Follow Your Bliss

Follow your bliss is a philosophy which American mythologist Joseph Campbell began sharing with his students during the 1970s. The phrase came from the sanskrit ‘Sat Chit Ananda’, Sat means being, Chit means consciousness and Ananda translates to joy or happiness.

Joseph Campbell advised his students to find what their bliss was and not be afraid to follow it.

if you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

This is my mantra for 2012, I’m going to follow my bliss and I hope you follow yours.
