≡≡≡≡≡ METAPHORS & MEANINGS≡≡≡≡≡
☬"A ritual is the enactment of a myth. By participating in a ritual, you are participating in a myth." ~Joseph Campbell

☬"It is best to rise from life as from a banquet, neither thirsty nor drunken." Aristotle

☬"You have discovered ritual. You paid tribute to the god, and the rest of the weekend was yours. You have taken the Dionysian element in it's crudest, roughest, least intelligent form and discovered the stuff of miracle, it's transformation into ecstasy and joy." ~Robert Johnson

☬"Through the sacrifice, I redeemed the primordial powers and added them to my soul. Since they became part of a living pattern, they're no longer dormant, but awake and active and irradiate my soul with their divine working. Through this it receives a divine attribute. Hence the eating of the sacrificial flesh aided it's healing." ~Carl Jung

☬"After the animal has been killed, the hunter then has to fulfill certain rites in a kind of “participation mystique,” a mystic participation with the animals whose death he has brought about, and whose meat is to become his life. So the killing is not simply slaughter, at any rate, it’s a ritual act. It’s a recognition of your dependency and of the voluntary giving of this food to you by the animal who has given it. It’s a beautiful thing, and it turns life into a mythological experience" ~Joseph Campbell

☬God is the eccentric host who...goes out into the skid rows and soup kitchens and charity wards and brings home a freak show. The man with no legs who sells shoelaces at the corner. The old woman in the moth-eaten fur coat who makes her daily rounds of the garbage cans. The old wino with his pint in a brown paper bag. The pusher, the whore, the village idiot who stands at the blinker light waving his hand as the cars go by. They are seated at the damask-laid table in the great hall. The candles are all lit and the champagne glasses filled. At a sign from the host, the musicians in their gallery strike up "Amazing Grace.” ~Frederick Buechner

☬"Liberate, Why Not?" ~Diego Piñón
