Writing…in the end, is about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well.
Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink.
We read to know we are not alone.
– C.S. Lewis
Let our essays animate and activate you
Myth opens doors where we didn’t know there were doors.
Certain writings can carry and transmit an essence, an awakening force, helping us to step forward ever more in the life we have been given.
Take a look some of what we have to offer, and let it ignite you, move you forward, even if it just for the next step you take.
From ‘Pathways To Bliss‘
by Joseph Campbell
A person who is truly gripped by a calling, by a dedication, by a belief, by a zeal, will sacrifice his personal security, his personal relationships, prestige, and will think nothing of personal development – he will give himself entirely to his myth.
The awakening of awe is key here, being seized by something so that you are pulled out of where you’ve been.
It is not always easy or possible to know by what it is that you are seized. You will find yourself doing silly things, and you have been seized but you don’t know what the dynamics are.
You have to be struck by that awakening of awe, of fascination, of that experience of the mystery – the awareness of your bliss.
If you want to find out what the myth is by which you are living, what you want to find out is what that unconscious or subliminal thing is that makes you do those peculiar, irrational things, and gives you problems that your consciousness has to then resolve.
