"Hi Kenneth, as I was reading your profile, this statement stuck out:

To begin with, I'm not sure…"

"Hi Christian, thanks for the great quote! Such a simple way of saying, what I've been trying to say, since I first posted on this New Global Mytholgy discussion.
"Myths are the poetic expression of mystical experience.""

"This is wonderful Scott!  I was not aware the APA had made this revision. It is wonderful to know spiritual emergencies are beginning to be more fully understood. Thank you so much for sharing this. :-)"

  • Scott 
    Thanks a lot Scott,
    Tell me what you have got,
    That I have not,
    I fit in with others 
    Who do  think
    That am the missing link.

  • Scott Thank you so much ,
    But we are in deep trouble I think;I love simple you love complex 
    So it will be like my last friendship,
    I followed her beliefs, the green man entered my life 
    I am a artist ,I painted what she desired ,and thing were going fine,
    Until I expressed my views on Jung ;
    The fox entered our hen coop ,feathers flew,and so did she;
    But I have a open mind ,I even accepted a friends multi-universe
    Seeing  other minds, that match our own,exist in our huge universe
    At 82 my mind is still flexible,and ever learning as suggested was beneficial, 
    I listened all night last night to Stephen Hawkins secretary, read his ideas 
    That I find interesting,
    I have Joseph Campbell's book, Hero with a Thousand Faces, Jungs Man and his Symbols
     But I really love,Jungs  Modern Man in search of his Soul ,best of all of his books,
    I play that on a regular basis on my tablet now ,
    But I do love different opinions,
    I find you can always learn from them,

       

  • HI Scott! Sorry for the delay. I've been traveling a bit and in the process of packing up to move to Cali.

    I've received more helpful information from the composers I seek to collaborate with and am going to spend more time developing how I'd like to accomplish this. It's so much larger than I anticipated and they, as musicians, need a lot of details, of which I do not have readily available. I only have the idea. So I am going to keep you posted. 

    Once I arrive In California I will give you an update.

  • Hello Scott,

      You have NO idea how refreshing it is to come across people that are so like-minded, and can actually communicate back to me in the same [if not similar] language! So refreshing...

    To answer your questions:

    >>Scott: Are you trying to integrate those disciplines and schools of thought into your own consciousness, and have unanswered questions?

    I've spent the past 6 years engaged in that process. Not only did I feel like I was going to go crazy [because of what was coming up, downloaded and being revealed], I just didn't see it outside of myself. So trying to find my place in the world amongst people has been a difficult journey. It was always "Is this right? I don't see it out there, so how can I confirm if this is true or simply me going crazy?" The only unanswered question I have now is, "Where's my place?" Going to a dance studio will turn the same results as going to a non-profit focusing on only one aspect. It has to be all of the above, in a similar form and fashion.

    >>Scott:Or have you already done that, and are trying to express it in a work of art, like a movie or play?

    Yes, yes, and YES! A movie is a bit ambitious, but it's an aspiration. But the main and foremost goal is to express it in a work of art - visual, craft, and theater. In my solitude I try to find completion in just utilizing one medium, but my source will not allow me to rest until I've done some sort of expression in all media I have experience in. So it shall be the same with regards to sharing with the collective beyond myself.

    >>Scott:I'm curious about the basic theme of your dream work? It sounds like a major epiphany! Can you be a little more specific about it? 

    My dreams have always had a strong sense of 'more' to them. When I first began documenting them [at the age of 16], I clearly understood the difference between working out daily issues and discovering my 'Self' - identity and purpose. 11 years later and they are more clear, focused, and intense - experiences spill over into waking life, which simply means there's more of an integration than in the past.

    With regards to the theme, that is something I have to be careful with regards to sharing. Many have an understanding as to what purpose dreams serve. What I will say is this collaboration serves to reveal that.

  • HI Scott. Thank you for the welcome and commenting .

    I'm trying to integrate Jungian Psychology, Dream Work, Mythology [works inspired by Joseph Campbell],Mysticism, Religious studies inspired by Mircea Eliade, Music composition, Art - movement, visual [concept of Calligraphy included], writing, expressive, Technology - holographic projection, Photography and videography. That's the majority. 

    Try to picture the image of our Solar System. You see how it works? That's what I am trying to do on a much larger scale with the above disciplines, Dreamwork at the core as the Sun.

    I'm having difficulty finding a way to approach individuals in each of the disciplines in order to provide in-depth details.
