The forest

“The forest, the labyrinth, the other world, the underground world, the sea and the deep sea are poetic and symbolic descriptions of the way we perceive the realm of the unconscious. It is the place where we are when we get lost, and it is the place where we need to go to find ourselves. Individuation, the need to live fully in harmony with our interior, is a journey that leads the ego to the forest. “
