Joseph Campbell: The Hero’s Path


“Where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”

–Joseph Campbell

    I was fortunate to seat in two of his lectures this was back in the early eighties,a few years before he died,because of him I understood what myth and religion have in common, it changed my life completely.
    Thank you Frederic for your great contribution.

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s
    pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more
    useful than ever before.

    I used to be curious should you ever considered changing the page layout of
    your own site? Its well written; I love what youve have got to say.
    But maybe you could a little bit more when it comes to
    content so people could connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for just having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it better?
