As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.Carl Gustav Jung
The Psychology Perspective
Today’s quote comes from Dr. Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist of the 20th century that had a profound effect on the way psychology is practiced to help individuals tap into the mythic origins of their inner nature. As Dr. Jung stated, it is our purpose to bring forward light, in essence, to create vision in the darkness that manifests around just mere existence. From this perspective, we can see a calling for humanity to find the glowing embers within the discarded ashes of the past.
As the field of analytical psychology is well aware, by tending the ash heaps of the soul’s past, we find the spirit that allows us to move beyond the depths, and realize Self outside of the confines mere existence allows us.
