“Permaculture Visions? Rethinking Our Past and Future Mythology”

Article by Marian A. Lee.
Study Questions from Willi Paul Studio / Planetshifter.com

http://www.planetshifter.com/myth/2478

- excerpt -

"Joseph Campbell, a professor and lecturer on comparative mythology and author of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, found that danger exists when the social order requirements of social institutions such as religion and political interpretations “…press on people mythological structures that no longer match their human experience”.  Furthermore, the symbol or metaphor which expresses the societal mythology must possess a “spiritual aura” signifying a living spiritual core of awakening.  If mythological symbols are “…reduced to the concrete goals of a particular political system of socialization”, they lack the “connotative meaning of metaphoric imagery” that leads to a realization of transcendence.  This type of concrete symbol merely denotes a localized ethnic meaning caught in a static historical context devoid of universal spiritual significance."

I'm actually working on something to fix this for my family. We have a benefit from knowledge of ancestry reaching back to Migration Period of Classical Europe and Native American Ancestry back to the 1800s. A culture is the sum of its parts: cuisine, heroes and Gods, manner of dress, values and ethics, art, etc... I'm constructing a new culture from the experiences of my life including the above and other facets.

Hi Ryan Hobbs -

Thanks for the feedback although it would be helpful to know what you are "fixing?"

Your aim of "constructing a new culture from the experiences of my life" sound most intriguing. Are you building new rituals and traditions?

The particulars of the religious aspect probably go in the cider press section. But I am building a new culture including religious ceremony and holidays based on a new calendar that comes from the life cycle of a farm and forest. My clothing style for important events is based on the simplicity of Nordic and Japanese traditional attire mixed together. My cooking at home is very California-ish as it is where I was born and where my parents were raised, but I also love some Eastern Woodlands cooking I learned from my Great Grandpa who was born in Kingsport TN in 1921 and whose parents were from around Big Cove NC. His stories, and those of my other family, and of my known ancestors provide me with Heroes and Gods to shape the identity aspect of long history, belonging, and neotribal community cohesion through shared stories and experience.
