The Veils of Illusion: (An Allegory: The Hero's Journey)

Maria Pelengaris

At times we feel that our lives must have a higher purpose. We long to connect to our own individual Truth. Should one of our life's challenges become extremely difficult to bear, we might refer to it as the dark night of the soul. Sophia is a young woman who has become very dissatisfied and disillusioned with life. She feels trapped. She is then forced to take a journey through the dark night of the soul in her quest for greater meaning. "To be truly free you have to face yourself," the wise old man of the forest tells Sophia early on in her journey. The Veils of Illusion is an allegory; a mystical journey of discovery during which Sophia undergoes many trials and tests, each providing her with the arduous task of learning greater wisdom and new insights. She encounters a variety of unique and intriguing characters along the way, like the majestic Sibyl who reigns over the Land of the Shadows and the gentle Emil who talks with delight of the moon and of the Divine Feminine. Yet Sophia's ultimate goal is to meet her own Shadow self - her unconscious - that which has been hidden away for so long. Shadows are cast only in the presence of light. Will Sophia find a way to see that there is also beauty and wisdom in her own Shadow? Walk with Sophia along the West Road. Weave through the light and dark, and find out if she can free herself from the ties that bind. This story offers hope and inspiration to anybody who walks their own sacred journey of self- discovery. Profoundly moving, this is an enchanting and dream-like portrayal of one person's emotional and spiritual journey of transformation to wholeness.
