The Fiery Dance of Passion

Photography and Nature have become two of my greatest passions and driving forces, most especially showcasing the Presence of the Divine/the Sacred/God in Nature, through my photography.

I also love to travel and have been blessed with some wonderful adventures, my favourite of which has to be the pilgrimage I made to the Holy Land.

Whenever I’m engaged with my passions I come to life. My eyes sparkle, my heart sings, my mind becomes completely absorbed. I enter another zone, a place where there is no awareness of time. I spend many happy hours in this wonderful space. Following your passions opens you to the intrinsic beauty of life. I can attest to this fact – it absolutely works for me. Living my passions sets my heart aflame. It elevates my consciousness and brings me up close to my true self.

“The wise man builds his world out of beautiful sunsets,

thrilling experiences, the song of the stars, romance and miracles.”

Bruce Barton

What lights your fire? What brings you alive? What are your passions? Whatever they are, follow them with all your heart. They will help you to live the fullest expression of life, to be the most glorious vision of yourself that you can be. Be true to yourself. Use the passions of your heart to propel you forward on the path of Life. Passion is both motivational and inspirational. It is contagious and it spreads like wildfire. Not only will it bring out the magnificence of your own being, it will also rub off on others, spreading loveliness to all corners of the world.

“The life I touch…will touch another life, and that in turn another,

until who knows…in what far place my touch will be felt.

Frederick Buechner

We don’t have to wait. We have those passions within us now, although they may not yet have been given life. Passions lie within the heart. It is the heart opening to the inspirational beauty of life in all its glory. Allow these seeds to sprout and to blossom as strikingly beautiful flowers.

Awaken to your greatest dreams. Feel the wonderment, the excitement that stirs within you when you dare to dream. One thing with passions – once they start to awaken, there’s no stopping them. So fan the flames and become whole again. And help to change our world for the better, in the process.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs.

Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that.

Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Howard Thurman

So live your passions. Be inspired and touch the lives of others with your inspirational offerings. You are a sacred child of the universe. You are free as the birds. There are no limitations. You can choose to be whatever you want to be. All you need do is listen to the strings of your heart, the sublime music of the spheres. Live and love with wild abandon. Let your spirit dance. Be intoxicated with life. Fully ignite the passions of your heart.

“Listen, are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?”

Mary Oliver

I hope you’ll join me on my quest to live the fullest expression of life by following the passions of your heart.
