How and Why We Summon the Sacred

No doubt about it. The time, or zeit, is certainly jumping with Geist, a spirit of a most spectacular character. An arcing rainbow of colors is rising today from the world’s spiritual traditions, given power by the urgent questing of so many people all over the world for unmediated experience of the Source and for guidance into a future that belies all human knowing.

The Gifts of a Mythic Life

I have come to believe that life is allied with myth in order that we may advance along an evolutionary path that carries us nearer to the spiritual source that lures us into greater becoming. It is for this that myth remains closer than breathing, nearer than our hands and feet. I think it is built into our very being. Myth is not a no thing, an insubstantial conceptual will-o'-the-wisp. It is coded into our cells and waters the seas of the unconscious. It dwells in our little finger and plays along the spine as well as the spirit. It grants us access to the DNA of the human psyche, the source patterns originat­ing in the ground of our being. It gives us the key to our personal and historical exis­tence.
