Passion, The Savior

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well-

Before a cyclocross race recently, I was listening to a close friend describing his favorite hobby – He likes to make wooden toys and other wooden “things“. Although, he starts many projects and simply lets them stack up, unfinished. “I don’t have a real passion for my hobby at times,” he said to me His last words before we started the race planted a question in my head that I have often thought about: How do we cultivate and nurture our passion(s) in life?

You know it when you feel it don’t you? You get that butterfly sense deep inside that “something” significant is close and you gently move towards it. You make room for “it” and you fully awaken to its presence in your life. Maybe these new-found feelings affirm what we desired, or maybe they will completely change them? For some folks, a single passion burns for their entire lives. It’s their true essence, their true authentic self and they would never give it up

Daily Meditation:

I know that whatever compels me toward these deeper experience(s) will likely wear thin at certain times during my life. But you know what? It’s totally fine with me.

      I’m kicking around these perfection/progress/passion thoughts of late (CX season stuff) … Its actually quite hard for me to put my thoughts into words in regards to these three seemingly simple topics, oh well, lots of time on the old bike should sort them out 😉 I hope you had a great ride yesterday – Take care!

    Yikes. I hav not written anything on my book about Dad for months. Months. I have not worked on any real writing for even photography sits untouched. I feel sapped. I do’t know why, other than I am not giving myself the freedom to wander, paddle, interact with nature. It is something that has been missing in my life for too long. That is a longer conversation though.

    Still sick, but hope to encounter a CX soon. Maybe with my camera, just for practice?
