Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls. Joseph Campbell
Meditation: It takes courage to find one’s own way. It is easier to follow the crowd or to do what is expected. If we follow our bliss, we follow our heart. We follow that which calls us by name. We take the risk to be laughed at, misunderstood or judged for being different. However, if we do not allow those voices to stop us, but we lean into that which feels most life giving and life affirming, then we will find the life we could have never designed, we could have never envisioned ourselves. As we follow step by step this journey into our bliss as God’s purpose for our life or God’s calling on our life…we might be doubtful, fearful and stuck at times. However, if we continue to seek, if we do not stop knocking, we will find our bliss… or it will find us.
Prayer: Creative God, you piece together our life like a mosaic. You have known the complete picture all along, while we could only see little pieces, small glimpses of that which You have in store for us. We are deeply grateful that You want to help us put those pieces together along the way and also in the end. Our life might never be perfect, but it will be beautiful. Despite detours, despite broken pieces, despite times where it feels like nothing is coming together: You will open the door. In Your presence we will find our bliss, and we will be made whole. Amen
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
