Following the Golden thread

''The golden thread is a symbol of the inspiration, intuition, and guiding light that graces us throughout our lives. It is that which we follow, knowing that it will, in some mysterious way, guide us on our true paths in life. It is most colorfully portrayed in Greek mythology as the magical thread that Ariadne gave to Theseus, assisting him in his heroic journey into and out of the Minotaur's labyrinth. As we travel through literal and figurative labyrinths in our lives, the golden thread may easily go unnoticed, yet when it is recognized and followed, we may find that this archetypal strand of gold connects us to our true selves, to our beloveds, and to that which we discover to be home.''


  1. its like that bit in donnie darko with the weird water thing that everyone follows

  2. This is profound. Thank you. I am using the myth of Ariadne as a metaphor for tracing the path of memory in the children of survivors of war and trauma (memoir form). The way you put it together is a gift! Peace be with you.
