Walking in two worlds is a common theme throughout various spiritual pathways. You have probably heard of it through Joesph Campbell and his work with the Hero's Journey, While I LOVE the hero's journey I much prefer Maureen Murdock's Heroine Journey as it applies to reclaiming the feminine and OUR quest for wholeness.
The two worlds co-exist. More and more folks are waking up to this reality. I live and work in two worlds. Dipping in and out at will, all the while they are inextricable linked and ever crossing over.
One world is:
tangible + physical
The other world is:
magical/ mystical / dream-time
Some folks are cynical and rightly so. I get it. I am not interested in convincing others that two worlds exists. Why not? For starters it's an argument I won't win. It generally takes some kind of earth shattering- mystical experience to crack the mind open to this possibility. Personal experience trumps all.
Anyways, I always boil it down to this:
My life is richer, fuller, and more meaningful for believing in and immersing myself in two worlds. Not better than. Not more right but fulfilling- and that is all I ever wanted. Meaning. Substance. Something REAL. I've lived the antithesis of this and it was miserable. M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-E.
I value my experience of life.
