About

My intent with this blog is explore religion, philosophy, and mythology from the approach of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and Emmanuel Swedenborg. I wish to explore these topics from a Universalist, symbolic, non-dogmatic standpoint. My hope is to present an alternative to the reductionist and literal dogmatic approaches. As a Swedenborgian and Universalist I will be discussing that topics from these perspectives, but all are welcome to comment. May Peace Be with you All!

  1. Appears you are new here; I started my blog in March and seems like we have a lot in common in terms of our interests and focal points of our blogs: I write on myth, culture, religion, mostly stemming from the depth psychological traditions of Jung and Hillman. Hope you have the time to check it out and looking forward to reading more of your thoughts.

      Josh, thank you for the comment. I am indeed new to WordPress. I have been vlogging on Youtube for some time and also use to have a different blog since 2007. I decided with my changes, as you saw in my first post on here, that I needed a new blog to express myself. Glad to be here. I will certainly check out your blog and am looking forward to continued conversation with you. Take care.-Colin

    Hi Colin,

    Good luck on your new blog! I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far. I am a cradle Swedenborgian, having grown up in a family of Swedenborgian ministers. However, in recent years I have moved away from the organizational expression of that faith toward a broader perspective and outreach.

    I remain a Christian in the mold of Swedenborg’s interpretation of Christianity, though I do depart from Swedenborg on some points that I see as non-essential, and as influenced by the science and culture of his day. I also view all religions as legitimate pathways to God for those who are sincere in their practice of them. Here is my statement on that issue–which also happens to be the all-time most popular post on my blog:
    If there’s One God, Why All the Different Religions?
