The Value of Myth

Posted in Family, Philosophy, quote(s), thoughts with tags , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2011 by Tim R Wilson

Oh how true this is …

“The Value of myth is that it takes all the things you know and restores to them the rich significance which has been hidden by the veil of familiarity.”

~C.S. Lewis

A lot of times we get so caught up in life that things get so mundane and we forget about the truly wonderful and beautiful. An example would be the first time you met your lover, how enchanting she was … four kids ago. We need to find the time to weigh the value of truth and myth. It doesn’t take long to find the truth wanting. You know its probably really true! Maybe she is really that special!

Quotes On Jesus You may never heard of …

 “How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rogers or Captain Kangaroo?” – Phillip Yancey

“He was not at all like the psychologist’s picture of the integrated, balanced, adjusted, happily married, employed, popular citizen. You can’t really be very well ‘adjusted’ to your world if it says you ‘have a devil’ and ends by nailing you up naked to a stake of wood.”

The Creature

An interesting quote I came across …

Every time you make a choice, you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God… To be the one kind of creature is…joy and peace and knowledge and power. To be the other means madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence and eternal loneliness. Each of us at each moment is progressing to the one state or the other.

~CS Lewis
