Passion is the love of turning being into action. It fuels the engine of creation. It changes concepts to experience. Passion is the fire that drives us to express who we really are. Never deny passion, for that is to deny Who You Are and Who You truly Want to Be. Passion is love of doing. Doing is being, experienced. Yet what is often created as part of doing? Expectation… To live your life without expectation-without the need for specific results-that is freedom. That is Godliness.
Lets say that you are, at the core of your wonderful Self, that aspect of divinity called love. (This is, by the way the Truth of you) Now it is one thing to be love-and quite another thing to do something loving. The soul longs to do something about what it is, in order that it might know itself in its own experience. So it will seek to realize its highest idea through action. This urge to do, this is called passion. Kill passion and you kill God. Passion is God wanting to say “hi”. But, you see, once God ( or GOD-in-you) does that loving thing, God has realized itself, and needs nothing more. Man, on the other hand, often feels he needs a return of his investment. If we’re going to love somebody-fine – but we’d better get some love back. That sort of thing. This not passion, This is expectation. This is the greatest source of man’s unhappiness. It what separates man from God.
- Neal Donald Walsch (Book 1 Conversations with God- an uncommon dialogue)
I have so much that I’d like to share with you, Yet I need to find the right moment where I can quiet everything around me giving myself completely over to the thoughts & emotions within and allow them to flow through me and unto the paper… I will work on that towards this coming weekend when I gift myself some alone time.
I’m currently doing a little late night reading from the book Conversations with God. I read this book 4 1/2 years ago and it’s my favorite book of all time! I love to read it over and over again throughout time.
I remember years before I actually read the book – I would always see it in B&N, I would pass by it all the time yet I never picked it up because the title through me off a little. I thought it would be a very religious book, so with that I always looked at it but never picked it up. Until one day I was on Netflix ordering some movies for my mother when Conversation with God the movie came up as a suggestion for me so I decide to order it for her and one for myself.
Needless to say, that after I watched the movie which by the way ( is based on the Author’s life story, of how the material in these books happened to him through him which began as a conversation with GOD) the very next day-I went out and bought the first book and read it in two days which lead me to purchase Book 2 & 3-I finished those within a few days. The book for me, was a confirmation, that I wasn’t as crazy as I use to feel myself to be.
It confirmed for me what I already knew to be true within my heart. Yet, now I didn’t feel so alone in my thinking and view of the world & people.
Any-ways through my reading tonight I felt the pull to share the words above that describe PASSION on here.
Hope you enjoy and if you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend it!
Goodnight in Joy & Light,
