Answering the call of passion
– we were born for this!

“Passion” by Tamara Magnisky

Is there any doubt that Tamara’s daughter has passion?  Passion’s energy is so perfectly depicted in this photo!

Welcome to Passion week. This week is about having passion clearly depicted in our lives!

PASSION – a fervent or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything;
experience of strong love or sexual desire.

January tells us, “Passion yearns for us as well.”


Passion by January Handl

Somehow passion comes from yearning…
like the dancing shadows on the floor,
there is a hint of moving objects
and signs of the source of light and love,
but we are mesmerized by the beauty
of the nuance and symbols,
entranced away from truly seeing
the strength of the sun.

Passion springs forth
without sight
but with radiant vision.
Without clamorous sound
but with choral vibration.
Without halting words
but with voice and power.
Without tentative touch
but with tremendous connection.

Passion yearns for us as well
as we yearn for it-
the longing for release
and relinquishing hesitations;
silencing the inner-critics admonitions
then jumping into the fire of knowing
with both feet,
hair flying back, with the wind sending
exhilaration and joy
deliciousness and righteousness
into a fermented
mingle with the sudden
absence of time, place or past
no -future rushing toward us
just this endless moment
we were born for this.

Yes! We were born for passion!

So what is it for you? What brings you the most exhilaration and joy? What things cause you to lose track of time? What is it that calls to you?

This week our Bliss Initiative is to answer the call of our passions.

Tell me, what is calling you?


Tamara and January are here each Monday to help set the mood for the week!
