This issue's wisdom reading is based upon a quote by the great
mythologist, Joseph Campbell:
"A myth is a public dream, and a
dream is a private myth." The deck used is the PoMo Tarot
by the late Brian Williams.
After we do the reading, we'll revisit this statement with our new
1) What is a dream?
10 of T.V.s
A dream is a multi-layered time-out from ego identity, an experience
of being both the message and the medium, and a performance in which
one is simultaneously writer, director, performer, and audience. It's
an infomercial of the Self.
2) What is myth?
Myth is the mother of all art, a comfortable and familiar icon which
caries the fragrance of an ideal past through all time.
We can now play with Joseph Campbell's quote a bit. One possibility,
based on our cards, is:
"A familiar icon carried through
all time is a collective experience of being both the message and the
medium; a multi-layered time-out from ego identity is a personal whiff
of the eternal ideal."
See what you
come up with!
