Follow your bliss

Moyers: Do you ever have this sense when you are following your bliss, as I have at moments, of being helped by hidden hands?

Campbell: All the time. It is miraculous. I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time -- namely, that 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 the field of your 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.

-- Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyors, The Power of Myth
I've applied to graduate school to study acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. I have an admissions interview in a couple of weeks. If I am accepted I'll start school in January.

It's hard for me to see how I'm going to be able to go to school full time for the next 4 years, continue working part time, continue being a mom full time, and all of the other things that go along with life. But acupuncture is the best job in the world, and I whole hearty feel that this is what I'm meant to do. So I'll have faith that somehow everything will work out while I follow my bliss.
