Summary of Question:A Passion For Life
Category:General Q's from Non-Sikhs
Date Posted:Sunday, 10/21/2007 9:09 AM EDT

If there is one regret that I have in life, a regret that would be pacing my mind on the death bed in my final moments, it is probably my lack of passion and motivation in life. Its this lack of exuberance that I have been in a social cacoon for much of my life and not be able to successfully persue any of my goals due to a stagnating sluggishness that has plagued my life.

I’ve been interested in many hobbies, from music, to art to writing, only to lose my interest mainly due to a lack of willpower. Sometimes I find it hard to connect with others, mainly because I can’t be bothered, although Im sure shyness has much to do with it- A consequence of being in a social cocoon. It has also affected my sikh practice which is an important part of my life. I can be too lazy without thinking much of the consequences
Alot of the time, I find myself situated on a couch or the bed, surfing the internet or watching tv, forever dwelling in my comfort zone, which of course spans the size of a pinhead.
Now I don’t know how to approach this problem, which is why I’ve come to ask for some help. How does one become more disciplined/passionate/motivated and inspired to live my life, the way I want to and not because I am secluded, lazy or shy.

All comments are welcome.
Dear one,

You just have to do it! Sing when you walk down the street. Ask Guru for openings. Sign up for a Kundalini Yoga class in your area and pay for it in advance. Then go. You can talk to yourself about what you want and tell yourself to STOP GOOFING OFF! There are 2 of you and your lazy self has the upper hand. Change that and make your positive motivated, artistic TRUE self be stronger.

Read Jaap Sahib every day in archer pose! Do it and change.
