The problem is most of us forget we are free. We oftentimes feel as though we are prisoners in our own lives. A relationship can be exhilarating and freeing or constricting and debilitating. Friendships, jobs, careers – can nourish us or suck the life out of us. We forget we are the choosers in our lives.
Joseph Campbell taught – follow your bliss! Isn’t it the greatest thing when you are with another person and you could talk forever – common interests – the time flies by? Or, when you are in the middle of a creative endeavor or project – totally absorbed – a different reality? Pure joy.
Life is incredibly easy. What do you want? Do that. When we are in that place, we are truly a light in the world.
