Finding Your Passion
Thinking about finding your passion, huh? When did you last see it? Perhaps you left it wherever you put the car keys
What is passion? It is surely the becoming of a person. Are we not, for most of our lives, marking time? Most of our being is at rest, unlived. In passion, the body and the spirit seek expression outside of self. Passion is all that is other from self. Sex is only interesting when it releases passion. The more extreme and the more expressed that passion is, the more unbearable does life seem without it. It reminds us that if passion dies or is denied, we are partly dead and that soon, come what may, we will be wholly so.
John Boorman (b. 1933), British filmmaker
Passion is a critical ingredient to a life well-lived. Perhaps it is the single most important secret to living a long life, as well. The same goes for a love relationship Without passion, the quality of a romantic relationship fades to a shadow; a dry, lackluster spectre of its former glory.
"Life is not so much a matter of 'finding' ourselves as it is a matter of making ourselves."Alan Loy McGinnis - speaker and author
Finding your passion has to do with cultivating romance as well as seeking your lifes purpose. Achieving either or both essentially requires the same skill set. It has to do with reaching deep down inside and figuring out what matters most to you.
When you are acquainted with your most heart felt wishes and yearnings; when you can feel the heat of the flames of passion as you visit those thoughts; that is when you are oh-so-close to manifesting your hearts desire. The more powerful the emotions you generate from the thoughts, the more likely that you will create your dreams. The longer you can sustain those powerful emotions, the sooner you will see them come to pass.
The next step is to stand back, relax, and focus on the positive aspects. Trust that the Universe will deliver and it will!
Now that doesnt mean that there is nothing for you to DO. Oh my, no! There is plenty you can do! When it comes to finding your passion, the things you choose to do are very important. Not in of themselves, but for the effect they have on you and your emotional state. The idea is to cultivate a state of being that feels like you are head over heels in love. That doesnt sound too bad now, does it?
When we can sustain the delicious emotional state of the hopeless romantic, we are a perfectly tuned to successfully find and experience our passions. It is a similar concept to how the body benefits from laughter, whether it is genuine or fake. (Its true! Studies have proven that our bodies cant tell the difference between an authentic belly laugh and one that we are pretending. We receive many benefits from laughter of ALL kinds. See Laughter Yoga)
Choosing thoughts and activities that maintain our blissful state is actually not that difficult. Even in the worst of circumstances, with the most negatively focused people, we STILL get to choose how WE are going to feel. All you need to worry about is how YOU choose to feel. Leave everyone else to create their own lives. (You know they will anyway!)
