Weekly Science Report June 18, 2014   “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Joseph Campbell       Introduction   I created this publication with the support of Graham Hancock and John Anthony West to share news and information on various disciplines to include paleontology, space sciences, genetics and archaeology.  My goal behind sharing this publication has always been very simple, by sharing knowledge we can make our world a better place.  Since the beginning of the internet age we have always heard of the world being drawn together but through my investigations I’ve never found a publication like the Weekly Science Report.  This publication is my contribution to bring people together and share ideas and discoveries with my fellow man.   I hope you enjoy this publication and that the content challenges and inspires you!   Steve Detwiler      News Articles    Paleontology, Evolution and Prehistoric Studies    What's for Dinner?

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe to match your nature with Nature - Joseph Campbell
A passage that reads loud and clear from The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers: "The story that we have in the West, so far as it is based on the Bible, is based on a view of the universe that belongs to the first millennium B.C. It does not accord with our concept either of the universe or of the dignity of man. It belongs entirely somewhere else. We have today to learn to get back into accord with the wisdom of nature and realize again our brotherhood with the animals and with the water and the sea."

“People say that what we are seeking is a meaning of life. I don’t think this is what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive.” Joseph Campbell, from Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth with Bill Moyers

Hard to believe that Matt will be graduating from Riverside HS tomorrow. It has been great having just him home these past two years to entertain Dan and me. I know I will miss him at unexpected times when he leaves for Ohio State. He has chosen his friends well (I will miss them, too, so please stop by when you are in town!), worked hard and made time for fun. While he may not know precisely what he'll be doing, job wise, for the rest of his life, he will continue to have a myriad of experiences from which he can choose his path. I'm not the least bit worried. That competitiveness and work ethic will take him wherEVER he chooses to go! Choosing the path.I would tell Matt to "follow your bliss" as per Joseph Campbell. That has never failed me, but has gotten me into periods of "uncomfortable life" when I did not follow! The other thing I would tell him is that it's good to make your decisions with your heart and your head in sync--those are likely to be good decisions. Matt's heart is a big part of ...
BLUES FOR ALLAH: SHABDA-DRIVEN ROCK & ROLL (with audio link to the concert that changed my life) “They’re a band beyond description, Like Jehovah’s favorite choir. People joining hand in hand While the Music plays the band Lord, they’re setting us on fire!” - John Barlow/Bob Weir “Spirit is something that no one destroys.” - Traffic Ever since someone first banged two rocks together, we have been aware of the power of music to transform us and lift us into transcendental states of awareness. This transportative quality of music works both individually and collectively. The renowned scholar and mythologist Joseph Campbell noted on more than one occasion that collective musical experiences often fill the same function traditionally reserved for religious services – i.e. to give people a sense of unity with both each other and the Divine. As he remarked to Blair Jackson about his experience at a Grateful Dead concert: “(W)hen you see 8,000 kids all going up in the air together . . . ...

This is an extract for one of the chapters from the book I am writing. An early draft and needs reworking. "Joseph Campbell in the “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” describes Gwion’s period in Caridwen’s womb as the “land under the waves.” This land is Bala Lake and where Caridwen and her husband Tegid lives. The can be found in Merionethshire, north Wales and is the largest lake in Wales. Bala was created from a well that overflowed cover the whole of the town of Bala. There is a strong similarity between Bala Lake and the Well of Segais. The Well of Segais is associated with the river Boyne in Ireland and the Goddess Boinne. The well was owned by Nechtan, in one version of the myth Boinne went over to the lake to gaze on it, by gazing on it would cause the well to burst, three spurts of water hit Boinne. Hitting one of her eyes, one of her feel and one of her hands. The well carried on flowing until it reach the sea creating the river Boyne. In another version he walks around the well three . ...

