Here is a quote by Dr. Joseph Campbell that I’ve always thought to be true, though I couldn’t state it as clearly as he could. I’ve lived by it almost my entire life. So, for what it’s worth…it just might be of interest to you too;
“We are having experiences all the time which may on occasion render some sense of this, a little intuition of where your bliss is. Grab it. No one can tell you what it is going to be.
You have to learn to recognize your own depth.All the time. It is miraculous. I even have a superstition that has grown on me as the result of invisible hands coming all the time-namely, that 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.
When you can 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.”
Just weeks before he died in 1986, Joseph Campbell was interviewed for a 6 hours TV series called ‘the Power of Myth’. The interview was taken at the ranch of George Lucas who, because he got so inspired by Campbell, created Star Wars based purely on mythology.
