Note: The following four quotes are from Joseph Campbell (1904-1987) Interview with Bill Moyers
• If one has the guts, you might say, to follow the risk, life opens, opens, opens up all around the line.
• The way in which the “richness” of the quest builds up, builds up, and continues to build up – it’s terrific.
• I feel if one follows his bliss, the thing which really gets you deep in the gut, and that you feel is your life, doors will open up – they do! If you are on your way, even if no one has done it before, it will open up.
• If you follow your bliss, you will have your bliss, whether you have money or not. If you follow money, you may lose that money, and then you won’t even have that. The secure way is really the insecure way.
Comment: Part of being in your bliss is being in balance. When you enhance a quality, it floods into the space where negative qualities had lurked. Bliss and fear cannot live in the same place.
