Just came across this quote today, and it made me pause. It made me take a moment to digest its elegance and simplicity. Take a few minutes and really stop to think about it. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong… just enjoy it.

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”

- Carl Jung (July 26, 1875 – June 6, 1961) Swiss psychiatrist, an influential thinker and the founder of analytical psychology.

I find this simple article so simple, yet so profound…

The SPIRITUAL well being of mankind have to have a purpose… we as a whole, should consider not just making a little light in the darkness of mere being, but to have the courage to live and discover each of our own Vision and Purpose…

Thanks for your website.
