Some heroes are reluctant to go back to their old world after a dramatic life experience, while such a return can benefit both them and their society.
Even great mythical heroes could feel forced to conform to society’s wishes. Under this kind of pressure, it’s important to stick to your own values and do what you feel is right.
As we struggle to overcome the realities of life, myths can show us that it is often better to leave the battlefield rather than continue to fight.
Myths are full of symbols to help convey the story’s message. They shouldn’t be interpreted literally as that often only clouds our understanding.
Myths often tell of miraculous feats or spectacular failures, but their true power comes from showing the successes of ordinary mortals.
We can use art, literature and mythology as tools for personal growth as we share the emotions and tribulations of our fictional heroes.
We can get caught up in hateful ideas promoted by others while life offers much more freedom if we all accept our differences.
Life rarely turns out how we imagined it. That’s no one’s fault, not even your own. Blaming yourself or others only blocks your progress.
Myths provide a general formula for life and show that obstacles are everywhere. Use your values as a guide to stay following your ideal path.
