All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
Article 1 (out of 28) of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights issued in 1948.
The journey gets no easier. Temptations arise to accept and enjoy what has been achieved. These temptations are often of a sexual nature. Either the Hero, Goddess or both may indulge in a pretence that the journey is complete or may decide to reject further challenges.
However, Hero and Goddess cannot ignore their responsibilities. They must reject the temptations and seek forgiveness from a Confessor; someone powerful enough to re-instil a belief in the importance of the journey and who can influence the final outcome.
The return to the normal world itself is filled with difficulty and danger. There will be those who want to prevent the return, and assistance will be required, just as it was at the start of the journey.
The return will be many times more difficult if the Hero is travelling with the Goddess, not away from her. They will have to develop a unified message. The place she wants to return to will often be different from the destination preferred by the Hero.
There is no guarantee that the world they return to in either location will be identical to the world they left. In their absence changes may have occurred which make the message or knowledge they carry no longer relevant.
As an example, the “Universal” Declaration of Human Rights was comprehensively rejected by the Islamic states in the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam (1990) which has now been implemented in 45 countries despite being condemned by The International Commission of Jurists. Was the Declaration implemented in 45 countries or the the rejection by the Islamic states? Ambigious sentence.
