Week 17 HJ
I’m the Hero?
How easy is it to live in denial…
Denial that I am in control of my life. Denial that I possess the power to create ANYTHING I desire. Denial that I am God’s greatest miracle. Denial that I already possess EVERYTHING I need to create my ideal life. Denial that I can ONLY control myself and my actions. Denial that I AM the hero in the Hero’s Journey of MY LIFE.
Before denial came awareness. Only recently have I even entertained the ideas above on a conscious level and to be quite honest most of these were beyond my comprehension. While I’ve had a lot of success in my life and I am known for stepping out of my comfort zone, deep down I was PARALYZED by the ideas that suggested I could really create my future.
I was introduced to the Hero’s journey earlier in the MKE, and I understood the progression and could identify the HJ in most stories. Star Wars, the Matrix, and Lord of the Rings were some of the obvious.
There’s a call to an adventure which is refused at first. Next there is an event which causes the hero to forge into the unknown where they are “guided” by one or more helpers until they reach a point of abyss.
Once their old identity is released, (death) the hero emerges, transformed. This new awakening is a realization that we are all connected, and the hero returns as a changed person who gives their gift to be of service to the universe.
I get it, but how could it be that I AM THE HERO?
It’s obvious now, it’s MY life and MY story. If I am capable of oneness with the infinite power and I can control my thoughts and actions, then I can write my story and I am the hero! BAM! It’s like, really? Could it really be that simple to just believe? Yes, I believe it is.
Now that I have accepted that I am in control and that I have the power, I can see evidence that I have been doing this all along in my life. Some of the chapters in my life have been those when I have accepted the Hero’s Journey and others were times when I have not. I can see them and now as I thank myself and the universe for my past lessons and blessings I am free to create the rest of my story the way that I wish.
Can anyone say, EMPOWERING?!
Bless you God, my family, my friends, my enemies, and everyone involved with the MKE for your roles in my story… Just wait for the rest of my book!