My heart is burdened with sorrow . for tonight a dear friend passed. Michael Barrett, JD,MD - a lawyer first and later a physician - was a true and long time friend. Although a lawyer for many years, it was clear that Michael was born to be a physician - a healer. He left the law and, following so many dedicated years of medical education, he reached his life's ambition ... and he was happy in the medical profession. Michael introduced me to the Joseph Campbell philosophy: " Follow Your Bliss". Such an unusual topic that always seemed to surround our time together. Michael found his bliss in his wife of 28 years - Kathy - and his daughter - Tessa Barrett - a world class runner. I recall so often being astounded by Michael's grasp of history and, in reality, of almost everything. Yet he imparted that intellect with great humor - another gift to us. I was with Michael two evenings ago. He knew his fate. And yet, he left me and another friend laughing. He simply would not allow us to share in sorrow in this ...

The good life is one hero journey after another. Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure. You are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then, if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There's always the possibility of a fiasco. But there's also the possibility of bliss. Joseph Campbell
How wonderful to live in Wigtown, Scotland's Nation Book Town. Went in to the town today to see a good friend and have a cup of hot chocolate and a scone in his Beltie Books cafe. Had a wee browse round the books and behold come across some of the Greek Myths I need for my adaptation assignment and a copy of Joseph Campbell's 'Creative Mythology - The Masks of the Gods and was able to buy them all for the remarkably cheap price of £7. Not every day you can stuff your face with scrummy food and do the research for your next short story at the same time. My reading has sent me off on a completely different and much more interesting direction. Then bumped into the smashing Renita Boyle, poet and story teller walking her dog. Grand day.

i was into comparative mythology (Joseph Campbell) from early on, so this is pretty cool.
William T. Vollmann, Neil Young, Danica McKellar (a.k.a. Winnie Cooper), Joseph Campbell, Virginia Woolf, John Steinbeck, Idi Amin Dada, and William S. Burroughs and the rest of the Friday afternoon new arrivals crew are just kicking it old school style on top of our piano. Instead of letting them loiter all delinquent-like in our store, how about taking one of them home today? Take-out pizza, a couple 40s, some Philip Roth and Hermann Hesse—sounds like the perfect Friday night to me.
'Myths' are 'stories', but are not utterly false fairy-tales. Myths and stories have their truth. They are 'true', just not literally true. To see myth or story as utterly false is to miss the point of myth and story, and to ignore what it is pointing to. I would highly recommend reading Joseph Campbell's books, "The Power of Myth" and "The Hero's Journey" in order to reflect further on this idea. They are both excellent. They illuminate and appreciate the value and human richness of stories and myths and beliefs in a very balanced way.
Truth: “There is no way you can use the word “reality” without quotation marks around it.”. -Joseph Campbell.
My agenda for today is Adult Bible Study. I bring my insights from my studies of Hinduism, Judaism, ancient Greek philosophy and Celtic Christianity into the mix. I notice my vicar (priest in charge) is amazed at my insights and the others are very bright people. To those who have no interest in spirituality or are anti-religious or dislike Christians, I pity them. The whole thing is what life is about. Some are agnostics and cannot decide if the divine exists. Some are atheists and assume that divinity does not exist. I have no problem with those who think that way, but I know the divine exists because I can perceive it in everything around me and haev experienced what happens when I trust in the divine. Living in gratitude and love, opens doors, attracts love, attracts providence, attracts opportunities and wards off dangers. Ignoring the Divine, brings nothing. As Lennon said, back in the 1970s, "Love is the answer and you know that, for sure" and to paraphrase Joseph Campbell: every moment is eternit ...

George Gilmore George Gilmore was born in Portadown. He grew up in Dublin where he joined the Irish Volunteers in 1915. Gilmore partook in the Easter Rising of 1916, the War of Independence and the Civil War when he was Officer in Command of the South County Dublin Battalion of the IRA. Gilmore, like his brothers Charlie and Harry, was imprisoned many times during 1919-1923 and once escaped from Mountjoy Gaol with Joseph Campbell. On November 25th, 1925 Gilmore lead an IRA unit who effected the escape of 19 republican prisoners from Mountjoy Gaol. He was arrested a year later and sentenced to eighteen months in Mountjoy Gaol during which time he refused to wear prison clothes in demand of political status. It is believed that Gilmore travelled to Russia to seek military training for IRA officers in 1930. A year later he was arrested in Dublin and sentenced to five years imprisonment under the Treason and Firearms Act but was released in the General Amnesty of 1932. Shortly afterwards, in August, 1932, Gil ...

