Rethinking the Abyss

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure. - Joseph Campbell

This quote has been on my mind as of late. We all have an abyss of sorts, don't we? Some dark place that we know exists, but we fear going down there. Could it be that our darkest abyss is in fact a doorway that opens to a world we were made for?

We tend to view our abyss as our destruction, but in reality, it may lead to our salvation. What do you think?

Dear Mr. D'Ambrosio,

As a former student of yours, I can corroborate what an excellent and articulate educator and person you are. I particularly enjoyed "Ordered Disorder", as it shed new light on life's challenges and presented a new perspective on how to face and overcome them. It has a powerful and true message that chaos, altough it can overtake and control our lives, can breed new life and being. I enjoy reading your insightful blogs and look forward new postings.
