Our desires are similar to smoke,
Our passion is similar to fire.
Have you ever been in a situation where you know about the destination but cannot reach it? You started the journey towards the destination but you lost the track of the direction in the middle? Why? Because you were going for desire without passion.
You were going for smoke. You knew the destination, so you followed the direction, where smoke took you. But remember, smoke travels only for a small distance, then it gets diluted in air. Though smoke travels quickly, it can’t travel for a long time. So you will be left with darkness in the middle of the journey to destination. Complete darkness. You can neither go further nor to the point where you started. You will be lost. Captured in darkness. But because of darkness, you will feel you are free and end up being nowhere. So you have to find a flame, that guides you with every step.
Have you ever been a situation where you know that this is the perfect direction for you but you don’t the destination? You can see the direction leads to success, but you are not aware of what that success is? Why? Because you were going for passionate desire.
You were going for fire. You were going for flame. You can’t see the destination with a flame alone, but it will show you the direction in which you are going. Direction to the destination. At any point of time, you can turn back if you feel that you were going for flame, which was lit for someone else. You can come back and start again. Because you can see the direction. Don’t think that the flame is lit to find the direction alone, sometimes you have to stop searching for next step and help others who are wandering in darkness. To lit the candles of others, will not do any harm to your candle. Instead candle will be brighter than before.
This is what the first two lines of this post means. Passion is about having knowledge of direction, which is enough. Smoke is like desires, will not last long. Flame is like passion, made for the reason that it can be carried forward.
Be careful. Don’t let flame of passion to be lit off, else you will be left with smokey desires and then darkness. Complete darkness. So keep the flame alive, let the passion burn and show the world the real WINGS OF FIRE. (You are alive in the fire of people. In the burning passion of people).
