Episode 176 - Turning to Wisdom

This episode of Living Myth begins with an ancient creation story in which the creator experiences doubt and makes a serious mistake at the very beginning of creation. Ever since then people have been having doubts and making mistakes. The current period of pandemic has been marked by tragic mistakes of judgement as well as mistaken policies that affect all of our lives. In the old creation story, a surprising turn of events brings wisdom into the world as an antidote to unnecessary mistakes and destructive lies. There may be no better time than now for a return of wisdom as a medicine for all that ails the world.
