At some point one realizes “I am on a journey.” One’s dreams may give one this sense. Or one has identified an archetype in one’s dreams and senses it is “pointing the way.”
Later in this journey, instead of “having a dream,”observing it, now one identifies with it. One is not seeing the archetype, one is being it.
Still later, one identifies less with images and more with the movement of change, the journey itself. Then one realizes: I am the Journey!
