“When you see a new trail, or a footprint you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.” ~ Sioux Proverb

Mythology has been a mystical way of telling stories since the dawn of our story-telling species. It has a way of cutting through the human condition like nothing else. Often these mythological stories are so good, and their moral so strong, that a kind of ethics emerges from the material, a set of guiding principles that transcends the stories themselves and leads to values and a way of being in and looking at the world with new eyes.

For the purpose of this article, we will go on a short mythological journey through the life-death-rebirth process of the hero’s journey as it moves through different transformations and initiations. From ignorant layman to cosmic hero, and the arduous journey in between. Let’s begin.
