"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" - 'CJ' Power
