Search for purity and the primitive – Paul Gauguin

I shouldn't have – Fantastic Mr. Fox

"The natural line between the mind and body becomes an illusory boundary, a fortified fence, an armed wall separating that which is really inseparable. The desires of the flesh are pitted against the wants of the soul, and all too often the 'spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.' Man loses touch with his total organism, and the most he will allow is a mental representation, a self-image, or that total organism.
It is not exactly that man loses touch with his body. Rather, he loses touch with the unity of the body and mind, the unity of feeling and attention. The whole clarity of feeling-attention becomes disrupted and distorted, and in its place is left compulsive thinking on the one hand, and the dissociated body on the other."

–Christopher Vogler, The Writer's Journey (The Ordeal, Demonization p. 164)

(The story that inspired this card)
"The poor thing. High up on her perch, she thought she was bigger than the world. In all, it was a grand day for our little Blanquette. Suddenly, a cold wind blew over the mountains. The vista turned a rosy purple – and then, it was night. “Already!” said the little goat, a little bit suprised. She began to shiver. Then there was a terrible howl echoing in the mountain! She thought of the wolf. All day long she didn’t think of him but now…"
