** Bliss = Spiritual Joy **

Sometimes it takes a while for things to sink in, ya know?! In my previous post, I went on and on about the "Twilight Zone" moments I've been having. Daisy left a comment and referred to them as "cosmic encouragement", which is a fabulous name, don't ya think?! Thank you, Daisy! So, after reading her words, it hit me! I'm FOLLOWING MY BLISS AND THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO (AND FOR) ME!

Duh! I even put that at the top of my blog: Writer-Humorist-Bliss Follower.

What can I say? Sometimes I wonder about that crowbar incident. You'll have to read my book to find out what that means!

* I posted the following poem on April 21st, but I think it's well worth posting again. Have a wonderful, blissful day, everyone! *

"Follow Your Bliss.

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.

When you can see that,

you begin to meet people

who are in the field of your bliss,

and they open the 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 follow your bliss,

doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else."

-- Joseph Campbell
