Literature of the Spirit: "It's the song that my heart sings."
The Power of Myth in my life: "I am a servant. To family, to extended family, to the children I work with at school (my workplace), to church, . . . I serve. As in the story of Cinderella, the main character "worked" but her spirit carried her elsewhere. Myth assists one to be in two places at one time . . . where we are . . . and where the "literature of our spirit" takes us. "The power of myth in life" . . . takes us (spiritually) out of routine . . . lifts us from painful places . . . teaches . . . entertains . . . helps us endure . . . . Cinderella was portrayed as being a happy person. She was happy, not because of her physical circumstances, but rather because of her "heart/spirit/mind song."
Life is hard. Myths transcend us. (And I think God smiles, as He listens to our "stories" . . . our human attempt to muddle through life . . . in most creative ways!)
