Sitting in the Abyss

Hero's Journey

Jami right now is sitting in the abyss. It is the hardest part of the Hero's Journey.

This is the part of the journey where you feel lost. Where the are no guarantees that answers will be found. Where you question the very nature of the journey.

It is a profoundly lonely place to be.

A lot of people can't sit there. It takes a lot courage and a faith. To sit and wait.

But it is this place where the sacred happens. Where, in an unexpected moment, there is clarity. These are Eureka Moments. In these moments our understanding of the world, our Schema, is rewired, a metamorphose of understanding that is, what Campbell called, the "Ultimate Boon". That is that godsend we are to bring back to the world to help guide others in their journey.
