I started reading a great book called The Wizard of Us that digs into my favorite story (The Wizard if Oz) and how it pertains to us as humans in our modern day journey. The author Jean Houston uses Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey as a guidepost for the foundation of the book. It’s so wonderful, I’m really enjoying it! #herosjourney #jeanhouston #josephcampbell #theherosjourney #wizardofoz #journey

Yep. It’s that time of year... the Flu Season has begun and claimed me as one of its first victims. Welp! I guess it’s time to catch up on some light reading... 🤓 ———————————————————————————

Happy Friday! 😁
Morning aphorism!

A HERO IS SOMEONE WHO HAS GIVEN HIS OR HER LIFE TO SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ONESELF.

Joseph Campbell

Sich etwas Größerem als man selbst hinzugeben ist eine mutige Angelegenheit. Das braucht schon viel Courage, finde ich. Es braucht die innere Sicherheit, dass man dadurch nicht verloren gehen kann. Dass man ein Tropfen im Meer ist, wie jeder Andere, und gleichzeitig ist man so wertvoll weil man dadurch an etwas viel Größerem als man selbst ist, mitwirken kann.
Bei dieser Wüstenreise erlebte ich das so!
Ich legte darauf keinen Fokus, es war mir nicht wichtig. Ich war mir nicht wichtig, die Frauen waren mir nicht wichtig, die Wüste war mir nicht wichtig. Und deshalb war ALLES bedeutsam!

Lass mich erklären:

Durch dieses „nicht wichtig „ öffnete sich ein unfassbar großer Raum. So groß, wie ich ihn noch nie wahrnehmen konnte. So friedvoll wie ich es noch nie fühlen konnte.
In diesem Raum war ALLES und NICHTS. Es war alles unwichtig und dadurch war alles BEDEUTSAM.
Als „wichtig“ bezeichnet unser Verstand und das Ego bestimmte Dinge. Was das für Dinge sind ergibt sich aus Erziehung und der Gesellschaft. Wenn man den Fokus vom „wichtig“ weg nimmt entsteht dieser Raum in dem DAS zum Vorschein kommen kann und sich DAS zeigt was die Essenz ist. Was wirkliche Bedeutung hat. Und das geht immer über einen einzigen Menschen hinaus.

Es ist ein Paradoxon! Mit dem Verstand nicht wirklich begreifbar und mit Worten so schwer beschreibbar.

Doch wenn du die Dinge, die dir wichtig sind lässt, kommen die Dinge zum Vorschein die Bedeutsam sind.
Dann, genau dann, findet die Hingabe an das statt, das größer ist als Du. Und das bezeichne ich als Liebe. Und dadurch entsteht ein tiefer Frieden.

This Day in History: It was Memorial Day weekend when Star Wars first opened in American theaters on May 25, 1977.
The movie saw incredible success; receiving seven Oscars, earning $461 million domestically, and grossing nearly $800 million world-wide.
Between Lucas’ and 20th Century Fox’s marketing push the movie quickly become a pop culture phenomenon.
Since then the franchise has continued to grow, spawning 5 films and 5 television series. As has the merchandise-from toys to video games to countless numbers of comic books, apparel, and more.
It has also given the world a lifetime’s worth of family arguments stemming from one very simple question, “Who shot first?” 😉

Bonus Factoid: George Lucas (and many other filmmakers) has long credited author and professor Joseph Campbell’s 1949 book, ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ as a source of inspiration. Campbell’s careful and exhaustive study of the world’s mythology led him to describe what he termed “The Hero’s Adventure”. The character of Luke Skywalker, is the quintessential hero. #thisdayinhistory#420rep #smartissexy#nerd#mythology#420geek#geek#themoreyouknow#gettingstronger#epilepsy#siezuressuck#710#moviehistory#lukeskywalker#hansolo#starwars#georgelucas#josephcampbell#invisibleillness#history#genx#mmjpatient#cbd#seizurefreedays#epilepsywarrior#imperfect#jbpopeggs#end420shame

Taking a page from @courtandkelly and sharing this quote. I feel like it perfectly captures my life right now. At my jobs in the past I got feedback constantly. And it was so hard to feel confident in my work. It was never good enough. Operating from that place of deficit never allowed me room to flourish. But now I’m living my bliss and I have started to develop a new confidence, a new level of joy. I’m living my purpose now and I’m attracting everything I need.

