Hello, I have watched Bob Ross for years. I should say since I was thirteen years old. I am thirty-one years old now. Bob Ross seemed to have gained a lot of spiritual substance from what inspired him being Alaska. He was greatly influenced by nature. He was very sensitive regarding this matter beca...

Dear Subbudh, I think your post is very interesting.I would like to first say that I do not think that the Star Wars trilogy was moral.I think that your analysis of the climax of the Return of the Jedi was on target.I see that film trilogy as being filled with moral relativism.In other words,the wor...

Dear All, Joseph Campbell said that we do not a mythology.He said that we live a good life therefore we do not need it.He prefered that it should grab our attention in a way that we prefer and someone else should not ram it down our throats. Well,I do not think that we need mythology at all.It is no...

Dear Clemsy, I hope this fellow that you are working with gets better.It seems that you are a compassioate person. I remember that Joseph Campbell told a story about the ninth incarnation of the Buddah.I do not know,but it might be good for this thread.I cannot tell the story as well as Joseph Campb...

May ...

Dear Zen Fool, Yep,I think society is primarilly made up of a bunch of nuts and squirrels that is why mythology is so prevalent.I have always seen the earth as being a mental institution floating in space. I still see the value of studying myths,but I think in a more ideal world they would not exist...

Dear Windhorse, I agree with you that if a person follows their bliss they will be a hero.I would say that Micheal Jordan is a hero that way,but he would be a demi god in the pantheon of gods.In otherwords,a minor hero.I still think that there are more important people that we could be focuousing on...

Dear All,

My friend is dead.There were no myths to pull him out of his abyss.The light did not come at the darkest moment.His death was a profound loss.He was a great pianist.
