"[Freedom, individualism, authenticity and being yourself:] I wanted only to try to live in accord with the [dreams and] promptings which came from my true self [which didn't hurt the physical person or property of another].

[Quote No.42392] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself:] The best way to define a man's character [and 'destiny'] would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude [and vision, so long as it did not hurt the physical person or property of another] in which, when it came upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: 'This is the real me'!" - William James

[Quote No.42828] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"Our natural passions [clarified and expressed in our dreams] are few in number; they are the means to [our individual fulfillment and fullest] freedom, they tend to self-preservation [of and the full expression of our individual uniqueness, our individualism. They should be pursued so long as they don't hurt the physical person or property of another or involve initiating force, coercion or fraud]." - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

[Quote No.42918] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself, so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] If you do follow your bliss [your unique interests, enthusiasms, dreams, etc.] you put yourself on a kind of track [your 'hero's journey'] that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living [your 'destiny'] is the one you are living." - Joseph Campbell
(1904 – 1987), American professor, writer, and orator best known for his work in the fields of comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's seminal work, 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces' (1949), discusses what Campbell called the monomyth — the cycle of the journey of the hero — a term that he borrowed directly from Joyce's 'Finnegans Wake'. His work, 'The Masks of God', written between 1962 and 1968, in four-volumes covers mythology from around the world, from ancient to modern. Where 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces' focused on the commonality of mythology (the 'elementary ideas'), 'The Masks of God' books focus upon historical and cultural variations the monomyth takes on (the 'folk ideas'). In other words, where 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces' draws perhaps more from psychology, 'The Masks of God' books draw more from anthropology and history. The four volumes of 'The Masks of God' are as follows: 'Primitive Mythology', 'Oriental Mythology', 'Occidental Mythology', and 'Creative Mythology'. At the time of his death, Campbell was in the midst of working upon a large-format, lavishly illustrated series entitled 'Historical Atlas of World Mythology'. This series was to build on Campbell's idea, first presented in 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces', that myth evolves over time through four stages: -1- 'The Way of the Animal Powers'—the myths of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers which focus on shamanism and animal totems; -2- 'The Way of the Seeded Earth'—the myths of Neolithic, agrarian cultures which focus upon a mother goddess and associated fertility rites; -3- 'The Way of the Celestial Lights'—the myths of Bronze Age city-states with pantheons of gods ruling from the heavens, led by a masculine god-king, and; -4- 'The Way of Man'—religion and philosophy as it developed after the Axial Age (c. 6th century BC), in which the mythic imagery of previous eras was made consciously metaphorical, reinterpreted as referring to psycho-spiritual, not literal-historical, matters. This transition is evident in the East in Buddhism, Vedanta, and philosophical Taoism; and in the West in the Mystery Cults, Platonism, Christianity and Gnosticism. Other well-known works of his are 'Myths to Live By' (1972), 'Pathways to Bliss: Mythology and Personal Transformation' (2004) and 'A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living' (1991). Quote from his book, 'Reflections on the Art of Living'.

[Quote No.42924] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"I greatly admire the psychologist Abraham Maslow. . . his psychological experiments had shown that people live for [set goals and structure their lives to meet, in order of priority, a hierarchy of needs]. . . survival, security, personal relationships, prestige, and self-development [sometimes called the peak experience of self-actualization]." - Joseph Campbell

[Quote No.42926] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] Wherever the hero may wander, whatever he may do, he is ever in the presence of his own essence - for he has the perfected eye to see. There is no separateness. In the absence of an effective general mythology, each of us has his private, unrecognized, rudimentary, yet secretly potent pantheon of dreams." - Joseph Campbell

[Quote No.42936] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] There are something like 18 billion cells in the brain alone. There are no two brains alike; there are no two hands alike; there are no two human beings alike. You can take your instructions and your guidance from others, but you must find your own path, just like one of Arthur’s knights seeking the [Holy] Grail in the forest... What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfilment of that which is potential in each of us...it is an adventure to bring to fulfilment your gift to the world, which is yourself [...your best self, by honestly and peacefully 'following your bliss' - 'doing what you love' - the things that fascinate you, you do well and you dream about; the things you would still do even if you won a huge lottery; the things you 'lose yourself and time in' - what positive psychologist, Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, called 'flow'...the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity]...The way to find out about your happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy... not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy.... Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what I call 'following your bliss'." - Joseph Campbell

[Quote No.42950] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[When we get in closer touch with our unique inner situation and desires, we will be able to dream bigger and unleash our potential for personal growth and bliss, as well as our contribution to society, because we will realise that we are unnecessarily limiting ourselves, in fact, that] We are standing on a whale [but only] fishing for minnows." - Joseph Campbell

