My first musing….

I came across this wonderful quote today as I watched a documentary on the famous Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung entitled ‘Matter of Heart’.  Towards the end of the film, Sir Laurens van der Post said of Antonia ‘Toni’ Wolff, Jung’s patient and colleague: ‘the rarer, the more exceptional the spirit, the deeper the psychological suffering‘. In just a few words, van der Post puts what could certainly be regarded as a positive slant on psychological suffering by linking it to insight and understanding.  I like that!
