A Jungian scholar presents a similar theme in his book The Mirror Mind. Author William Johnson, suggests we examine our own conscience regularly, “Not a fault-finding mission, but a survey of one’s abilities…” Johnson suggests that our responsibility is to hone our talents for not to do so leaves the world worse off and deprived – perhaps in uncaring hands. This book is a thoughtful meditation.
