Have you embarked on your own heros journey? Are you living a life driven by your life-purpose? Or are you letting your life live you?
Life is a study in love and fear. When we are passionate about anything, that love empowers us. When we are afraid, we easily become confused, overwhelmed, even paralyzed. However, when centered in our true selves and our mission, we use our minds for creation rather than survival. This shift is the beginning of the heros journey. Sometimes all it takes is a little introspection andcourage.
We all grow up looking up to authorities (parents, teachers, leaders) for guidance, protection, and inspiration. This is essentially healthy because most adults know more about life than children. However, each maturing child eventually reaches a fork in his or her road: to follow cultural patterns/programs and live the life he or she was trained to live OR to begin making personal choices and rely on inner guidance for direction.
For those who choose this inner-directed way of life, they begin the first step in Joseph Campbells Heros Journey by leaving the safety and security of the known. Such are the heroes and heretics, the ones who are ever-changing both themselves and their world.
