Those two clues shine light on the path. But they are not the path.
The path is bliss.
It’s ironic, I know. But think it through.
Underlying what angers and scares you is what brings you the most rapturous joy.
Anger is a manifestation of passion. Passion is the fuel of purpose. And living on purpose is sheer bliss.

Follow your anger and fear to discover your path. Then walk the path by following your bliss.
The scholar Joseph Campbell happened upon the power of bliss by studying an ancient Sanskrit word.
