"What is passion? It is surely the becoming of a person. Are we not, for most of our lives, marking time? Most of our being is at rest, unlived. In passion, the body and the spirit seek expression outside of self. Passion is all that is other from self. The more extreme and the more expressed that passion is, the more unbearable does life seem without it. It reminds us that if passion dies or is denied, we are partly dead and that soon, come what may, we will be wholly so."

An interesting discussion led me to ask this question to my few followers on twitter. The replies were vastly different, both in wave-lengths and in approach towards the question:

For a high school student, "Passion is the look In a hungry lover's eyes when they first lay on their soulmate. passion is when u blv tht you're done searching for love. when u blv that u've finally found urself in ur soulmate.."

For an under-graduate, through last year of studies, "Passion is a strong feeling of desire. Your driving point. The reason you live."

For a career-woman ,"Willing and believing to be able to live, breathe, sleep ur core desire."

For someone fresh off the hackles of college life, "Passion is the diplomatic synonym for obsession."

And For someone who had seen it all, "Passion is the food for soul."

For an aspiring career woman, look in lover's eye might not be passion and for a high school graduate, Passion is anything but food for thought.

Passion depends on what stage of life you are at, passion is what your priorities are, passion is what keeps you going, passion is anything that YOU ARE, PASSION IS WHAT YOU ARE. Live it up, go, live your passion.
