Naturally Blissful

 

This Los Angeles Times article by Peter Barsocchini talks about one of the biggest talk show/game show hosts in American media history, Merv Griffin.

That happiness, that sense of accomplishment, comes from Griffin’s chosen path: a path of Bliss.

He might not have known it from the beginning, but Merv was living proof of Campbell’s studies on Bliss and Fulfillment.
