If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Transcending

To recognize one’s own insanity is, of course, the arising of sanity, the beginning of healing and transcendence. ― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

How does the ordinary person come to the transcendent? For a start, I would say, study poetry. Learn how to read a poem. You need not have the experience to get the message, or at least some indication of the message. It may come gradually.― Joseph Campbell, Thou Art That: Transforming Religious Metaphor

Any great art work … revives and readapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world – the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air. ― Leonard Bernstein

We are all butterflies. Earth is our chrysalis.  LeeAnn Taylor

An awake heart is like a sky that pours light. ― Hafizsky1
