"I thought of the of of joseph campbell type way this sort of common pairing of the warrior and the priest in the that we need a shame shaming but we need his arjuna for krishna. Say i thought about the necessity and the of speaking somewhat literally the necessities subjugation. The the in the name of islam that if you if the left brain is not subjugate if the mckay mechanistic materialistic mentality takes over. False idols will rise. I thought of the necessity for kind of of a sort of poorest nurse between these two spaces and own integrity and integration like the idea of like integration with the shadow left for completion in the in things like that we the unconscious material needs to be incorporated to behold. And i heard in what you were saying from your own era of expertise the of the movements of other disciplines accurate here the teams on other descriptions of according to what you said earlier kind of potentially eggs over common common a common reality so i i suppose what you're saying that in spite of potentially limitless difference in limitless variation and are perhaps our room overly assertive inclination to for taxonomy and the associated prejudiced that might create or at least opposition that could create that there is a a an obvious requirement for plainly evolved from out native survive. Full this mechanistic interpretation of reality but the possibly when people say patriarchy and stuff what they pabst possibly what could be meant is that the the the dominion the biases of this dominion have excluded the mystery and like you know i wouldn't approach it from agenda perspective anyway because that's just it's not my experience but like i would approach it from kind of That we have decentralized the world. We're like that when when we revere nightjar and acknowledged that they some things of unknowable that we can somehow that we are haunted by something in nature that we can never fully own as you save cannot fully be pinned down the it creates reverence and that we have a numerous experience of reality as opposed to mechanistic resource base.

I remember the excitement of the missionaries that were in dr congo. When you went over there with the team within pastor sharon and they'd never had anyone document with video of the work that they were doing out in the bush but also in the kinshasa in the city with the women at risk right. Yeah one of the most memorable shots that you took that. I think they were astounded. By was in you. Use your drone technique and you had the team going down that that big river in the congo and the jungle but you have to aerial view. That was amazing. That's fun yeah so you had just completed a trip. To thailand i think it was with international ministries doing similar work capturing for promotional purposes. The work of these missionaries and and they're doing a lot of social justice work. How would you feel about that well. That's very interesting. As i was in my filming to work of missionary kimbro. She ran the clinic for children with developmental diseases. Very moving to you. Yeah the provide like were down syndrome or learning disability physical therapy speech therapy and then you finish your work and you flew back home to culver city out out here right.

"joseph campbell" Discussed on What Healthy Couples Know That You Don't
"Honesty is very hard to come by in a world where too many people are enchanted by conspiracy. Theories and lies are swallowed whole honesty. Means looking at yourself with some level of self awareness you have to know when to have true remorse and to recognize your own failings which i describe in depth in episode seventy. Three honesty is about reality. Love is about the fantasy of being together. So let's take one all to ordinary example. Your sex life has disappeared and neither of you has addressed it then. Monse evolve in two years. If there is out loud agreement that celibacy is the new norm. Okay but the reality of living without the best free resource for pleasure and never discussing the issues is not okay. There are many examples of silence about important hard things that slowly create a grand canyon of distance instead of intimacy intimacy bills on sharing who we really are and when we disagree it is important to know about instead of pretending. It's okay when it's not silence creates distance. Honesty creates closeness. You can pretend you aren't sharing so you don't hurt the other person which is morally bankrupt short term thinking morally bankrupt. Because you are really protecting you. Not the other person. Long term thinking is to understand the more complex idea that it is only through true that you stop feeding the distance between the two of you make no mistake about it. Relationships are work. Everybody is wired different differently. Just think about the last movie or book. You recommended this. Someone else didn't appreciate. It's how we manage respect for the differences that makes or breaks a relationship even with parenting. That can be true in teenage years. Kids are exploring how they are different. And if you have an obedient team now they may end up far more resentful later testing boundaries. Finding out who they are different from us is what all that painful struggling is about. This is why often say. Respect is more important than love in relationships. respect also leaves room to not like the differences. It bothered me so much. My husband did not read books when we started out and now he's shifted to become a reader. But not because i nagged or whined about it which of course i did. It was a real values collision for me. That reading was not important while it was such a refuge for me. It's values that we collide over. The most respect for the differences is crucial for relationships to work when a decision is important for a couple that disagree respect and the ability to see and try to understand. Their point of view really does matter what matters is softening the hard edges of disagreement and there is only one way to accomplish that. Be willing to talk and talk and talk and talk through the differences. It's the first thing you can do to improve. If the question is should we have kids. It might take a hundred and fifty conversations. Talking is the only way to soften the differences between you. The second thing you can do is be curious. Instead of critical about the differences. Critical illness harnes. The goal again to achieve more respect is to soften hard edges of differences. Too many partners do not recognize the walls. They build by being critical. Good couples. therapy helps you learn more and to be more curious about the differences. Why is love work. you may ask yourself. Joseph campbell described marriage as an ordeal. The beginnings of law are delicious. But it's not the real substance of a relationship..

