As the hero conquers the Abyss, his transformation is complete.
Like the Phoenix, a part of the hero must die so that a new part can be reborn.
Fear must die to make way for courage, Ignorance for enlightenment, dependency for independence
Part of the Transformation is a Revelation, a sudden, dramatic change in the way the hero thinks or views life.
This change makes him truly a different person.
After the Transformation the hero achieves Atonement, that is he is “at one” with his new self.
The hero has incorporated the changes caused by the Journey and is “reborn”
The “Om” the Hindu symbol of “oneness”
After Transformation and Atonement, the hero faces the final stage of his journey: The Return to everyday life.
Upon the return, the hero discovers his gift –
Become richer and stronger
Become a great leader
Become spiritually enlightened.
