Your Hero’s Journey
Nietzsche was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea came to him of what he called "the love of your fate. If you bring love to that moment-not discouragement-you will find the strength is there. Any disaster you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else. People say that what we're seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking.
