Follow Your Bliss

" Follow your bliss and doors will open where there were no doors before." Joseph Campbell

 The word bliss means "exalted happiness, rapture, ecstasy,and spiritual joy." Following your bliss means to know in your heart what you're here for, what your path is, and to walk it with integrity and commitment.

We're separated from our bliss when we arrange and live our life according to others rules and expectations. Knowing our self is tantamount to spiritual joy.

What is your bliss? What makes you feel like you're functioning at 100%? When are you the happiest?

 Some signs that you've found your bliss are:

1. You feel alive
2. You could talk forever about what you're doing
3. Time ceases to exist
4. Your creativity increases
5. You have higher thoughts
6. You feel like someone has turned a light on inside of you
7. You are excited to start your day.

No one can find your bliss for you. It's a serious undertaking and it requires being attentive to life. Many times our bliss transcends our mind so it's not always what we think it might be. Being present to life helps us to find and walk our unique path, and that is where our bliss lies. Be happy and walk in joy.

  1. Thank you for listing the signs of bliss. It may seem so silly to some, but having the actual signs pointed out to me allowed me to realize and embrace some recent bliss in my life. Thank you for giving me the words to describe and recognize something wonderful in my life.
