joseph campbell on mythology and the affirmation of life

joseph-campbell_bill_moyers

Eternity is not some later time. Eternity is not a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now which thinking and time cut out. This is it. If you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere. The experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life.

-Joseph Campbell (at about 15:20 into interview with Bill Moyers)
