The hero with a thousand faces Author: Joseph Campbell Publisher: Fontana, Once they have cast themselves as Jason, it is no good telling them that there is no Golden Fleece to win.
I am stuck with the role assigned to me by their narrative. In my own story, I am more like the Wizard of Oz. My patients have come a long way down the yellow brick road and overcome many obstacles in order to have a personal audience with me.
They have done so in the belief that I am the only one with the power to restore their world to the way it should be and to get them back to Kansas.
And yet I know that I have no magical powers and cannot live up to their expectations. Like the Wizard, I have choices.
I could set them an unachievable task so that failure is their fault. I could stall with smoke and mirrors. I could come out from behind the curtain and confess to being a humbug.

As the Wizard, I must choose how to play my role. How will my actions fit into their narratives? These metaphors are statements that point beyond themselves into the transcendent.
The Hero's Journey was the story of the man or woman who, through great suffering, reached an experience of the eternal source and returned with gifts powerful enough to set their society free. As this story spread through space and evolved through time, it was broken down into various local forms masks , depending on the social structures and environmental pressures that existed for the culture that interpreted it. These stages, as well as the symbols one encounters throughout the story, provide the necessary metaphors to express the spiritual truths the story is trying to convey.
Metaphor for Campbell, in contrast with comparisons which make use of the word like, pretend to a literal interpretation of what they are referring to, as in the sentence " Jesus is the Son of God" rather than "the relationship of man to God is like that of a son to a father". Those are categories of thought.

I mean it's as simple as that. So it depends on how much you want to think about it.
Whether it's doing you any good. Whether it is putting you in touch with the mystery that's the ground of your own being. If it isn't, well, it's a lie.
So half the people in the world are religious people who think that their metaphors are facts. Those are what we call theists. The other half are people who know that the metaphors are not facts. And so, they're lies. Those are the atheists. According to Robert Ellwood , "A tendency to think in generic terms of people, races These appear at the end of his work The Masks of God: Creative Mythology, as well as various lectures.
Symbols and mythic metaphors on the other hand point outside themselves and into that reality.
They are what Campbell called "being statements"  and their enactment through ritual can give to the participant a sense of that ultimate mystery as an experience. The first function of mythology is to reconcile waking consciousness to the mysterium tremendum et fascinans of this universe as it is.
The Sociological Function Validate and support the existing social order Ancient societies had to conform to an existing social order if they were to survive at all. This is because they evolved under "pressure" from necessities much more intense than the ones encountered in our modern world.
Mythology confirmed that order and enforced it by reflecting it into the stories themselves, often describing how the order arrived from divine intervention. Campbell often referred to these "conformity" myths as the "Right Hand Path" to reflect the brain's left hemisphere's abilities for logic, order and linearity. Together with these myths however, he observed the existence of the "Left Hand Path", mythic patterns like the "Hero's Journey" which are revolutionary in character in that they demand from the individual a surpassing of social norms and sometimes even of morality.
Myth may serve as a guide for successful passage through the stages of one's life. Evolution of myth[ edit ] Campbell's view of mythology was by no means static and his books describe in detail how mythologies evolved through time, reflecting the realities in which each society had to adjust. In brief these are: The Way of the Animal Powers Hunting and gathering societies At this stage of evolution religion was animistic , as all of nature was seen as being infused with a spirit or divine presence.
At center stage was the main hunting animal of that culture, whether the buffalo for Native Americans or the eland for South African tribes, and a large part of religion focused on dealing with the psychological tension that came from the reality of the necessity to kill versus the divinity of the animal.
This was done by presenting the animals as springing from an eternal archetypal source and coming to this world as willing victims, with the understanding that their lives would be returned to the soil or to the Mother through a ritual of restoration. The story tells of a time when the buffalos stopped coming to the hunting plains, leaving the tribe to starve. The chief's daughter promises to marry the buffalo chief in return for their reappearance, but is eventually spared and taught the buffalo dance by the animals themselves, through which the spirits of their dead will return to their eternal life source.I listened A visit to the doctor fits this motif nicely.
His book The Hero with a Thousand Faces explores the archetypal myth that appears in traditional stories from around the world and also reappears in modern fiction. Robert M. Karen Armstrong. May 15, The chief's daughter promises to marry the buffalo chief in return for their reappearance, but is eventually spared and taught the buffalo dance by the animals themselves, through which the spirits of their dead will return to their eternal life source.
