Passion Is Your Power

Here’s a concept you won’t want to forget: passion always trumps excuses. Keep in mind that when I use the word passion, I’m not referring to the romantic notions that this concept conjures. Instead, I’m equating it to a vigorous kind of enthusiasm that you feel deep within you and that isn’t easy to explain or define. This kind of passion propels you in a direction that seems motivated by a force beyond your control. It’s the inner excitement of being on the right path, doing what feels good to you, and what you know you were meant to do.

It’s my contention that the mere presence of passion within you is all you need to fulfill your dreams. Remember that God is in no need of excuses, ever. The creative Divine Spirit is able to manifest anything it contemplates, and you and I are the results of its contemplating itself into material form. Thus, when we have an emotional reaction that feels like overwhelming passion for what we’re contemplating, we’re experiencing the God within us…and nothing can hold us back.

Passion is a feeling that tells you: This is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.

When you’re enthusiastic, nothing seems difficult. When you have passion, there are no risks: family dramas become meaningless, money isn’t an issue, you know that you have the strength and the smarts, and the rules laid down by others have no bearing on you whatsoever. That’s because you’re answering your calling—and the you who is doing the answering is the highest part of you, or the God within.

The presence of passion within you is the greatest gift you can receive. And when it’s aligned with Spirit, treat it as a miracle, doing everything you can to hold on to it. I feel this way about the creation of my books. I’ve learned over the years that when I go to that place of passion within me, there’s no force in the universe that can interfere with my completing a project. My life is consumed by the passion I feel for what I’m doing—yet I know that as long as I feel this, I’m experiencing the God within.

My enthusiasm seems to cause my world to endlessly offer me cooperative, co-creating experiences. I’m willing and I’m eager, and not just about my writing—I feel the same way about staying in shape, enjoying my family, giving a lecture, or whatever it may be. If you have passion, there is no need for excuses, because your enthusiasm will trump any negative reasoning you might come up with. Enthusiasm makes excuses a nonissue. When you seek the presence of your creative Spirit and are filled with passion about virtually everything you undertake, you’ll successfully remove the roadblocks from your life and enjoy the active presence of Spirit.

Thank you for this lesson today! It speaks to me in a way that will change my life. My passion is art and always has been. When I am painting I am at peace and my spirit is home. Why do I still feel the need to venture outside of that sometimes?? Never again.

The huge wave is so magnificent, indestructible that no one dares even imagine to stop it. You are the only one that makes the perfect perspective of yourself.

parvin says:

Your endless love in you, causes the powerful potential to reach the highest level of desire. A huge wave is one of the most admirable natural phenomena, which everyone is fascinated with. It is powerful, unachievable, beautiful, admirable, robust, huge, decisive, and spectacular.

Joao says:

Dr. Dyer, absolutly fantastic, it’s exactlly what moves you in life, passion needs to be with you all the way long, otherwise it just doesn’t worth the effort. I do strongly beleive that we should only work with passion and I do agree that oney will become no longer the main issue…

As an engineer at 32, my passion for nature has inspired me to finish a degree in biology and change careers. It will take years for us to recover from the oil spill, and I feel a need to be part of it. I am currently reading Inspiration. Source led me to it. Thanks for being so connected to me.
