IT’S TIME TO STOP WASTING TIME!
One of my ALL TIME favorite people is Joseph Campbell. This man was AMAZING. If you don’t know who he is, stop right now and Google him.
Joseph Campbell spent his lifetime studying the structure of all stories and mythologies and found out that basically they are all the same story. Many different versions of the same story.
And so, after studying these Joe came to some conclusions. One of them is the famous line, “Follow your bliss.” But what you may or may not know is that not only did Joe coin this phrase, he went on to say something else. And the next thing he said, when understood and APPLIED, is staggering.
Joe went on to say, “When you follow your bliss, doors will open where there were no doors before, and where there are no doors for anyone else.”
Now, wait a minute - I know that’s just a sentence, but COME ON! That is CRAY CRAY!
He is basically saying that when we do what we love, The Uni-verse opens up and WELCOMES us into our dream. There will be trials, there will be tests, there will be epic moments of facing our fear - and yet, all the while, we have our bliss.
His PROMISE is that doors will open. And this is a man who has studied ALL the STORIES from EVERY CORNER of the EARTH, ALL the faiths, ALL the religions, ALL the wisdom that mankind has to offer us, boils down to this - for Joe.
So if ALL the wisdom of mankind can be boiled down to this - what the HELL are we doing wasting our time doing ANYTHING else?
If you are like me, I was hypnotized by the collective stories of the world. Stories of economic turmoil, stories of death, destruction and how bad everything is. And yet - at the same time, no matter what is going on in the “man made” world - when we plant a seed and nourish it properly, it grows. The sun still shines. The waves still roll.
Life BLOOMS all around us. And here we are worried about lack.
If we take a moment to actually LOOK AROUND, we might notice that we are surrounded by a THRIVING planet with ABUNDANCE EVERYWHERE! We might notice that just because bad things happen, doesn’t mean we can’t make the best of them. Or just because “the economy” is in a certain place, doesn’t mean there aren’t AMPLE opportunities to SERVE and ATTRACT abundance as a result.
I don’t care who you are going to vote for in November - they can’t save you. What will save you is FOLLOWING YOUR BLISS.
And when you do, FREAKIN DOORS will OPEN! HELLO!
What are we waiting for? Yes, please participate in the world, but don’t let the world DEFINE WHO YOU ARE!
Only you and The Divine can do that. And while you’re busy following your bliss, watching doors open as you step out in faith, you are going to mystify and impress other people who can’t believe you are bucking the trend. And some people aren’t going to celebrate you following your bliss, but who FREAKIN CARES?
Do you want to follow the wisdom of ALL MANKIND and follow your bliss (and in doing so be supported by The Uni-verse the same way a seed is supported), or do you want to outsource your power to the stories of the world and let OTHER PEOPLE define what’s possible and true for you?"
