Making the Transition

In the hero stories, the call to go on a journey takes the form of a loss, a depression, an error, a wound, an unexplainable longing, or a sense of mission.

When any of these happen to us, we are summoned to make a transition. It will always mean leaving something behind, but as Meister Eckhart says, "everything is meant to be lost, that the soul may stand in unhampered nothingness."

The paradox here is that loss is a path to gain.
