“You can only feel creative when there is joy. When there is a sense of passion.”
Passion is the powerful, focused force of happiness directed to a specific interest in life. Passion is a tremendous asset in expanding our happiness, because it draws our happiness out.
When we think of passion, we usually think about what we are passionate about – opera, chocolate desserts, skiing, or even salsa dancing. Today we will explore passion at a deeper level as we connect to what really matters, the source of passion within us. If we can access that infinite source of passion and joy inside, then we can live passion in all areas of our life.
At its source, passion is not associated with any particular object, it is rather a deep feeling of exaltation or even spiritual ecstasy. It is the happiness of life exulting in its own existence. Today we will tap into that blissful core of existence and let our passion flow from that place.
Our centering thought for today is: My happiness energizes and inspires me.
Mantra: Rabhasa Hum
Rabhasa means the passion of living. It conveys the sense of a rushing or surging force of energy. Rabhasa Hum means we identify our consciousness, or life force, with the powerful passionate energy coursing through the universe. It gives us a passionate enthusiasm for life and growth.
