Passion is an inner drive. We often think it has to do with emotional and physical love, or with anger and hate, and even with suffering. These are aspects of passion, but they are snapshots, not the entire picture. Passion is the energy level of love and fear. If passion is close to zero, there is not much fear, not much sadness, not much love, not much happiness, no creativity.
Passion is thus not an emotion. It is an all level energy. It can drive emotions, but it can also drive creativity. It can drive brainstorming, it can drive compassion, it can drive all stages of love and all stages of fear. However it is most often not a straight line. I mean, the energy attributed to the emotional, physical, mental and transmental planes are not equal. This depends on the personal development of an individual.
The energy of passionate people can be a problem if not channelled the right way, like into creative action. Passionate people who feel frustration have more energy to show that frustration. Therefore it is essential to give space to your inner drive, and be creative in one or many ways, in a balanced way, as well on the physical, the emotional and the mental and transmental planes.