A word of warning... I am giving a presentation to the second grade at Ozark North Elementary tomorrow. We'll be covering Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey. Hopefully it will be educational. Hopefully it will be entertaining. So, if your second grader comes home tomorrow telling you why Bugs Bunny is like the African god Anansi, or why Jesus is like Luke Skywalker, you'll know who to blame.

Friends and readers, more of Joseph Campbell reflections... "It's what Goethe said in Faust, but which (George) Lucas has dressed in modern idiom- the message that technology is not going to save us. Our computers, our tools, our machines are not enough. We have to rely on our intuition, our true being." "One of the many distinctions between the celebrity and the hero, is that one lives only for self while the other acts to redeem society." "One of our problems today is that we are not well acquainted with the literature of the spirit. We're interested in the news of the day and the problems of the hour." "…This whole problem of the difference between the mystical experience and the psychological crack-up: The difference is that the one who cracks up is drowning in the water in which the mystic swims. You have to be prepared for this experience." (Discussing the Great Seal of the US Dollar Bill): "When you're down on the lower levels of this pyramid, you will be either on one side or the other.

' A sacred place is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen..' -Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell observed that a society's values could be judged by the tallest buildings in a living area. In village times everything was one story and community had to unite just to be able to eat. As religion became the central bonding force in society it was displayed by large ornate cathedrals. Now the tallest buildings are banks and we have suffered for the worship of money. What I have noticed recently is that there is a TitleMax business on every corner and it is always a nicer building than the surrounding area. People now worship easy credit to ease them through their daily lives,
Joseph Campbell:"I have read somewhere of an old Chinese curse: “May you be born in an interesting time!” This is a very interesting time: there are no models for anything that is going on. Everything is changing, even the law of the masculine jungle. It is a period of free fall into the future, and each has to make his or her own way. The old models are not working; the new have not yet appeared. In fact, it is we who are even now shaping the new in the shaping of our interesting lives. And that is the whole sense (in mythological terms) of the present challenge: we are the “ancestors” of an age to come, the unwitting generators of its supporting myths, the mythic models that will inspire its lives. In a very real sense, therefore, this is a moment of creation; for, as has been said: “No one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the wine will burst the skins and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but new wine is for fresh skins” (Mark 2:22). We are to become the preparers, that i ...

And when you say 'Aha' to an art object, that is a recognition of divinity. And what divinity is it? It is your divinity, which is the only divinity there is. We are all phenomenal manifestations of a divine will to live, and that will and the consciousness of life is one in all of us, and that is what artwork expresses.” ― Joseph Campbell, The Mythic Dimension: Selected Essays 1959-87

But if a person has had the sense of the Call -- the feeling that there's an adventure for him -- and if he doesn't follow that, but remains in the society because it's safe and secure, then life dries up. And then he comes to that condition in late middle age: he's gotten to the top of the ladder, and found that it's against the wrong wall. Joseph Campbell Joseph Campbell Foundation

When folklorist Joseph Campbell urged us all to follow our bliss, he offered no instructions. Bliss fills in what’s missing. This strategy of clear, achievable steps, learned through writing exercises, was developed from “bliss-coaching” workshops and therapy sessions. Following your bliss means finding the activity or occupation that most fully expresses who you are. It means using your talents and gifts in a way that feels spiritually satisfying. Bliss offers exercises that help you to map your progress from confusion to clarity, and it illustrates how to use bodywork, intuition, dreams, immersion, and creative imagination for greater motivation. Finding bliss is the ultimate spiritual joy. Bliss covers common psychological blocks and facilitators, self-awareness exercises, your inner guidance system, mental agility, getting into “flow”, and creating your personal life vision.
Monomyth: Joseph Campbell held that numerous myths from disparate times and regions share fundamental structures and stages, which he summarized in The Hero with a Thousand Faces: A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.[3]

