Step 5: Passion

Step 5 of 12. See 1.Blueprint, 2.Loyalty, 3.Wisdom, 4.Openness

Passion

“When a nation, a society, or individuals no longer create, they begin to die because they are no longer part of the action or movement. They are no longer the beings of listening, no longer the beings of giving to receive; therefore they are not receiving; they are not giving to effort. As a result, they cease to exist on the physical plane.”

-Joseph Rael & Mary Elizabeth Marlow “Vibrations and Being

Passion is the burning desire of creative genius inside you. The dance your body does when you’re happy.

You never learned that. It was always inside of you.

It’s what makes you think and keeps you thinking.

It is your vision of the world as a better place.

What does your voice of Passion sound like? Practice Tapasya to make sure that you have not forsaken your Passion to Reason. Working with Anahata and Visshudi can match your insides with your outsides HOWEVER passion is ultimately developed in the burning furnace of the the 3rd Chakra: Manipura.

  • You determine what your future looks like.

  • You are the one who creates the meaning and how things show up from what you see.

  • You can turn your dream into reality when you create it out of passion, without fear and, most of all, from the heart.

Passion is that alive feeling that makes everything else totally worth it, and by everything else I mean the bullshit, the mundane, the mindless phases of “civilized” existence.Whatever it looks like for you, Passion is the driving force that taps into who we are in our heart and connects to who we may become in this world.

-Tiffany Fuentes

To create something passionately, we may have to endure some process, some feeling, some’thing’ we want to offer and share with someone else — but this is only possible if you overcame your challenge, paid attention and gained something from your process. Aka you did not become a victim easily pushed around by circumstance.

Some can identify so well with God’s suffering that the persistence of prayer and word of God helps them to live passionately and with compassion for all. That becomes their mission and destiny. Spreading infinite love and the path that took them there: Jesus.

Maybe religion doesn’t speak to you. Maybe your passions are primal, physical, and sensory. You want to sing across Europe, climb mountains, become a great actress, save lives, ride waves, sell over a million copies of your book, jump out of planes, etc..

A person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and religion. They hardly know which is which and simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace in whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them they are always doing both.

-Lawrence Pearsall Jacks

 Passion is the link that sets us apart from one another BUT because we all have it, we are all creating links of our experience and what we have come to believe about our existence.

Art is the highest form of faith.

We were created to create.

“When you catch a glimpse of your potential, passion is born.”   -Zig Ziglar

Bow to your practice’s imperfections

Great teachers are few and far in between.

Good teachers are what most of us know and while they develop their practice, they share what they have learned on their journey.

They solve problems physically … like they unlock secret chambers of their body. You, for better or worse, have access to these same locks, obstacles, weaknesses and success.

So if you can, find a teacher that looks like she might share your body, your disposition, talk to him or her, ask them questions because you are a mirror for their progress in the journey. No Yoga. No Peace.

We call it a practice because it isn’t perfect.

For a long time I thought this life was supposed to be complicated, that we’re supposed to build great names for ourselves. But of course that can be done with little effort. Just wake up and be kind. Be kind to yourself as much as you are to others.

And after you get the whole kind thing down, naturally you’ll have to rid yourself from expectation. No one owes you kindness back and so don’t take it personally if you aren’t well received, or they aren’t as giving as you had imagined they would. It is your practice to make healing grounds from what comes up in this life NOT a war story to commiserate and compete with the brutalities experienced by our neighbors. This cooperative intelligence is what we all rely on to pass our days.

Practice the art of not complaining, not about this moment and the pain endured presently, and not of future complications you anticipate, or reflections of memory.

Every moment counts. Time spent complaining is to waste precious moments on moments that have already passed.