We've just been really fortunate to just the on a ton of lists, and that's because of the guests. These are folks who have expertise in a particular area of business and they join me for a conversation little. Chat. Where they share that expertise with all of you. That way you can get the information age get connected to these folks and you can do better things in your. Business. Today is no different. My guest today is Chris Yoga. Christmas the founder. CEO of Yoga Company. Chris focuses on helping people in the organizations they belong to pave the road to a more Utopian world. He empowers heroic organizations to build a champion, those styles using their most powerful assets, their web presence. Chris an expert in Web design accessibility. Digital Marketing. Company culture and Social Responsibility. His Gold for HIMSELF THOSE HE AIDS is to be driven by a purpose beyond Prophet Excel much for joining me today Chris. From Yoga. I am thrilled to have you now I would love it. If you would explain to the listeners, why use say that our web presence is our most powerful asset? It's the one. Then you have that's speak can speak to everyone similtaneously knocker taking phone calls. If you're at a meeting a conference, if you're doing sales inbound sales, your, you've always got some limiting. The chemical equation of your success that is install eggs out whereas your web presence is. Similarities available to everybody and is also worldwide so. Used to have local footprint canals international footprint. On it. Okay. So He said in your bio that you are looking to these organizations pave or. Pave. The way toward a more Utopian world which I love that purpose at but understand how my web presence makes the world a better place. So. It starts with thinking about the organization itself. So the folks that we help tend to all into one two buckets, it's people who know and already calculate the type of impact they wanna half, and then there's those organizations aspire to have a positive don't really quite know either what it is or exactly how to accomplish it and It's interesting because let me see what persons can help boost in the latter case with relation that already knows the impact that wants to have. It's a matter of execution the more fun one in the one that might be worth likable. Your listeners is the wonderful renovations that are still trying to figure out exactly what they want that to look like, and that is where I think about the value of the web presents not only as your marketing tool, a communication tool, a chance to interact with clients, but there's also whenever you go through that process of rebranding redesigning a website specifically. There's a window. Right there's a certain amount of almost like vision boarding that happens where. I kind of figured whenever you start to plant that flag as renovation. It's almost like somebody who stopped smoking where they're like, Hey, I stopped smoking and it's like okay well for how long for four hours. But you got. The same thing with with the website whenever you say we are organization that does these things. Maybe that only lasts. You know it's been four hours since you started that put that out there and it starts to become true and the way that we find it tends to really impact organizations with Joseph Campbell's Hero's journey. Now I'm not okay good deal. So just the Campbell, an amazing offer this book called out hero with basis where he breaks down all of these tales from the Odyssey the end all the way up to storm wars wizard of Oz Harry Potter all of the movies stories you likely love follow the Hero's journey, which is that the hero goes through these kind of same twelve steps and it starts with. You know the call to action understanding. There's a need for change not really wanting to address it of being reluctant going through it as a path of self transformation with happens and that sell transformations what enables bureau to go out and. which the beast find the Elixir, whatever the case might be, and then better impact their community or Kasa characters around them, and then ultimately transformed the world, and what we find is when you go through a brand update or web transformation, the right way and with that kind of attention -ality, it serves as that vision board that is essentially like a crucible cell transformation. So you start to change yourself your team sources st like this is how we impact the world. Now I kinda have something uncrowded show Hama data show my spouse. I'm proud to show my the work I do does this kind of impact? So it's not just about the dollars and cents it's about making impacts. And now I'm a little bit more excited to tell that story people that land on our website. Begin to hear that story. It allows us to transform ourselves before we can then transplant relationships we have with our clients ultimately grow hopefully or more clients and a broader community, and then subsequently through the were affects we all have a world create a better world starts I believe with that what presence that I can happen food multitude of levels but I think one of the most important is being able to find that kind of vision and crucible assault transformation were.
