It has often been said that The Odyssey is the defining story of Western culture.  In this episode of Living Myth, Michael Meade tells parts of The Odyssey and draws connections to the current moment in which young people try to protect life and inspire the culture to change.  In the ancient tale, the goddess Athena appears as the source of wisdom, but also as the essence of nobility and justice at the very heart of democracy. As we witness the awakening of youthful voices all around us, the sense of an American odyssey can help ground and deepen the present moment and reveal how genuine wisdom can come from young souls.  

The point in youth, and at any turning point in life, is not to avoid trouble at all costs. The point is to find the right trouble to be in; for when in trouble we are closer to inner resources we did not know we had and nearer to the knowing spirit that brought us to life in the first place.
