FLOW IS BLISS

“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” ~Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell was perhaps the world’s foremost scholar of Mythology. No one was more familiar with the deeper meaning of Flow than him…he studied many cultures with different myths pointing toward this intrinsic experience, but strangely found few people who are able to follow this wisdom.

It requires a dedicated search within to find that special talent or passion in which we are prepared to make a total emotional commitment as our primary identity…it should include a passionate energy including feelings of play, imagination, and creativity…all qualities of our “inner child” but growing to unlimited heights.

“My general formula for my students is “Follow your bliss.” Find where it is, and don’t be afraid to follow it… doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.”

“Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it…the meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be…the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.”

“Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging…the big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure...we must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us…we’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value”

“What each must seek in his life is something out of our own unique potentiality for experience, something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else… your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.”