Freedom from the Prison of Limiting Beliefs
"Nama stay and welcome my friends. Joseph Campbell, who most of you have heard of described all religions as starting with one word that all came out of one word and the word was help. And we humans perceive our mortality. We perceive how everything's changing and in the deepest ways it's really out of our hands. So we're looking for something that can protect us that can guide US and help us make it through and so that deep increases really what will give us refuge In the face of an uncertain. World. A reading that I've always liked goes like this. It says this life is a test. It is only test. If it had been an actual life, you would've received further instructions on where to go and what to do remember this life is only a test. I remember when I first heard this and it really struck a chord and and I feel who can really sense in our current times so much as up for grabs, the coronavirus and Konami and really the rights of vulnerable populations democracy and our earth is in distress. So. The degree of uncertainty is really spiked and we can sense how with this little security were all trying to sense how to navigate. What's the best guidance on how to proceed? So if we look closely, we can see the ways that we take refuge. For many I we take refuge in that online rabbit hole that we fall into for incredible stretches of time that trance we take refuge in staying busy we try to control the people around us. It might be through food or drugs or alcohol or sleep that were trying to take care of ourselves. And, this is the other side and away for many there's increase refuge in carrying relationships in and really being close with others and connecting with others and in meditation many people have started and deepen their practice refuge in nature refuge in serving others. In my book says I think two thousand twelve that I that it got published true refuge. I looked at how we react to life's basic insecurity to that that sense of help you know how what we take refuge in really varies and that I distinguished between the refuges that. Serve to wake up our hearts and minds and those that are kind of substitute that give temporary maybe a hit of relief. But in a way, keep us trapped and I called the latter false refuge is not because they're bad. But really because they keep us from a pathway that really allows. True. Healing and freedom. So tonight, I'd like to reflect on. The primary mode of. False refuge that underlies other false refugees and keep so many of us trapped and that's Our fear based stories and beliefs. And when we're insecure, how we even grasp more tightly to those fear beliefs, those limiting beliefs and they turn us against ourselves against others, they keep a separate. Select look at this together, and then how are meditation practices can? Free us from that that prison. Of limiting beliefs. And I WANNA dedicate this class to our beloved Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Who helped our entire society wake up from stories? About Limited worth are limited value. How she woke us up in a way that really directly extended to honoring the rights of all being she focused on women and many oppressed populations. Because her basic caring she she just basically honored the intrinsic value of all. And if we look at our limiting beliefs. That's what they don't. Do they forget that so We can't transform our society and we can't Hiller free ourselves if we don't exam and an undue are limiting stories are fear based believes. They're the root of suffering.

"That's that's another good question. So there's two things that right one is. you you WANNA try to align Out there knows very difficult to do, but I was doing commercials for many years and I really really enjoyed it. So even if it was a crap commercial, I enjoyed the process of filmmaking so much that to me was kind of the same like I was making money and I was doing something I love and I was always grateful for that. But now my career shifted right. I'm doing films now and zero commercials. So is is difficult to make money doing films. You have to spend a lot of money not bringing any incoming for year or more than sell that film. Feast and famine thing it gets it gets very stressful. And right now like just just last week. There was a friend of mine is a wardrobe stylist who said? Hey I need to shoot this fashion model and this line of clothing. And I was like, Oh, I got. That's exactly what I've been looking for. I'm going to do this for no money and for no other reason than the fun of it. and. We just went down to Venice Beach Cohen Save, of course. And shot a bunch of incredible images of this. Dress said this little girl was wearing a it was so much fun and that got the juices flowing again. And I sat down and I wrote a bunch of new scenes. This film I'm working on and I would not have done that if I didn't take this creative pause and go do something just purely for the joy of doing it. What I always find that some of my best ideas for my work that I get paid for comes from work that I do just for the sake of doing it. Roommate was like, why are you making foam? You're spending copious amounts of time on it and I'm like I just fun. I. Said Tell You what I was like the crazy thing is I'm learning so much I. Because I took ten years of what I've learned from this show and applied it to something that had nothing to do with this you know from writing books all that, and it was just a blast in never had so much fun putting a project together. amaz-. It's really amazing. How that works I. Think it's I think it's good for anyone listening to this dude is suggest. Maybe, make it a practice or exercising say to yourself. Well, Kim, what is the little fun thing that I just WanNa do for nothing else of the fun of it brings me joy in my zone..

"Have to do something right to connect to to keep themselves busy and so were going back to the basics like connecting on zoom with people that they would never do that with. what's what's what's important to you like reassessing your? Your priorities was just a a major thing in I saw it happening in my neighborhood in my community on a massive scale and it was really amazing. Right. But the funny thing is we're now you know on the other side of that you being l. a. where we've kind of had a boiling point and where you know like what we had hoped would be kind of a reassessment what matters my roommate amendments described this whole experience as a long over A. Long overdue evolution in human consciousness and yet. the way we're coming out of this right now at least at this moment while recording this is is almost terrifying to me like I've never seen anything in my life, right? So I went through the Rodney King riots here in Venice Beach. And and two days ago I walked down the block from my house and I followed a group of protesters with my camera and shot some images that were pretty disturbing. I don't really have a conclusion for yet like I. Don't. I, don't want it start attaching meaning to it quite yet. But overall. It definitely felt like Oh my God where everyone's like reprioritizing and now we're going. There's another crisis to distract US right. I think maybe if you look back at history at least recent history, now we went through the sixties. which were even more violent than what's happening now. And everybody survived but. But the question is..
