When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.
– Joseph Campbell
And don’t you just love being around people who have done this? Their lack of pettiness, worry, arrogance, and self-absorption is completely life-giving!
I want to be that kind of person. Don’t you?
Push off. Let go of your safe harbor. Not just for adventure…but for those who are waiting for you to be their hero.
(Besides inspiring George Lucas to write Star Wars and serving as the inspiration for Yoda, Campbell lived a full-to-the-brim life, teaching this concept of reckless abandonment to our bliss, our purpose, and our own hero journey. What a difference he made!)
