First of all, the fact that you want to find this question means you already have the mind that wanting to have passion. It is really great. It means it’s not that you don’t have passion. The reason why you want to have a passion is that maybe there are things that you want to achieve through persistent effort. You who want to find passion are not the ones who don’t have a passion, but instead, it could be the ones who couldn’t maintain doing something well with the passion.
Then why do you feel like your passion is gone? For me, I could know the answer to this question and I also find my passion through meditation. The answer is very simple. The reason why we couldn’t have passion is that we have a lot of disturbing minds that make us not be passionate and not do something diligently.
Let me give you an example that I am studying English. When I first started English, I started it with a lot of passion and diligence. I kept on doing diligently. But at some point, I felt exhausted and didn’t want to do it. My interest for studying English was gone gradually.
I thought my passion for English had disappeared. But through meditation when I look back on my mind carefully, it wasn’t. When I look back on deep inside my mind, there were so many hindrances that make me not do English. For example, all the moments about failure when I couldn’t do well about English, the moment when I became afraid of English, fear of not doing a better job, the pressure of doing, etc… this kind of mind make me lost passion for studying English.
To put it simply, because of all the minds that I’ve accumulated from what I have experienced, I got tired and was afraid before I start things. And I thought that thinking is right. I was deluded that my passion is gone and I thought I’m not good at it.
But through meditation, I could realize all that negative mind was false that I made. So I discard those minds one by one, and as much as my mind is empty, I could feel comfortable. So it was possible doing things without an obsessed mind like expectation of results, pressures… so I could naturally join the process. and the positive results naturally followed. also efficiency increased incredibly than before.
All the negative mind that we have possessed is the main reason that makes us not have a passion or maintain the will of doing something. Once we let go of all this mind, the true mind that we already have will be revealed. When my mind became this original mind itself, I could do things with no cluttered thought and could just do what I want to do or what I need to do naturally. Rather than finding the solution outside, let’s look back inside our mind and take care inside of our mind. It is the best way to find our genuine passion.
I’d like to share a video that may help you to recover your passion inside. Thank you🙏
