You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.
So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
How often have your heard, read or been advised to do this?
But how does one find one’s passion? Maybe they are right in front of you, but you dismiss them as irrelevant, unattainable or a fantasy.
What if your curiosity, interests or desires were clues pointing you toward your passion? After all, passion is a strong feeling or desire.
What if you have a built-in guidance system that is gently moving you along despite any resistance you might be feeling? Perhaps your inner self knows where you need to be going and is guiding you.
Every day you are given subtle signs that gently indicate the next step on the path. They come from your inner wisdom in the form of simple desires.
Often these desires or interests are shrugged off as insignificant and only with hindsight does their real value surface.
In myself, the first evidence of this came in my teens with my passion for books about foreign lands and different cultures. Only later in life, was I able to look back and see that this passion guided me to a life as a global gypsy and later to working with the immigrant community.
Later, my fascination with shamanism and a desire to know more resulted in me heading off to Peru on an adventure into the world of the shaman. This turned into a 5-year exploration of self while guiding others on spiritual tours through Peru.
My explorations in Peru lead to an interest in quantum physics, neurology, the mind and thoughts, the culmination of all these interests or desires the brought me to the 3 Principles.
When I look back now, I am amazed at all I have done. It happened effortlessly because I allowed my interests and desires guide me forward. I am not saying there weren’t challenges along the way, but with hindsight I know that when I fought the desire I cause a lot of anxiety and stress for myself. However, when I let go and trusted this inner guidance my life moved along smoothly.
It’s very stressful to constantly feel that you don’t know what your passion is. It takes a lot of energy to constantly be evaluating each and everything you do in life trying to figure out if this or that is your passion. When if fact, it could be right there in front of you quietly presenting itself as an interest or desire.
Your inner guidance system is always leading you forward, all you have to do is trust in it. Let go of preconceived ideas of what life should be like and trust your personal GPS. This will lead you to some amazing places.
It’s all happening perfectly even without your help!
So, don’t fret that you can’t find your passion. Instead, listen to those simple desires and be curious about where they might lead. A new adventure awaits beyond the known.
Aren’t you curious about where your desires will lead you?
