“Of Mere Being” is about “selfless Self,” the center-point from which reality may be freshly observed at each instant, the cross-over point and bridge of unconscious to conscious.

The title is sourced from the poem of the same name by Wallace Stevens and from Carl Jung’s famous line in his autobiographical book, Memories, Dreams, Reflections:

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