“Heaven and Hell are within us, all of the gods are within us. All the gods, all the heavens, all the worlds are within us. That is what myth is. Myth is a manifestation in symbolic images, in metaphorical images of the energies of the body organs in conflict with each other. This organ wants this, that organ wants that. The brain is one of the organs.”
” Dream is a personal experience of that deep, dark ground that is the support of our consciousness lives, and the myth is the society’s dream. The myth is the public dream and the dream is the private myth. If your private myth, your dream, happens to coincide with that of a society, you are in good accord with your group. If it isn’t you have an adventure in the dark forest ahead of you.”
Each one of us lives and creates our personal myth- a story we tell ourselves about who we are and what we are doing in here. This story is like a collection, a kaleidoscope of our memories- the bits we pull out, pieces we stick together, a creation of our Inner Genius. Deep inside our heads, inside our subconscious minds and deeper still, in the unconscious, we hide our most precious gems. They visit us in our dreams and visions telling us stories about ourselves. We have a choice to share these stories with the rest of the world. This is a process of our own self’-creation.
Each one of us fights a battle within- a battle with our own bodies, trying to force ourselves to be what we want ourselves to be. This conflict is the source of our suffering and also a source of our inspiration.
Whatever we do in our everyday lives, our daily struggles and daily pleasures they all create our memories. Most of these memories are pushed back to the subconscious mind where they lay dormant until the time is right for them resurface. When they resurface they bring us a new story. This is what I call the Dreamweaver. The name itself came to me in a vision and there’s a story behind it as well. Only the time to tell that story has not arrived yet…
The reason I’ve decided to talk about the Dreamweaver now rather than later is mostly because I have realised that it is the crucial element of my magical practice.
In my recent blogs here and there I began to share the elements of my awakening story with you. I’ve realised now that I was actually creating a story rather than sharing it. Personal experience can not be shared or explained but it can be turned into a work of art and that’s precisely what I am doing in here- writing a story about myself and people surrounding me during the last year of my life. Hopefully my story will inspire you.
