First environments

At Bollingen I am in the midst of my true life, I am most deeply myself.*
Carl Jung

the world within you will create the world around you**
Erwin McManus

Of the different environments a day comprises,
The first is the one most personally shaped,
The one we have carefully formed
to take us most deeply into ourselves,
Where we re-member who we are and what we want to bring to others
for a new day.

For some, the first environment is extended throughout the day,
For more,
Having to move into spaces shaped by others,
The first environment is carried within their heart and mind and soul.

While the knowing of the mind is limited by frontiers, the soul has no frontiers.^

*Quoted in Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals;
