A Quote by Joseph Campbell on eternity, experience, heaven, and life

Eternity has nothing to do with the hereafter. . . This is it. . . If you don't get it here, you won't get it anywhere. The experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life. Heaven is not the place to have the experience; here's the place to have the experience.

A Quote by Joseph Campbell on bliss, kindness, and life

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track, which has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.

A Quote by Joseph Campbell on acceptance, achievement, adventure, conquest, courage, death, experience, fear, heroism, joy, life, and yielding

The conquest of the fear of death is the recovery of life's joy. One can experience an unconditional affirmation of life only when one has accepted death, not as contrary to life, but as an aspect of life. Life in its becoming is always shedding death, and on the point of death. The conquest of fear yields the courage of life. That is the cardinal initiation of every heroic adventure - fearlessness and achievement.
