A cliche is not a myth. A myth is deep truth. The word mythos derives from the Greek verb musteion, which itself means "to close the eyes or mouth." That is, myth is not fanciful untruth, like a cliched truism, but that meaningful human-lore emanating from darkness and silence.
Myth is what comes when we pray and think. Cliche is what occurs when we speak.
Religion is cliched in our day. This is true of the Sa'afists (or Salafists), from whom spring such diverse Islamists as Al-Queda and the Muslim Brotherhood. It is equally true of the mega-church Christian movements and nationalistic Judaism.
Success depends on numbers. Numbers rely on the cliche.
This should frighten religious people. The cliche war is running against the religious. The Post-Modern Religious Cliche is this: religion is the direct cause of all major wars in human history.
Many religious people accept this cliched truth and sigh. Deeper thought would reveal wars are usually the result of envy, ambition, greed and misunderstood rivalries. No one wants to go to war shouting, "I am a greedy fool who wishes to kill his neighbor for gain." So, religion is used to cover atrocity."
I submit this warning. If religious persons do not find a way to communicate deep truth from the quiet places of the soul, where God most often eloquently dwells with homo sapien, religion will disappear as a civilizing force and homo sapiens will shortly follow.
Opinions expressed here are mine alone but I am right and others should start to take up this cry.
