it is merely the absence of light.

Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.

where there were no doors before.
- Joseph Campbell

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

who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.

and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
