Thank You for the Wind and the Sea. I invite you to severe November Curonian Spit, where the wind tells the truth about his nature and the sea opens a new dimension of the storm. And a hero’s journey begins.
“Follow Your Bliss” was the motto of Joseph Campbell. And by my opinion he knows everything about hero’s journey.
“Contre Le Vent” (Against the Wind) sculpture is about a hero’s journey. You can found it in Lithuania, Curonian Spit sand dunes.
Joseph Campbell said that the great life is, basically, one hero’s journey after another. Follow Your Bliss – Contre Le Vent, then again Follow your Bliss – Against The Wind, and again until the end. It is the Destine’s Theme from the 5th Symphony:
Joseph Campbell writes: “Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There’s always the possibility of a fiasco. But there’s also the possibility of bliss.”
I see a really strong man in the sculpture. He must be very courageous, as Beethoven, to follow his bless, against the North Baltic wind.
Joseph Campbell inspires: “What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself. There is nothing you can do that’s more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way you will find, live, become a realization of your own personal myth.”
Do you accept right now that you are the gift to the world? I dare to become a sign and a signal for you. We need to be a beacons for each other and go and live our hero’s journey.
The sculpture seems to be alone. But it has his creator, it inspires. I had a long journey to see it. The Destiny’s theme from the 5th Symphony I had felt its pulse there. And this Pulse, this vibration of the Sculpture make me believe to Joseph Campbell – we are never alone, in every myth we live there are a helpers, a magicians, a wizards.
Beethoven’s 5 Secrets are for you for today!
Follow Your Bliss – Against The Wind! Follow Your Bliss – Contre Le Vent – in French way it will be easier, I know. Love your smiling eyes.
