I was reading the Creative Chatter blog today ( and came across a piece about following your bliss. It was a quote by US folklorist, Joseph Campbell and runs like this:

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.

Mmmmm - the jury's out on that one. What do you do when your bliss keeps belting you around the head with a length of 2x4? I consider creating to be my 'bliss' whether it be creating friendships, romance, peace, artwork, etc. But it sure aint as comfortable as this guy implies.
