What am I called to do?” It does not tell us how to get a job. Rather, it illustrates what the journey entails, puts us in touch with our own path, and shows us how to claim and realize our possibilities. It gives us our bearings—performing the age-old function of myth which is to help us see “from whence we came, and whither we go.”
