the archetypal magic of our stories & myths

1-DSC04712

The more alert we become to the blessing
that flows into us through everything we touch,
the more our own touch will bring blessing.
…..David Steindl-Rast

we share our lives together….this much we know, but we forget how enmeshed in each other’s stories….your story is mine and mine is yours, and therefore, we hold each other’s pain and beauty……and from there, we can grace each other with new possibility….

This is what fools people: a man is always a teller of tales, he lives surrounded by his stories and the stories of others, he sees everything that happens to him through them; and he tries to live his own life as if he were telling a story…..Jean-Paul Sartre

telling tall tales….

Don’t be satisfied with stories,

how things have gone with others.

Unfold your own myth.

…..Rumi

  1. I wonder what the word that distinguishes your story from mine. And then I know the truth, my story would be less were it not meshed with yours. ❤
