Mythologies are in fact the public dreams
that move and shape societies,
one’s own dreams are the little myths
of the private gods, antigods, and guardian powers
that are moving and shaping oneself:
revelations of the actual fears, desires, aims and values
by which one’s life is subliminally ordered.

'All life,' said the Buddha, 'is sorrowful';
and so, indeed, it is.
Life consuming life:
that is the essence of its being,
which is forever a becoming.
'The world,' said the Buddha, 'is an ever-burning fire.'
And so it is.
And that is what one has to affirm,
with a yea! a dance!
a knowing, solemn, stately dance
of the mystic bliss beyond pain
that is at the heart of every mythic rite.

Shakespeare said that art is a mirror held up to nature.
And that's what it is.
The nature is your nature,
and all of these wonderful poetic images of mythology
are referring to something in you.
When your mind is simply trapped by the image out there
so that you never make the reference to yourself,
you have misread the image.
