An Orientation To The Journey Myth
The Hero’s Journey ® Myth spans across all cultures and time….
The universal myth of the hero’s journey ® will always be the one form-changing, yet curiously consistent story that we will find being told underneath the minutia of our daily lives.
The journey myth is an ever-enlivening and ever-renewing story, one that continues to provide us with meaning, vitality, wonder and awe whenever we are willing to slow down and drop below the details of living on the surface of life, and connect with the deeper images and narratives that give our life its zest, beauty and mystery.
The journey of the hero always points towards the ‘challengingly persistent suggestion’ of more remaining to be discovered within us than we could ever know with our current level of thinking, and more to be experienced than we could ever anticipate, hope for, or predict in advance.
Throughout the course of human history, in all cultures and within every life circumstance, this activating story of the hero has come forth. Those who embrace this role do not see themselves as heroes, and they are not necessarily extraordinary people; most typically, they are ordinary people who have embraced their own unique path in a devoted, exceptional or extraordinary way.
Through their consistently ‘do-able’ actions, they become a living, personified inspiration of whatever potential lies within the consciousness of our human bodies and minds. It is not an exaggeration to say that the hero’s myth provides us with a ‘secret opening‘ through which the life force energies of the universe come down and into human beings, making the eternal world manifest here in our daily world.
Joseph Campbell called this ‘becoming the zeal of eternity for incarnation in time’. When we are actively living into and coming forth from the hero’s myth, and when we actively take up our own personal journey, we both embody a personal presence, while also being aware of and connected a presence larger and beyond what we typically live.
One way to know whether on not this interactive web course journey format is meant for you is to simply feel whether or not these words speak to you. It is important that you are able to listen with your heart, and not your head.
If these words and passages bring you alive, if they stir you up in some curious way, you already have your response. If not, then it simply isn’t meant for you, or the time is not right.
You can let it be as simple as that.
Awake. Aware. Enlivened. Engaged.
