Essay Topic 1
In many ways, what's going on in Chapter 6, Part 2, is a form of myth making, of creating a spiritual, acceptable, and hopefully peace-achieving explanation of what, in most experiences of being human, is the physically oriented, confusing, and frustration-triggering question of why we're here.
1. Explain why this book could be called "myth making." Use examples from the text to support your answer.
2. Do you think there is a spiritual, acceptable, and hopefully peace-achieving explanation of why humans exist? Why or why not. Use examples to support your opinion.
3. Do you think most humans wonder why they are here? Why or why not? Use examples to support your opinion.
Essay Topic 2
During a reconnection with his Soul Group, the narrator suddenly becomes aware that Charlene had been present during the Indian-White conflict. She had been "an Indian woman of great power, but often ignored by the envious male chiefs because of her gender."
1. Do you think it is possible the chiefs ignored Charlene because of her gender or because she was so powerful? Why or why not?
2. With research, explain how women have been ignored or relegated to secondary positions in most religions.
3. Given that women have been ignored or relegated to secondary positions in most religions as true, why do you think this has occurred?
Essay Topic 3
What the author is researching and discovering are old truths recycled here as they have been throughout the centuries. It could be argued that this is part of his narrative and thematic point, that humanity has been aware of the truths being espoused but has been unwilling and/or unable to fully act on them (because, the narrator/author would probably say) of the Fear.
1. Why do you think the truths the author is espousing are old ones known and thought about throughout the ages? Use examples to support your opinion. Use research if necessary.
2. Do you think that that the author writing about old truths is part of his narrative and thematic point, that humanity has been aware of the truths being espoused but has been unwilling and/or unable to fully act on them? Why or why not? Use examples to support your opinion.
3. How do you think fear blocks people from becoming enlightened? How much do you think human reactions and behaviors are based on fear? Use examples to support your opinion.
