An Exploration of Ancient Myths and the meaning they hold in the modern world. These Ancient Mythologies that may seem dusty and worn out, can become new and offer us keys to unlocking the hidden doors of our own unique belief systems of today. It is so wonderful to find long lost ideas, that agree with our existing world view. Visiting the epic literature of ancient people and beings, which seem peculiar and exotic; once encountered, begin to inform our personal hero’s journey with an infusion of ideas that seem strange and new. Experiencing myths that contain; Giants and Genies – Fairies and Elves, is the stuff of children’s bedtime stories. The great archetypes which thrilled us as children, emerge throughout the ancient historic record. It is even more wonderful to experience beliefs considered to be fictions, which turn out to be fact. Because as the years wear on, and we become wiser, it is so often repeated; “that fact is indeed stranger than fiction”. Enjoy these fantastic excerpts that have been so painstakingly researched for your pleasure. Collected in one place, are these reliable accounts of often misquoted and misunderstood segments of great epic literature. Especially those originating from ancient sacred texts, sometimes viewed as “too religious” for the average reader to explore. Join the adventure and rip down the veil of taboos, that have previously prevented the average person from enjoying these ancient sacred texts. These rare and lengthy books of knowledge, might otherwise be insurmountable for the casual reader. Which is exactly why this collection is arranged with short quotations and approachable segments. Later, some serious scholars, may want to follow these brief quotations back to the original epic literature, from which they were derived. The Myths emerging from; pre-Colombian Maya, Ancient Mesopotamia, the Indus Mountains and ancient Greek Philosophers, are joined immutably, by the common evolution of our human geography. The archetypes transmitted by them are tremendously moving. True epics have the power to transport us outside of time. Vehicles to unanticipated destinations, from which we can return to the comfort of our own lives unharmed. And as we arrive home, we realize, along with us we have carried a message or an idea, that helps us feel stronger in our own personal beliefs. The epic Myths contained within the theologies of the Judeo/Christian/Mohammedan, Hindu and Buddhist views, even those transmitted by oral literature of remote indigenous tribes; invite us to experience ourselves as never before. A true epic causes us to experience something bigger than ourselves...and that something, is Myth!