Bill Moyers on Joseph Campbell: In Japan for an international conference on religion, Campbell overheard another American delegate, a social philosopher from New York, say to a Shinto priest, “We’ve been now to a good many ceremonies and have seen quite a few of your shrines. But I don’t get your ideology. I don’t get your theology.” The Japanese paused as though in deep thought and then slowly shook his head. “I think we don’t have ideology,” he said. “We don’t have theology. We dance.”

"If elected President in 2016, I am going to directly ask America's billionaires to make substantial contributions to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Imagine if productions of the caliber of Bill Moyers' interviews with mythologist Joseph Campbell were produced not once every 20 years but many times every year. Public broadcasting could become the catalyst to bring high quality educational content to America's schools. The goal would be to create multiple new cable TV channels and employ America's large cadre of underfunded filmmakers to produce educational content, especially oral histories of major artistic, scientific, social and political figures so that we can begin a trans-generational dialogue about how to better the human condition based on the life experience and insights of our most accomplished citizens. As someone who worked in the oral history field at UCLA for several years, I know that the wisdom of our elders in all fields is sometimes lost in America because we are under-investin ...

I became familiar with Joseph Campbell during what I call my 'terrible 20s'. That's when I came across Bill Moyers' PBS series The Power of Myth in 1988. Those were days when I was focused on 'where to look' rather than 'how to see'. Thank you for all your hard work, Mr. Campbell.
According to Carl Jung, the powerful forces of the unconscious appear, not just in clinical material, but also in mythology, religious, artistic and in all other activities humankind uses to experience itself. Jung advocated that the symbol as the psychological mechanism that transforms energy. Joseph Campbell tells us ".it is the artist who brings the images of a mythology to manifestation, and without images (whether mental or visual) there is no mythology." It is the artist within us who communicates our own mythology through our thoughts and feelings as expressed in paintings, sculpture, writing, music and dance. Quoted from Signs of Life by Angeles Arrien
Joseph Campbell was a great American writer and mythologist, who wrote about what he called the hero's journey. From Homer's 'Odyssey' to Luke Skywalker's story in 'Star Wars,' he recognized a theme that applies to our own lives: We are the heroes of our own lives. Jean Houston, a friend and colleag...
"Cultures are created, maintained and transformed by stories we often refer to as myths. Myths are neither true nor false but symbolic stories that give us meaning and teach us how to act." -- Joseph Campbell "We human beings tend to experience ourselves as something seperate from the whole we call 'The Universe'. This is actually an optical illusion of our consciousness. It's like a prison for us. Our task is to free ourselves from this prison by widening our Circle of Compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. This is the only true foundation for our Inner Peace and Security." -- Albert Einstein Indeed, the whole point of meditation or contemplation - whether it appears in the East or in the West, whether Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu - is to free ourselves from the "optical delusion" that we are merely separate egos set apart from each other and from eternal Spirit, and to discover instead, that once released from the prison of individuality, we are o ...
“Are you into Joseph Campbell? ‘Cause this is a meeting with the goddess if I’ve ever seen one.”
"The privilege of a lifetime is to be who you are" - Joseph Campbell
I nearly asphyxiated myself to death in irrepressible giggles upon reading the following by Joseph Campbell. Campbell in a footnote I originally passed over, provides a synopsis of the "experiential psycho-history of Christianity in the West" totally detached in Arctic Promethean pathos of distance and snarling contempt. No gushing liberality of pluralistic oceanic fellow-feeling, carefully worded to avoid offending others in utter delicacy of style, as modern denizens expect and desire in their opiate haze of postmodernist nihilist emptiness. Milky humanistic sentimentality is not here. Campbell just brutally rips apart social illusion and in terse violence states the progressively regressive way Westerners have..."followed"...Jesus Christ. "...(1) a period of literally following the master, Jesus, by renouncing the world as he did (Primitive Christianity); (2) a period of meditating on Christ Crucified as the divinity within the heart, meanwhile living one's life in the world as the servant of this god ...
"The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation.". -Joseph Campbell .
Millennial Minute 'Richard Rohr once said that when we fail to “mythologize our lives, inevitably we will pathologize them.” He is not alone in this conviction. More than sixty years ago the famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung predicted that the collective loss of our ability to see ourselves within a “meaningful narrative” would lead to an epidemic of mental health issues, namely depression, suicide and a startling increase in sociopathic behavior, a phenomenon now overwhelming our mental health and criminal justice systems. While this crisis is frustratingly complex, there is a simple place to start. In The Power of Myth Joseph Campbell advises us to find time to “read--and read and read. And read the right books by the right people. Your mind is brought onto that level, and you have a nice, mild, slow-burning rapture all the time.” The “purifying fire of a great story,” says C.S. Lewis, can teach us more about God and “the mysteries of life that consume and perplex us” than all of the .. ...

