We emerge from the unconsciousness of our birth to the development of a sense of self. But as we live in the modern world, the struggle is for overcoming the alienation that comes part and parcel with living. In order to do this, we need yet, to develop ‘a sense of life’–that feeling of beingness that informs us of our inherent divinity. Mythology has always been the key to this for all cultures and in all times. Both Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung have shown us that despite the apparent differences in the stories in each of these cultures, they have all produced parallel ideas; the collective unconscious being that which intimately connects the whole of the human race.
