“It’s actually a fact: your adventure is your adventure. And if it is yours, the world will open. Where other people would run into obstacles and blocks, it will open for you. You get on the road, and are thumbing your way. The car that stops has the people in it that are just the ones that can carry you that distance and give you advice and perhaps a five-dollar bill to carry you on the rest of the way.”
Joseph Campbell is such an inspiration to me, not only for his knowledge of ancient myths but simply his storyteller’s character. If you’ve never watched Power of Myth, watch it. It’s great.
But this quote is something I can relate to. It’s as if life moves with you. It’s eerie almost. And the more you let go and believe in yourself, life will somehow aid you.
