Sacred Maps – Our Myths and Our Stories.

Sacred texts are maps. Maps reveal certain points and obscure the rest because they are a guide, not the territory. It is when we forget this that we end up in the dark and dismal place of dogma I wrote about here.

These Sacred Maps are an impetus and a lodestone in our personal explorations. When we read them as an injunction to be followed to the letter, we lose sight of ourselves and the Universe, even of G-d. As long as we keep this in mind, there are no right or wrong ways of reading our Sacred Texts. Take what you need, what speaks to your core, and leave the rest.