Joseph Campbell said that in life you should "follow your bliss." Winston Churchill said "never give up." No matter how inept you are or whatever your circumstance, if you persistently follow your bliss, you can only win in life. Those were two of the most valuable lessons I've learned and I willingly share them.
~Wisdom 101: A Tale of Two Mindsets~ "As Joseph Campbell has pointed out, narrative myths and literature can provide excellent vehicles for deeper wisdom teachings. In modern times, there have been many popular books and films that point to an important understanding, highlighting the dangers of power seeking, fear generated mindsets and dualistic "us vs. them" thinking. In Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" we see how different characters react when tempted by the gravitational pull of the ring. Gandalf, Frodo and other central characters are all caring people, yet, if they touch the ring the desire for "power" rises up and twists their thinking. There's similar themes in the Harry Potter series, Wizard of Oz, Avatar and Spiderman. In Star Wars we see how the "dark" power of the force seduces Anakin Skywalker, transforming him into Darth Vader, and how that darkness is finally undone when he sees the emperor gleefully torturing and killing his son, Luke Skywalker. This tale of two mindsets (one compassionate ...
For Joseph Campbell, the study of myth was the exploration of the possibilities of consciousness.
It’s Mastin and I’m writing you today from Charlotte, North Carolina! I’m with Jenna and her whole family enjoying this special holiday time together. I feel so grateful for this time together because it was only just a few years ago I was couch surfing, single, not living my purpose, and wishing I had a family to be with and call my own. I yearned to make a difference in the world, but wasn’t quite able to do it yet. There were times that I even wanted to give up and end it all. But I didn’t. And I didn’t because I had a map of the world and of being human - that gave me hope. It wasn’t Google Maps or a map you can find on your iPhone, it’s a deep map of the cycles of life embedded within each and every one of us. It’s passed down in stories, religions, and all wisdom traditions. It’s invisible and yet we all know it and feel it. This map is called The Hero’s Journey and it was discovered by the late Joseph Campbell over 50 years ago. Knowing and applying this map eventually would t ...

hey Steven Joseph Campbell question for yah brah? :) so... i got the bodymedia for Christmas :D and signed up and have been wearing it for a day now. I noticed that it didnt really accurately track my treadmill work. Im guessing its cause I hold the top of the treadmill as I do max inclined walking @ 4mph, and dont really swing my arms much. Also, i have pretty large guns (not trying to brag) and the strap really isnt big enough to fit around ...well..ANY part of my upper arm without hurting and cutting off my circulation (srs, i felt like i was doing freaking occlusion training tonight...) so my basic question is, can I wear it around my ankle while im on the treadmill and lifting? Thanks Steven :)
"Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." - Luke 17:21 In "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" Joseph Campbell describes the original Gnostic image of Christ on the cross as Jesus looking straight ahead, eyes penetrating as they peer out unwavering. This is in direct contrast to the images of Christ more often seen in traditional churches, where Jesus is represented as hanging limply, staring down in defeated agony. That image is one of disempowerment, that we, like Jesus himself, are at the mercy of a judging God, that Jesus had to suffer for our sins, and that redemption can only come through proving oneself worthy to God's authority, often through punishment. But the Gnostic image turns this mythology back to the original point - that by saying "yes" to life and all of its pains, dangers, defeats, joys and triumphs we are able to attain Christhood ourselves. Jesus hangs on the cross *willingly*, not because the cross is a burden of suffering but because ...
Wherever you are is a sacred place. ~Joseph Campbell

