Myth

Receiving and assimilating
Myth
is an experience of
the finite meeting the infinite.

Myth
embodies the infinite,
undefined, unspeakable,
in the guise of the finite,
defined and spoken.

The reality
in Myth
cannot be captured
and pinned down
and interpreted
in a single fixed meaning,
instead
rich with endless interpretations.

Yet,
it remains
a singly glimpsed reality,
a window
to the Great Ultimate.

In receiving and assimilating
Myth
we are in touch
with both the defined and undefined,
the finite and the infinite.

The value of Myth
is not
its historical truthfulness,
but
how it sets before us
the intersection of
the finite and the infinite.

Myth
embodies multiple Truths,
not only about someone else,
but also about me,
revealing deep Truth
about my True Self.

Through Myth,
I can enlarge myself,
live in the unbounded
as well as my boundedness.

Myth
tells us
that the infinite comes first
and is expressed
in the finite,
contrary to our thinking
that the finite is primary.

Meaning
comes first,
Expression
afterwards.

In Myth,
Spiritual significance
is the primary reality,
historical events,
if any,
secondary,
a mere shadow
of the Truth.

The question
is not,
Did that event really happen?
but
Is that Meaning Eternally True?

The temporal
is an incarnation of
the Eternal.

The Word
was made flesh,
not
the flesh was made Word.

We
are the Word
in expression,
primarily Meaning,
only secondarily
as thing or event
in time.

Myth
helps me realize
I am situated
in the Infinite,
simply expressed
in the finite.
