The Hero’s Journey is like a bridge. One in which it leaves the old world behind you and brings you to the new. The path in between is invisible though, scary and often much more arduous than shown in this scene.
To successfully make the journey, you need to continually frame yourself in the arc of understanding the old world that is dying and the new world you’re trying to reach. This gives you the impetus and momentum to step forward but also the inner bearing to step in the right direction.
