The reason why humans have conjured up or been inspired by so many different gods and deities in our history is this: Consciousness is infinite in its expressions. It can be whatever it “wishes” to be.
Though it does not really have a will in the same way we think of humans having a will.
The dynamic aspect of consciousness is pure creativity and experience. It never tires of manifesting new species of animals, plants, minerals and atoms even. It can do whatever the *bleep* it wants. Thats why we have had so many different gods and goddesses and other supernatural beings in our history. Whether its Amen-Ra, Zeus, Aphrodite, Isis, Odin, Thor, Sirens, Anubis, Marduk, Elohim, The Peacock Angel.
It doesn’t really matter. It can be all and it is all.
You are included in this manifestation of consciousness, and your uniqueness is the very magnificence of it.
Here below are some quotes by Joseph Campbell, the master of myth!
Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.
All cultures … have grown out of myths. They are founded on myths. What these myths have given has been inspiration for aspiration. The economic interpretation of history is for the birds. Economics is itself a function of aspiration. It’s what people aspire to that creates the field in which economics works.
The image of the cosmos must change with the development of the mind and knowledge; otherwise, the mythic statement is lost, and man becomes dissociated from the very basis of his own religious experience. Doubt comes in, and so forth.You must remember: all of the great traditions, and little traditions, in their own time were scientifically correct. That is to say, they were correct in terms of the scientific image of that age.
My name is just a name, I am not my name, I am the nameless because the Dao that can be named is not the eternal Dao.
