Joseph Campbell

"I would say that all our sciences are the material that has to be mythologized. A mythology gives spiritual import - what one might call rather the psychological, inward import, of the world of nature round about us, as understood today.There's no real conflict between science & religion ... What is in conflict is the science of 2000 BC ... and the science of the 20th century AD."

POWER by Jim Morrison

I can make the earth stop in
its tracks. I made the
blue cars go away.
I can make myself invisible or small.
I can become gigantic & reach the
farthest things. I can change
the course of nature.
I can place myself anywhere in
space or time.
I can summon the dead.
I can perceive events on other worlds,
in my deepest inner mind,
& in the minds of others.
I can
I am

I wonder…

I wonder if people would take me seriously if I had collegiate acronyms after my name.


Sometimes when I’m sitting outside in my wheelchair, squirrels and birds come to rest right next to me. I thought, at times, that I had some kind of weird spiritual connection to these animals. What was really going on was that because I sat so quietly and motionless I became invisible to them. I was camouflaged among my patio furniture and other objects around me. It is fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Is this what happens to me when I’m with other people?
