In Athens, 388 BC Plato called on the City Fathers to banish all storytellers from the city for the “safety” of the citizens. You see, Plato was afraid of the power of stories. He knew that storytellers influenced people by concealing powerful concepts in entertaining yet deceptively simple stories. Plato also knew that concealing an idea within a story magnified the power of that idea far beyond simply sharing the idea alone.
The reason is that stories mirror the way we think.
We literally think in narrative structures – whether it’s talking about our day, connecting with a friend, or reflecting on our experiences – and because of this, stories imprint themselves into our brains naturally.
Stories are how we understand best.
The ironic thing is, even though I’ve created the #1 Spiritual Stories website online… I was never really interested in writing stories. Seriously.
That’s actually changed, and soon I’ll share with you how I went from having never written a story, to empowering others to write stories and make meaningful changes in their own life stories.
