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.

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.

 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

What is Wellness?

What is Wellness?  Wellness is the sum of all your parts, aka being a better human, the best human

If you are healthy, is it something you have worked for?

Are you consciously cultivating a healthier body and a healthier mind?

Are you actively working within your society, be it the community or an organization you belong to, or perhaps it can begin right there in your kitchen, with the food you buy and prepare for yourself and others?

Are you kind?

Are you compassionate to your husband, children, mother, and father?

Have you had to work through differences with people we are meant to call family?

If so, have you sorted through the confusion that comes from such hard decisions, or do you hold on strongly to your theories placing others into a fixed perspective?

Mental wellness is not easy for anyone, but if and when developed will prove to be the most fruitful aspect of our health and happiness.

Why is wellness necessary?

If you aren’t sure that wellness is important to you, then ask yourself what is important. I can guarantee that there will, at some point, be an answer and the only way to get there is by actively working on who you are.

If we break down our existence into simple forms there are a few things that we just can’t do without.

  • We live through the interconnectedness of all beings and their systems as that provides optimal functioning of our systems.

  • We need to breathe oxygen and to consume and metabolize calories so that physical movement is possible. We need other people so that we can do the things we are born to do, like laugh, dance, communicate, etc.

Yet, I haven’t mentioned the necessity of life:

  • Death. Yes, every single thing has its opposite.

Morbid as it may be, death is the only way we know to define and celebrate the experience we call “alive.” So maybe you can live seventy or eighty years without worrying about something like wellness, or your health, or your connection to others, your perception of the world, or how you creatively express the genius that is in you, but the chances that your time alive doesn’t include these wonderful truths, is not a chance I would wish on anyone.
