If You Bring Love

If You Bring Love

Joseph Campbell

At a certain moment in Nietzsche’s life, the idea came to   him of what he called ‘the love of your fate.’ Whatever your fate is,   whatever the heck happens, you say, “This is what I need.” It may   look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a   challenge.

If you bring love to that moment – not discouragement – you will find the   strength is there. Any disaster that you can survive is an improvement in   your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when   the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking   back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great   failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you   have now. You’ll see that this is really true.

Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and   feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not.
