In this episode of The TruthSeekah Podcast TruthSeekah is joined by Ayn Cates Sullivan as they discuss the healing power of myth and allegory. Many of the worlds Holy books are filled with stories heroes and heroines who rise up to greatness as a noble warrior to fight against the oppressors of their day. These stories seem to be fashioned in a similar way and when fully understood unlock the power to understand our own inner journey and spiritual liberation. Joseph Campbell referred to this system and cycle as “The Heros Journey”. This is the journey that we are all on during our course here on Earth and as we read the ancient tales and lore we find parables hidden deep within the layers of our own lives, each unique unto us but so familiar at the same time. The Bible, Bhagavad Gita and many other Holy books all contain layer upon layers of revelation within each line of text. Ayn Cates Sullivan has written her own stories inspired by Celtic Mythology and Irish tradition. Her work unlocks keys of mystery within the human experience and hidden deep within the human psyche. As characters are introduced they seem all too familiar and carry a truth about the reader, a deep inner knowing.
