The Hidden Hands that Helped Joseph Campbell

Renowned mythologist and writer Joseph Campbell has been famously quoted as saying, “Follow your bliss.”

He was once asked by his co-author of The Power of Myth, Bill Moyers, “Do you ever have the sense of being helped by hidden hands?”

Campbell replied, “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.”

I’m sure this has happened to you too. Not a day goes by when I’m not pinching myself at the weird phone call I get or the random conversation that brings about an opportunity or a piece of knowledge that proves to be an important step in following my own bliss.

Follow your bliss and watch the miracles unfold.

This is an excerpt from my book, “Invisible Genius: The Intuition Secrets of the World’s Greatest Leaders and How to Profit from Them”.  In it I delve deeper into ‘life purpose’ and how to identify and live it. You can download two free chapters of the book by clicking here.
