Joseph Campbell

‎"[T]he universal doctrine teaches that all the visible structures of the world ... are the effects of a ubiquitous power out of which they rise, which supports & fills them during their manifestation, & back into which they must ultimately... dissolve. This is the power known to science as energy, to the Melanesians as mana, to the Sioux Indians as wakonda, the Hindus as Shakti, and the Christians as the power of God."
-Joseph Campbell

  1. One of the things that I love about Campbells writing and his theories are of the profound connectivity and how we are all carrying out, even in the smallest actions of our daily lives, the mysteries and mythologies of ancient powers and archetypes that go back to the dawn of human consciousness.
