Clarissa Pinkola Estés: The Doors to the World of the Wild Self

The doors to the world of the wild Self are few 
but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, 
if you have an old, old story, that is a door. 
If you love the sky and the water so much you 
almost cannot bear it, that is a door. 
If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, 
a sane life, that is a door.
