JEDVAITA

The New Mythology

People forget facts, but they remember stories.

Awakening-related communications like what you’re reading right now can be heavily dependent on metaphor and allegory and parable and all manner of indirect modes of description. If there was ever a time to speak directly, call a spade a spade and not hide behind clever imagery and flowery language, the search for truth would be it, but we don’t have that option; talking around the subject is the best we can do. Happily, some of the most useful metaphors, allegories and parables have been made into the most satisfying movies — Vanilla Sky, Apocalypse Now, Joe vs the Volcano, 1984, etc — but there aren’t a lot to choose from and there’s not a lot of overlap or redundancy, so when they appear, it’s important that we recognize their value and make the fullest use of them.

Both are indifferent to the opinions of the world."
