Every Day


Passion can be everyday. It’s not just some wind that happens to blow strongly through a moment’s corridor. It can be flurried, steady, or still, but it’s always there, always ready to swell, always breathing in some divine sense of breadth, beyond your control, beyond your command, but always there when you are ready to open yourself to it. Funny how that is, isn’t it? That the only thing that you can control is yourself, but only by relaxing, by allowing yourself to open, by giving yourself up to something greater than yourself. Through this giving, you gain passion. Passion isn’t wild, inarticulate, bestial sex. Passion can be worded, hinted at, breathed silently. Passion can be seen, captured in a picture, written into a sentence. It’s not just some aberrant storm, some happenstance accident of the world. Passion moves through you. It comes into you. It is a part of you, an extension of you, a diplomatic envoy of your innermost heart. It can be so deep that it couldn’t even be known, if it were not for the surface eruptions of bliss. It makes you move, it makes you touch, it makes you feel. Passion is everyday, passion is everymoment, everytouch, everykiss.

  1. This is so fantastic. I’m totally jealous. I wish I wrote something like this. You write really well. I want to write a comment but I’m speechless. All I know now is that I want a lot more passion in my life. Mind you; can one suffer an overload of passion is what I wonder??? mmmm…

  2. I don’t really have words to say how I feel about this post.

    I really love how you captured what passion means to you and so many others.

  3. I’ve had moments in my life where I’ve lived with passion, but also without it. I can say it’s the most difficult thing in the world to get up to go to work every day when there is no passion and no desire in life. I can also say that life is easy when you have passion and energy, when you love what you do. Passion comes from having a purpose bigger than you, a purpose that serves mankind. Passion is the essence of living, of coming from a place inside that expresses who we really are–beings who carry an infinite capacity to love.

    Thank you for sharing from your heart. We need more people in the world like that.

  4. u’ve beautifully described,what passion is all abt,but still it’s missing from everyone’s life, either they don’t know what it is or they r too scared too admitt it.whatever it’s a nice way too put it.

  5. such a lovely space you have created – i agree passion comes from within and the interconnected of us all to All
    i believe relaxation practices allow the emergence of passion – as to truly know ouselves and our passions – they must feel ‘safe’ to step forward
    regards and take care

  6. i really like your topics it enhance my passion too i learned a lot of what else passion means keep it up God bless
