Mind & Body Wellness: The Hero's Journey

buddha nature

We have only to follow the thread of the hero path. Where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we have thought to travel outwards, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.
- Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Joseph Campbell has been teaching me important stuff for over 20 years. Here is one of my favorite quotes from a book that changed my life. Recently, I read this quote again and realized that in subtle ways I had written about the hero's path on my blog. Here are some previous blog posts that give you ways for activating the hero's journey:
