Found in the Myths of Time
Have you ever wondered why so many cultures have the same myths—stories about a brave hero slaying a monster and saving a damsel in distress?
- St. George and the Dragon
- Beowulf and Grendel
- Perseus and Andromeda
- Sleeping Beauty
- The Swan Princess
Those are just a few that you probably know.
It’s because they’re true.
We’re uncomfortable with the word myth. In our modern age we take it as meaning made up or a false belief or idea. But the original definition is a story of the supernatural, something that explains or reveals truth. In our disenchanted age we have made tales of the supernatural synonymous with falsehood. It should not be so. Every myth is a shadow cast by the light of truth.
