As were coming close to the end of term, I felt it appropriate to post a super video for you all.
From what I understand, many of you have taken the course at Avo-Bell to increase your value as you pursue your professional path. This video is a documentary based on the works of Joseph Campbell. Joseph was a philosopher and arguably the greatest mythologist of all time. He dissected and diagrammed all of the mythic stories of the world. And he found that there is only one true story told within all world stories. He called it the hero’s journey.
The hero’s journey involves three parts; separation, initiation and return. This format is woven into the very fabric of the movie industry and story telling in general and more importantly, it reflects life and human growth.
Mythology is for me, a window into our own understanding. This documentary and Joseph’s work delivers a map in the form of a cyclic pattern that gives me strength, especially when it feels like you’re the only one in the room saying ‘no’. That you’re greatest self is still hidden and that it’s worth pursuing.
One of the key messages in the video is to take risks, do what scares you, stretch yourself. Find what you love doing and do more of it. I could not agree more. I hope you enjoy it also.
