The Power of the Metaphor

2 Jun

Metaphors are spiritual. They’re physical representations of our innermost workings. The story of the Prodigal son is a metaphor about a son physically leaving his father but the power behind the words is that they actually represent something so much more, a spiritual leaving and then a spiritual return.

The very best stories are metaphors. They are the best because they are accessible in layers… engaging in their physical arc, but moving the audience emotionally on a spiritual level. If it is sounds mystical and overwhelmingly deep..? It is. But so are you.
