Also; I found a reference to Joyce that Joseph uses concerning thoughts about (money) and following your bliss which is found on page 73; in Diane Osbon’s: “Reflections on the Art of Living”.
“I find working for money to be the wasteland—doing something that somebody else wants instead of the thing that is my next step. I have been guided all along by a strong revulsion from any sort of action that does not correspond to the impulse of my own wish.”
“The person of noble heart acts spontaneously and will avoid the wasteland, the world of thou shalt.”
“I will not serve that in which I no longer believe whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church…. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, and perhaps as long as eternity too.” —-Stephen Dedalus
“The crucial thing to live for is the sense of life in what you are doing, and if that is not there, then you are living according to other peoples’ notions of how life should be lived.
The opposite to doing what you think you ought to do is compassion. The one who finds the Grail is symbolic of the one who has come to that place and whose life is of compassion. The one who finds as his motivation the dynamism of his compassion has found the Grail. That means spontaneous recognition of the identity of I and Thou. This is the Grail center.
To become—in Jung’s terms—individuated, to live as a released individual, one has to know how and when to put on and to put off the masks of one’s various life roles….The aim of individuation requires that one should find and then live out of one’s own center, in control of one’s for and against. And this cannot be achieved by enacting and responding to any general masquerade of fixed roles.”
