Real Bliss

Real magic happens when you follow your bliss. Just make sure it’s real. If it’s a bliss that comes from deep in your soul, then it’s the real deal. It’s authentic.

A genuine bliss arises out of that sacred place. Inside your true self. Real bliss is inspiring. If your bliss is real, then it’s a win win for all concerned.

Make real magic. Follow your bliss.

But. There’s always a but. Here’s the second one. The win win may not be apparent at first. That’s why you have to persevere. It’s why the mystics concentrate on mastering their thoughts, emotions and physical energy levels. You need to do the same. Because you’ll be recruiting and then collaborating with all three if you want to experience the magic of following your bliss.

In the ancient tradition of alchemy, something magical happens when elements in opposition are brought together and unified. Transformation occurs when positive and negative forces coalesce. And inspiration is the result. It’s the magic you need to actualise your bliss.

Joseph Campbell coined the term, follow your bliss. He suggested 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. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

Following your bliss leads you into the home of your true self. You don’t need to change your exterior circumstances to do it.

Start from the inside and work your way out. It begins when you change your mind and commit to it.
