The Hero’s Journey: Here I Am!
Into our Ordinary World there comes a disruption. It might be a sudden, personal loss, the realization that we are unhappy or unfulfilled, or even a crisis that affects our larger world. For our Wayshower, Jesus, it was his experience in the Temple when he was twelve (Luke 2:41-52). For us, as for Jesus, times like these remind us that the human spirit is designed to grow, to expand, to reach for the boundless, limitless nature of the Divine Self that we truly are. This disruption of ordinary life is the Call to Adventure that sets us off on our Hero’s Journey. The answer to that Call is “Here I Am!”
