Hi Chris, Joseph Campbell, Richard Pryor flashbacks, & now, Al Stewart. That's good work for a short week! A great listen..
Following your bliss is about making decisions from the heart—and the genitals. When I am turned on—something or something lights me up—I am aroused on all levels. I am mentally inspired, emotionally open, and I feel erotically charged. Joseph Campbell spoke of the idea of “following your bliss.” He suggested that when you use your deep desire and pleasure as your navigation guide, your life will take unexpected and amazing turns. If you dare. I am often asked how I came to do what I do. When I look back at my life, I can see how I created my own best self-education by choosing to do what I felt like doing, when and where I felt like doing it. By choosing the next right thing in this very moment. I pursued the things I was most interested in the time: Method acting in London, surfing in Byron Bay, Australia, moving to Bali with my young son—and all of those events played strategic roles in the development of what I do now as a vocation. I trusted that which gave me pleasure and got me excited, ...

An exception might be when used in a literary sense (i.e. Joseph Campbell). But in many of those cases, "protagonist" is a better term, too.
Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths. Joseph Campbell
“The black moment is the moment when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light.” – Joseph Campbell
"In the field of consciousness research—and also in physics and astronomy—we are breaking past the cause-and-effect, mechanistic way of interpreting things. In the biological sciences, there is a vitalism coming in that goes much further toward positing a common universal consciousness of which our brain is simply an organ. Consciousness does not come from the brain. The brain is an organ of consciousness. It focuses consciousness and pulls it in and directs it through a time and space field. But the antecedent of that is the universal consciousness of which we are all just a part." Joseph Campbell in Mythic World's, Modern Words, p. 286
I don't have to have faith, I have experience. Joseph Campbell
"People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. That's what it's all finally about." – Joseph Campbell

"I have seen the training of artists in this country and in Europe. They are trained only in the craft. They are given techniques for rendering something, but they do not know what to do with the techniques. I know many of them who just cracked up. Their art technique becomes a wall they cannot penetrate, so they try to think of anecdotes and narratives to render that show off their technique. They are so loaded with sociology, that they think they do not have an art object if there is not some kind of lesson in there for fixing the world or themselves. But, in fact, an art object by definition is 'divinely superfluous beauty.' Do you see in this the projecting power of maya and the revealing power? As long as the motifs of desire and loathing are moving you, it's the projecting aspect." -Joseph Campbell, 'A Joseph Campbell Companion'

“We're not on our journey to save the world but to save ourselves. But in doing that you save the world. The influence of a vital person vitalizes.” ― Joseph Campbell
If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you. - Joseph Campbell

He also discusses the knowledge that ancient peoples held: that their images were not the god itself, but only a mask which was used to make the transcendent visible. He describes the failure of reading metaphor as fact, mistaking the mask for the real thing, and how this tendency has shaped the world around us.

“Suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. And life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and it’s spectacular.” –Joseph Campbell
Follow Your Bliss Author Joseph Campbell often talked about “following your bliss.” I heard of a bus driver in Chicago who does just that. He sings while he drives. That’s right… sings! And I don’t mean he sings softly to himself either. He sings so that the whole bus can hear! All day long he drives and sings. He was once interviewed on Chicago television. He said that he is not actually a bus driver. “I’m a professional singer,” he asserted. “I only drive the bus to get a captive audience every single day.” His “bliss” is not driving a bus, though that may be a source of enjoyment for some people. His bliss is singing. And the supervisors at the Chicago Transit Authority are perfectly happy about the whole arrangement. You see, people line up to ride his bus. They even let other busses pass by so they can ride with the “singing bus driver.” They love it! Here is a man who believes he knows why he was put here on earth. For him, it is to make people happy. And ...

"Mythology may, in a real sense, be defined as other people’s religion. And religion may, in a real sense, be understood as a popular misunderstanding of mythology." Joseph Campbell, Thou Art That
The Cosmic Plenum: God-Imaging, Models, and Science Theory God-imaging has long been around, boasting a long history: through animism, matriarchy, hierarchical polytheism, tribal monotheism, universal monotheism to individuation. So one has to ponder far beyond superficial thinking about *why* we have so long clung to this seemingly eternal habit of ours to conjure and develop images of That which we call "God." So let's look a little at this phenomenon we call "religion." Freud considered religion to be the universal obsessional neurosis of humanity--he stressed that humans projected their wishes, especially his great need for a protecting father, into an all-powerful divine Providence. Whereas Jung took the view that the libido was simply psychic energy, and that the material form in which psychic energy presents itself is fantasy. As Jung's theories evolved, the transformer of libido became known as the archetype; the archetypes appear in dreams and fantasies as numinous images. Jung came to think of t ...

