Fantastic Friday Gratitude

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls." ~Joseph Campbell

The other night while attending a concert by Anoushka Shankar at a local college, I was reminded again of the wisdom of following your own bliss. That wonderfully talented young woman explored the musical similarities of Spanish flamenco with the vibrant, ancient forms of the Indian classical tradition. Truly a unique and beautiful combination. One of the best lessons from that performance was how her simple curiosity led to such wonderful musical creation that then she shared with the world. That act of sharing her creation brings greater understanding how much alike two distinctly different things can be. All who listen cross a bridge of understanding as well as the opportunity for a pleasurable musical experience. We can look at all of life in this way, to examine how much more alike we are than different from others. One person took a little bit of curiosity, followed their bliss and it has brought the world something beautiful. So my wish for the world today is to stay curious! Namaste!
