The hero’s journey starts with the call.
And we all want to be the warrior, the princess or the emperor.
Or have you forgotten your childhood dreams?
To be “the hero”.
Sail to distant lands.
Joseph Campbell called it “follow your bliss”
Or “the call”
It is choosing happiness.
It is a place where….
We forget time.
We find flow.
It is a place where we discover the reason we are here.
Step into the gap.
Cloaked in the fear of impossibility.
We live in a world that buries us in busyness.
But ideas and creation come from the silence.
That’s the paradox.
And the problem?
We are afraid to stop and hear the call.
All of us are called but many of us aren’t listening.
Too busy to hear it.
Too afraid to start it.
Signed up to someone else’s call.
There are only three options that follow the call to “start” the hero’s journey. And we will find.
- You accept the call and depart on the journey. Never looking back.
- You receive the call and and refuse. But later you decide to sign on and plunge into the unknown.
- You refuse and turn back. Never to start.
We were never designed to be ordinary.
To be mundane.
To live with the pain.
Of not starting.
So what’s your call?
Have you stopped and listened to the still small voice.
Do you have the courage to start?
