From Man and His Symbol

“Our attitude must be like that of the mountain pine: it does not get annoyed when its growth is obstructed by a stone, nor does it make plans about how to overcome the obstacles. It merely tries to feel whether it should grow more to the left or to the right, toward the slope or away from it. Like the tree, we should give in to this almost imperceptible yet powerfully dominating impulse, an impulse that comes from the urge toward unique creative self -realization. And this is a process in which one must repeatedly seek out and find something that is not yet known to anyone. The guiding hints or impulses comes not from the ego, but from the totality of the psyche: the Self.

Each of us has an unique task of self-realization.”