"joseph campbell" Discussed on The Unmistakable Creative Podcast
"How should I Guess. Let's start start at the beginning because I mean it's such like you said, it's such a complicated concept when you open the book, but you took it and put it into film to make understand it a bit better. So let's just start you know a at the core principles and we can kind of dive into each one and then I'll basket whatever questions I have because I think that. Each one of these things I think that we can all tie it back to life experience very easily. saw so I'll start there right. So I think for me the great thing about. Joseph Campbell's definition of the hero's journey is that. Although, he studied stories in mythology and religion and really discovered this. Common pattern that the hero goes off on this journey and returns and no matter what the time period or the culture is heroes seem to be taking the same journey. And and that was very interesting to him and what really caught me about it was he he was not the first person to see that, but he was the first person to related to living a human life. And that to me. Just grabbed me. Oh my God, you mean I'm. A hero that's taking the same journey as. Prometheus or or any biblical story or Star Wars you know you name the story and? I was all of a sudden seeing myself as. A hero on that metaphorical journey. But in my real life, it's not a bad for it's my life. I really just love that idea and it turns out to be true. Right might really turns out to be especially when when you are doing anything creative. or even not creative, just living life. That, you go through the stages at. The heroes that you see on screen go through and life is difficult and you need to find. Courage skills to overcome those difficulties I'm to discover. Greater powers in yourself. So to me, I, think one of the things that's interesting. I've talked to people. You know ever went friend air-quality Giri said you know One said that all changes preceded by crisis, which is a fitting thing to say considering the crisis that we're in right now and I. Always wondered if you know if that's the case and you don't have a crisis, what do you do because you're right it seems like for some reason, people get comfortable in a notice that pretty unanimously across the board. It's either. Sort of crazy inciting incident some rock bottom moment or something that really challenges somebody's life experience that causes them to make a massive shift. Is it possible to bring about those significant changes without the inciting incident? That, we're talking about this earlier. I personally think it is possible. But if you take a large group of people, a very small percentage will actually be able to do that on an intellectual level in just read a book and say Oh my God. I need to change my thoughts, my habits, and then just go do it the. That's very, very rare in my experience you really need to have a what Campbell would call a wake call right and so if the classic example starwars and in that scene where Luke actually decides after having resisted. To go on this journey, he's got no choice is village has been burnt down in his caretakers have been a murder. The was he gonNa do now you got no choice and life often acts.

"Did you make about how you're gonNa live your life going forward based on having lost? Your Wife. I feel like. I feel like number one is that. We're married for twenty five years and. was just amazing human being. And I try to take the best parts of her and incorporate that into myself the I intentionally took. Her strengths and try to use them in my daily life as a practice. And then. Yeah. I. Think I think beyond that it's difficult because it's still raw. Me So I try to I try to make that a practice but bill but other than that. It's still very raw. Of mystery quite a bit now. And Feel free to say no like if asked question, we can edit it out but. I mean, how does it change your vision for your future? And if you're not comfortable. Until. Toiling, it relates back to the movie that I mean finding Joe is that. It. Truly shines a light holes into sharp relief, your own mortality in fact that you have very little time on this planet and so be as a result as a direct result of her passing I think I've also said to myself in fact I know I have very consciously. There's only so much time. What do you WANNA do? Let's get that done. Here. Whatever it is. There's no excuse. There's no tomorrow. Will get every day pursue that thing until you die because of the you'll be dead. So. What's funny is Near you can have this conversation, people can listen to it can go read books like Bernie Wears regrets of the dying. We can watch movies and I think that there's a huge difference between. Understanding something like this intellectually and understanding it in the way that you have emotionally because your a person who is much more likely to take action on it whereas for so many of us, those things are just platitudes. How do you bridge that gap? It's true I. Don't think don't think there's bridging that gap for most people I think. I think there is no bridging that gap if you can't experience it in in a way that's. That's experiential like if you don't actually instant as opposed to intellectualize it. Your behaviors not gonNA shift or mid-may for some people that actually may but I would say for the vast majority of people. you need those experiences, which is why alcoholics need to hit rock bottom before something happens. Right you need that experience. Before you take action or changes your behavior. Let's talk about Joseph Cambell. You know, I. Just the other day on Sunday I had a college student emailed me saying that you know yes, the question, how do you find the courage to pursue your ideas and I thought? Okay. Well, let's talk by Joseph Cambell because that probably is really a relevant question to the work of Campbell I know that from you know having read, you know the writer's journey, which is basically based on some of that as well as a hero thousand faces but what led you to. Make film about this. Okay. So this this film I feel like was.
