Here's a new video I just made entitled "Solomon at Gibeon contrasted with Paris and Midas."
This video explores one small corner of the question of what these ancient myths are teaching us and what their purpose might be.
In it, using examples from three specific myths -- the dream of Solomon at the high place of Gibeon described in 1 Kings 3, the famous Judgment of Paris, and the offer by the god Dionysus to Midas to grant whatever King Midas might ask -- I argue that the myths are telling us that we can ask the divine realm for help in this incarnate life, and that indeed we very much need the wisdom of that Other Realm in order to navigate this world and in order to help others and to govern in righteousness when in positions of responsibility.
However, the ancient myths from around the world also demonstrate rather clearly that we can go to the divine realm for other purposes as well -- purposes which do not help others, but rather do the opposite -- and the myths imply that requests of this nature may indeed be granted, even though such purposes are strongly condemned in the ancient wisdom given to humanity in the myths.
As I have stated in previous posts, it is quite likely that there are those who know this fact, but don't want you to know it -- see for example the following discussions:
The video explores a very important passage of Biblical scripture which I believe everyone would do well to contemplate, and some of the implications for our understanding of what the world's ancient myths are trying to teach us.
There appears to be abundant and ever-increasing evidence that awareness of this vital purpose of the world's ancient wisdom is being deliberately suppressed, by those who want to use the very real power available to us from the Other Realm for purposes which are in fact condemned by the myths themselves.
