Writing a memoir, especially one that includes exploration of the dark side of everything, including God, is hard work. It makes me want to go to analysis because I have begun to see much I haven’t see before. Stuff I didn’t even know existed. Amina is one.

Loren Pedersen writes, “the more in touch with the inner feminine a man is, the more comfortable he is likely to be with inner self-exploration. The anima, as a potential connection to his unconscious, may appear personified in his dreams and fantasies.”

When I picked up his book Dark Hearts, one that was leant to me, I had little interest. That was at the beginning of August. I am now the proud owner of the book and reading it at the fast clip of about two pages a day. No meat here. Hah!

    I always thought it was anima, as in Jung’s anima and animus, but I know very little about it.
    For something totally unrelated: if you want to read an excellent book try “The Untethered Soul” by Michael A. Singer. It’s worth a hundred Courses In Miracles, but is another one that might need a second and maybe even a third read.
