Don’t be afraid and doors will open

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 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.

  2. So true! I love Joseph Campbell and his works. He changed my life when I was in high school.
    Following bliss everyday can be so scary but eventually you develop a healthy curiosity.
    I still have to fight fear often though. I wish I knew what fear was afraid of. Then I think, “oh yes, to be proven wrong often.”
