Are You Following Your Bliss?

It is nice that you are reading me. But when you stop, will you be going off to do something you don’t want to do?

As I was posting that Joseph Campbell quote yesterday, I looked over his foundation’s website. And I was reminded of the Campbell story about the father telling his son to eat his peas at dinner. When the son said he didn’t want to eat his peas, the father barked back that his whole life had been spent doing things he didn’t want to do. So true. A sad remark. That mindset, or ethos, is so built into us.

So what are you doing? How near is your bliss? Can you touch it?

Not sure that I can touch my bliss, but I did enjoy the link to the Joseph Campbell Foundation’s site. I read one of his books, maybe a decade ago.>

My Bliss is sitting within arms length and still I’m having trouble grasping it but I continue to try. It is always harder to do this when you have so many who “Poo poo” it.>
