Passion. A flower, turning gradually, follows the sun as it arcs across the sky. Two kittens, one crouching down while the other rears on hind legs in a playful attack. A lone sparrow, high in a deep forest pine, sings joyfully. A young woman, taking the arm of her companion, nuzzles close in the cool evening air.
Passion. Life living. For a lack of better words: Love and Light flowing through. All creatures experience it. All creatures are alive because of it. It is the Tao within everything. It is Spirit. It is the Divine Essence. It is the Beloved.
Passionate Enlightenment feels like Light and Love flowing through you. It feels as if you are nothing but an outline, a thin portal for the Divine to enter the world.
This is the love that Christ taught. This is the compassion of the Dalai Lama. This is the non-violence of Gandhi.
Passion is Moving. It is Flowing. It is Beauty and Appreciation and Radiance. It is Life living through Life.
Tomorrow: The Enlightenment of Stillness.
