The Mythic in Daily Life

By Adam J. Pearson

Symbolic death, travel to other worlds, and resurrection do not only occur in myths; we all have these experiences.
At night, we experience the death of sleep.
While asleep, we travel to otherworldly dream realms.
Finally, in the morning, we return from our sleepy underworld and are resurrected into the land of waking life.
Our ordinary lives are woven out of mythic themes and our myths are woven out of the themes from our daily lives.
