The heroic life is living the individual adventure.
There is no security
in following the call to adventure.
Nothing is exciting
if you know
what the outcome is going to be.
To refuse the call
What you don’t experience positively
you will experience negatively.
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
The goal of the hero trip
down to the jewel point
is to find those levels in the psyche
that open, open, open,
and finally open to the mystery
of your Self being
or the Christ.
That’s the journey.
It is all about finding
that still point in your mind
where commitment drops away.
