A lifetime of living, of studying, of learning, of making mistakes, of victories, of defeats and ultimately disability finally led to me delving into the depths of history, literature, philosophy, mythology and spirituality. That journey has suggested that there are, perhaps, some fundamental truths that have emerged from the dawn of civilisation told to us through oral stories originally then through the great mythologies of the Greco-Roman world and the great religions of the world. Those mythologies and spiritual stories have been re-told through great literature ever since and it is these classic books on our literary shelves that hold some of those great truths still.
Truths, I truly believe, when heard, ring bells within us; they resonate at a deeply spiritual level, one that moves our heart and spurs us to take action to emulate the characteristics we deem worthy of within the heroes, heroines, jokers, kings and queens, warriors and peace-makers we read about. Western Christianity would claim that Jesus is the ultimate role model; however, since Nietzsche claimed ‘God is dead. And we have killed Him.’ God, in society, has become ever less relevant in society; without God, to who are we accountable to?
