Into the Dark

"There's a kind of regular morphology and inevitable sequence of experiences if you start out to follow your adventure. I don't care whether it's in economics, in art, or just in play. There's a sense of the potential that opens out before you. And you have no idea how to achieve it; you start out into the dark. Then, strange little help-mates come along who just give you clues, and these open out. Then there is the sense of danger you always run into- really deep peril- because no one has gone this way before. And the winds blow, and you're in a forest of darkness very often and terror strikes you. And where it seems most challenging lies the greatest invitation to find deeper and greater powers in ourselves." - Joseph Campbell
