Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others.
Unfold your own myth, without complicated explanation,
so everyone will understand the passage, ‘We have opened you.’
A PERSONAL MYTHOLOGY
“The Chronicle of the Fireheart” is a way to explore my inner world in order to balance my outer one. This is a comprehensive project that will use all of the journaling that I have done (and will be doing) for the purpose of constructing an illuminated manuscript for myself. In essence, it will be a personal prayer book, complete with personal poetry, art and poetic wisdom from history that has comforted and guided me, original visual interpretations of the archetypes of my personal unconscious, as well as the archetypes from the stories that influenced my culture and my youth.
Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
~ C.G. Jung
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
~Liber Novus (The Red Book) C.G. Jung
~Astrology and the Tarot, A.G. Thierens
‘I think what we are looking for is a way of experiencing the world that will open us to the transcendent that informs it, and at the same time forms ourselves within it. That is what people want. That is what the soul asks for…To have some kind of instruction that will enable us to experience the divine presence.’
And so the universal may elucidate the particular
and throw light down in the world of phenomena,
darkly veiled by the maya of matter.
