A Child's Bliss

Thank you, csaulino for this! My son turned 6 today, and I finally let him watch Star Wars. I've seen it dozens of times, but tonight, watching his face, I was transported back to when I first saw it in 1977. Just being there with him brought back all those magical feelings. Being a parent is very c...

Bliss in the Mundane

I know I should find bliss in everything that I do, including the mundane. Sometimes, with all the day-to-day things that we have to do, it’s really a struggle. Hard as I try, I cannot see even Joseph Campbell enraptured during a bowel movement (sorry for the visual).

How I got into Mythology

I got interested in mythology when I was 25. My uncle had given me the Transformation of Myth Trough Time series on video. I was fascinated by the way Joe focused on the similarities of the world’s religions and mythologies instead of the differences. It seemed like he had found a golden thread that...

The Universe Answers

I wanted to share this with you all, as I believe it is a manifestation of the collective consciousness that we all share, especially on this forum. I’ve been flying out to LA every other week from New York on business, and decided to get out of the hotel and go to the beach. I almost didn’t go, pla...

New Mythology

In Power of Myth, JC mentions that things are too much in flux right now for a myth to congeal, but that when it does, it will probably have the Earth as its icon. Perhaps there's a Gaia myth in our future?

Deepa Kali

Nandu, I can very much relate with your writing experience, as I have recently completed a screenplay which is based on Joe's Monomyth... although I didn't know about that structure when I wrote it (just a little spooky). It was truly amazing! The words flowed to the page like water from my soul. So...

Everyone In!

No one is disqualified, Evinnra. Feel free to call me anytime… I love to talk. Just ask Neoplato. He called me out of the blue once and we talked for an hour! I really love the JCF; It's like an extended family.

The Man king

what does make a man king, only the hero deed guided by the hand of God? http://www.samarra.com/jcf/Percival.jpg And thus Parzivall , the hero guided my God, becomes the grail king. So then every person becomes a king when they listen to that voice of God, the Universe, The Force, etc. telling them...

Dreaming of George Lucas

To all: I’ve recently had my investors pull out from a feature film that I wrote. Since then, I’ve been having dreams at night about pitching the idea to George Lucas. My subconscious seems to be hard at work trying to find a solution! Since my screenplay is based on Joe’s Monomyth, specifically the...

Inner Child

Rene, I think the end of your dream is the most powerful. You connected with your inner child through the interaction with your step son. As he is no longer a child, you could say that you also connected with his. We, as adults, are so caught up in the day-to-day routine of paying bills and rushing ...
