Neither God nor the gods are dead, but they've virtually disappeared because so few people are capable of carrying on authentic relationships with them anymore. The materialist delusion rules our world: Millions believe that nothing's real unless it can be perceived by the five senses. Churches and temples are full of ethical people, but most of them have no clue about how to know or feel or converse with the divine presences. So what can the dieties do, having been banished from our midst? Psychologist Carl Jung said the gods have no recurse but to worm their way into our lives as sickness and pathology. --Rob Brezsny "Free Will Astrology"
