|A Cottage by the Sea||
The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the tread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. Were we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world.
Follow 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 you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
When before the beauty of a sunset or a mountain, you pause and exclaim,
"Ah," you are participating in divinity.
Joseph Campbell, quoted in www.gratefulness.org
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.
You have to strive every minute to get rid of the life that you have planned in order to have the life that's waiting to be yours.
