The Heroic Journey and the Landscape of Legend

Our lives are Stories.  A movement through the circumstances of our sacred Path.    The heroic journey to the realization of who we really are.

As we do this, we have a great adventure.  A gradual movement deeper and deeper into the powers and talents waiting to be discovered inside of our consciousness.

Many of us are familiar with the idea of the heroic journey, presented by the famed scholar Joseph Campbell and his visionary works.  We have come to see a part of the underlying pattern of our lives.  To see the context in which our Path unfolds as part of a beautiful progression of living myth.

Such is the journey we share, making our way to the new paradigm of human evolution.

We see the Path.  Yet what does the Path move through? What is the nature of the patterns that define our lives? The traditions, the mythologies, the many ways in which we walk that heroic journey? What is the nature of the synchronicities that link our Paths together?

Here, we discover the landscape of myth, the canvas upon which our Path is drawn.

The Path and the Land


Each of us has a sacred Path.  Our journey through the experience of being human.  Such is the beautiful timeline of our Story, the movement through the experiences of our lives.  It is on this sacred Path that we embark upon our Quest, to make the noble journey from ignorance to the realizastion of who and what we really are.

In the context of the Mythica, all things occur along our sacred Path. Our walk through the heroic journey of our life along the timeline of our experiences.

As we walk along our sacred path, we move through many landscapes.  Many different aspects of the Land.  Our journey takes us through many elemental realms, natural conditions which define the shape of our journey.

We can find ourselves crossing over beautiful lakes filled with Water, or on the edges of great mountains of Earth, through cities of brick & mortar to flights through the very air itself.

Over the course of our journey, we move through many different forms of terrain.  From forests to cities, oceans to mountains, and across the many experiences of our lives.  As we travel our way, we live within an entire landscape that is larger than our single footsteps, a much bigger thing that gives context to our path.  Simply put, if there were no forest, there would no path.

Yet what is the nature of that forest, that ocean, that trail? What is it’s relationship to our personal transformation? How does it relate to our movement towards a new reality?

In essence, what is the nature of the LAND? 

Yet what is the nature of that forest, that ocean, that trail? What is it’s relationship to our unfoldment?

What is the substance of the forest? Of the temple? Of the city and the ocean? How do we come to appreciate the Land on which we walk the Path?

For this, we must make the journey deeper into ourself.  To learn to appreciate the subtleties of vibration, the Abundance and Grace that lay just beneath the surface of our awareness.  We must come to understand the nature of the Path and the Land.
