What is shadow?

Deepak Chopra
Alternative & Complementary Medicine
Let's focus on the shadow as the area where consciousness has become distorted to the point that evil choices might be made.

I want to speak in general of the hidden places where we all repress things we feel guilty about or ashamed of. I will call this place the shadow, and I believe there are certain true things to be said about it:

Six things true of shadow:
  • The shadow is personal and universal at the same time.
  • Anything can be stored there.
  • Whatever is stored in darkness becomes distorted.
  • The intensity of shadow energies is a way of getting noticed.
  • Bringing consciousness to any energy defuses it.
  • The shadow itself is not evil and therefore not your enemy.
