The Kolden Report: Joseph Cambell was talking about you! July 10, 2012

to undisclosed recipients
Hi, kids!
 
I received a message from a good friend of mine and felt that it was powerful enough to share with all of you. 
My friend Grace wrote:  "I know. I know.  Joe is no longer with us.  But I still think he was talking about you.
 
A few months before Joseph Campbell died, Bill Moyers asked him this question in a PBS interview that would later be called "The Power of Myth."
BILL MOYERS: "Do you ever have the sense of... beng helped by hidden hands?"
JOSEPH CAMPBELL: "All the time. It is miraculous. I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time -- namely, that 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 that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open 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."
 
 
Let me just say that I DO feel like I am being guided in the direction I need to go.  Many thanks, Grace!
 
In other news, the art show yesterday was a total and complete blast!   A big thank you to all of you who came out to support me.  Your visit was greatly appreciated!  It was dandy finding myself surrounded by artisans of such caliber and  live music was just the cherry on top!
 
When I have a free moment (maybe in August) I will have a "normal report" for you.  Until then, bear with me! 
 
Coming events are:  Yard sale, Friday the 13th @0900.  Art in the park here in Wolf Point, Saturday the 14th  at 10:00.  Come see me!  And in the meantime.....Follow YOUR bliss!
