A "New You"? A New Language? The Language of Myth

Above is a new promotional video I've just made entitled "A New You? A New Language? The Language of Myth."

So many of us want to find a path towards "A Whole New You."

The world's ancient myths actually point us towards something even better: not a "New You" but rather the "Authentic You" -- our own deeper Self, from whom we so often become alienated but who is in fact always available.

And I am convinced that the more we can reconnect with and listen to Self, the more we will find ourselves being guided towards who and what we really and deeply love in this life -- because Self knows.

Happy New Year! Time is Rhythm


Happy New Year!

Time is Rhythm.

Seconds are measured in oscillations of quartz and cesium. Years are made up of seconds. The circling of the spheres measures out the Ages. Grateful for good times with good friends in 2021 and looking forward to new adventures in 2022! Brothers of the Serpent along with Brandon Powell (djembe, standing).

Vassilissa the Beautiful: A Russian Folk-Tale for Us Today


Here is a new video I've just made entitled "Vassilissa the Beautiful: A Russian Folk-Tale for Us Today."

Growing up, I loved the Russian Folk-Tales (or Fairy Tales, as my book of Russian Folk-Tales called them).

Today, I would like to read the story of Vassilissa (sometimes spelled Vasilisa or Vasilissa) and add some commentary on the ancient wisdom preserved in this tale.

You can find an older version of this same story beginning on page 109 of this collection of Russian Folk-Tales published in 1915 and reprinted in 1916.

Actual touch with the god who stands at your elbow

 


When Alvin Boyd Kuhn speaks of "christianity" he means "literalistic misinterpretation of ancient scripture."

Here, he reminds us that the birth of the divine child is an esoteric dramatization of the true Self to whom we all have access, but from whom we so easily become estranged and alienated.



The ancient myths and sacred stories the world over are dramatizing for us the same grand theme which runs through them all like a golden thread: know thy Self.

Alvin Boyd Kuhn declares: "The real heresy and apostasy is to miss deity where it is to be had -- in the blind effort to seek it where it is not available" (Lost Light, 46).
