are universal in scope they are also timeless. There is an eternal
quality to the ancient mythological tales and characters. They live
within us today. Their struggles go on today, only with different
environments. Get in touch with your own personal hero and emulate
those qualities. See yourself as courageously conquering your weaknesses.
Imagine that you have overcome your fears and self doubt. As you
strengthen your own imaginative qualities, these attributes will
manifest in your life.
of Campbell's Power of Myth is that of "Sacrifice and Bliss."
He encourages his pupils: "I always tell my students to follow their
bliss - where the deep sense of being is from, and where your body
and soul want to go. When you have that feeling, then stay with
it, and don't let anyone throw you off...and doors will open where
you didn't know they were going to be."
a powerful statement, "doors will open where you didnt
know they were going to be." And yet its true. Creative
work is an act of love, and if expressed from that feeling of joy
will take you into areas you only dream about. Dont underestimate
your own powerful creative desires and where they are pulling you.
Allow them to blossom and you will find that life lived creatively
is much more enchanting that you ever thought possible.
