Your Life is Not a Hero's Journey Episode 2
Video from LSOO
"Why are stories so purposefully structured whereas our reality is so often messy and chaotic? Why do characters have clear transformative arcs when our identities and personal journeys are so much more complex than that? It's questions like these, and their implications that will be explored in this new series on stories vs. reality. In this second episode, I’ll be examining the history of the heroic adventure, and the implications of projecting the hero’s journey on our own lives." from video introduction
This excellent video from LSOO discusses our obsession with fame through social media and other outlets. The fact is our life is not a hero's journey as presented by the world. Fame as we see it here is pride and selfish ambition. A sin that seems to cling to us all our lives. How do we put it to rest? Listen to this video and gain some perspective. Then put down social media and pick up your Bible, pray and repent. That will be the start.
