A Quote for Today

Today’s quote may require some explanation.  Joseph Campbell in his book on transforming religious metaphor, Thou Art That, records the thought,

…when you are given a dogma telling precisely what kind of meaning you shall experience in a symbol, explaining what kind of effect it should have upon you, then you are in trouble.

Think on these words and these times.  If you then feel yourself to be in need of explanation, read the quote and think some more.  It will come to you and be better than any explanation I could give.
