Literal vs Mythic Thinking Pt 2

Just a rule of thumb - when reading a myth, insert your own name where the names of gods or heroes occur. Then ask pointed questions about what is now your story.

i.e. - Genesis, Chapter One. The world you have created -- life, loves, work, values -- have you separated light from darkness? How have you ordered things, and would you pronounce them very good? Is every choice fulfilling the purpose for which you made it? Is your work complete, or have you decided to rest too soon? What would you say was the pinnacle of your creation?
