You must have guidance from within, and for that you need the attitude of the child in order to be humble and obedient, and not conceited, not having better ideas, so that you can obey the impulses that come from within.

You are then like the wheel that moves out of itself. And that wheel is the sun symbolism, it is a mandala.

The wheel has not only been since time immemorial a symbol of the sun, the sun itself has been a symbol-that wheel which moves over the sky with nobody moving it, the wheel moving by itself.

So the sun has forever been a symbol of individuation, a symbol of the man who can stand by himself and move out of himself without being pushed. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 271
