Deuteronomy ,3 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: …. And the people answered him not a word. Proverbs ,19 Riches and honour are with me; yea , durable riches and righteousness…. Romans The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light….
I mean, this is the way God intended it. The end of things always is painful; pain is part of there being a world at all. You could say I will participate in this row, and I will join the army, and I will go to war. Let me tell you one story here, of a samurai warrior, a Japanese warrior, who had the duty to avenge the murder of his overlord.
And he actually, after some time, found and cornered the man who had murdered his overlord. And he was about to deal with him with his samurai sword, when this man in the corner, in the passion of terror, spat in his face. And the samurai sheathed the sword and walked away. Why did he do that? Does that ever happen to you? And to see life as a poem, and yourself participating in a poem, is what the myth does for you. JOSEPH CAMPBELL: I mean a vocabulary in the form, not of words, but of acts and adventures, which is connotative, which connotes something transcendent of the action here and which yet informs the whole thing, so that you always feel in accord with the universal being.
BILL MOYERS: Well, the interesting thing to me is, that far from undermining my faith, your work in mythology has liberated my faith from the cultural prisons to which it had been sentenced. Every mythology, every religion is true in this sense, it is true as metaphorical of the human and cosmic mystery. The story is, he ascended bodily to heaven. The story is that his mother, still alive, asleep, ascended to heaven. A purely literary problem. Now, according to the normal way of thinking about the Christian religion, we cannot identify with Jesus, we have to imitate Jesus.
But to say I am God, as Jesus said, is for us blasphemy. And the Buddha, the word means, the awakened one, the one who woke up to the fact that he was Buddha consciousness, and we are all to do that. This is the great realization of the Upanishads of India, already in the ninth century B.
All the gods, all the heavens, all the worlds are within us. They are magnified dreams, and what dreams are, are manifestations in image form of the energies of the body in conflict with each other. Myth is a manifestation in symbolic images, metaphorical images, of the energies within us, moved by the organs of the body, in conflict with each other. This organ wants this, this organ wants this: the brain is one of the organs.
The ground of being is the ground of our being, and the outward turned, we see all these little problems here, but inward, we are the source of them all. They go to pieces, they disintegrate, they succumb to vice and disease. But what the myth has to provide, I mean, just on this immediate level of life instruction, the pedagogical aspect of myth, it has to give life models. So the virtues of the past are the vices of today, and many of what were thought to be the vices of the past are the necessities of today.
It belongs to another age, another people, another set of human values, another universe. So the old period of the Old Testament, no one had any idea. The world was a little three layer cake, and the world consisted of something a few hundred miles around the Near Eastern centers there. No one ever heard of the Aztecs, you know, or the Chinese, even.
And so those whole peoples were not considered, even, as part of the problem to be dealt with. The world changes, then the religion has to be transformed. BILL MOYERS: Given what you know about human beings, is it conceivable to you that there is a point of wisdom beyond the conflicts of truth and illusion by which our lives can be put back together again, that we can develop new models?
All religions are true for their time.
It shows the state as a machine and asks: Is the machine going to crush humanity, or serve humanity? And humanity comes not from the machine, but from the heart. The father had been playing one of these machine roles, a state role. He was the uniform, you know?
And the removal of that mask, there was an undeveloped man there, there was a kind of a worm. I think that George Lucas really, really did a beautiful thing there. But then there comes a time when it begins to dictate to you. To me, that machine is almost alive. I could mythologize that damn thing. You remember that story?
I mean, the miracle of what happens on that screen, you know, have you ever looked inside one of those things? You have a system there, a code, a determined code that requires you to use certain terms. Now, similarly in mythology, each religion is a kind of software that has its own set of signals and will work. But a chap like myself, who likes to play with.
We have not a mythology that incorporates these.
