Not sad, not crying... but not happy either
Having fun... but not enjoying
Missing the zing from life – missing what’s called passion
To be passionate means to live from your center – from your Heart'n'Soul. And we all need this centre to live our lives and not merely exist… for our heart to pound with excitement and our spirits to soar higher.
But whilst we are lost in our daily humdrum, caught in the cobwebs of our own cowardice, our own fear of letting go of what is deemed normal and is socially acceptable... we forget to consider what is more likely to provide us the experiences of passion - What holds us back or what sets us free?
We forget that it’s not dependent on the level of involvement but on ones engagement in the activity and hence it's a life accessible to all of us.
By no means do I mean or am suggesting that it’s easy to go after what one wants and feels passionate about. In fact, I believe that pursuing ones true passion takes courage, since it often means deserting our fears and parting with situations we find comfortable... letting go of the "Normal" and the "Rational" and moving towards the unknown where there is only one thing u can be sure about - uncertainty.
And so I believe that people who are living their passion are the luckiest souls alive and I also believe that the credit for their happiness is solely their property.
We all have that core within us, that passion within us... it’s just a matter of some introspection and some realization.
And for me, it’s Dance… the reality dawned on me long back and like one of my friends said “Divkiran needs to dance to be happy”… she was bang on.
Dance is the core of my all. What I wish I could pursue... what I so can not. What I can never let go... what I will always indulge in.
Dance for me is a language to explore who I am in the middle of this mysterious thing called life as it brings me in tune with who I really am.
Dance for me is courage and inspiration - to claim my life cuz it’s my own... to break my barriers and shed my inhibitions to be myself.
Dance is my source of the most cherished and extraordinary moments, the ones filled with pure bliss. Its only when I am dancing, that I have experienced the unadulterated happiness.
Dance for me is my dream that I see everyday and yearn to live every single moment.
For most people it’s something they do, for me it’s who I am.
PS: Would like to dedicate this to one of my really close friends and one of the best people I know, cuz he is the most passionate person I have ever come across – HA, this ones for you, Hugz & Muahz… may god bless you always.
