Excerpt

Hard-Wired for Stories

Maybe you have not thought of it this way before, but you are hard-wired for stories. I will show you.

When you see something weird or funny, what do you do the first chance you have? You tell a friend or your spouse, or even a stranger. You cannot wait to tell someone all about it.

People who have lived through extreme difficulties or tragedies find comfort and healing by coming together to share stories. It helps you feel less alone and afraid.

If you have children and/or pets, the only thing you love more than hearing about other people’s kids and/or pets is talking about your own.

Which brings me to this truth: the only thing a person likes more than hearing or reading a story is telling one.

Whether you realize it or not, you
have loved stories all your life. Maybe you preferred tales of King Arthur’s knights or maybe true experiences of real life heroes. Either way, you cannot help but crave a good “yarn.”

You are hard-wired for stories. This tradition extends all the way back through time and history. Think back to what it must have been like at the dawn of humanity.

Imagine you are one of the first humans. Earlier, you were out looking for food when you had a close encounter with a huge saber-toothed tiger that almost ate you for lunch. The first thing you do is tell the rest of your clan about it.

You are hard-wired for stories – both hearing them and telling them. Your brain even goes into a more receptive alpha state when listening to a story.

Remember your childhood. Perhaps at some point you felt you were too grown up to enjoy grandpa’s stories or your favorite fairytales, yet secretly you loved them still.

Every great spiritual tradition has creation myths and sacred stories passed along for generations. You will also find folk tales all over the world with similar themes. And don’t forget those cautionary fables and tales that teach children what dire consequences befall those who misbehave.

Instead of seeing someone from a different spiritual path, religion, cultural or ethnic background as alien or someone not like yourself, practice the art of openness

What are your most treasured tales? Respond to the journal activities in the special online environment.
