“With the necessary demands of life…family, job, financial obligations and other of the time and energy sapping routines of life; it can seem difficult to carve out even a few minutes for self-care, self renewing practices and the time to ponder the mysteries of life. So we adopt cultural/religious legends and myths as literal truth. We lay all of our cares and assign our transgressions to Jesus for ‘salvation’, Moses another savior archetype led his people the chosen ones out of bondage, Muhammad received instructions from the archangel Gabriel and saved his people. All of those archetypes serve to lead people away from themselves…away from self-knowledge and understanding. I find it highly ironic that Christians for example ignore the instruction of Jesus that “the temple is within”. The heart space, the temple within.”
