'We live in story as a fish lives in the sea. Life is a journey and the hidden meaning is revealed in the unfolding of a theme. Sacred myths are the deepest of all stories holding the bedrock truths by which we live. To find our theme is to come to self-discovery. Myth is told in time that has no tense. Stories tell of a past that is ever present drawing events into an all-embracing Now. No one holds the total dream.'  

       Rod Cameron describing some of what the Alcheringa is.


'We cannot speak universal truth

But if we each speak our own truth,

Humbly and honestly,

The Truth will speak itself.'

       James Cornell
