In this episode, Tamsen explains that the image of the Red Thread comes from a familiar story in Greek mythology that you may have heard of: the Minotaur and the Labyrinth.
From the myth of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth, we learn that fighting your battles isn’t necessarily the hard part, it’s really about finding the right path. The primary character in this story, Theseus, is sent into the maze to slay the Minotaur. Theseus snuck in two items to help him, a sword and a ball of red yarn. But, as Tamsen explains, it’s not his sword that ends up saving the day.
This story illustrates why the name Find the Red Thread describes exactly what the Red Thread does. The goal of the Red Thread is to help us figure out how to navigate the world around us, what monsters we slay, what swords we carry, and how we can follow the path we took to understand better ways to master change.
