Life is infinitely more marvelous than our business and work, money and illness,
family and bosses would make it seem. It is precisely the function of myth to thrust
us out of the quotidian into the miraculous. One lives life more deeply, with greater
peace and joy, when one lives with the enigmas that permeate it….
...myths are reminders from spaceless eternity of the stuff of which our bodies,
minds, souls, spirits are made. They wake us up, and help us live with, and within,
the mystery that is the matrix of our being.
