    Thanks for sharing. Joseph Campbell use to say "Fallow your bliss". Our culture is very far from the message but everyone has a choice to have a simple , creative and meaningful life. Good video

    Wow! Outstanding video... Loved the narration

    Much appreciate the words of Alan Watts, as well as your video. I forwarded this to my college age sons. Hope they take the message to heart.

    Thank you Bill - I appreciate you watching it as usual. You're the man.

    Sunny - Thanks! The narration is what made me want to make a video. Pretty powerful stuff. I just had to put in some music and some visuals.

    Wiel - I'm glad. It's definitely a good message to take. Like I said, powerful stuff indeed.

    Excellent! It helps stir the pot for me personally and professionally as I work at a university molding young minds Too often I see students stuck because they lose sight of that bliss. Thanks for this, JD.

    BTW,(this violates the anonymity afforded by the internet, so ignore if you like) what is your bliss? What are you going to be when you grow up?

    Nice vid. I sent the link to my daughter and son in college, but hope they don't follow the words of Alan Watts.

    If my kids did what I did in my youth, I'd kill 'em. Growing up in Alabama, all I wanted to do was go live in Europe, and I didn't care how I got there.

    I joined the Air Force at 20 and was stationed in England & Germany for 5 years. When I got out, I worked for six months back in Alabama, then the urge to go back to Europe resurfaced, and I had to RUNNOFT:



    I bought a North Face backpack and travelled around Europe for two years, with no particular place to go.



    I can't believe I put my mom through such stuff. It was hard on her.

    Good idea to do the video instead of studying – that’s the spirit! A very deep and meaningful video, jd1987. A good one to watch anytime and especially on the up and coming, soon to be here, new years day. I was very pleased to see a hammock this time. Thanks for the video!

    I have included a link to a video, along the same line of thinking, that you might like to have a look at:
