Speaking of being human, this is the Hero’s Journey. It’s a common story in almost every world mythology that describes the path of hero from a humble person living their ordinary life in their ordinary world to someone who conquers adversity from within and without and becomes the biggest, wisest, strongest version of themselves.
The Hero is Called to Adventure. They’re called to see the world in a way that they can’t unsee. Sometimes the door is slammed behind them, sometimes the pull forward comes from within. At this point the budding hero Meets their Mentor – someone or something that opens their eyes to a power they hadn’t imagined they could wield. This mentor starts them on their journey, but they’re not there to accompany the Hero the whole way. They then embark on a Road of Trials – to try, to fail, to get up, to learn. They Become the Hero. Stronger, wiser, bolder. At this point, they can begin their Return home. They’ve mastered what they needed to learn, and can be what their home needs of them – the Master of Two Worlds.
