Blinding passion is about creating
with little or no awareness of the creative process. One is driven to
create something simply because of the passion. In essence, we are
metaphorically creatively blind. Whether we realize it or not, we
are simply allowing the flow of energy within our being to lead us.
To start on any conscious creative effort, we need a level of
passion. Passion is simply the way our mind experiences the flow of
energy that will cause what we desire to create to manifest. The
passion can be experienced as strong, intense and blinding like the
passion a drowning person has for air – or, it can be experienced as
a subtle, gentle, incessant, subconscious pull. In either case, we
will need a passion sufficient to pay whatever the price is required
to manifest what we intend. If we have a blinding passion like that
of the drowning person for air, we need nothing else. It is a
singled minded focus such that you either you will get what you
desire or a part of you dies.
Blinding passion can be experienced in several different ways and
falls into three basic types. One is the typic irrational passion
with which most individuals are probably accustomed. The individual
unequivocally states something to the effect, “This is what I want I
am going to get it.” Nothing stops them and they are the proverbial
steamroller stopping for nothing and crushing everything in its
The second type of blinding passion is a deep subconscious pull
and/or drive. But the individual does not really know what they seek
or why. This type of passion is most often experienced as a deep
longing of the heart. It is often called the heart’s desire but is
reflected in many other ways. Many aspects of sexuality fall into
this category as does a person’s search for God, The Beloved or the
beloved and the perfect soul mate.
The third type of blinding passion is desperation. He the individual
knows what they don’t want and they are willing to do anything to
get out of the situation in which they find themselves.
Although the energy behind blinding passion is an exceptional
creative tool, from a creativity perspective, it is best to move the
blind passion approach into a more conscious approach with a
conscious awareness of our actions. There may not be any judgments
on what we create, but there are consequences. Unless we are aware
and awake when we act, we will be oblivious to the consequences.
Although any creative endeavor takes un into the unknown and there
will always things we do not expect, being mindful and aware allows
us to proactive respond and mitigate situations that would otherwise
be much more damaging.
Being aware and awake provides a more enjoyable overall journey with
much less frustration than which arises in a blind passion approach.
The bottom line is that, being the creative beings that we are, if
we have a blinding passion for what we desire, we will probably get
what we seek - or die trying. However, if we do not have such a
passion then we will have to see what we can create that will excite
and entice our creative spirit to become enthusiastic about creating
what we desire.
