The Ascent of Spring

Inspiration

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.

Food For Thought

Spring is here. On the drive to work this morning, I saw the almond and cherry trees’ beauty blossom, the birds chirped, and I was reminded that the beauty of spring is finally here. What beauty there is in the simplicity of life’s rebirth process.

In today’s podcast, Spring is Here: The Myth of Persephone, I explore the cyclical nature of the death and rebirth process common to this Greek Goddess. The daughter of a Zeus and Mother Nature (Demeter) herself, Persephone descended into the underworld, partook in its fruits, and with whom we see the process of rejuvenation first hand with the birth of each new year.

In The Myth Within, we explore the symbolic growth potential each person has through the analysis of collective symbols present in myth, fairy tales, fables, folk tales, and stories of religious perspective. The values hidden in these literary gems and stories of faith, represent a means to which humanity can aspire, as it learns ways to find meaning in this journey called life.

Namaste, my friends. May blessings find you on your journey to advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.

In today's episode, Dr. Tom explores the archetypal symbols of infinity, eternity, and heaven as written about in William Blakes poem Auguries of Innocence. Perception and our capacity to overcome its sensory deficit towards understanding the miracles abound are examined. How can we find the divine?
