In Hero with a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell showed that the prototypical hero myth begins when the hero breaks free of the past to set off on a bold adventure. Campbell called this phase of the hero story "departure."
This is the jumping-off point. Heroes distinguish themselves from everyone else by heeding the call to adventure and jumping in with both feet. They choose to sacrifice safety, security, and stability in pursuit of the ultimate reward.
For me, that reward is inspiration. This is not simply about being creative. Inspiration holds the key to passion, fulfillment, unconditional love, and spiritual awakening. And the point of departure lies in the answer to this very simple question: How many sources of creativity are there in the universe?
You may doubt that one question can make such a difference. But it does! When you watch the video above, you will understand why that is.