"joseph campbell" Discussed on The Unmistakable Creative Podcast
"Also at the same time was was a Joseph Campbell and bill moyers that interview came out. It was kind of right then in there that I went. This. What I'm GONNA do for the rest of my life. I'm a filmmaker. That's what I do. That's what I'm going to do. This is it and. That was like. You know the mid. Eighties. and has ended and that's where I've been ever since it's been really amazing. Why do you think that you discovered that? So early in life and so many people don't and do you think. It takes LSD for us to companies, Cockerill. Everybody needs to take LSD at an early age. Parenting are like Frill we're encouraging Don't got that. It doesn't really matter I feel like. I actually don't know but I did know that I've always had something very there's been something very burning me. That's great. If if it wasn't filmmaking, it would have been something else creative just feels like. I knew an early age that I was meant to do something in the creative field. I just didn't know what it was in what I came across the idea of filmmakers blended all these things together music and art and film and storytelling, and it was just it just spoke to me in a way that. it was it was too powerful to not say yes to right now. So the funny thing is I've been doing a lot of research you know both. From reading as well as experimenting on Psychedelics just. To understand why they produce these sort of states of consciousness and I think that you know the narrative around Psychedelic has changed fundamentally over the last probably year or two particularly with you know Michael Pollen's book. You know how to change your mind work that people like Steven. Kotler. Doing you know at the flurry collective in terms of EV- accessing these higher states of consciousness. Why is it that we have to able to reach you know these higher states of consciousness for breakthroughs like the one you had whether it even as a writer I know for a fact that there's a big difference between sitting down to work on task in a sort of mundane thing or one where I'm totally in flow and I've just in the zone for three hours. The work that comes out is very different Why is that? You know like like it's because when you are. It's like when you walk around in reality you're in the forest but when you have those moments of he experience your above the trees.
"joseph campbell" Discussed on The Unmistakable Creative Podcast
"Had No he he didn't mind it but but. He didn't like it either. What do you think that is I don't my dad minds it but I think it's not that he doesn't like it. I think he just doesn't get it. Yeah. He didn't I think later in life he got it. But early on, he saw the path success as his own path to success, which is you go to college you get a degree. And you find some success in whatever field that is, and that's that was the path he took, and so he just projected that on me. Do you have siblings, and if so did their career trajectories turn out really differently did your parents different advice. Now he might my brother he works in in it he manages pretty. Big. What do you call him? You call the memory banks, right? So apple and Google and all the big companies have run these giant memory farms and he manages those. So what in the world lead you into film making is one thing that I think is fascinating about this sort of creative path particularly whether it's doing, you know what I've done is an author whether it's what you do as a filmmaker is unlike. Becoming a doctor, the steps aren't clearly laid out in front of you. It's like well, you know you could take this class or do this major might lead you there or it might lead you where it's like you know the film school graduate becomes an investment banker or vice versa You. What happened that led you to to where you're at today it's is it's a it's an interesting origin story so. a combination of things. One is I knew creative. To is. The work of Joseph Campbell and three is LSD. So just to just to mix that. All bright on my. I heard about Joseph Cambell through a A. Teacher right but really not so much more than the phrase follow your bliss and during my high school graduation instead of going to graduation my friend and I decided it'd be a good idea to drop LSD and drive around Hollywood. Okay, you gotTa tell us about that whole thing in much more detail. Okay. So basically, we we get in his truck and we go. We're not we're not doing this. This is bullshit. I need says I have some acid lipsticks massive? Okay. Let's do that. So we take some acid any goes oh, by the way, I have to stop at the. Local community college to. To Register for classes and I'm saying, wait what do you have a mindful of of LSD were not going to be go to a place way what are you? What are you talking about? So we drive to Pasadena City College and he's standing in line to register for classes and the walls are melting I'm freaking out. We we get through that experience and we go to go to Hollywood and we part. Just coincidentally in front of the directors guild of America. And we get out of the car and the building is speaking to me like the building is literally like. Forming. Is and it's talking to me in some kind of weird emotional language and I was like Oh. My God I. Think. There's something here.

"Thanks so much for taking the time to join us. Thank you for having me. It is my pleasure to have you here. So I actually was introduced to you by way of mutual friend. Akira Chan who was an amazing human being He told me about the work that you've done in film and and the work that you've done finding Joel all of which we will get into up but I gonNA. Start. With what I think is very relevant question given the nature of your work and the film it you said, and that is what religious or spiritual beliefs were you brought up with and how did that end up impacting your life? That's a really good question I was brought up by physicist as my father is a scientist and my mother who has A. my my my father's of Germany said. He's Caucasian and my mother is Japanese. And she was an artist and neither one of them had A. Religious or spiritual practices in back. My father was militantly atheist. But there. I don't know how to describe their ethos is really rubbed off on me. So you know my my father being scientists, my mother being an artist. was really what shaped my spiritual beliefs actually. So. One how did that impact you later in adult life but more importantly like you've you know Japanese mother German father look what parts of their culture did they infusing you growing up and what parts of it did they have to let go of like what parts of it did you fight because I mean to some degree you've had the experience of growing up with. Immigrant. Parent. Let's say, well, that's that's good. Questions all over the map actually So so earlier life. I, really struggled with my mother being Japanese were picked on quite a bit. Racially. Because of that and that that define me quite a bit actually. those incidences those traumatic experiences in life after having done some deep work around those really defined who I was. You know they controlled by behaviors in many ways some sometimes for the good really made me. Strive to overachiever. To compensate for that. Is it it worked out well, but carrying around a lot of baggage as a result of it and in later life. and. And it's really really funny how it works out. Right? It's. It's. It's ironic how the thing that you hated the most is your child is your resume greatest gift and I feel like embracing that part of me part of my mother, which is very creative and Japanese, and she's an immigration had to fight for.

