The Blessed Heat of Passion- Being Found by God
Each of us has a place of passion - a place where we come alive to the possibilities or the promise of fulfillment. If we feed this passion it may even become an obsession, possessing us to a sometimes dangerous degree. And if we become stuck in an unhealthy cycle an obsession can become a destructive, even fatal addiction.
At the root of any passion is the voice of God- calling us to aliveness. The trick is to hear that voice as holy and to follow the call toward aliveness without succumbing to the nearby temptation of violence. If we can follow our passion-- whatever it may be-- without falling off the path of love, God is at the end of that path.
