Do we drive our vehicle looking out the rear view mirror (i.e. focused on "fixing" the past) or do we look out the windshield and choose where we're going. It seems so obvious when driving a car ... now to live that!
“The Christ image is often used because it so perfectly represents the combination of the grandiose self, as per the all-knowing son of God, and the martyred victim who is crucified precisely because of his lofty position.
“The Christ figure represents the exaggerated, idealized version of the inner self that the individual feels incapable of living up to. He feels he is being crucified by his own abilities. He may – or of course she may – on other occasions receive messages from the devil, or demons, which on their part represent the person’s feelings about the physical self that seems to be so evil and contradictory in contrast to the idealized image. Again, there is great variety of behavior here.”