"So the hero goes for something. He doesn't just go along for the ride. He's not a mere adventure. Well, serendipitous adventure can take place also. You know what? The word serendipity comes from comes from the Sanskrit Sarah? Three The aisle of Silk, which was a former. Formerly, the name of Ceylon. It's a story about a family that just rambling on its way to see John and all these adventures take place. So you can have the serendipitous adventure as well. Is the adventurer who takes that kind of trip. Hero in the. Is Ready for it. This is a very interesting thing about these mythological themes that in the achievement of the hero is one that he is ready for and it's really a manifestation of his character. And amusing the way in which the landscape and the conditions of the environment. Match the readiness of the hero the adventure that he's ready for is one that he gets. Look I ate in this for your revolution then. For you princess, I expect to be well paid the mercenary. Solo. Begins as. As a mercenary and ends up as a he wrote. He was a very practical guy A.

The adventure evoked a quality of character that he had known he possessed. View. He thinks he's a Negro SC. and. That's a very lovable kind of human being I. think There are a lots of them functioning beautifully in the world. They think they're working for themselves very Paktika and all, but there's something else pushing him. What did you think about the scene in the bar? That's my favorite not only in this piece but many many pieces I've ever seen. Well where you are is on the edge are about to embark into the outlying spaces. And real adventure real offensive. This is the jumping off place and there is where you meet people who've been out there. They run the machines that go out there and you haven't been there reminds me a little bit in Robert Louis Stevenson's treasure island that atmosphere before you start off the adventure in a seaport and there's old salts seaman who've been on the sea and they that's their world and do these are the space people also? Bad. Feeling about this. Off. My favorite scene was when they were in the. Garbage compactor and the walls were closing in. I thought that's like the belly of the whale that Joe is what it is. Yeah. That's where they were. Down, in the belly of the whale, what's the mythological significant for the belly? The descent into the dock. Joanna in the whale I mean that's that's a standard Motif of going into the whale's belly coming out again, why must the hero do that? The whale represents the personification you might say of all, that is in the unconscious. In reading these things psychologically. Water is the unconscious. The creature in the water would be the dynamic of the unconscious, which is dangerous and powerful. and has to be a controlled by consciousness. The first stage in the. Hero adventure when he starts off on an adventure is leaving the realm of light which e controls knows about and moving toward the the threshold, and it's at the threshold that the monster of the this comes to meet him. and. Then there are two or three results one the hero is cut to pieces and descends into the abyss. In fragments to be resurrected. or He may kill the dragon power. Siegfried. Does when he kills the Dragon. But. Then he takes the dragon blood. I say he has to assimilate that are. And when Siegfried has killed dragon I tasted the blood, his the song of nature. He has transcended his humanity you know and. Re associated himself with the powers of nature which all the power of a life from which I'm mind removes us. You. See this thing up here. This consciousness thinks it's running the shop. It's a secondary Oregon. It's a secondary Oregon of a total human being and it must not put itself in control. It must submit and serve the humanity of the body. Weight. Training when it does put itself in control you get this fodder van who's going over. To the intellectual side. If you only knew Paulo. Isn't thing in than living in terms of humanity, he's living in terms of a system. And this is the threat to our lives. We often face it. We all operate. In our society. In relation to assist them. Now is the system going to each up. and. Relieve you of your humanity are are you going to be able to use the system to human purposes with the hero with a thousand faces help us to answer that question? About how to change the system so that we are not serving it I don't think it would help you to change the system, but it would help you to live in the system as a human being. By doing what well like Luke skywalker not going over but resisting it's it's. Impersonal claims.

