The Passions of the your mind! All you can be!

Hello and welcome.

Do you ever think about the nature of passion?  Your Passions! The passion and desire to be all that you can be. In the past I’ve written several posts and poems about passion.

Passion is tightly interwoven with all of our senses. So intimately are they connected that you can’t discuss the one without at least understanding the other.

When I first wrote about passion, last fall, I discussed the passion of both the writer and the reader. Later on I referred to “symbols” and used the heart (for example) while relating to love and the desire for one another. But passion is so much more vast in what it encompasses.

Our passions in life are often the fuel that give us the courage to go ahead, the motivation to do that which we so desire to do with our lives.

And I believe the power of passion is embedded within every single one of us (Both Men and Women)! It only needs your particular catalyst to be released.

Being passionate is really about your thoughts and senses overflowing with the strongest of your emotions – IN ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE on ANY SUBJECT!

There are those who feel great passion inside, but releasing it is a whole ‘nuther thing. Embedded passion needs a spark to be ignited. But there’s a trick here, I think.

YOU are the one that will allow your passion’s release. For some this comes so easily, it seems … for others it is a struggle to open up your senses fully – breathe life in with big huge gulps – and embrace all that amazing potential life has waiting. Yours for the taking, just sitting there inside of you – waiting.

Passion is risky. You know that. There can be…consequences. But important things in life come with risks. Living life itself is a risk, but we can’t grow if we don’t challenge ourselves. (Are you listening to me “ladies”?)

This is the very nature of the fabric of life … living it. So what are you waiting for? What is your passion, because I believe that right now is your time! Go ahead release your passions – you can do this, your passion’s inside just waiting to be released:

Passion’s Release

Come…

I am here, inside waiting

Release me.

I can promise you emotions you have never felt.

The depth of my promise is as deep as

the deepest ocean,

as high as the mightiest mountain,

as wide and full,

as the canyons of dreams within your mind.

You will live as never before,

this I promise you.

Release me,

I will give you all you desire and so much

more, yours for the taking.

We will explore everything in life

and beyond –

the reaches of time and space

– infinity.

I can do this, I promise

Release me!

I will set fire to your dreams,

I will recreate ever wonder ever conceived

fashioned only for you.

Come,

Release me!

I am your reward for daring to live and love

and dance and sing and laugh!

Set me free – I am you, waiting to happen!

Have a great Thursday,

Life is a Challenge ~ Are you up for it?

Sitting outside in the back yard this morning (6 a.m. – Northwestern America time), taste buds waking up to rich flavors of fresh brewed coffee, I thought about all the things to accomplish today. It would have been a simple matter, adding these up in my head, to head to a negative place, but instead, I stretched, played with the dog, took the trash out, (garbage collection day) reminded myself what I had to be grateful for and decided I was happy to begin my new day! Good Morning World!

~

Each day of your life

is a challenge – embrace it with passion!

The passionate risks taken in life

may be turn out poorly or gloriously wonderful,

but at least you can say

‘I have lived my life to the fullest’

with no regrets.

Are You Thinking Asleep?

file0001894094118

When you think, are your thoughts busily reviewing the list of “to do’s” that aren’t done yet? Are you dwelling on things that have already happened or are happening around you now? Are you thinking “awake” or thinking “asleep”?

Our thoughts, become words, (whether stated or written) becoming actions. And more and and more of us today are thinking asleep with our actions. We go through life’s daily chores in an almost robotic type of modality where even our emotions are repetitious in nature.

We are thinking asleep. We are mostly in a response mode. We are stuck in a groove. Yes, most especially the “I have too many things to do, so I’m not sure what to do next” groove. The other popular groove that many are caught up in today is the “poor me, I have too many problems to deal with and other people don’t care” or “I’m in a strictly reactionary mode as it refers to me personally, everything else I relate to is at a distance, from a position of security.” Voicing concerns but staying uninvolved at a personal level, because that’s what’s Safe.

Well guess what? Wake up! Life is happening all around you.

When you think awake, you think a thing and then YOU ACT ON IT! Put it into affect. You stop spending time on what’s wrong with yourself and focus on what’s right. The world’s problems begin with you!

No more thinking on what your missing in life (with a myriad of excuses you give to yourself and others each day) because (here’s the biggy)

… YOU DETERMINE WHAT DIRECTION YOU’RE GOING TO HEAD IN. HOW YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL ABOUT THE DAY AND WHAT YOU CAN MAKE OF YOURSELF IN THE PROCESS. THAT’S YOU. IT IS PERSONAL BECAUSE YOU’RE THE ONE STANDING GUARD OVER YOUR LIFE, AND IF YOU AREN’T, WHY NOT?

You belong to you before anything else. You came into the world and breathed in life as a single entity and you’ll depart the same way. This is a simple truth. No one’s going to crawl in the coffin with you, but I guarantee you there are many out there more than happy to help you dig your own grave, but only if …  YOU LET THEM.

The Sleeper must awaken! (always wanted to use that line)

Start by thinking awake. Look directly at what you’ve decided you haven’t been doing AND START DOING IT!

No, life isn’t safe, it’s filled with risks (going after most worthy things have risk involved.) No,  life won’t suddenly become wonderful, but it will begin to head in the direction you want it to.

Life happens whether you involve yourself in it or not. You decide how much control events will have over you. YOU DO!

When you start thinking awake a whole new world of possibilities awaken. You become energized with renewed feelings of hope and anticipation.

And you’ll be living your life to it’s fullest, not regretting in bitterness or sorrow what you didn’t do, when you could have, because you were thinking asleep !

The Infinite Loop of Life

The Infinite Loop of Life

~

Its all in how you think about it!

We shape our actions from our thoughts,

we shape our thoughts from our emotions,

we shape our emotions from our actions to our experiences in life,

as … we shape our actions from our thoughts.

And the loop begins again!

In a computer, an infinite loop (also known as an unproductive loop) is a sequence of instructions that loops endlessly, sometimes because there are no instructions given that will allow the looping to cease. Sometimes infinite loops cause the entire system to consume all available processor time until ended by the user.

Is your life an infinite loop and if so, perhaps it’s time to end this condition. Make some changes, rethink a few things so that the infinite loop in your life is gone!

Maybe just a few little positive changes in how you view yourself and your experiences in life might be a good place to begin! Give it a try. Start today.
