Awareness: Follow Your Bliss!

“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

While talking to a friend lately about her experiences as she is waking up, she mentioned that she just could not wait to get to the place where she felt “The Bliss”.

The Bliss is this place that you get a glimpse of when the blinders first fall off. All of a sudden life starts to shift, and you may have moments where things feel unsteady. However underneath all this is a feeling of clarity and well-being; and a place that makes your soul feel good.

But eventually the euphoria of the initial awareness slows down and guess what; life happens. The thing with becoming aware is that you start to really see everything, especially those things in your life that are glaringly standing in the way of you feeling that bliss and holding it.

And so The Purge begins. It’s that painful stage of awakening where there are things that your soul has to face, adjust and change. It’s a clearing of sorts, a cleansing of the spirit of the old you, ideals and frankly bad spiritual habits. It is the precedence of emergence of your True Spirit. A soul has to experience this to be able to get clear. It is when we are clear that the bliss starts to hold. No matter what we are facing, The Bliss is the ultimate state that factors into everything you will do.  

The state of your bliss dictates what you do and who you will hang around. It will be the force behind the work you do, and the things you choose to experience. As Joseph Campbell said above in that famous quotes that if you follow your bliss, "Doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.” When you are following your bliss you are in-sync with the rhythm of the Universe. Therefore pretty much everything starts to fall into place.

Near the conclusion of  the purging, inner fighting, and feeling like you have been running an uphill marathon against things that should have broken you, you will feel the coming of a breakthrough. It will come over you quietly, as you realize that beyond the purging and releasing something amazing is waiting for you. That is the bliss that holds and stays after you have passed all the tests of your Spirit.

How do you get to Bliss? Each and every day, celebrate the path that you are on. Do not look down the road wondering when you are going to get to that road sign. Stay focused on Now and learning all you can in to moment. Stay open, teachable and humble. Know that every single day that you stay on path, you listen to inner and higher guidance, you overcome what held you down the previous day, is unshackling your once mired spirit. All you have endured will pay off and the vindication and confirmation that you will receive is the peace that pervades all thought!

Everything unfolds all in due time. Keep sowing seeds of love and you will reap bountifully!

Wishing you a "blissed" rest of the week!

Live and Love in Awareness!
