This episode of Living Myth draws upon the Mayan origin story which describes human beings as the missing ingredient in creation. Specifically, humans were fashioned to be the conscious witnesses to the wonder of the world and to express gratitude for the gift of life. The big problem in the story, which is reflected in the increasing dilemmas of the modern world, is that humans tend to be too soft-headed or too hard-hearted to be vessels for genuine imagination. The old tale tries to help us find new ways to recover the gift of life and live with genuine vision.
