James Burden commented on Bonnie Bright's blog post Living the Symbolic Life

  • Welcome James, I'm looking forward to checking out your mythic blog!


  • Welcome James,

    The "End-Times" has always fascinated me both in the way the days are determined and in the way we humans respond. I'll be heading to your website and reading your blogs with great interest.


  • Hi James. Welcome to the Alliance! I am so happy to have you in the community. Your blog posts are so rich and I'm thrilled you wasted no time in jumping in with both feet. I look forward to dialoguing with you. I'll be "tweeting" your posts right away--with your permission. All the best!

Happy Groundhawg's Day

Oh, hawg who dwelt in the ground.

Be not afraid of thyn Shadow.

That mystery, however frightful, is only the undiscovered side of yourself.

Come out of yourn cave, my friend.

A secret I shall share with you: buried in that Shadow, just underneath the tar, lays a bounty of gold.

Be not afraid nor overly critical.

For what you would shrink from and scold is none other than your divine hidden soul.

His impulse to discovery lead him to territories of taboo that where and have been too extreme for a great deal of our mainstream psychologists. He was interested in Tarot, astrology, physics, magic, the occult, UFOs,…

The Great Mystery

Mythic Meditations


What is Mythology? We are in no short supply of definitions and yet as of today there is no ‘Grand Unified Theory of Mythology’. It is an abstraction at its very best. To understand this mystery we draw from the fields of history, psychology, literature, religion, spirituality, philosophy, film, anthropology, science fact as well as science fiction. From Genesis to Star Wars we can follow its…

In the Beginning…there was the End

Mythic Meditations


There are people who say that the Mayan calendar is predicting the end of the world on Dec 21st 2012.
