Myths

If you share my interest in the significance of myths, visit the work of the late Joseph Campbell.
“Myths are stories of our search through the ages for truth, for meaning, for significance. We all need to tell and understand our story. We all need help in our passages from birth to life and then to death. We need life to signify, to touch the eternal, to understand the mysterious, to find out who we are.

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experience on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. That’s what it’s all finally about,
and that’s what these stories help us to find within ourselves.”