"Joseph Campbell believe that everything begins with the story. So we begin this series with Joseph Cambell with one of his favorites he was in Japan for a conference religion and he overheard another American delegate a social philosopher from New York say to a Shinto priest. We've been now to a good mini ceremonies and if seeing quite a few of your shrines but I don't get your ideology, I don't get you a theology. The Japanese paused as though in deep thought and then slowly shook his head I. Think we don't have ideology. He said, we don't have theology we dance. Campbell could have said it of his own life when he died in one, thousand, nine, hundred, the age of eighty three he was considered one of the world's foremost authorities on mythology the stories and legends Toba Human Beings through the ages to explain the universe and their place in it. The twenty books he wrote or edited have influenced artists and performers as well as scholars and students. When he died, he was working on a monumental historical atlas of world mythology. He's effort to bring under one roof, the spiritual intellectual wisdom of a lifetime. Some of his books are classics the hero with a thousand faces which established his fame forty years ago and his volume study of mythology, the masks of God. Joseph Campbell was one of the most spiritual man I ever met, but he didn't have an ideology or theology mythology was to him the song of the universe music. So deeply embedded in our collective unconscious that we dance to it even when we can't name the June. Over the last two summers of his life, we take these conversations Californian, at skywalker ranch, the home of his friend George Lucas, who's movie trilogy Star Wars had been influenced by Campbell's work. We, talked about the message and meaning of myth about the first storytellers about love and marriage gods and goddesses religion ritual art psychology. But we always came around to his favorite subject the hero with a thousand faces. Why the hero with a thousand faces. Well because there is a certain. Typical. Hero sequence. Of Actions. which can be detected in stars from all over the world and from many many periods of history. And I think it's essentially might say the one deed done by many many different people. Why are there so many stories of the hero or if he rose in mythology Well because that's what's worth writing about. I mean even in. Popular novel writing you see these the main characters hero or heroine that is to say someone who has found or achieved or done something beyond the normal range of achievement experienced. A hero properly is someone who has given his life to something bigger than himself. are other than himself. So. When all of these cultures whatever the costume that he will not be wearing what is the deed? Whether two types of deed. One is the physical deed, the hero who has performed A. War Act a physical act of heroism saving a life. That's a heroic. Giving him. Self sacrificing himself. To another. And the other kind is the spiritual hero who has learned are found a a mode of experiencing the. Super Normal range of human spiritual life, and then come back and communicated. It's a cycle, it's going and to return that the hero cycle represents. But then this can be seen also in the simple initiation ritual where a child has to give up his childhood and become an adult asked the guy you might say to it's infantile personality and psyche and come back as a self responsible adult. It's a fundamental experience that everyone has to undergo. We're in our childhood for at least fourteen years. And then to get out of that. Posture of dependency psychological dependency into one of psychological self responsibility requires a death and resurrection is the Basic Motif of the hero's journey leaving one condition. Finding a source of life to bring you fourth in a Richer or more mature or other condition so that if we happen not to be heroes and the grand sense of redeeming society, we have to take that journey ourselves spiritually psychologically. Inside us, that's right and auto ranked in his wonderful should very short book called the myth of the birth of the hero. He says that everyone is a heroin, his birth he has undergone a tremendous transformation from a little in my say water creature living in round of the amniotic fluid, and so forth. Then coming out becoming an air breathing mammal that ultimately will be self-standing and so forth this enormous transformation. ROIC actress Roy on the mother's pot, bring it about that. The primary hero. Form, you might say still a journey to be taken after that. A big to be taken that journey is not consciously undertaken Do Heroes go out on their own initiative well, all kinds. A very common one that appears and Celtic myths of someone who has followed the lure of a deer are animal that he has been following an carries him into a range of forest and landscape that he's never been in before and then the. The animal will undergo a transformation, become the queen of the ferry hills or something like that. That is one of not knowing what you're doing. You suddenly find yourself. In. Full career of an adventure. Than another one where one sets out responsibly and Intentionally to perform the deed, for instance, when ulysses son to limits was called by Athenee, go find your father that followed. The quest is a major hero adventure for young people at is the venture finding what your career is, what your nature is once you're. Sauce is. he undertakes that intentionally. Then there's one into which you are thrown and pitched. For instance being drafted into the army. You didn't intend it. They are in. The are in another transformation you've gone a death and resurrection you put on the uniform another creature. So does the heroism moral objective. The ball objective is that of saving a people are saving a person ours saving an idea. He, is sacrificing himself for something that's the morality of it. Now you from another position, I say that something was something that should not have been realized. Judgment from another side, but it doesn't destroy the heroism of what was done absolutely not. Well that's a different. Angle on heroes than I got when I was reading as a as a young boy, the story of prometheus going after the fire and bringing it back and benefiting humanity and suffering.

