“Strong and barely controllable emotion.” That’s the Oxford dictionary definition.
Passion is a rousing stimuli from deep inside, that tries to escape through your pores. It’s so strong you need to hold tightly and guide where it goes. Ride that tiger. Passion is a pole vault over challenges, hurdling obstacles, it is this strength of feeling that propels actions. It is the fuel of dreams.
Passion is unique, it is a spiritual thread, a light that shines through the darkest night, to make a difficult journey possible. Passion borders on unmanageable, an energy that overloads the brain’s circuits and emotional controls.
“We must act out passion before we can feel it.” —Jean-Paul Sartre
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” — Oprah Winfrey
“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” —Benjamin Franklin
“You can’t fake passion.” —Barbara Corcoran
Passion is a spectrum of emotions. Is it love or zeal or commitment or enthusiasm or anguish? Passion is not just intense feeling, it is embedded excitement, not fleeting or illusory, there’s a residual energy that changes from passive to active when warmed by the soul.
Passion is a vibration rippling between bodies
decoded by feeling minds
The day is endless, from the glow of morning
till the fade-out at midnight
A million new things to do, a new sprout
birthing another idea or opportunity
If you don’t do it, will someone else
without hesitation, pushing past inertia
Thinking at light speed, more to do
from one corner all across the city
Sign this, support that, donate here
get involved we are creating the future
Beneath our feet, the Earth shakes
a new world grows through firm ideals
From a tiny acorn she will rise
morphing from a marble to a mountain
From one extended hand, a forest of fingers
linking a world of change together
