Learning How to … Live Your Truth

Did you ever read something that felt so right it stopped you in your tracks?  Then you scrambled to save it, jotted down the author or the title, or copied the link, or copied the entire piece to a word document you would not lose it?

I did all those things when I read it a few months ago while at work.  The company I work for (Liberty Mutual Insurance) has an internal website that employees can use to create online communities.  I was viewing an online community called Mindfulness@Liberty, when I came across a post, on a website called mrsmindfulness.com.  It was posted by Mellie.  You can check it out at the end of my post, where I put the link.

The post asks (and answers) 3 questions:

  • What stops people from living a life that’s true to them?
  • What are values and why are they so important?
  • How to discover your core values in six simple steps?

It also presents a short piece by Joseph Campbell, which I love, entitled Follow Your Bliss.

“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 that 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.”
–Joseph Campbell
