One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

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

How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also If I am to be whole.
― Carl Gustav Jung
