Hi Dave and Cindy,

It appears to be from Angelus Sileslius. In Pathways to Bliss (pg. 23) Campbell says:
...There is a wonderful line from the German mystic Angelus Silesius: "Of what use, Gabriel, your message to Marie / Unless you can now bring the same message to me?"...

Hi Ellis,

The interview "Elders and Guides" is included in the book Leaning on the Moment: Interviews from PARABOLA (published in 1986). If this book is not available at your library perhaps another library can lend it to them.

Re: Mythos II episode 2

And a bit further on mister Campbell talks about 'Cassiopa' (I think it is) who represents the esoteric in buddhism. I couldn't find anything that relates to that name, so I think I got the spelling of that name wrong also,... Freerk, I think it's Kasyapa (also Mahakasyapa or Mahakashyapa). He was ...

Ron the homepage had it listed in " Myths to Live By ". As to what page or topic in the book this might be a David Kudler question if no one else knows.
Hi James,

The quote is in Chapter I "The Impact of Science on Myth" (Page 11 - Paperback/1972).
