There’s an old saying, “The difference between mythology and history is that mythology is true.” Myths are the stories of fact that’ve been told in symbols, they have no language of facts. The language of facts is a limited, often two dimensional language. Mythological stories are from dimensions beyond what “facts” can describe. Take a famous story in the Bible, the story of Adam and Eve. It’s actually the story of the ‘Atom’ (matter in now) and the ‘Eve’ntual’ (matter of future-now). There’s the part where Adam’s rib creates Eve. The deeper myth is that the rib used was the seventh rib — the rib that connects the heart center to the outer world. The heart center — the center of reflective engagement — is the center of relationship.
This is where you manifest your partnership with the attributes you require to unfold your destiny…from your heart.
Mythology presents a shorthand version of the symbology conversing between your brain and the universal mind…pictures worth a thousand words. The conscious ‘brain-mind’ connection has been programmed over thousands of years to work in the language of words, but it didn’t always. Words are open to interpretation, and the interpretations are also interpreted…false interpretations appear as true…always religion’s dilemmas. Beyond this, there are subconscious and superconscious views with far greater clarity. The sub and superconscious never work in words…they work exclusively in symbols and converse in symbolic language. As masters go deep into meditations of ‘dhyana’, they receive these information symbols. When written down, they’re open to interpretation, but in the beginning they were accurately taught through oral traditions…no room for interpretations.
Our prayer is that you allow the symbology of your life to come into your life without the need to interpret it…without the two dimensions of logic; that you allow this experience to remain in its magical dimensions without requiring it to identify itself with facts. Experience the harmony through which these symbols relate to the symbols of others…this is the root and the route of real peace.
