3 Incredible Hidden Truths You Can Learn From Ancient Myths

Published

on

Just like most people, I used to ignore mythology because I perceived myths as unrealistic stories. However, I became interested in myths after reading the African Bushman Creation Myth. This myth made me think deeply about ancient myths. I wondered who created them and why ancient people believed in them despite their fictitious nature. I intuitively knew that there are some valuable things I can learn from these ancient stories.

I then researched on them extensively and I realized three incredible truths we can learn from myths.

  1. There is a Collective Unconscious And We Can Access It

After reading many myths while listening to Lana Del Rey, I realized that all myths had similar symbols and features. I wondered how these similarities appeared in myths created by societies separated by thousands of kilometers. I then researched on what great thinkers and mythologists thought about these similarities, and I realized that the similarities occurred because all human beings can access the collective unconscious.

According to Carl Yung, the collective unconscious is a part of our sub-conscious mind that possesses the history of thoughts of all mankind. Other scholars define it as the ‘subconscious mind that we all share.’ Therefore, different ancient societies created myths with similar structures despite living far from each other because they accessed this part of their mind that is common to all mankind.

Most of us can’t access the collective unconscious because we are unaware of its presence and value. We don’t know that accessing this mind can make us highly creative and enable us to know everything about humanity.

  1. Inspiring Lessons from The Hero’s Journey

Most myths narrate about a hero who undergoes various trials before achieving his goals. This hero often avoids following his life purpose because he fears the unknown. The good thing is that a magical helper appears to help the hero achieve his ultimate purpose.

The hero’s journey enabled me to notice four inspiring things the ancients knew about following one’s dreams/purpose.

  • It’s normal to be afraid to follow one’s dreams.
  • The good life is on the other side of fear.
  • The universe will always provide a mentor.
  • If you follow your dreams without giving up, the universe will help you achieve them. As Joseph Campbell, the famous mythologist put it, ‘Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls ’.
  1. God Exists

Many ancient myths narrated about an all-powerful supernatural being that created the world.

The presence of this supernatural being in many myths reveals that ancient men instinctively knew that The Creator existed. For them, the intelligent design visible in all creatures was enough evidence for God’s existence.

Conclusion

With this in mind, we must stop perceiving myths as meaningless fictitious stories. Instead, we must join the likes of Joseph Campbell and study myths because by doing so we’ll realize fundamental truths that can guide us in the journey of life.

By the way, I’m still studying myths because I need to understand all the mysteries surrounding them, and I will share with you any nuggets of wisdom I will uncover from my research.

Life is Hard Because Virtue is Dead

Life is Hard Because Virtue is Dead

Since antiquity, great individuals such as Jesus, Muhammad, Socrates, Pythagoras, Epictetus, and Benjamin Franklin, advised their followers to be virtuous. According to them, being virtuous makes life easier or better.

I used to doubt this idea about virtue. However, after observing life in the modern society, I discovered that modern life is hard because people are unvirtuous. I realized that life could have been so wonderful if everyone embraced virtue by adopting qualities such as gentleness, self-discipline, courage, wisdom, kindness, perseverance, patience, love, contentment, and benevolence.

For instance, no one could be poor if we were all loving because we could have committed ourselves to helping each other. Politicians and capitalists could have avoided taking more than enough, and they could have given part of their wealth or profits to the poor.

N/B  – The world has enough resources for everyone. Things only appear scarce because some individuals took more than enough. They are too selfish to share, and they don’t care about the poor. In other words, they are unvirtuous.

Anyway, there could be no wars if people embraced the virtue of contentment. Throughout history, many wars occurred because of greed. Many people were killed because some countries wanted more than enough, and they used war to force other nations to surrender their resources to them.

Other than that, jealousy, hatred, and malice could never exist if we all embraced the virtue of benevolence: we could have been happy for other people’s success and we could have helped our relatives, friends, and neighbors build success instead of trying to pull them down.

In addition, people could never be stressed about the future if we all embraced the virtue of courage because it could have made us embrace change/uncertainty.

In summary, life would be so easy and sweet if everybody embraced virtue. We could have created heaven on earth. Suffering would end and life would stop appearing hard because we would have been willing to help each other overcome problems. Mental complications such as depression and anxiety would never exist because virtue eradicates factors such as competition, the need to appear better than others, the need to compare ourselves with others, and worrying about what other people think.

We could have seen the beauty of life, and for this reason, we could have spent most of our time praising the Creator for bringing us into an amazing world.

Therefore, life is not hard folks. We are making it hard by ignoring virtue, which is the key to an easy life.

Lastly, never curse your existence because you think life is hard. Instead, be thankful for life and embrace virtue because even if it will not make life easier for everyone, it will make your life easier. You’ll create a heaven for you and those around you.

THE END.

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams

For years, mainstream science has lied to us about dreams by informing us that dreams are meaningless. For this reason, most of us never try interpreting our dreams to find their deeper meaning.

I used to believe this scientific viewpoint of dreams. However, I doubted it after deeply analyzing my dreams.

While analyzing my dreams, I noticed that my dreams felt so real that sometimes I couldn’t know that I was dreaming. Besides, I realized that some of my dreams were prophetic because sometimes I dreamt about a situation that I would later experience in real life. As well, I noticed that I had bad dreams when stressed, and good dreams when I was happy with my life.

These realizations enlightened me that dreams are not meaningless as scientists claim because nothing meaningless can neither be prophetic nor can it have the ability to reflect emotions. Furthermore, feeling as if I was experiencing a real experience while dreaming encouraged me to believe that dreams had an importance that most of us don’t know.

I thus decided to study dreaming deeply, and I realized that many ancient people believed dreams were powerful. Most cultures believed dreams connect us to a spiritual reality, and therefore, we are always in the spiritual realm when we dream.

At the same time, some ancient cultures, e.g. the Egyptian and Mexican cultures, believed dreams provide us with coded messages from powerful spiritual entities. These cultures took dreams so seriously that they established schools specialized in dream interpretation.

Besides ancient cultures, I discovered that modern religions believe dreams are meaningful. For instance, Christian leaders preach that God speaks to us through dreams, and they use the story of Joseph to prove that dreams are messages from God. Also, Muslims believe dreams are important, and they believe some dreams come from the devil while others come from the ego.

Furthermore, many famous psychologists of the 19th century believed dreams were important. For instance, Carl Jung, a well-known psychologist, believed in the importance of dreams for as he wrote, ‘we have forgotten that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.’

In addition, he also believed that ‘dreams are a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.’

Having said that, does it make sense that dreams are meaningless as mainstream scientists claim? Did ancient cultures, modern religions and psychologists guess the importance of dreams, or did they notice that dreams were important after studying them?

Anyway, I believe dreams are important, and the Illuminati, through mainstream science, deceived us about dreams because it didn’t want us to gain spiritual insights – from dreams – that can lead to a spiritual awakening.

The Illuminati usually strives to make everything meaningless since it doesn’t want us to ponder the magical mysteries of the universe that would lead to spiritual and mental growth. Therefore, one way to impede spiritual growth was to lie to us about dreams through mainstream science.

The good thing is that we are now awakening to the truth, and we’ll study and meditate on dreams until we understand the spiritual secrets within them that will help us awaken to our true spiritual nature, know the infinite possibilities of the physical world, and rise above the corrupt system of the Illuminati.
