Story of the Week
"I know where the new archetype will come from. China is the great cocoon for
the birth of the new archetype. It will come out of our hearts when they
break open. Then the dream will become real, and the new archetype, the butterfly
will fly all over the Earth." From "On Butterflies & Essence" from a
Mythic Life by Jean Houston. The entire story is at http://www.motley-focus.com/essence.html">www.motley-focus.com/essence.html
Quotation of the Week
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elemental
truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the
moment one definitely commites oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have
occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour
all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which
no man could have dreamed would have come his way. - W.H. Murray
This Week's Links
www.int.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=116&art_id=vn20060211110132138C184427 In a scientific breakthrough that has
stunned the world, a team of South African scientists has developed a
revolutionary new, highly efficient solar power technology that will enable homes to
obtain all their electricity from the sun.
A minute of Joseph Campbell, with Bill Moyers, clarifying in "The
Power of Myth" Norie Huddle and I are focusing on how to play what she calls The
Best Game on Earth. The cover of her book "Butterfly" states that historian
Arnold Toynbee observed that the 21 civilizations he studied all collapsed for
the same reason: their inability to adapt to changes taking place either
within them or surrounding them. Like Joseph Campbell, Toynbee noted the
importance of myth in shaping the future of a civilization. For from the myth springs
the vision of new possibilities. Each nation, each culture tells such an
overarching story about itself. But when great changes take place, a new myth is
required. Butterfly is the myth for our times. It was published on Earth Day
1990 as a tale of great transformation to help usher in the "Butterfly Era"
of global civilization.
