This is your invitation to begin raising to conscious awareness the various stories and interpretive lenses you have been using to make sense of your life, your purpose, and the nature of the world. Here you will find materials written by a wide variety of authors—from psychologists and psychotherapists, to poets, philosophers, comparative mythologists, and scholars of religion—that will help guide you through the process of bringing to light the fixed myths which have been structuring your consciousness.
Some of these myths you may be aware of, some not. This will be a process of self-discovery, then—a journey into the labyrinth of your own personal development, where you can review the twists and turns you have taken and learn to plot a new course as needed.
Helpful prompts, exercises, and posts will try to aid you in navigating your psycho-spiritual roots:
Why are you here and where are you going?
What role(s) you do play in the grand scheme of things?
What's meaningful and why? What is "good" and what is "God"?
Here the unexamined working answers you've been using to get yourself out of bed each morning become explicit. Are they what you thought? Are they what you want?
Discover the myth you have been living, for only then can you change it.
And to change your myth is to change your life...
"I did not know that I was living a myth, and even if I had known it, I would not have known what sort of myth was ordering my life without my knowledge. So, in the most natural way, I took it upon myself to get to know “my” myth, and I regarded this as the task of tasks..." - Carl Jung
Riting Myth, Mythic Writing

A PERSONALMYTHOLOGY.ORG EXCLUSIVE
This series of blog posts is an invitation to an adventure: a quest inward, to your depths,
in search of new images and symbols for your own personal sense of the sacred.
This is your rite of passage, a sloughing off of old, outworn ideas and paradigms
as you seek initiation into deeper Mysteries.
The goal is nothing less than a total transformation of your relationship to religion,
a revolution in the life of the spirit.
