The Labyrinth is Thoroughly Known

When we say, “Yes” more in our lives, we are saying, “Yes” to adventure. Life is an adventure. What is adventure, but entering into the unknown? But isn’t life a great big fat unknown? None of us knows (for sure) what is to happen next–in the next 5 minutes, hours or days. We all know this, but sometimes, it is easy to forget…

Read here the words of Joseph Campbell. I find them very inspiring and true. This is from his book “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”. This is not an easy read, but is worth the effort. This book has a way of changing lives.

Here is the quote:

We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us — the labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and 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 had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.

Joseph Campbell
