Food for Thought: Joseph Campbell on how ‘All if Life is Sorrowful’

October 22, 2013

Joseph Campbell

“The field of time is the field of sorrow. ‘All life is sorrowful.’ And it is. If you try to correct the sorrows, all you do is shift them somewhere else. Life is sorrowful. How do you live with that? You realize the eternal within yourself. You disengage, and yet, reengage. You—and here’s the beautiful formula—’participate with joy in the sorrows of the world.’ You play the game. It hurts, but you know that you have found the place that is transcendent of injury and fulfillments. You are there, and that’s it.”