Finished this @audible_com / book today.. I highly recommend, my biggest insight: Mr. Campbell says “The guru has a path for you, he knows where you are on it, he knows where he is on it and he’s mainly way ahead, and all you can do is get to be as great as he or she is along that path, which he knows… and this is a continuation of the dependency situation of childhood, maturity consists in outgrowing that and becoming ones own authority for ones life, and what seems so romantic in the west to the eastern culture & people is this quest for the unknown.. What is unknown is the fulfillment of your own unique life.. the like of which has never existed on the earth and you’re the only one that can do it, people can give you clues, how to fall down and how to stand up but when to fall and when to stand and when you are falling and when you are standing… these are things only you can know and to do it in the way of your own talents is the only way to do it.” #life #journey #books #josephcampbell

When this came out my father was dying of cancer...it was a rough one to watch then, and is still pretty heavy on the heart to watch now. This is probably the least “Tim Burton” Tim Burton movie, & that really benefits it

“Life has no meaning. Each of has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.” ~ Joseph Campbell

The decision to start a new book always requires a little though. Where are we going to take ourselves on the next adventure. Although Solitude comes across as a bit dated on the science side (1988) it is interesting to read the links to Freud, Jung, Adler, and Dostoevsky. Stories of their own analysis of solitude and their personal stories as well.
.
Dostoevsky’s very solitude in prison camp, as noted here, may have been the profound change needed in his own life to create the works that he did.
.
Solitude has been a big part of my life and it’s refreshing to read a book noting the positives of a lifestyle based on solitude. We never need a book to tell us how to live or think but they do give us those links and stories with which we can relate.
.
Starting now to ponder which books to take on my trip!
.
Q: do you find you are more of an introvert or extrovert or more specifically what are your views on a solitary life. An optimistic view of being creative and at our best when alone or pessimistic and lonely by ourselves without a large social network.

Hay algo en tu interior que sabe cuándo estás en el centro, que sabe cuando estás bajo la luz o fuera de ella. Si sigues tu dicha, emprendes un camino que siempre estuvo ahí, esperándote, y la vida que deberías vivir es la que estás viviendo. Sigue tu dicha y no temas. Se abrirán puertas allí donde ignorabas que iban a estar. 🌿 .

I have three brothers so I grew up watching RPG-style video games (role-playing) like Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy. I loved to watch the story unfold, the hero's journey, the myth, the magic, the mavens. The battles were epic, the fight between good and evil was always palpable as the fate of their world hung in the balance. I adored the fun, the music, the color and playful innocence of their imaginary world. Recently, I got to be a part of that magic again by attending a Legend of Zelda symphony, which was amazing and it reminded me of the mythology that is still alive, that we all live, mostly unaware. Today, I invite you to see yourself as the center of your own hero's journey. What have you been called to do? If you step back and see the larger story, you'll see the demons you're battling, the mystical help that been sent along the way and the entire myth unfold before your eyes. If you haven't answered the call, it's because your vision of what your real purpose in life is isn't big enough, you haven't seen it yet. Ask for it to be revealed. In this life, you choose your own adventure. Which path will you take? Will you answer the call? Say yes to the initiation? Because it's here, and it's epic. #epic #epicinitiator #heroesjourney #josephcampbell #initiation #call #hero #journey #lifepurpose #magic #story #life #purpose #tale #fantasy #fiction #videogames #myth #mythology #adventure #calltoadventure #choice #power #powerful #inspiration #coachnyc #coaching #coach
