Follow Your Bliss
Follow your bliss is a phrase made famous by Joseph Campbell, noted scholar, author, and mythology professor.
"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track, which has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living." ~ Joseph Campbell
Bliss is that which joyfully resonates with every part of your being. It’s doing what your inner voice drives you to do. Bliss is a joy that wells up in you whenever you are doing what you love.
You have an inner knowing that leads you to what creates that feeling of bliss in you. It’s a feeling you get when you know something is perfect for you, there is no hesitation just the knowing that you have to follow it. Follow that inner knowing "the voice within"
and you will find you have put yourself on a path that was especially paved for you.
Follow your bliss and along the way doors will open, you will encounter people, places, and things that will help further your journey, your journey of honoring your inner being. Living your bliss is living your best life now.
In this age of enlightenment (and I truly believe we are in the age of enlightenment) there is a new awakening to this view of following your bliss. So many people are finding their own unique ways to realize their dreams. They tailor life to meet the calling of their inner being. Working 9 to 5 has become old school thinking, finding ways to make a living doing what you love is now the new mind-set. This is a material world but you are a spiritual being here in physical form to experience this world.
You are coming to the realization that in order to live in this physical presence you have to live from within and be true to your spiritual nature. The old ways are not working. You’ve tried looking outside yourself for happiness and perhaps find it for a short time then realize it’s still not satisfying. You have a dream that dream comes from within; it is "the voice within"
gently guiding you.
Realize the Dream
Make your dream a reality follow your bliss and live your best life now. Begin your journey with one small step and see what wondrous things life has in store for you. Remember one small step at a time.
Start your journey by becoming aware of the moment for this moment right now is all you have the past is gone and the future isn’t here yet. Being fully aware in each moment will help you to see the opportunities that are waiting for you. Whatever it is you wish to pursue starts with your awareness of it, then taking action toward it no matter how small that action is it will start the ball rolling. Be present in every moment don’t let self defeating thoughts take hold just follow that dream and all will be given you.