Thank you, for this -- Joseph Campbell from Elizabeth Austen! "How does the ordinary person come to an experience of the transcendent? For a start, I would say, study poetry. Learn how to read a poem. You need not have the experience to get the message, or at least some indication of the message. It may come gradually. There are many ways, however, of coming to the transcendent experience. "A significant approach is the way of ritual. A ritual allows us to participate in the enactment of a myth. One prepares internally to move with the image and the transcendent comes through." Joseph Campbell, Thou Art That, p.92-93

“Where you stumble and fall, there you will find gold.” ―Joseph Campbell
It's a bit long, but worth a few minutes to read. A lovely piece from the Joseph Campbell Foundation about holiday history and why this time of year has been holy throughout human history. The truth does not attack our beliefs, it makes our vision clearer. Merry Christmas to all! Enjoy! * The Winter Solstice is upon us—the longest known mythological tradition still celebrated today, stretching back to when humans first linked the cycle of the seasons to the heavens (in fact, the word Yule is descended from the Old English geol, apparently derived from the Indo-European base qwelo, meaning "go round"—the source of "cycle" and "wheel"—thus denoting the turn of the year). No other day so clearly illustrates the morphing, merging and melding of mythological motifs across the porous membranes of distinct and disparate cultures. The construction of Stonehenge in England began around 3100 B.C., though in its first phase this circle may have simply served as a ceremonial burial site; it's another 500 years ...
All of humanity's great celebrations meet in the realm of Archetypes: thank you Joseph Campbell, Jung, Caroline Myss, and many many others for calling us back again and again to that intersection where we all--every single one of us--meet! I wrote these Winter Solstice lyrics nearly 20 years ago (to what I learned growing up as a Winter/Christmas hymn) that is actually a much older traditional tune. Here's to the meeting point of the Sun's Return and the Birth into the world of Divine Annointing to walk one's path (Christos energy). I am learning soon how to record and post videos but till then you can likely find the song on youtube. I look forward to sharing songs on FB this year.

“Well, as the preeminent mythologist Joseph Campbell said, deep down inside, we don’t seek the meaning of life, but the experience of being alive. And that’s what the nature of genius is ultimately about. It’s about how we can empower ourselves to bring true meaning to our lives and the lives of others in ways most people would consider impossible. It’s about rising above a life of, as Thoreau said, “quiet desperation” that ends with our songs still in our hearts, and experience the rapture of truly living. It’s about saying yes to our adventures.” Excerpt From: Patrick, Sean. “Nikola Tesla.” Sean Patrick, 2013.

Why December 25? What is the REAL reason for the season? Let's check in with mild mannered Joseph Campbell for the real answers. At Maes Howe (the Orkneys, Scotland), a stone structure dated to 2750 B.C. has a long passageway through which the sun's rays illuminate the back of the chamber at dawn on the Winter Solstice. Another megalithic monument that performs the same function is found at a five thousand year old ceremonial site in Newgrange, Ireland. Cahokia, a complex of pyramids outside St. Louis created by the native "mound-builder" culture almost twelve hundred years ago, includes remains of a "woodhenge"—a circle of posts that line up with the sun on the Winter Solstice—and similar older, more permanent ritual centers are found in the American southwest, where Pueblo tribes still observe rites marking the Solstice. Across the Pacific, in Japan, the central Shinto myth portrays the Sun Goddess Amaterasu emerging from her cave on the Winter Solstice. And of course, throughout the Christian wor . ...
Love of Reading Revisited !!! In response to Carolyn's wonderful list of the top ten book's she has read to this point, and her invitation to do likewise... :-) Have had quite a bit more time, being quite a bit older :-)...I began to read at 4yrs old (I was a very solitary child) and devoured Zane Grey pulp magazine Western short stories, and scify pulp magazines...yup, they really existed !!! Through high school, my goal was to read every biography/autobiography the school libraries held. Will and Ariel Durant's "History of the United States", and "History of the World" were also awesome !!! High school also began my ongoing appreciation of Edgar Allen Poe. Reading all of Louis L'Amour sent me on actual trips to Arizona, to find those interesting places !

