Follow Your Bliss

Write Tribe Festival of Words #4 - Inspiration and Creativity

My theme for this festival is "Inspiration in three words"

Day 1 May 25 2015 = Follow Your Bliss



"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. However, "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. I also believe that when we "Follow our bliss", when we are in alignment with our soul or life path, things appear easy, that is we don't need to force anything.

No matter how crazy your bliss might seem and no matter what the people around you think, follow it. Because as Mother Teresa very wisely said, "In the final analysis, it is between you and God, it was never between you and them anyway".

Share your bliss with us.

Warm Regards

  4. So agree with this quote. We ourselves are truly responsible for giving our own life its meaning and purpose. So do what makes you happy and makes this whole journey called life worthwhile for you!
