Dungeon Prompts

This week’s prompt is: Myth Making

“The point of mythology or myth is to point to the horizon and to point back to ourselves: This is who we are; this is where we came from; and this is where we’re going. And a lot of Western society over the last hundred years – the last 50 years really – has lost that. We have become rather aimless and wandering.”

– J. Michael Straczynski

 Today’s Prompt:

We all tell stories.  This week, create a story that sums up the main lesson of your life.  I know, there are so many lessons to choose from, so take some time and think about the one thing that you’ve learned which you would most like to pass on to future generations.  There could be a lot of things that you want to pass on, but this has to be your life’s lesson, not somebody else’s.  Now that you have your lesson, figure out a  creative way of passing it on, whether it be a story, a poem, a song or a picture.

The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment. 

Dungeon Prompts can be a vehicle for us to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit.  Take the prompt, explore the recesses of your mind, and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering.  Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.

To participate, all you’ll need to do is:

1.            Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”

2.            Link back to this page in the body of your post *

3.            Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**

 

*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.

  1. The word “myth” has two meanings. There are myths and myths. Common usage has myth as a false belief. The other meaning of myth is a spiritual image, the idea behind a sacred rite. The Madonna, the corn God, the story of the Exodus. Bashevis Singer in My Father’s Court states that as a child in the ghetto, the Bible stories were more real to him than the newspaper headlines. As you say, we are losing those mythologies. Our current generation lacks the guidance the traditional mythologies provided. Hollywood celebrities and a lot of false notions, or myths, fill the void. Human’s seem to require mythology. As for my own mistaken notions, I have too many to count. The main error I made – and continue to make – is the search for an answer, a key insight that will answer all my little questions and worries.

    1. I like the math. I read in a Blavatsky theosophy book re the golden proportion and other great symmetries – that we ask How can this be so, an apparently universal truth or pattern? The answer is That’s just how it is. All the best!
