The messiah, the savior, the chosen one is born again and again out of a need. Life is a continually repeating play and the birth of one who will bring balance back to the world is ever happening anew.
There is not just one messiah. At any one time there is only one messiah in the world – but every age needs its own unique yet archetypal savior
A hero will come, as has come before, and will come again….
“And his paths shall be many, and who shall know his name, for he shall be born among us many times, in many guises, as he has been and ever will be, time without end.”
Sometimes a perfect storm forms. Sometimes the right person is in the right place at the right time. Sometimes a person is born with the deep insight and skillful articulateness into a world thirsty for a catalyst. Sometimes God walks the earth in the form of a Man. Sometimes the Word becomes flesh, poetry becomes incarnate.
Humanities favorite story is that of the hero, the messiah, the savior – the one who is born and humility and rises to shake the foundations of the earth. The one who is a redeeming presence, a liberating force, and a beacon of love. The one who brings balance back to the force, who vanquishes evil and restores the light to its glory. The one who traverses the summit of human experience and returns to the world to share the liberating treasure.
The messiah is the hero par excellence.

Each person, YOU, are the messiah
The key is to realize that you are the messiah in your own myth. That you are the hero of your own story. That you are the protagonist in the film of your life (which is the only film in town), you are the character in your very own video game.
You have a great destiny to discover and fulfill. And upon you, the very existence of the world depends.
