    ITEM#: 3214760

    Joseph Campbell famously defined myth as ?other people's religion.” But he also said that one of the basic functions of myth is to help each individual through the journey of life, providing a sort of travel guide or map to reach fulfillment ? or, as he called it, bliss. For Campbell, many of the world's most powerful myths support the individual's heroic path toward bliss.

    In Pathways to Bliss, Campbell examines this personal, psychological side of myth. Like his classic best-selling books Myths to Live By and The Power of Myth, Pathways to Bliss draws from Campbell's popular lectures and dialogues, which highlight his remarkable storytelling and ability to apply the larger themes of world mythology to personal growth and the quest for transformation. Here he anchors mythology's symbolic wisdom to the individual, applying the most poetic mythical metaphors to the challenges of our daily lives.

    Campbell dwells on life's important questions. Combining cross-cultural stories with the teachings of modern psychology, he examines the ways in which our myths shape and enrich our lives and shows how myth can help each of us truly identify and follow our bliss.

      Most people that I meet live their life to die. Mr Campbell has outlined a path to live our life to live. Sometimes very simple and sometimes very complex, he has woven an entertaining and interesting perspective on the interworkings of life. Some of his insights can effect our whole being " Eternity is not the past or the future, it is now." I highly recommend this book for yourself or as a wonderful gift to a friend or family member.
