What is your Passion?


I have been blessed with the opportunity to live in different continents. I was born in Chile, South America, then moved to the North American Continent in the U.S.A, the windy city of Chicago to be exact during my early childhood years. My family then moved to Utah and I moved as a young bride to Denmark, Europe to live for many years.

All of this moving around caused and stirred a lot of thoughts in me , I always asked myself : "What now?..." and thus my life evolved into different facets, I became a wife... then a mother...three times, and life in its infinite wisdom took me through many experiences, both rewarding and some bittersweet which I hold no regrets . Well...after many years of being in a process of a spiritual/physical metamorphosis, almost being kept in my very own cocoon of sorts, I have been evolving into the woman I have always dreamed of becoming , have analyzed my life from the beginning....finding some deep profound truths about myself throughout this journey.

You see... I have always been Passionate.. and even a few close friends have told me that I am too intense..at the time I took it the wrong way by becoming offended, and I was on the defensive and on guard at all times. When I made the discovery about my inner truth, it all made sense!!! Since but a child, I had been passionate about my views, my feelings, my environment, people, spirituality, and in later years found that..... there was much more for me to discover!

When I experienced divorce, I was brought face to face with the reality of being on my own and discovering who I truly was, for the first time ever, I recognized my true feelings and what Passion really means to me.

I discovered Life in 3-D..... I say this... because Life in my eyes has many dimensions... and every dimension is created by the concepts embedded within a thought process, by what we choose to impregnate into our Minds through these thought processes.

So I began doing a personal study on '' Passion", Wow!!! What didn't I find!

First of all ...I will share with you how I see myself on this day....I am a Garden of Passionate Possibilities....where my mind holds the Power to create literally to my heart contents!!

I mention the garden...because all that is green I Love, all that has Life I Love!

Thus, my first Passion : Acknowledgment of Love, Love is my Passion....from here derives all of my other Passions! Next, is Life itself....meaning God the Creator/Father/Abba as I like to call Him, my very own ''Abba'', and the secret to my seeing Life in 3-D!

When we observe the road, freeway or any other place, we have a limited side view, we need to turn our heads to see if it is okay to pass to another lane, at this moment in time our eyes only have the ability to see a certain range, but what must be understood is that our eyes see after what our brains interpret, and what is being sent to them. In actuality our eyes see nothing, for our eyes don't send images to our brain, it is the other way around.... these images are constructed in our brains based on very simple signals sent .

There is a higher - order brain function which determines and perceives the necessary range of light , this is not determined by distance, but by the brightness of the object in view. Now.. to get to my point, when we surrender into Life, meaning our Higher truth....our God/Self/Father we obtain a new vision, thus we develop a sort of 3-D way of looking at things, everything is more clear....everything makes sense... and there is a broader way to look at things... for we accept a higher wisdom and can actually perceive a deeper, higher understanding of Life around us, thus.... becoming our inner vision the tool to manifest our True Reality. We see beyond..... what others cannot see nor perceive....for we obtain this way of looking at Life in a ''Passionate Way'' and in my eyes...the way a child would perceive, with Awe.......with Innocence..... an approach of Wonder to new ideas and All pertaining to Life. All is easy...All is possible.....All can be achieved and Is......
So being ''Passionate" in my Garden of Life is just one of the many dimensions I have chosen to experience, the other is the " The Passion to Create", I Love to Create ... to Be Creative through writing poetry, an essay, a Love letter... a book, creating a new veggie dish, or an amazing garden !!
Finding that I am "A passionate Being'' has brought me face to face with my truth!
And that is : " I LOVE ...LOVE.... I AM PASSIONATE , SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR IT ...AND THIS INCLUDES LIFE ITSELF...IN ALL ITS FACETS AND WONDERMENT .........

Ok, now I'm logged in as you but you know who I am so don't be all scared that you're going crazy and talking to yourself!
Do you like the pictures? They are small, I know, but I liked the images anyway and they can't be enlarged (at least I don't know how to do it if they can). Let me now if you were thinking something different for the images.
Love you...bye.
