follow your bliss

Joseph Campbell wrote: “If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.  When you see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you.  I say follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

    Oh I do so love Joseph Campbell. We studied his Seventeen Steps To A Hero…shesshhh…I hope I remember the title correctly. It was eons ago. And, I simply fell in love with much of his writing and teaching. Did you know that there is one movie that actually contains all seveteen steps? Well there is and it is ‘Dances With wolves’. That’s right they are all in there. I wrote about this once. Occasionally I do wander off and actually produce something of a little merit within my blog. But, I warn you if you like the movie don’t try this exercise. Because after at least a hundred veiwings it’s all I can barely do to watch an add for this movie any longer.

    Oh thanks for the lovely and delicious memory of Joseph Campbell!!:)
