Joseph Campbell

“Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an end… The exclusivism of there being only one way in which we can be saved, the idea that there is a single religious group that is in sole possession of the truth—that is the world as we know it that must pass away. What is the kingdom? It lies in our realization of the ubiquity of the divine presence in our neighbors, in our enemies, in all of us.”

The kingdom lies in our humanity!

Joseph Campbell was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer. He coined the phrase ‘follow your bliss’ – often used as a summary of his philosophy towards living. See the ‘on hope’ update for a bit of an insight into this idea (it’s very profound and totally awesome/inspirational).
