"The energies that move the body are the energies that move the imagination. These energies, then, are the source of mythological imagery; in a mythological organization of symbols, the conflicts between the different organic impulses within the body are resolved and harmonized. You might say a mythology is a formula for the harmonization of the energies of life."
Joseph Campbell, interviewed by Joan Marler, in The Yoga Journal, Nov./Dec. 1987
