“Set your life on fire, seek those who fan your flames.” -RUMI
Passion, that bursting intensity within that propels one forward. That combustion of desire, belief, and love exploding forth to consume your life.... if you let it. Those who cannot appreciate or understand that which drives you, are not your people! They are not wrong, or even bad, even if it may feel that way. They just don’t know how to tend that particular fire; although, that does not excuse negative behaviors of any kind. If we are authentic in sharing and pursuing that which lights us up, those who are of like mind will be drawn to it, like baby sea turtles to the moonlight. Do not dim or change your light so that others are more comfortable. If it gets too hot they can step away, and those who like the heat can step in. You are an individuation of the great fire, a spark shooting forth igniting that which is ready to be ignited. You’re the only one like you and add great wealth to the transformative process of evolution. Fan the flames of others just as much as you allow your tribe to fan yours. We do this thing called life, TOGETHER!
On this day, I will sit quietly and reflect on that which lights me up, that kindles the fire deep in my belly. I will honor that light and contemplate how I can tend to that fire authentically and purposefully, so that I can bear that torch to the world! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
