept it. I am grateful for your writing. There is a way in this world that messages are coming through no matter what. Just need to close my eyes and listen to my heart. The most difficult though and impossible is following this man/woman unique path not to be bound…
