Passion

  1. 1. PASSIONOne of our major drivers in life is passion. When we have it, we will move heaven and earth to achieve our dreams. When we don’t have it, we sit back and let the world go on without us. Over the next few weeks, starting today, we will have a look at passion, what creates it, what takes it away, and how we can use it in our lives to make things better. <br />I am not a religious person; however, I can be very jealous of people that do believe in God, the Church and the bible. I am not jealous of what they believe in, but jealous of the passion that they have for their beliefs. Many religious people have a strong desire attached to their religious beliefs and it drives them on every day. <br />In saying that, I am also jealous of people that have various causes to follow. Green Peace, anti-smoking, save the whales and so forth. These people are fighting against injustices around the world, and they take extreme measures to ensure justice is achieved. Most of these people have a strong dislike for what is going on and it propels them into action. <br />You see passion is not about liking or disliking something, it is love or hate. Passion is a strong feeling and one seated deep within a person’s core. It’s not just a five minute rampage when you feel you have been done wrong by, but a long lasting love or hatred of a particular person, idea or action. <br />Passion compels people to take action; it is almost like they are under the control of somebody else. They have to act, there’s no choice. I know we have all felt it. It’s like your heart will explode if you don’t tell her you love her, your blood will boil if you watch another person turn away from that helpless child. You don’t have a choice, you just have to act. <br />In those moments you feel alive. All your senses are firing and your skin is tingling. It a great feeling, and can be addictive, and there is no problem with that. I’m sure that we would all love to feel like that all of them time. Some people do, they are the adrenalin junkies, you know, base jumpers and the sort. They live with the passion to take new risks. But what about the rest of us?<br />Why don’t we all live the passion of other people? There is a simple answer for that, our passion has been killed off, murdered by the daily routine. It can be hard to be passionate about going back to that boring job again and again. The bills, the housework, the lawn, the endless dribble on TV. Routine and boredom are stopping us from achieving. Well it is now time to say enough.<br />It’s time to start living with passion again. Let’s get that skin tingling again. Get the heart beating and start living the life you have always wanted. Next week we will look at what makes us passionate, but this week you have home work. If routine and boredom are killing you, then it’s time to do something different. At least once this week you need to thought of the shackles that holding back you passion and do something completely different. Sing, dance, go somewhere new, take a skinny dip. Make it different from what you do every day. <br />Then let me know about it. Send me a letter or a email with some photos of you doing something different. I’ll put them up on my blog and we can all help others to start living with passion again. <br />Send all information to:<br />Terry Shadwell<br />PO Box 327<br />Warren<br />NSW 2824<br />Australia<br />Or you can send them to i-b-s@dodo.com.au<br />Let me know how you go. Now go and do your home work. <br />Terry Shadwell<br />For more information please CLICK HERE<br />P.S. if you do not want to have you information posted up on the internet then please say so in you letter, but I still want to hear from you.<br />
