Soria Moria by Theodor Kittelsen, 1899

The journey of the hero is about the courage to seek the depths; the image of creative rebirth; the eternal cycle of change within us; the uncanny discovery that the seeker is the mystery which the seeker seeks to know. The hero journey is a symbol that binds, in the original sense of the word, two distant ideas, the spiritual quest of the ancients with the modern search for identity, always the one, shape-shifting yet marvelously constant story that we find.

      • Hi Federic! I think it speaks of how our experience in life isn’t so much about finding answers as it is about finding questions and mysteries. It takes courage to face those questions, and that is how we find meaning. The process is more important than the end result. Thanks for reading and questioning!
