Spirit, matter and new reality
The crazy thing is that man can imagine these things, but can only realise them to a limited extent. The traditions, however, want to lure him out of his lethargy and make him dream. Because perhaps more is possible than we believe? - If we believe that ...
The way of the human being
Because the spirit is unlimited. And it is he who sets impulses for new reality in matter. Also the human being has a spirit or differently formulated a consciousness, and therefore he also asks himself big questions like: "What or who am I?", and: "(How) can I grow beyond myself, even be like God?". These are the central themes of the traditions.
Thereby the "gods" as archetypes often represent spiritual forces in matter, which also influence man.
The dreams have given rise to stories about man's path and goal, about his struggle against odds to achieve the best possible.
Overcome with heroism
The courage to change
The real struggle of the human being, however, usually takes place against inner monsters that prevent him from living. These can be, for example, destructive convictions and beliefs..
The good news, however, is that every person can be a hero, because there are undreamt-of gifts and resources hidden in everyone. These must be discovered and bring them to the light of consciousness. In doing so, they are released from negativity, i.e. "non-being", denial and rejection.
Overcoming in difficulties
The inner bondage of the human being is often represented in the traditions by bondage or enslavement under a dark shadow ruler. This symbolises the identity of fear and separation, or in other words the ego seeking power. seeks power.
The goal for man, however, is to overcome fear in the power of love and thus find his promised land or kingdom in life.
The path to this goal is the hero's path. The final test leads the hero into the underworld, namely into the realm of the "dead", which are an image for the locked away and buried resources that are condemned to live a shadowy existence in life. By "perceiving" them, in other words by becoming aware of them and accepting them, man brings them to light and redeems them.
