The Binary Return Journeys of Elsa & Anna – A Deeper Meaning of Frozen 2

What surprises me most about Frozen II is the fact that it wasn’t nearly as popular as Frozen. People didn’t go as crazy for it and it didn’t end up with a song that was covered more times than 9/11. I know that analogy doesn’t fit, but stick with me here. In my opinion, Frozen […]

How the Hero’s & Heroine’s Journeys Work Together – A Deeper Meaning of Frozen (2013)

With the new season of Think Spiritual begun and the Heroine’s Journey series started, I think it’s important to explain how my Hero’s and Heroine’s Journeys work together. I’m actually going to call them “Binary Journeys” – not only are there two parts, but the parts orbit each other, they entwine and they conjoin in […]

Freedom to Live: The Hero’s Journey Step 17

I know, I know I keep saying the same thing about these last few stages of the Hero’s Journey: we don’t see them fleshed out in modern films. I keep emphasizing this just in case new Watchers and Listeners jump in on a later episode and I really want you to understand that these steps […]

Master of Two Worlds: The Hero’s Journey Step 16

To put it mildly, these last few weeks have been interesting and this week has been tragic for many people in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. I would like to comment on that event, but the perpetrator’s motive has not been clarified. I believe I know what his motive was, but I won’t surmise […]

The Crossing of the Return Threshold – The Hero’s Journey Step 15

These last few steps of the Hero’s Journey are highly interwoven. So highly, in fact, that I had considered incorporating all of them into a single episode. However, I have chosen to not do so as that hasn’t been the pattern of this series. As I’ve been saying throughout all of these Return Stage episodes, […]

Rescue from Without – The Hero’s Journey Step 14

Half of the purpose of every Hero’s Journey is to go down into the depths of your Soul. To unleash your True Self and work your way towards being the best and highest version of you that you can possibly be. And all of this can’t be fully achieved until you begin to make the […]

The Magic Flight – The Hero’s Journey Step 13

This Hero’s Journey series may become quite the mess as we continue this exploration of the Return stage of the journey. Why is that? Because, uh, I’m actually living this portion of the journey. You are witnesses to my fight to bring the Elixir of Life back to, well, you. I’m in the midst of […]

Refusal of Return – The Hero’s Journey Step 12

On October 3, 2019, we’ll press pause on our Kung Fu Panda series and look at the little-seen Return stage of the Hero’s Journey. Do you have children or do you remember being the type of child who cried and complained whenever your parents took you somewhere. And then, when it was time to leave, […]

The Ultimate Boon – The Hero’s Journey Step 11

I had this whole very nice and “welcome back” and “thank you new subscribers” introduction all planned and written out and then I had to go and wreck it by writing a whole new third season, first episode script. Way to waylay my own plans! Now I have no idea how to introduce this episode […]
