MANY years ago I became interested in religious studies. I wanted to know about everyone's tradition, everyone's. I have spent the last 35 years in that pursuit. When I started studying Judaism, I went down the rabbit hole, so to speak, and fell in love the ancient traditions and ancient stories from the Mediterranean and little beyond. They are, in fact, the original self-help books. But they hold much deeper mysteries as well; they hold the keys to human condition and lay bare our soul in all its glory and its darkness. These are foundations of modern psychology, modern religion and spirituality, the shows we love, the movies that stand the test of time, and games on your computer. The ancient stories are the treasure maps to your soul. Sometimes they can be hard to read, but they will lead to new adventures and great wealth if your willing take on the adventure and the challenge to find yourself in them.
