The Perennial Philosophy

During this period where the most violent mammals ever to walk upon the planet earth appear to be entering a downward spiral of chaos and destruction, we have been turning to the writings of Karen Armstrong. Consider the following passage from her lucid study, A Short History of Myth:




Let us pray to the Gods, all the Gods, that we learn right action in this world of the living, through an embrace of all that which is richer, stronger and more enduring than our fleeting human existence. Let us create new myths from the immanence of our own disappearance; and let this new mythology resound with compassion at its heart.
