creative force – Women Who Run With Wolves – Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Jungian analyst Clarissa Pinkola Estés:

“The creative force flows over the terrain of our psyches looking for the natural hollows,

the arroyos, the channels that exist in us.

We become its tributaries, its basins; we are its pools, ponds, streams, and sanctuaries.

The wild creative force flows into whatever beds we have,

those we are born with as well as those we dig with our own hands.

We don’t have to fill them, we only have to build them.”

– Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run with the Wolves
