The Magic of Passion
It's nearly Valentine's Day and we are all focused on passion, love, being connected to other people. If you are unaware of your own passions, even your deepest likes and dislikes, it will be very hard to truly connect to others. It is a good time now to contemplate the people in your life. Use your senses to appreciate them. Use your senses to know them better. Listen to their voice, feel how they move, look at them in a variety of ways. Do the same for yourself. You might even consider taking yourself on a date. Get to know yourself better. What makes you laugh? What makes you cry? Have a dialogue with yourself. If you could afford to give to every charity or cause, that got your attention, which ones would you give time and money to? What do your outer and inner self agree upon, in what ways do you need to have a dialogue in order to deepen your self knowledge? How can your inner world of rich resources help you meet the problems of the outer world? This is a designated season of love. Accept the challenge and dare to love, life, yourself, and others.
