“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.”
-- Eckhart Tolle
This has been something on my mind these last couple of days. What limits us from following our 'bliss' as Joseph Campbell called it? It feels as though many of us are dulled to being receptive to our own intuitions, which tell us what is wrong or right for us - and only us. At the same time, the culture of fear and scarcity abounds, and keeps us from joyously taking courageous risks.
The full quote from Joseph Campbell, which speaks so loudly for me right now is as follows:
“Follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”
