From the Chair: A New Mythology?
If you will think of ourselves as coming out of the earth, rather than having been thrown in here from somewhere else, you see that we are the Earth, we are the consciousness of the earth. These are the eyes of the earth. And this is the voice of the earth. When you see the earth from the moon, you don’t see any divisions there of nations or states. This might be the symbol, really, for the new mythology to come.
– Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
Buddha, Moses and Jesus did not go to workshops or seminars or even churches. They went directly to nature: sat under the Bodhi tree or on top of a mountain or in a cave. We’ve been living off the residual remains of their inspiration for thousands of years, but this has about run out. It is time to return to the source of this inspiration – the earth itself.