A brilliant man named joseph campbell wrote a book called THE POWER OF MYTH, all societies have their myths, hindu myths, islamic myths, mormon myths, jewish myths, greek myths, roman myths which used the greek myths, egyptian myths, why do we find it so easy to call everyone else's beliefs MYTHS while we tend to insist that everything we believe is the absolute truth, said and done? a myth is a myth is a myth, they hold incalculable value to the belief system they come from and are only remotely important to any one else's belief system, treasure you own myths and leave the rest alone.
As Joseph Campbell tells us, shamanism is the earliest example of “the serious use of myth hermetically, as m-arga, as a way to psychological metamorphosis.” We might use the Mayan ritual concept of “opening the portal” to describe these techniques, for they are meant progressively to alter the human consciousness and bring it closer and closer to its form-giving source. This hermetic use of myth cannot be underestimated. Mythic symbols constitute one of the great keys unlocking the preconscious reservoir of the mind. “The reservoir is in the mind of mankind, but by no means all mankind draws from it,” Oliver La Farge tells us. “Where the ideas are expressed in symbols, they serve one believer as doorways into the inner courts of understanding, another rather as doors at which thinking stops in favor of literal acceptance.” The symbols of traditional lore, themselves expressive of the preconscious creations of a culture distilled over generations by the ancestors, are deeply fascinating an ...
On this solstice night to day: Become your own living work of art and change the world, from the inside out, through inspiration. As Joseph Campbell put it, “The world without spirit is a wasteland. People have the notion of saving the world by shifting things around, changing the rules, and who’s on top, and so forth. No, no! Any world is a valid world if it’s alive. The thing to do is to bring life to it, and the only way to do that is to find in your own case where the life is and become alive yourself.”
Proclaim a redeeming form of knowledge I say. Page 350 of Joseph Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces . . . The Work of the incarnation is to refute by his presence the pretensions of the tyrant ogre. The latter has occluded the source of grace with the shadow of his limited personality; the incarnation, utterly free of such ego-consciousness, is a direct manifestation of the law. On a grandiose scale he enacts the hero-life-performs the hero-deeds, slays the monster-but it is all with the freedom of a work done only to make evident to the eye what might have been accomplished equally well with a mere thought. . .

Bit of Advice: If you ever tell any type of skeptic of your spiritual quests (particularly if you are interacting with beings) once they start giving you crap say this: Right, because you've proved Carl Jung wrong and the Collective Unconscious isn't real and you've proved Joseph Campbell wrong that the human consciousness isn't mythic in nature. Therefore it is scientifically impossible to use altered states of consciousness to interact with Jungian archetypes. So when exactly are you being awarded the Nobel Prize?

So, my Western Civ professor brought up and proved an interesting fact that I have been thinking about ever since I took that class - Myth = Religion. The reason that he concluded this is because according to Joseph Campbell, there are four functions of myth: Mystical, cosmological, sociological and psychological. Well, religion also does these 4 things. We have no actual proof or rational explanations for religion at all (no matter what faith you are). One of the other interesting things that we learned about was that in Ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, there were no monotheistic (having ONE god) views. They all worshipped a variety of deities and monotheism was looked at as "strange". I just found this really interesting, and I am starting to question my own faith, actually.

