"What will they think of me?"
must be put aside for bliss.
- 'All life,' said the Buddha, 'is sorrowful'; and so, indeed, it is. Life consuming life: that is the essence of its being, which is forever a becoming. 'The world,' said the Buddha, 'is an ever-burning fire.' And so it is. And that is what one has to affirm, with a yea! a dance! a knowing, solemn, stately dance of the mystic bliss beyond pain that is at the heart of every mythic rite.
- But to enjoy the world requires something more than mere good health and good spirits; for this world, as we all now surely know, is horrendous. "All life," said the Buddha, "is sorrowful"; and so, indeed, it is. Life consuming life: that is the essence of its being, which is forever a becoming. "The world," said the Buddha, "is an ever-burning fire." And so it is. And that is what one has to affirm, with a yea! a dance! a knowing, solemn, stately dance of the mystic bliss beyond pain that is at the heart of every mythic rite.
- Moyers: Do you ever have the sense 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 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.
- 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 you ought to be living is the one you are living ... I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
- Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.
- I have a firm belief in this now, not only in terms of my own experience, but in knowing the experiences of other people. When you follow your bliss, and by bliss I mean the deep sense of being in it, and doing what the push is out of your own existence—it may not be fun, but it’s your bliss and there’s bliss behind pain too.
- I think the best thing I can say is to follow your bliss. If your bliss is just your fun and your excitement, you’re on the wrong track. I mean, you need instruction. Know where your bliss is. And that involves coming down to a deep place in yourself
- If you follow your bliss, you will always have your bliss, money or not. If you follow money, you may lose it, and you will have nothing.
- My general formula for my students is “Follow your bliss.” Find where it is, and don’t be afraid to follow it.
- My general formula for my students is "Follow your bliss." Find where it is, and don’t be afraid to follow it. . . . If the work you are doing is the work that you chose to do because you are enjoying it, that’s it. But if you think, "Oh no, I couldn’t do that!" that’s the dragon locking you in. "No, no, I couldn’t be a writer," or "No, no, I couldn’t possibly be doing what So-and-so is doing."
- My word for young people now who ask me is, follow your bliss. It'll come. Nobody's ever been on that road before, and so, where you didn't know there were doors, there are not only doors but palaces
- You follow your bliss, you’ll have your bliss, whether you have money or not. If you follow money, you may lose the money, and then you don’t even have that. The secure way is really the insecure way and the way in which the richness of the quest accumulates is the right way. .
- The way to find out about your happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you really are happy -- not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what I call "following your bliss."
- To find your own way is to follow your own bliss. This involves analysis, watching yourself and seeing where the real deep bliss is––not the quick little excitement, but the real, deep, life-filling bliss
- 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.

- How do you find the divine power in yourself? The word enthusiasm means 'filled with a god,' that's what it means. So what makes you enthusiastic? Follow it. . . .And you know what my answer would be –– where your enthusiasm is. So I have a little word: follow your bliss. The bliss is the message of God to yourself. That's where your life is.
