    There are three main sites to source the myth videos. Tarvaa the Bard is my favorite for mood and his videos are more lengthy because he is more of a storyteller. A mix of the shorter and more comprehensive ones should be a good blend.

    Here is a taste of Tarvaa. The fire is a wonderful touch. Thor is featured.

    From the primordial Greek mythos, the bizarre Hecatonchires. The subtle insertion/insinuation of vanity on the part of Uranus is there to see when the Sophianic Narrative is known. Here begins the trashing of the Divine Feminine, with Her ultimately conspiring with Kronos, depicted as Her son (not) to castrate his father and take 'the throne' (that was never there) for himself. Nevertheless, fascinating story, IMO.

    After the Hecatonchires, something more soothing and Celtic/Irish.

    yeah, I like these...

    It's got to be inconvenient flying around with a whetstone in your head...wouldn't wanna be Thor. One interesting thing about most tales like this, across the mythological spectrum including the abrahamic traditions, is that 'sleep' seems to be an integral and important 'meme'. Anyone have any ideas why. Off the top of mine, I would consider that sleep implies dreaming and dreaming with its connection to the other worlds might be the source. I love stories like these though...Every since reading about Paul Bunyan and Pecos Bill, I've been fascinated by legends.

    All images of Hecate are but hints are what is almost beyond our comprehension. She does Her best to allow us to perceive Her though. If we choose to work with Her and she reciprocates.

    "In many ancient civilizations, the night with its blackness was revered, and the secrets of nighttime consciousness explored." (me: dreaming) "Correlations were made in which such knowledge was used consciously in the daytime. The two seemingly separate aspects of consciousness merged, and there were flowerings of art and civilization that are, in your terms now, almost impossible to conceive.

    Hey Mr Wiz:

    This is not a test for you, you said you read the book in 1972-73 when it was written. I'm curious, the book is a great, 'practical', model for conducting one's psychological life. Verging on brilliant in its articulation or even supernatural if the book can pass this test:

    Do you still have it and if you do...Is there a Chapter 14, pg. 282 and if there is, what is the last word on the page?

    thanks

    Is that The Nature of Personal Reality? If so, have to go to the basement to look for it but, want to make sure.

    I looked for the book and it would appear it is no longer in my collection. Must have given it to someone.

    We just missed each other.

    BTW. The Seth books were great for the time they were written and still stand as intellectual engagements for getting to the higher mind/self. As a Gnostic, there are clearly a few omissions but, it is now clear to me that much very relevant information can be given while avoiding the central and most important part. It is not about who we are but, what we are.
