RUMI, BOOBS and YOUR PASSIONS

I remember one of the weirdest experiences of being a new mother was when son cried and almost instantly my breasts filled with milk. Very strange sensation for sure.

I'm sure that the doctors told me about this, or I read about it in all my parenting books I had obsessed over, but when it happened I was shocked.

He was hungry.

He cried.

My body responded with what he needed in order to fulfill his desire to be fed.

(Even weirder is when I was out grocery shopping, my son home sleeping, and someone else’s baby cried and…well you can figure it out.)

What reminded of this experience was a great quote from Rumi, the 13th century, who was a Muslim Poet/Scholar/Mystic.

“God created the child, that is, your wanting, so that it might cry out, so that the milk might come” ~Rumi

As a certified Passion Test facilitator, this is basically how I describe the role of your passions in your life:

Those Divinely-inspired desires--wantings--that cry out with the need to be fulfilled. As important, with the cry comes the means for these desires to be fulfilled.

WOULD YOU IGNORE A CRYING BABY?

To take the analogy of the crying baby and the milk even further I ask you this:

What if the baby cried and no one responded?

The baby cries even more loudly.

The baby becomes very fussy.

Overtime there is a failure to thrive.

The baby loses interest in its surroundings.

It does not develop.

The baby dies.

This is the same path that a desire of your heart, a passion, that is left unexplored follows. It needs to be fed or it will die.

THIS GIRL IS ON FIRE

When I read this quote, it was like a fire rose up inside of me.

This is my Soul’s Mission: to help people discover their passions and align with their Soul’s Mission so that all their desires can be fulfilled.

IF YOU DO NOTHING ELSE THIS MONTH YOU MUST TAKE THE PASSION TEST!

DO NOT LEAVE YOURSELF FUSSY, LOSING INTEREST AND UNDER-DEVELOPED!
