The eternal conquest.

“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.”
– Hardy Jackson
Henri Frederic Amiel says that without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark. How many of us actually realise what our passion is? Heck, I’ll be damned if we realise what passion is in the first place! Some say that it is the feeling that keeps us alive and not let us limit ourselves to mere existence, while others say that it is what keeps you awake at night and most of them say that it is the fire within us, that as long as that fire is burning, we live.
If we were to define passion as our heart’s desire then we should also realise that desire is what often leaves us heartbroken. It can wreck our life and wear us out but as arduous as wanting something can be, the people who suffer the most are those who don’t know what they want. The truth is there are only few of us who realise our passion, the rest of us roam around like head less chickens in search of something that is supposed to give meaning to our life and somehow help us make sense of the mayhem under the façade of monotony.
Passion, if you ask me is overrated. All that fuss about it being the purpose of our lives adds to the misery of our cluelessness. So we fret and weep over it to such an extent that it takes out what according to me is the sole purpose of life; happiness. You see, you may try and try in pursuit of passion until half your life is lost and brood over the fact that you didn’t find it for the other half of it. There is no guarantee of finding your passion but there is for your happiness.  Because happiness is a choice, one which is in our own hands.
So dream of what makes you happy and heed not to the wild accusations of it not being real just because it isn’t made of particles. They are real but they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and hopes. It will find the expression in your capacity to love your sanctity, elegance, radiance, graciousness, sensitivity, creativity, dignity and quiet strength.
And always remember that your non-attachment to the mundane is your charm and your attachment to the unconventional is your beauty.
