Advice from Joseph Campbell

When asked how an ordinary person could preserve his sense of the mythic {the imaginary / the dream} when most feel too besieged by the everyday claims of the bills and the mortgage, Joseph Campbell answered:

You must have a place to which you can go, in your heart, your mind, or your house, almost every day, where you do not know what you owe anyone or what anyone owes you. You must have a place you can go to where you do not know what your work is or who you work for, where you do not know who you are married to or who your children are.”
