Thrust from our Ordinary World, scanning an outdated map, we are caught unaware, when the Call To Adventure appears.
Realizing our well worn T-shirts from “Been There” and “Done That” don’t fit, Temptation suggests that we refuse the call.
Visiting ghosts gave Scrooge the chance to answer the call.
Scrooge remains defiant and will not change his ways.
Confidence and Self-Reliance reinforce our walls of security.
For Scrooge and us, walls block the adventures that strengthen us. Walls prevent the expansion of our life. Walls make our living a coffin.
Scrooge faced his lonely grave of the future and makes the existential shift.
Scrooge could have said ‘No’ and the name Tiny Tim would have no meaning for us.
We can say ‘No.’ There will be no story.
Accepting a Call to Adventure keeps life authentic, humble and vital. It is The Quest of Living.
BEWARE: Devising a self-imposed Call to Adventure is a “Plan” not a “Call.”
