Follow your bliss
Is a phrase coined by Joseph Campbell that in essence tells us that we should pursue what gives us great joy, which we are passionate about, something that comes from deep within us. I will add here that "Following our bliss" is that which does not harm anyone but is achieved with love and kindness.
Each of us has a purpose to fulfil in our lives. Some have grand purposes and some have little ones. It does not matter which group you fall into. What matters is that we achieve what we are meant to achieve, what our soul is meant to learn or experience in this lifetime.
The way to fulfil that purpose is to "Follow our bliss". Our passions, deep desires and all the things that bring us joy are indicators of the path we are meant to walk.
Even when the people around you think you are crazy, follow your bliss because, in the words of Mother Teresa, "In the final analysis, it is between you and God, it was never between you and them anyway".
