Joseph Campbell


*When we talk about settling the  world’s problems,

we’re barking up the wrong tree.

The world is perfect.  It is a mess.

We are not going to change it.

Our job is to straighten out our own lives.

Joseph Campbell


*I think of this Joseph Campbell quote when I try to make sense of today’s world. History reminds us that today’s challenges are pretty much the same as the past, the differences being that consequences of actions have multiplied.

I accept Campbell’s words as a reminder.  I also believe choices help “to straighten out our own lives.”
