I am not I.
                                   I am this one
walking beside me whom I do not see,
whom at times I manage to visit,
and whom at other times I forget;
who remains calm and silent while I talk,
and forgives, gently, when I hate,
who walks where I am not,
who will remain standing when I die.

                           - Juan Ramón Jiménez



"The human psyche is so vast, and the ego frame so small, that we can never know ourselves fully." ~James Hollis, Jungian analyst
