Some Personal Thoughts and Trivia

Joseph Campbell

American educator and philosopher who coined the phrase "Follow Your Bliss" (1904 - 1987)

The Artist's Way Every Day - July 11th

Mythologist Joseph Campbell advised those seeking fulfilling lives to follow their bliss. Nowhere is this better advice than in writing. When we choose to write about what we truly care about, when our values and the characters' values coincide, when our stakes and the story's stakes coincide, we write with passion, purity, and purpose. Like lightening bolts, we hit our target and shed some light in the process.

Joseph Campbell on Follow Your Bliss

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

Follow Your Bliss

Brunette Cathy Rowland was Playmate of the Month for August 1971

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. 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. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.

American mythologist, writer and lecturer
