You are living out your own myth each and every day.
It determines how you process life as it happens to you – the decisions you take, the emotions you experience and the behaviour you exhibit.
Often, you will be processing life through the cultural, societal, political and familial myths that have grown around you without you noticing.
As you begin your journey to wholeness (your quest for the true self) you must first learn how to tune into the source of your personal mythology – your unconscious.
The next step is to learn how to interpret its language – the messages spoken to you in the dreams you dream, the art you make and the signs and symbols you collect.
When you can understand this mythical language (that of the psyche, itself) your connection with the greatest mystery of all (your very existence) will deepen.
From this state, you become truly empowered and will discover that the choices you make are grounded in true psychological freedom.
The evolution of your personal mythology requires practice (it’s why humans developed ritual.)
This is why I do the work that I do. To tune in, to interpret and to practice.
It has always been the prime function of mythology and rite to supply the symbols that move the human spirit forward. ~ Joseph Campbell
What myth are you choosing to live?
Have you downloaded your free guide to creating your own Found Inspirations practice? It’s so quick and easy, anyone can do it anywhere. But it’s powerful, too – and an ideal way to begin art journaling and get those creative juices flowing!
@juliegibbons Your technique definitely resonates with me. It came right at a time when I was searching for a daily practice, too. Thanks!
