Passion

  • “We have a tremendous potential to suffer. And a tremendous resistance to call our situation as suffering. We name our situation as ambition, hope, desire, duty, passion, love, but never give it the right name – suffering. We laugh aloud among others, and suffer quietly in our loneliness.”

 

  • “The ego itself is the evil and the devil. The entire game of duality is the evil. To think that one has a choice and a decision is evil. Seated in the ego, whatever you do – care, passion, love, service – all is evil.”

 

  • “One act of total passion can convince you of that which cannot be proven by a lifetime of pursuit.”

 

  • “Passion is a very silent thing; an intensity which is visible only when you look into the eyes. It is not there in the loudness of voice. It is there in the fire behind the eyes.”
