What is it that makes you sing? What is it that takes your breath away? What is it that stimulates you so much that you live, breathe, and think about it all of the time?
The answer to either one or all of these questions inform your passion. Think about your answers, because therein lies your passion-a passion that fuels everything that you manifest. It is a true axiom that you you think about happens and to take it further, what you are joyous enough about to sing about it, what takes your breathe away or what occupies your heart and thoughts all of the time-will happen.
You will see it come to be. You will realize your wants. You will create your passion IF…. The big IF is when you are practicing your passion with active energy. This passion we are talking about here is beyond physical passion – far beyond. The passion which allows you to manifest what you want or something better is a deep inner spark or fire that drives your every move and thought.
Henry Miller says, “what one wants is unrestrained passion, fire for fire.”
Fire for fire. Ignite the fire flame by:
- Taking action. First make it real in your mind. Know what you know-inculcate that belief in your passion deep within. But, then take action. Do something every day that moves you closer to creating the tangible manifestation of your passionate fire.
- Being unrestrained. Be as unrestrained as the wind. Flow with it, create it. Breathe it, feel it, know it without any closure conditions or boxed-in thinking. Abandon conditioned thinking and embrace open solicitation and expectation.
- Seeking. Don’t settle for selfish grandiosity. Instead, seek resources that will strengthen your passion. Consult with others who have achieved to a level that you want to, but be very careful to make sure you are moving forward and not stalling by seeking too many opinions and remaining in the realm of safety while doing too little to flame your passion.
- Asking. Be clear enough about your passion and ask from that space of truth and clarity for exactly for that. Nothing else, no more than that.
Have a strong passion. Live expectantly from that passion. Act deliberately in pursuit of your passion. Find an unshakable inner joy from passion. These are some of the steps advanced by Chris and Janet Attwood in the Passion Test.
