Carl Jung discussed on The Sacred Heart of the Warrior


New dimension, all these doors to myself open that I didn't even know were over there. And in those moments, I walked into this is all metaphorically speaking, but I walked into rooms in my heart that I didn't know existed. And I discovered that there was things written on the wall that I wanted for myself that I couldn't I couldn't place where these desires came from. And one of those desires was to travel the world. I didn't grow up traveling at all. It wasn't part of my family. It wasn't something that I felt the lack of certainly, but suddenly I discovered this desire to travel the world within myself and really, and as part of that journey, have something to give, not just to go and see the world as to take it all in. I don't like, I don't like this respecting the word tourists because I respect anyone who leaves their home to travel for any reason. So I don't want to speak ill of us because many of them are very brave in their own way. But I wanted something to give. And that introduced me to this notion that inside myself, there was something I couldn't articulate it, but something was lacking. Something was lacking. So a couple of years later, but now about 18 months later, I was back in college. I was a college student. I did my startup, and I'm finished that up and went back to school. And I took a class on for the first time on Carl Jung. And that was a beautiful introduction to the power of myth. And the way that myth can speak specifically to us as men. And there was a moment where the professor was talking about how you can look at The Lord of the Rings series of movies, which were coming out of the time as this wonderful myth about men and masculinity and all the different faces of masculinity from the warrior to the wizard to the hobbits and I was like, oh my gosh, all of these things live within me.