It can put you in a positive mood and that starts an UPWARD SPIRAL. That makes you feel more creative. And thereby further increases your happiness for somehow life creeps in and takes over the time. We'd love to spend exploring creatively before we know it. We feel like we've lost touch with our creative side entirely. This week's guest is an expert in tapping into creativity. Martha Alderson is an author who also works with bestselling authors Hollywood directors artists and performers all over the world to help them find their creativity. Now you can try this at home. Her New workbook boundless. Creativity is a one month exploration into your creative side. So let's hear what Martha has to say about it. Martha welcome to live happy. Now thank you for inviting me. I'm thrilled to be here. This is such a great work book that you've written for us. And what a great time for us to work on our creativity. It seems like it. I know that a lot of people are under enormous stress for all sorts of reasons because of the virus but if people do have free time and they're looking fill it creatively. I think by going through the program in the workbook. It's just a great way to let go of. That's happening around us. All the news all the problems of the world and just sink into your creativity and into really your spirit sh and who you are at your core beyond all the material things the problems and everything else so. I think it would be a great place for people to spend some time. We'll obviously when you wrote it. He didn't say hey. I think everyone's going to have a couple of months you know. So what was your decision behind writing it in the first place? Well I been a plot consultant for about thirty years for riders every story whether it's a memoir scream player. A novel has to have a plot and I'm passionate about empowering women's voices and women traditionally have had a lot of trouble with plot because it's a very linear logical progression and of Women. Writers are highly creative somewhat disorganized and are very interested in character development. But they don't really get plot in so. I just became passionate about teaching everybody but it seemed like it turned out to be the majority of women and then in doing that. It soon evolved into working with all kinds of creative people because what I found is we're all sort of on the same universal path. It's a universal story. That has certain markers in them that we pass through along the way. And what I found is that it's great when you're in the creative muse and everything's flowing in your feeling that euphoria of feeling like a conduit or a medium for the creative news to come through you. But at some point we stumble and all of a ten. We read over what we wrote. Are we look at the painting we painted and think? Oh my gosh you know. It's not what I thought it was going to be. And we started to doubt ourselves and self sabotage come up with sorts of reasons why we should put the project aside or give up or whatever and this is especially true for anyone who has perhaps suffered what. I call a backstory wound. Which is something that has traumatized them? In some way you know it can be a divorce or apparently being when you're a child or some kind of abuse or whatever and that really influences what we say to ourselves about our worthiness in our capabilities and our potential and that really interferes with the creative flow. All of a sudden that flow is stymied and our spirits. Can't really get through to be able to give us the support and the encouragement that we deserve. I wanted to write a workbook to be able to help people to become unblocked it to be able to get rid of all this self doubt and insecurities and unworthiness and to really live a life of passion and excitement and happiness joy and that really is something that I'm devoted to and with this workbook. You really prepare us for what we're going to do. It does such a wonderful job of asking these deep thoughtful questioned. Where did that come from over the course of time? Did you develop that? These are the questions that are going to help drive us into our creative selves. Well I think it's just sort of evolved over the last thirty years or so probably my whole life to tell you the truth but when I came up with the idea of the universal story I had a really hard time bringing it down to the concrete was very cereal and spiritual in all of that but once I started writing more about it and seeing these parts you know the beginning the middle and the end it really correlates with the Hero's journey that Joseph Campbell came up with but I take it a step further and called the universal story because I see it in not just what we move through as humans on our human path but nature you know the seasons of the year the moon cycles plants growth animal cycles. All these things have the same beginning middles and ends. And if you're aware of where you are on that journey and what's expected of you. It just makes the journey easier.

"The more. They're unmet needs the more. Our sense of who we are gets identified with the primitive wolf does that make sense? The more needs are not met. And by the way, we all have unmet needs. And of it's not through our even if our caregivers were great were in remember that PTSD society, we're in a society that its very nature is to condition us in ways that are hurtful. It's not our conditioning. It's our societies conditioning, and our society has the primitive wolf in our society is that all those penalties towards consuming an addiction and all those tendencies towards unreal. Other in making others bad. Creating fear need to defend. So one of the ways that we often described this is from Joseph Campbell who describes awareness as a big circle. And there's a line going through and many of your familiar with us. No wanna come back to offer it for tonight's reflection. That anything below the line in awareness. That's out is outside of our awareness. And we get dented with it. And other words, the unfilled unseen parts of your psyche are the very ones that your identity gets wrapped around the parts of you that you don't like that you push away. That's actually where you're most identified. So what happens is back to the wolves. When there's unmet needs the energy gets stronger. It goes more below the line. We get more identified if there's trauma way below the line way identified and the major reactions from the wall. From that identified place is to blame. That's where we're going to spend our time when we're identified when we're hijacked by the limbic system were caught up in the primitive wolf. Our tendency is to blame ourselves and blame others. That's the second hour is when we're caught up your, you know, we're feeling shame and heard and fear and anger. And then we add that our of I'm bad, and that's the final thrust of the primitive wolf to really trap us on that. And of course, we say, you're bad too. So our theme our explorations going to be really had a we he'll evolve from being identified with the primitive wolf, you know. In other words, how do we really open up to our wholeness and one of the teachings? I find most powerful came from an attachment psychologists kind of evolutionary psychologists Cozzolino who said it's not survival of the fittest its survival of. Nurtured. It's not survival of the fittest the one that can win fight flight freeze its survival of the nurture. So the inquiry for us really is when we're stuck. How do we nurture?.
