Many inspirational and motivational speakers have a lot to say about passion. Here's my take on what passion really means.
I was so enthralled and filled with inspiration by the end of the weekend, I could hardly wait to get home to begin. I ran inside, gathered pen and paper and sat down at my desk to pour my passion out of me and onto the paper so I could really start my life...doing what I was passionate about. I put pen to paper. I relaxed my shoulders and dug into my brain. I waited. I thought. I frowned. "Well, I like cats." Hmm. That's not exactly what I would call a passion. "So, I like flowers." "What's wrong with me!?" I couldn't come up with a single thing I was passionate about. I was devastated, and depressed for weeks.
It wasn't until twenty years later that I finally realized how come I couldn't find my passion.
I hadn't been looking in the right place!
And in protest, I decided I wasn't going to take another step until I had found a better way to do my life. It was at that very point that Spirit moved in and woke me up. I literally crawled into myself and got to know my own Spirit. And it was here, in the energy of my heart and center, that I found my passion...but only after I had done a little housekeeping.
And, even though I detested what was in the past, it didn't have to shed negative energy into my future...any longer. I could change the darkness to mean something else. And so I worked on just that. With little actual effort the past became the beacon to the future.
And once I turned to within I really connected with the center of me. It was here, in the Energy of Spirit, in the center of that vital force that I found passion.
My heart overflows with joy by spreading the Light through my Gifts.
And, more importantly, if I can get there...you can too. The reason for your life here on this plane is within you. It is tucked inside of your energy center, your Ecential Center, and it is accessible whenever you're ready to go there. It is what will drive you, inspire you, and fill you up. It is what will get you out of bed in the morning and it will change you from needing and wanting to giving and loving. It will fill your face with warmth and sunshine. It is what you have come here to do...and all you need in order to get there is the desire.
