Thank You for the Wind and the Sea. I invite you to severe November Curonian Spit, where the wind tells the truth about his nature and the sea opens a new dimension of the storm. And a hero’s journey begins.
“Follow Your Bliss” – Sol-sol-sol-me flat! “Contre Le Vent” (or Against the Wind in English) – Fa-fa-fa-re now I am singing the 5th Symphony by Beethoven.
“Follow Your Bliss” was the motto of Joseph Campbell. And by my opinion he knows everything about hero’s journey.
“Contre Le Vent” (Against the Wind) sculpture is about a hero’s journey. You can found it in Lithuania, Curonian Spit sand dunes.
Joseph Campbell said that the great life is, basically, one hero’s journey after another. Follow Your Bliss – Contre Le Vent, then again Follow your Bliss – Against The Wind, and again until the end. It is the Destine’s Theme from the 5th Symphony:
Joseph Campbell writes: “Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There’s always the possibility of a fiasco. But there’s also the possibility of bliss.”
I see a really strong man in the sculpture. He must be very courageous, as Beethoven, to follow his bless, against the North Baltic wind.
Joseph Campbell inspires: “What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself. There is nothing you can do that’s more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way you will find, live, become a realization of your own personal myth.”
Do you accept right now that you are the gift to the world? I dare to become a sign and a signal for you. We need to be a beacons for each other and go and live our hero’s journey.
The sculpture seems to be alone. But it has his creator, it inspires. I had a long journey to see it. The Destiny’s theme from the 5th Symphony I had felt its pulse there. And this Pulse, this vibration of the Sculpture make me believe to Joseph Campbell – we are never alone, in every myth we live there are a helpers, a magicians, a wizards.
Beethoven’s 5 Secrets are for you for today!
Follow Your Bliss – Against The Wind! Follow Your Bliss – Contre Le Vent – in French way it will be easier, I know. Love your smiling eyes.

I think you are a gift to the world. I am too. We all are. I only wish more of us believed that. We take being human personallly, as if there were a cookie cutter form we should be following. Be you, my girl. And I will be me. And we will meet with many other souls who are doing their best to be who they are.
