This is a really beautiful post by Cnawan Fahey. I had missed it on my feed, as this has been quite a busy week, but it popped up from my dear Laura Bruno, who celebrates a birthday today – Happy Birthday Faery Sister! – as a reblog.

Cnawan also shares a really insightful article by Joseph Campbell , again with interpretative take-aways that are supportive in understanding and leading an authentic life.

I hope you enjoy it.
