Coaxing Shrek to Eat Johnny Depp

Some questions you can comment on are below as is video of the original presentation. So toss in your two cents!
What draws us to adventure, fairy-tale & legend?

Why do our lives seem so distant from these stories?

Are there dimensions of life that can be better understood through legends & fairy tales?

Is it possible that there is a spiritual world infusing the material world, much like the things of nature infuse the things of man?

I wonder if our lives could be closer to these stories if we weren't so complacent and fearfull. I wonder if we engaged with people and situations the way we were meant to, life would be more of an adventure. That's why the stories compel us in the movies. Our hearts were designed for that.

Maybe.

Yeah, it reminds me of the whole "wild at heart" thing. (John Elderidge). We've lost our hearts and so we've lost the adventure that life was meant to be.

For me, it's all about being in love. I don't mean being in love as in getting goosebumpy over some guy, marrying him, and having his babies. I mean being in love with a capital BEING. I mean an epic romance that is worthy of story. Something legendary. Something supernatural.

I've been in love like that, and it changes everything. Absolutely everything. I wish I could live in the throes of it every day, but sometimes it slips away leaving me an ordinary housewife once again. But when it hits me - when I feel the heat of his eyes on me - I am suddenly Cinderella and every fairy tale is true.

"God will look to every soul like its first love because He is its first love." - C.S. Lewis

“Just as speech is invention about objects and ideas, so myth is invention about truth. We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God.” - Tolkien
