Wallaby Reflection (Listen while you read)
Now. Now. Now. What’s wrong with N O W ?
Don’t delay. Do it now; for tomorrow may be too late.
I have a passion, indeed I do. I have a passion to live life to the full.
Isn’t this a wonderful passion? Yes? No?
What say you?
Is this a good passion to have, or not?
Why do you ask?
Well, I’m unsure. I’m not sure if passion is good, or not. No, I’m unsure if passion is the way to go.
Well, passion is a fierce energy.
Yes, passion is a fierce energy that may, in time, burn out.
Yes, passion may be an energy like a meteor burning brightly, then….. Hmmmmm….. I’m wondering if passion can be lasting. I’m wondering if passion is perhaps an energy one may encounter briefly; like a brilliant ray of sunshine lasting momentarily.
Are you lost, dear heart?
Yes, you could say that.
Shall we assist?
Yes, please do.
Passion, as you’ve stated, is a passing energy filled with ferocity, at times. Yes?
Passion can be momentary. Yes?
Yes, that is what I believe to be true.
Indeed, dear heart, passion is a fierce energy that can usurp the energy of calm, of peace. Yes?
Yes. So what are you saying?
We are saying, dear one. Passion, although coveted by many, creates an energy within that binds. Indeed, dear one, it binds you to the object of the passion.
And this is not always a good thing?
Indeed, dear one, this is not a good thing at all.

Some passion is good but as you say some is not especially if it bonds you to someone or thing that’s not good for you. Good stuff Carolyn.
Indeed, Kim. It came as rather a surprise to me. I don’t know what I was expecting with this reflection; however, I don’t think I was expecting such a ‘finality’ to it. Since reflecting upon it, though, I can see how my life has been effected ‘detrimentally’ by my passion creating bonds to the thing/person. In retrospect these bonds usually caused me great hardship.
I’ll just mention: I’m having internet probs, at the moment. I’ll have only limited access for the next week or so.
You were gone for over a year a few is nothing just as long as you return.
I do feel passionate about ideas often, mostly creative ideas. Then after I’ve made the creation, the passion falls away. Then another idea strikes, and I’m all fire-balled up again. It’s like being on a roller coaster. Yet, as tired or worn out as I feel when I get off, it’s not too long until I want to get back on.
I suppose I’ve some Wallaby in me. Great reflection, Carolyn, as I hear my BF say…calm down! You’re setting yourself up for a fall! xoxo
Yes, Resa, I do believe we all have a little Wallaby!
Do you remember I mentioned liking a little Kanga garden ornament; though, couldn’t bring myself to buy it? Well, it was my birthday just recently. My daughter and I were out shopping and came across the little kanga/wallaby. Lo and behold, Vronny bought him for me as a birthday gift. How could I refuse. That’s him in my garden…! So sweet. 😀
I was wondering about that cute little Wallaby, wondering if that could possibly be in your garden? I’m so happy for the Wallaby…. and for you, too! 😉 It is awesome sweet! 🙂 xoxoxo
Knew you would say that, David… You are definitely a now sort of guy… 😀
