As discussed in the opening chapters, anima is a very personal and private thing. Someone’s anima represents not the image he projects to others, but what he actually is on the inside, deep below the surface. Anima deals not with outward actions (behaviors), but represents something much deeper and more meaningful. It is the true map by which we navigate the world around us, and it predicts our destiny. The modern-day servants of society need a consistent anima to serve as a type of “inner armor.” This armor is worn closest to the heart and protects the noble servant from the insidious self-deception that seeks to undermine his ability to see the world consistently and correct the wrongs in himself and others.
