We are all lumps of clay and the final work produced
depends on how we choose to sculpt ourselves.
-Matthew Valez, submitted by Michael Green
When you are inspired by some great purpose,
some extraordinary project,
all your thoughts break their bonds;
your mind transcends limitations,
your consciousness expands in every direction,
and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive,
and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far
than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
-Patanjali, submitted by Dr. Mia Wesselmann
This fall as I developed a new presentation on the Archeology of
Passion, I began experimenting with a “formula” for passion:
( p + a ) * e2 [purpose and action combined in an enriching environment]
The first component is cultivating PURPOSE. I believe that in order
ignite our passion we must first have a sense of direction in our
lives. Do you have a mission in life? How would you be living your
life differently if you had been given a quest to pursue? Do
something this week to ensure you are living your life on purpose!
