Passion has such a powerful universal resonance; one of those wild energies that ignite the senses and unleash creative currents where wisdom is the only worthy guardian.
No pressure but it’s heavy to hug! Passion has been burdened with a sense of uncontrollability, loss of reason and an overwhelming feeling of euphoria that makes the mind take the risk of going astray. While those who fear desire have tried to repress and suppress it by tinkering with our emotions and feelings in mind-boggling dogmas and principles, artists nevertheless live out that truth for all of us to remind us that when we dive into the well of desire, we create beauty, magic, magic that continues to inspire our inner reflections and expand our visionary abilities.
Contrary to the old belief that depicts passion as a space to be avoided, we must learn how to embrace it with purpose. This means re-evaluating our perception of passion. Indeed, living with passion demands an extraordinary sense of discipline, clarity, and purpose. Not only is passion not to be feared but even more so to be embraced because it is the space that holds the sparks of genius and which ignites the creative process that has been experienced by the divine potential in form.
Here are 3 misunderstood truths about desire that can guide your mind into a new belief system reconfiguration with a renewed sense of possibility.
1 – Passion is power not danger
Passion is pure creative energy. Like other wild elements, it seeks a direction that will allow it to have purpose and meaning. The human element is a person’s blueprint. This is the uniqueness of each of us. To give passion a sense of empowerment, we must first uncover our own strengths and weaknesses, identify our fears, recognize our patterns, and let go of our worthiness. All of this is revealed through an introspective journey within that allows the mind to explore its own anatomy, physiology, and mechanics. Knowing yourself allows the energy spent to align with an empowered sense of being, presence, and life. When we find the desire to find ourselves, we fuel the desire to express it.
2 – Passion is a cause not an effect
What we tend to believe is that arousal is the result of some type of activity that creates pleasure and which we want to repeat over and over again so that we experience ourselves in this passionate frequency. Interestingly enough, this is quite the opposite. Passion is a cause and must remain so. Passion drives the moment and not the other way around. An empty moment until we present the energy of passion. This passion becomes solid through the creative process and what is experienced is a residue, in form, of this source of energy. Man must be passionate about his life independently of any sense of doing anything. Passion is a state that is revealed through the process of expressing deeds, not just the end result. Those who are passionate inside become embodied desires.
3 – Passion is energy, not receiver
Because desire is a state, it is subtle and formless until our vision creates an identifiable recipient in which it can be held. Nothing creates passion. We are invisible passions that give way for it to be seen. We are recipients and our experience is an extension of that recipient. One person may have several expressions of passion. Passion cannot be limited to one particular activity. Because it is self-expression and because the self has no boundaries for self-expression (but those it engenders in itself), desire can find multiple expressions in just one being. But at the root of all the passionate experiences of one being lies YOUR main passionate channel.
