Prompt: What do you love to do? What brings you bliss?

“If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there the whole while, waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.”
— Joseph Campbell, professor of literature and myth



Joseph Campbell describes what he means by “follow your bliss.” He says, “We are having experiences all the time which may on occasion render some sense of this, a little intuition of where your bliss is. Grab it. No one can tell you what it is going to be. You have to learn to recognize your own depth.”


  • Bliss is more than just fun — though it certainly can be fun. It’s about reaching a state of so much joy that you are completely focused and immersed in what you’re doing or experiencing.
  • Describe a moment when you felt bliss. Where were you? Who were you with?
  • If nothing comes to mind, notice the next time you feel bliss and fully let yourself enjoy it. You deserve it! It’s one of the delights of life. It points you to your purpose.
