Where is your bliss station?


[Sacred space] is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen. […]

Our life has become so economic and practical in its orientation that, as you get older, the claims of the moment upon you are so great, you hardly know where the hell you are, or what it is you intended. You are always doing something that is required of you. Where is your bliss station? You have to try to find it.

~ Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

  7. I haven’t been here for a couple of days, David, and I have to steal *everything*! Anyhoo, I loved Joseph Campbell and all the inroads he made into the Sacred.

  8. All need quiet time. A place that is devoid of man made technological sound; where the silence is deafening. In that silence one is aware of one’s conscience. And it is in our conscience, C.S. Lewis tells us, that God speaks to us. No greater bliss is there than hearing the voice of God.

  9. Love this, David. When Joseph Campbell said, “Follow Your Bliss”, it changed me. Three little words and I have forever changed. Having a bliss station is something I need to find!! Thank you, David! Cher xo
