Passion – What’s Yours?

A friend who is a Passion Map coach has been in a process with me today of walking me through creating a Passion Map. You can look up the topic on line – – but basically  a P M is like any map, a device for discovering where you are, helping chart directions and getting you to where you want to be.

The directions relate to interests that inspire you, even thrill you.  For me that would be yoga and yoga teaching, for sure. But also writing, as you would have easily figured out from the persistence of my blogging.

I made an interesting connection between this sort of mapping and the vinyamayakosha (visioning) I’ve been beating on your ears (eyes) with over several days.

Passion mapping is a packaged product, a relatively new tool, that helps cultivate vinyamayakosha….that puts us in touch with our wisdom/intuitive bodies…that builds up some muscle if this part of ourselves is slightly on the flabby side.

One small thing I discovered today is that I love listening to music and I somehow forgot that. Amazing how that happens.

So now, I’m digging out a few select albums to listen to this arvo and probably going out tonight to listen to live music at our local (Manning Point) cafe.

Is there anything that you love that’s slipped right off your radar? Or anyone?

Happy Saturday night!



  1. Hi Eve,

    I came accross your blog when looking for total hip replacement.
    It is very inspirational and interesting so many thanks.
    I love the idea of the passion map.
    It sounds similar to the vision map which I have in my bedroom wall.
    I havebeen so busy working and doing what needs to be done that I have lost the time for reflection and other spiritual practice, that is until now!
    Interesting how my forced rest allows me to bring this back into my life.
    I want to continue to make time when I restart work.
    I wonder how many people can relate to this?
    and yet I feel it is so important to make the time for reflection!
    Being a very controling, doing sort of person this is difficult!
    But this “yang” dominated behaviour may even contribute to the development of arthritis!

    • Hi Lin,
      I can relate to everything you say. Good to be made to stop and let in the light. May you succeed in keeping the inner quiet even as you get fully recovered. Blessings, E.

    • Hi again, Lin,

      I was walking without aids about 18 days post-op and I took no pain killers after this time. Actually I took paracetamol only because the experts
      recommended it for doing the physio exercises, but I was never in pain.

      There is great info on the net, but you have to ferret around a bit for it. One web site is called Tips for New Hips or something like that. There are exercise routines for sale there.

      Some things like getting up and down from the floor will come to you in time. A physio told me it takes three months for your tissue to heal.

      All the best to you.

  2. Many thanks for this Eve, any info is helpful especially when there is so little back up here.

    Best wishes,
