Sacred play

“The world is not condemned or shunned as a fall,
but voluntarily entered as a game or dance, wherein
the spirit plays.”

Joseph Campbell

I strongly recommend this post:


To live in sacred space

…is to live in a symbolic environment
where spiritual life is possible,
where everything around you
speaks of exaltation of the spirit

Joseph Campbell

We’re in a freefall into future

We don’t know where we’re going.

Things are changing so fast, and always when you’re going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. And all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a voluntary act. It’s a very interesting shift of perspective and that’s all it is… joyful participation in the sorrows and everything changes.”

Follow your bliss

…and the Universe will open doors where there were only walls.

– Joseph Campbell

The love of your fate

Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, ‘This is what I need.’ It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment—not discouragement—you will find the strength is there.

Get ready for the journey…

“The hero journey is one of the universal patterns through which the radiance shows brightly. What I think is that a good life is one hero journey after another. Over and over again you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There’s always the possibility of a fiasco.

But there’s also the possibility of bliss.”

There are no two human beings alike

You can take your guidance and instruction from others,
but you must find your own path.
