Welcome to the JCF Forums, Aseems!

Spinoza believed that soul and body were inseparable, that "god" is not separate from creation and that everything in the universe is perfect and divine.

This resonates with me.

Seems to me that Campbell's work points favorably in that direction.

Cheers,
Clemsy

Thank you Clemsy for your warm welcome

You seem to hold a very Hindu perspective ...
Everything is Divinity
As opposed to
Everything is Divinity's

And for the record, I mostly agree with Clemsy and Spinoza...
Spinoza believed that soul and body were inseparable, that "god" is not separate from creation and that everything in the universe is perfect and divine.

This resonates with me.

Seems to me that Campbell's work points favorably in that direction.
but with one caveat. The human mind is still a "work in progress" which needs to be cultivated. The potential is there...somewhere.

Unfortunately, from my point of view, the sheppards of the Earth are more interested in eating their own flock than expanding it.
