Second Thoughts on Psyche’s 2nd Task

What I wrote about Psyche's 2nd task last week just hasn't sat well with me; and so I'd like to share with you my amended and additional thoughts. 1) Psyche doesn’t want power. I previously implied that Psyche sought power, but she doesn't. Gathering fleece off the brambles isn't simply a clever means of gaining power -- she doesn't want to be a power-broking, head-butting ram -- she's just doing what needs to be done to safeguard her husband. Perhaps it's when we begin to seek power for power's sake that we become the ram in the field. Can you think of a time when who got the credit was irrelevant; you only cared about getting the 'good thing' done? Perhaps your children weren't getting what they needed at school. Or maybe you had taken on a project to improve your school, community or church.
