Chaos, the primary goddess who embodied the undefined place and the material that has no shape. Chaos, is the first to come into existence and has preceded all creation and every creation and all that is known. The word Chaos means the random space or the so-called cosmic nebula.
Chaos was the first being to come into existence, preceded each system and the origin of the universe and all that exists in it.
It's all a story! The 'Mythic' turning point in the classical labyrinth is about seeing the truth and messages that there are for you in stories. Many great teachers used stories to share their wisdom. Mythology consists of stories that can resonate on many levels. You are now moving into seeing and receiving guidance through the stories, myths and tales that you hear and see.
What story or myth appeals to you? What character from mythology speaks to you? Perhaps it is a modern story, novel, or movie that touches something in you. You are starting to see deeper meanings in the accounts of fictional and mythological characters. Perhaps the parables told by Jesus now appeal to you in a new way as you see greater depth of meaning in them.
Mythic also reminds you that you will be teaching through using stories. When you have information to share with others, put it in the form of a story and it will be remembered much better. You are a natural storyteller, and with practice the wisdom that you have to share will reach many people. Myths and stories help you and others better understand your lives. The truth is in the myth!
The Gefion Fountain is the largest monument in Copenhagen. According to an ancient legend, the Swedish king Gylfe offered the goddess Gefion as much land as she was capable of ploughing within one day and one night.
I had deliberately stayed away from the genre of mythological fiction for a while, bored to death with the unfruitful attempts to be innovative or, cool. But then came this book and it managed to rekindle and hold my interest in the same genre. It tells you the most familiar tale, that of Krishna's childhood, with such imaginative recreation that you're forced to turn pages with a frenzied curiosity. It includes elements of #Raajniti and #Kootniti to help rationalize the supernatural phenomena associated with Krishna's life and does so with convincing ease.
Ganesha is also known as Ekdanta, or the one with one tooth, because one of his tusks is broken. There are many popular legends associated with his broken tusk.
According to Padma Purana, one day sage Parashurama came to visit Shiva. However, Ganesha would not allow Parashurama in, for his father's sleep would be disturbed. When Parashurama insisted he be permitted entry, a fight broke out. In the course of their struggle, Parashurama threw his axe at Ganesha. This axe had been given to Parashurama by Lord Shiva. Recognizing the axe and out of reverence for his father, Ganesha refused to intercept the weapon. He bowed and took its impact on one of his tusks, which broke.
Ganesha, the embodiment of wisdom, is also depicted as a scribe to whom sage Vyasa dictated the Mahabharata. He is accepted as the god of learning and the wisdom. Sage Vyasa, the author of Mahabharata, wanted to dictate the verses of Mahabharata to someone who was capable of writing extremely fast, and without mistakes. Lord Brahma decided that Lord Ganesh was the only person equal to this great task. Vyasa told Ganesha that he would dictate the poem very fast and that Ganesha must take down all the verses without mistakes. Ganesha threw a challenge in return that he would write as fast as Vyasa dictates and that too correctly, but when dictating, Vyasa should not stop till he complete the entire Mahabharata. The dictation began, but in the rush of writing Ganesha's feather pen broke. He broke off a tusk and used it as a pen so that the transcription could proceed without interruption, permitting him to keep his word.! ✨🐘🌀💛🍚🌈🕉❤️📿🎨💜🌈🙏 Om Shri Ekdantaya Namah 💛🌈❤️🕉🌀📿🌈
