Our mystical journey is not a solitary one. To be ‘safe’ we are taught a need for three points of contact. Propelled by a compulsion beyond free will, our journey is a strong correlation between anger, rage and creativity. There is a classic Greek conception of the “daimonic” or darker side of our being which is as much concerned with creativity as with negative reactions. A dynamic unrest that exists in us all that forces us into the unknown, leading to self-destruction and/or self-discovery. The artist knows that dark and light come from the same source, with a little help from Shadow . . .
