The Hero's Journey
There is a universal pattern or story line, that exists in our lives. This pattern, occurs in small cycles and in larger cycles and is working to reveal the path, that our lives are intended to follow. When we flow against that path, events and situations can occur that bring us an opportunity to connect to our life purpose. We each have something unique to offer the world that brings us joy and has a positive impact on those around us. When we are out of alignment with our deepest truth or purpose, it can show up as a sign or a calling. Joseph Campbell refers to this cycle as The Hero's Journey.
"You enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path. Where there is a way or a path, it is someone else’s path. You are not on your own path. If you follow someone else’s way, you are not going to realize your potential."
~ Joseph Campbell
The Call to Find Purpose & Meaning
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” ~ Joseph Campbell