"Myth is the revelation of a plenum of silence within and around every atom of existence. Myth is a directing of the mind and heart, by means of profoundly informed figurations, to that ultimate mystery which fills and surrounds all existences. Even in the most comical and apparently frivolous of its moments, mythology is directing the mind to this unmanifest which is just beyond the eye." Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces
My (almost) two weeks in Israel have certainly been interesting. This last week in the mystical city of Safed has been healing, inspiring, and transforming. I have learned more about Judaism in one week of class than I have in my entire life. I am definitely not drinking the cool aid yet, but I now see the depths of wisdom in ancient Jewish teachings (Kabbalah in particular). The Torah and other sacred texts have many shades of meaning and interpretations. I will likely never take things literally, but it is nice to know that I don't have to in order to connect and find meaning in my Judaism!! Really, they are not much different than what I have learned class with Jon Berry... just a different language. Instead of Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, and James Hillman, it is the Zohar and Tanya.
“Half the people in the world think that the metaphors of their religious traditions, for example, are facts. And the other half contends that they are not facts at all. As a result we have people who consider themselves believers because they accept metaphors as facts, and we have others who classify themselves as atheists because they think religious metaphors are lies. Who really gets the message? ” -Joseph Campbell Obviously the reason "Gnostic" (meaning know thyself) principles (which were taught by jesus) were omitted or censored from modern day Christianity is because it did not serve the interests of the church. The church/government hierarchy operates on a foundation of fear and control. What a lot of people dont know is that Jesus was against the church. He taught that God was within, the human body the temple. "ye are all Gods". Jesus' teachings were twisted to serve those in power. How could the priests allow the masses to know that the individual is the only one capable of coming in conta ...
South Dakota State University announced that its fraternities will be inducting their pledges at Mt. Rushmore. Size mallogists state their current charts are inaccurate. The higher priced women’s clothing reflects smaller sizes than less expensive clothing of the same dimensions. A woman might be able to wear a size 6 in an expensive brand when it would be a 10 in the cheapest brand. A revised version of the trickedher scale will be published soon. Joseph Campbell in his book, The Power of Myth, highlights the similarities between religions and the importance of the mores each religion (or lore for tribes) imparts on its tribe or country to allow its members to live in a semblance of harmony. As we watch the greater separation of church and state, we are seeing the adverse results.

Shamans, Saints, and Sages: What is a Spiritual Hero, and What Does it Take to Become One?"Only if we know that the thing which truly matters is the infinite can we avoid fixing our interests upon futilities and upon all kindsof goals which are not of real importance."

These are humankind’s heroes, the healers, helpers, saints, and sages who exemplify our untapped potential. Ordinary mortals have wondered and puzzled about them, venerated or even worshiped them, and often felt that they must be more than merely human, even when the heroes themselves made no such claims.   “Are you a God?” they asked the Buddha. “No.” he replied. “Are you an angel, then?” “No.” “Then what are you?” Replied the Buddha, “I am awake.”   The mythologist Joseph Campbell collected diverse accounts (legends, myths, biographi ...

Just playing with some numbers tonight... ; ) Found this blog in my search... To my readers: I have to admit that when I had this series of dreams, I had no clue where it was going to lead me, though I knew that the number 216 was one that Joe had talked about for a long time in his own writings. Dee From Joe Mason: Those who have read our Code of the Ancients articles know that 216 is a major Gematrian number in "The Code" system. In terms of the Gematrian Wheel, it is the sixth point (6 x 36). It is six to the third power, or 6 x 6 x 6. Twice 216, 432, is a time cycle number, according to mythologist, Joseph Campbell. The number 432 has the Alpha/Word Gematrian meaning, "Consecration." James Furia uses 432 tuning, based on "The Code." One of the "A" notes in the system is 216 cps. The Grid Latitude of Stonehenge is encoded by the number 216 times 100, based on the 60 original Sarsen Circle stones multiplied by the 360-degree circle.