I think so. I kind remember this is a "Hero's Journey" kind of thing in a Joseph Campbell way.
Just got accosted by two people from some religious organization. Referencing Joseph Campbell basically shut them down.
no, I don't want to do that. This is more of a Joseph Campbell-esque hero's journey for me. I don't see that in my future.

Psychology and End-Times Mysticism August 14, 2014 BY: DR.DAVID CLOUD   The following is an excerpt from our new book The God of End-Times Mysticism:   Psychology has been permeated with mysticism since its inception in the 19th century.    Carl Jung   Carl Jung (1875-1961), the founder of analytical psychology, has been called “the psychologist of the 21st century” (Merill Berger, The Wisdom of the Dreams, front cover.” Jung (pronounced Young) has been influential, not only in society at large, but also in the New Age movement and within almost all aspects of Christianity. Jung has influenced both modernists and evangelicals. His writings are influential within the contemplative movement. He has been promoted by Paul Tillich, Morton Kelsey, John Sanford, Thomas Moore, Joseph Campbell, John Spong, Richard Foster, Agnes Sanford, and Gary Thomas, to name a few. Jung’s psychological typing provides the underpinning for the Personality Profiling part of Rick Warren’s SHAPE program, which is u ...

A passage that reads loud and clear from The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers: "The story that we have in the West, so far as it is based on the Bible, is based on a view of the universe that belongs to the first millennium B.C. It does not accord with our concept either of the universe or of the dignity of man. It belongs entirely somewhere else. We have today to learn to get back into accord with the wisdom of nature and realize again our brotherhood with the animals and with the water and the sea."

Hard to believe that Matt will be graduating from Riverside HS tomorrow. It has been great having just him home these past two years to entertain Dan and me. I know I will miss him at unexpected times when he leaves for Ohio State. He has chosen his friends well (I will miss them, too, so please stop by when you are in town!), worked hard and made time for fun. While he may not know precisely what he'll be doing, job wise, for the rest of his life, he will continue to have a myriad of experiences from which he can choose his path. I'm not the least bit worried. That competitiveness and work ethic will take him wherEVER he chooses to go! Choosing the path.I would tell Matt to "follow your bliss" as per Joseph Campbell. That has never failed me, but has gotten me into periods of "uncomfortable life" when I did not follow! The other thing I would tell him is that it's good to make your decisions with your heart and your head in sync--those are likely to be good decisions. Matt's heart is a big part of ...
BLUES FOR ALLAH: SHABDA-DRIVEN ROCK & ROLL (with audio link to the concert that changed my life) “They’re a band beyond description, Like Jehovah’s favorite choir. People joining hand in hand While the Music plays the band Lord, they’re setting us on fire!” - John Barlow/Bob Weir “Spirit is something that no one destroys.” - Traffic Ever since someone first banged two rocks together, we have been aware of the power of music to transform us and lift us into transcendental states of awareness. This transportative quality of music works both individually and collectively. The renowned scholar and mythologist Joseph Campbell noted on more than one occasion that collective musical experiences often fill the same function traditionally reserved for religious services – i.e. to give people a sense of unity with both each other and the Divine. As he remarked to Blair Jackson about his experience at a Grateful Dead concert: “(W)hen you see 8,000 kids all going up in the air together . . . ...

This is an extract for one of the chapters from the book I am writing. An early draft and needs reworking. "Joseph Campbell in the “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” describes Gwion’s period in Caridwen’s womb as the “land under the waves.” This land is Bala Lake and where Caridwen and her husband Tegid lives. The can be found in Merionethshire, north Wales and is the largest lake in Wales. Bala was created from a well that overflowed cover the whole of the town of Bala. There is a strong similarity between Bala Lake and the Well of Segais. The Well of Segais is associated with the river Boyne in Ireland and the Goddess Boinne. The well was owned by Nechtan, in one version of the myth Boinne went over to the lake to gaze on it, by gazing on it would cause the well to burst, three spurts of water hit Boinne. Hitting one of her eyes, one of her feel and one of her hands. The well carried on flowing until it reach the sea creating the river Boyne. In another version he walks around the well three . ...

