Whenever I speak to someone who is passionate about their Calling in life – their Mission or Purpose – it is in those moments that the now is transcended and instead a light is shone upon what is possible (not what is probable).
I am sitting in Italy as I write this – a country that has called me back again and again – and one of its most magnetic features is the passion of its people.
Italians for the most part are passionate about life. They are compelled to express themselves verbally, emotionally and physically. The man on the mobile phone, waving his arms around as he sits in the front seat of his car, parked for a moment to better carry on the conversation. The lovers entwined in the parks for all to see. The sister gesticulating and loudly telling off her brother while gathered at a restaurant with family and friends.
It is all passionate self-expression. It is not constrained by sensibility or what others believe you should or must do. No. It is the opposite. It is an all out, hands waving, emotions flowing, words crashing through the maze of any pretense of mediocrity.
It was this passion that first pulled me into Italy’s grasp. Like a sorcerer’s potion, it was the passion for life and expression that bewitched me and held me fast. And as I wandered around town today I remembered my initial attraction, the spell I was placed under oh so many years ago. I recalled why passion is significant, transformative and so incredibly important.
When you have passion, you can transform the impossible into the miraculously self-evident; you can find a way through that others do not see; and you can move a person, a community or the world to an entirely new level of consciousness about an issue.
In so many ways we seem to avoid this passion. It has no real place to reside in a world where we seek to control what we do, what others do and how we live. Control is the enemy of passion.
But passion is the engine that transforms indifference to compassion. It is the lifeblood that separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. Passion has stopped repression, lifted scientific discoveries beyond the known, and has created change where there was only stagnation of hearts and minds.
For me, passion resides in Italy. But I know it is elsewhere too. I have seen it; glimpsed it in random conversations with strangers, new acquaintances and friends who want to change the world and make it better. But too often it is dampened down by desires for acceptance, fear of judgement, a simple lack of emotional support or devaluing of self.
But the ones with passion are the ones I am passionate about. I see you all. I feel your desire for change and the stymying of your gifts as you try to twist yourself into molds of another’s making.
I call ENOUGH!!
Enough of making yourself small. It’s time to let your Soul fly and your Passion breathe. It’s time for you to change your world. Start small, think big. It is possible if you believe, if you try, if you unleash what resides within you.
Your passionate self-expression is needed, craved by a world that sometimes seems to be sliding into an abyss of mediocrity, ignorant leadership and a compassion deficit of epic proportions. When I look around, I see what is wrong and I ask, “Where are they? Where are those who are willing to rise up and change the world? When will they start?”
You are the “they” I speak of. If you read this and you feel the call, it is you.
Cast out all the pain and suffering and rejection of before. Pull out every single arrow that has pierced your heart and throat and self-worth. Pull them out and throw them to the ground to be absorbed back into the earth.
It’s time for you to show your passion again. It’s time for you to rise and do what you came to do. Your Soul is ready and the Universe is calling you on.
It’s time for your passion to fuel the changes we need today. Not tomorrow, not next week, next year or the next decade. It’s time now.
Bring your passion, bring your desire, bring your love and let all else fall away. It is time.
It is you.
It is now.
