Recently, at a meditation retreat, it was pointed out that as we moved closer to the unconscious mind, we moved closer to the universal. The surface distinctions of culture and personality are in the conscious mind. We are all the same at the unconscious level where myths are from. Archetypes and myths are the same all over the globe, thus, they point the way to their source where we can all return to find the peace that passes understanding. As the Tau Te Ching describes: " When we realize where we come from, we naturally become tolerant, disinterested, amused, kindhearted as a grandmother, dignifid as a king."