[Quote No.42954] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[Moyers: Unlike heroes such as Prometheus or Jesus, we're not going on our journey to save the world but to save ourselves. Campbell:] But in doing that you save the world. The influence of a vital person vitalizes, there's no doubt about it. The world without spirit is a wasteland. People have the notion of saving the world by shifting things [i.e. money, property, etc] around, changing the rules [philosophy, government, laws, etc], and who's on top [leaders in politics, business, etc], and so forth. No, no! Any world is a valid world if it's alive [with people pursuing their bliss in freedom from force, coercion and fraud]. The thing to do is to bring life [honest, peaceful bliss] to it, and the only way to do that is to find in your own case where the life [honest, peaceful bliss for you] is and become alive yourself. [Set an example. Like Mahatma Gandhi said, 'We must be the change we wish to see in the world.']" - Joseph Campbell
(1904 – 1987), American professor, writer, and orator best known for his work in the fields of comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's seminal work, ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ (1949), discusses what Campbell called the monomyth — the cycle of the journey of the hero — a term that he borrowed directly from Joyce's ‘Finnegans Wake’. His work, ‘The Masks of God’, written between 1962 and 1968, in four-volumes covers mythology from around the world, from ancient to modern. Where ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ focused on the commonality of mythology (the ‘elementary ideas’), ‘The Masks of God’ books focus upon historical and cultural variations the monomyth takes on (the ‘folk ideas’). In other words, where ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ draws perhaps more from psychology, ‘The Masks of God’ books draw more from anthropology and history. The four volumes of ‘The Masks of God’ are as follows: ‘Primitive Mythology’, ‘Oriental Mythology’, ‘Occidental Mythology’, and ‘Creative Mythology’. At the time of his death, Campbell was in the midst of working upon a large-format, lavishly illustrated series entitled ‘Historical Atlas of World Mythology’. This series was to build on Campbell’s idea, first presented in ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’, that myth evolves over time through four stages: -1- ‘The Way of the Animal Powers’—the myths of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers which focus on shamanism and animal totems; -2- ‘The Way of the Seeded Earth’—the myths of Neolithic, agrarian cultures which focus upon a mother goddess and associated fertility rites; -3- ‘The Way of the Celestial Lights’—the myths of Bronze Age city-states with pantheons of gods ruling from the heavens, led by a masculine god-king, and; -4- ‘The Way of Man’—religion and philosophy as it developed after the Axial Age (c. 6th century BC), in which the mythic imagery of previous eras was made consciously metaphorical, reinterpreted as referring to psycho-spiritual, not literal-historical, matters. This transition is evident in the East in Buddhism, Vedanta, and philosophical Taoism; and in the West in the Mystery Cults, Platonism, Christianity and Gnosticism. Other well-known works of his are ‘Myths to Live By’ (1972), ‘Pathways to Bliss: Mythology and Personal Transformation’ (2004) and ‘A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living’ (1991). Quote from ‘The Power of Myth’ (1988) which later in 2001, under the same name as the book, became a PBS television series with Bill Moyers; p.183.

[Quote No.42962] Need Area: Mind > Imagine
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] [One of Campbell's most identifiable, most quoted and arguably most misunderstood sayings was his admonition to ‘follow your bliss.’ He saw this not merely as a mantra, but as a helpful guide to the individual along the hero journey that each of us walks through life. He derived this idea from the Hindu religion’s ‘Upanishads’:] Now, I came to this idea of bliss because in Sanskrit, which is the great spiritual language of the world, there are three terms that represent the brink, the jumping-off place to the ocean of transcendence: ‘Sat-Chit-Ananda’. The word 'Sat' means being. 'hit' means consciousness.'Ananda' means bliss or rapture. I thought, ‘I don't know whether my consciousness is proper consciousness or not; I don't know whether what I know of my being is my proper being or not; but I do know where my rapture is. So let me hang on to rapture, and that will bring me both my consciousness and my being. I think it worked. [Campbell began sharing this idea with students during his lectures in the 1970s. By the time that ‘The Power of Myth’ was aired in 1988, six months following Campbell's death, ‘Follow your bliss' (as in 'Do what you love passionately') was a philosophy that resonated deeply with the American public — both religious and secular. During his later years, when some students took him to be encouraging hedonism, Campbell is reported to have grumbled, ‘I should have said, 'Follow your blisters.’ ’ (albert-ellis.blogspot.com)]" - Joseph Campbell

"[Freedom, individualism, authenticity, being yourself so long as it doesn't hurt another's physical person or property:] All Fords are exactly alike, but no two men are just alike. Every new life is a new thing under the sun; there has never been anything just like it before, never will be again. A young man ought to get that idea about himself; he should look for the single spark of individuality that makes him different from other folks, and develop that for all he is worth. Society and schools may try to iron it out of him; their tendency is to put it all in the same mold, but I say don't let that spark be lost; it is your only real claim to importance!" - Henry Ford
