Following Bliss

If you haven't seen Bill Moyer's and Joseph Campbell's Power of the Myth video series you simply must. I believe it is six hours and worth every minute. Joseph Cambell was a religious studies professor for many years and this is his opus. He said "Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there was only walls," and "To find your own way is to follow your bliss," and "Find a place inside where there is joy, and the joy will burn out the pain." A few of the ways I follow my bliss are, music, art (my wife's here), poetry, motorcycling, favorite videos, and gratitude. There are a lot of good things in the world so the post is bound to change and grow over time. The point is, what is your bliss, where is it, and how can you keep it close to your heart?
