“Joseph Campbell endeared himself to the 1960s generation by telling them, “Follow your bliss,” and they followed it right into the waiting arms of the Nihilists.”- David Goldman

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”
― Joseph Campbell (author of the Power of Myth)
Over here!….I AM the answer!
Look no further, my good friend…
Please don’t myth the implication:
Christian culture’s reached The End.
Yes, at last, we’ve moved beyond it!
All that “holiness” and “sin”…
YOU’re the I AM of the Scriptures.
Let the party-time begin!
There’s no Meaning, man, to speak of….
Your best guess is what we’ve got!
There’s no “outside” Law to ponder…
You and I now call the shots!
You’re The Boss…yep, You’re The Captain…
And guess what, man….I AM, too!
We’ve got certain bliss to follow…
Pagan idol meat to chew!
* * *
Just imagine if You want to
That’s no baby in the womb,
A Cell-Mass of inconvenience…
Nasty threat of gloom ‘n’ doom.
To appease our Deep Desire…
After thoughts of Idol Pleasure….
Piled on Molech’s waiting fire.
Campbell’s soup of “Do Your Own Thing!”
New Age mantra gone to seed!
Funny how that sounds familiar…
(Sorta like the Wiccan Rede.)
