When we begin to 'grow up' we start to sort our personality into piles of good or bad. We banish our bad aspects to the subconscious and we try our best to resist and suppress them. They become shadows that we are desperate to keep hidden. On the other hand, we develop and flaunt the good aspects of our personality. We remain conscious of only that aspect of ourselves. So beware, the more consciously refined and developed our positive personality is, the more shadow we have built up on the other side.
