Reply To: Finding My Own True Myth

Toby Johnson

Hi Stephen, thanks for the welcome. I’ll share more about what I think the important consequences and lessons are from Joseph Campbell’s thought.

I have, indeed, had a wonderful life, filled with so many curious coincidences/ synchronicities. Sometimes, I wonder if it’s all a dream. To wit, my grand experience of having for my “wise old man” on my spiritual/archetypal journey, Joseph Campbell himself.

That reference to “dream” reminds me both of the inevitable explanation of consciousness as a solipsism, but also of Joe’s speaking of the Bodhisattva’s consciousness as “the long world-dream of the All-Regarding, whose essence is the essence of Emptiness.”
