Follow Your Bliss Quote

 

This is a wonderful quote from Joseph Campbell's book, THE POWER OF MYTH. I hope this insightful passage resonates with some of you, and perhaps even opens a door.

"The way to find out about your happiness
is to keep your mind on those moments
when you really ARE happy --
not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy.

This requires a little bit of self- analysis.
What is it that makes you happy?
Stay with it, no matter what people tell you.
This is what I call, 'Following Your Bliss.'

If you do 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.
Wherever you are, if you are following your bliss,
you are enjoying that refreshment,
that life within you, all the time.

When you can see that,
you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open doors for 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."