My heart is burdened with sorrow . for tonight a dear friend passed. Michael Barrett, JD,MD - a lawyer first and later a physician - was a true and long time friend. Although a lawyer for many years, it was clear that Michael was born to be a physician - a healer. He left the law and, following so many dedicated years of medical education, he reached his life's ambition ... and he was happy in the medical profession. Michael introduced me to the Joseph Campbell philosophy: " Follow Your Bliss". Such an unusual topic that always seemed to surround our time together. Michael found his bliss in his wife of 28 years - Kathy - and his daughter - Tessa Barrett - a world class runner. I recall so often being astounded by Michael's grasp of history and, in reality, of almost everything. Yet he imparted that intellect with great humor - another gift to us. I was with Michael two evenings ago. He knew his fate. And yet, he left me and another friend laughing. He simply would not allow us to share in sorrow in this ...

The good life is one hero journey after another. Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure. You are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then, if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There's always the possibility of a fiasco. But there's also the possibility of bliss. Joseph Campbell
How wonderful to live in Wigtown, Scotland's Nation Book Town. Went in to the town today to see a good friend and have a cup of hot chocolate and a scone in his Beltie Books cafe.

i was into comparative mythology (Joseph Campbell) from early on, so this is pretty cool.
William T. Vollmann, Neil Young, Danica McKellar (a.k.a. Winnie Cooper), Joseph Campbell, Virginia Woolf, John Steinbeck, Idi Amin Dada, and William S. Burroughs and the rest of the Friday afternoon new arrivals crew are just kicking it old school style on top of our piano. Instead of letting them loiter all delinquent-like in our store, how about taking one of them home today? Take-out pizza, a couple 40s, some Philip Roth and Hermann Hesse—sounds like the perfect Friday night to me.
'Myths' are 'stories', but are not utterly false fairy-tales. Myths and stories have their truth. They are 'true', just not literally true. To see myth or story as utterly false is to miss the point of myth and story, and to ignore what it is pointing to. I would highly recommend reading Joseph Campbell's books, "The Power of Myth" and "The Hero's Journey" in order to reflect further on this idea. They are both excellent. They illuminate and appreciate the value and human richness of stories and myths and beliefs in a very balanced way.
Truth: “There is no way you can use the word “reality” without quotation marks around it.”. -Joseph Campbell.

To those who have no interest in spirituality or are anti-religious or dislike Christians, I pity them. The whole thing is what life is about. Some are agnostics and cannot decide if the divine exists. Some are atheists and assume that divinity does not exist. I have no problem with those who think that way, but I know the divine exists because I can perceive it in everything around me and haev experienced what happens when I trust in the divine. Living in gratitude and love, opens doors, attracts love, attracts providence, attracts opportunities and wards off dangers. Ignoring the Divine, brings nothing. As Lennon said, back in the 1970s, "Love is the answer and you know that, for sure" and to paraphrase Joseph Campbell: every moment is eternit ...

George Gilmore George Gilmore was born in Portadown. He grew up in Dublin where he joined the Irish Volunteers in 1915. Gilmore partook in the Easter Rising of 1916, the War of Independence and the Civil War when he was Officer in Command of the South County Dublin Battalion of the IRA. Gilmore, like his brothers Charlie and Harry, was imprisoned many times during 1919-1923 and once escaped from Mountjoy Gaol with Joseph Campbell. On November 25th, 1925 Gilmore lead an IRA unit who effected the escape of 19 republican prisoners from Mountjoy Gaol. He was arrested a year later and sentenced to eighteen months in Mountjoy Gaol during which time he refused to wear prison clothes in demand of political status. It is believed that Gilmore travelled to Russia to seek military training for IRA officers in 1930. A year later he was arrested in Dublin and sentenced to five years imprisonment under the Treason and Firearms Act but was released in the General Amnesty of 1932. Shortly afterwards, in August, 1932, Gil ...

A word of warning... I am giving a presentation to the second grade at Ozark North Elementary tomorrow. We'll be covering Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey. Hopefully it will be educational. Hopefully it will be entertaining. So, if your second grader comes home tomorrow telling you why Bugs Bunny is like the African god Anansi, or why Jesus is like Luke Skywalker, you'll know who to blame.

Friends and readers, more of Joseph Campbell reflections... "It's what Goethe said in Faust, but which (George) Lucas has dressed in modern idiom- the message that technology is not going to save us. Our computers, our tools, our machines are not enough. We have to rely on our intuition, our true being." "One of the many distinctions between the celebrity and the hero, is that one lives only for self while the other acts to redeem society." "One of our problems today is that we are not well acquainted with the literature of the spirit. We're interested in the news of the day and the problems of the hour." "…This whole problem of the difference between the mystical experience and the psychological crack-up: The difference is that the one who cracks up is drowning in the water in which the mystic swims. You have to be prepared for this experience." (Discussing the Great Seal of the US Dollar Bill): "When you're down on the lower levels of this pyramid, you will be either on one side or the other. But wh . ...
