The Inner Voice

The inner voice is a voice of a fuller life, of a wider, more comprehensive consciousness. That is why, in mythology, the birth of a hero or symbolic rebirth coincides with sunrise, for the growth of personality is synonymous with an increase of self-consciousness. For the same reason most heroes are characterized by solar attributes, and the moment of birth of their greater personality is known as illumination.

~ C.G. Jung
