One thought on “Station 5 – Re-awakening the Mythos”

  1. Richard E MacKay says:

    What is the “great movement” that we are experiencing in human history now? I believe all great art and authentic myth must flow from this reality.

    What I think may not be reflected by anyone else. My answer would be that we realize our “Living in Oneness”; there might be a better way to articulate it. That we see the interconnectedness of each of us, we grasp the interconnectedness of our diverse cultures, and that we see our dependence and inter-relatedness with all life on the planet. I see this not just as a historical but perhaps beyond that as an evolutionary moment in life on our planet.

    Beyond my proclivity for facticity, the question for my life is “What is my Ultimate Story that guides my life?”
