acquaintances, and others who share your life.

When you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,

and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
