Meaning of hero's journey

“Where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world,” Joseph Campbell.

The above quote succinctly describes the hero's journey. We go from a selfish perspective to a worldly one, one in which we know our interconnectedness with all others. We have no choice in whether we will do this journey called life; all we can choose is how we will do our journey. Why don't we make the most of it by exploring the possibilities of the hero's journey? How are the one to whom I provide care and I connected? What is the meaning of this part of life's journey for me?
