Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Passion

« Community and Service | Main | Da Vinci was a Change Agent, Are You? »


Dear Valeria,

Dear, because after having been reading your posts for a couple of months, now, I feel fueled by the passion you put into your articles. Passion, compassion, generosity... you give in an open way and in the same time you "embrace", a word that comes repeatedly in your writing, like an incantation.
(The position you have on your blog's banner illustrates this perfectly: an onward movement, open and embracing - almost roaring!!)
Somewhere in the middle of emotion and passion there's connection, right?
The more passion, the strongest the connection?

Anyway, I'm going to do what you suggest: push on the pedal of my inner Ferrari's engine!

Thanks for sharing so passionately and following you on your road.

@Jason - I had not refreshed the browser when I responded here. Another interesting quote "We all need to look into the dark side of our nature - that's where the energy is, the passion. People are afraid of that because it holds pieces of us we're busy denying." -- Sue Grafton

@Peter - passio, yes. I am well aware of the evidence through mythology on. That which enchants us, prevents us from thinking clearly or sanely. Did you mean that you do find my writing passionate? It sounds like you do not in the exposition here.

@Mads - I couldn't have said it any better. Thank you.

@Brian - happiness is very attractive. The passion I am talking about here is not the all-consuming, must-have, danger the ancient sages warned us about. It is the tranquil recognition of what is core and the pursuit of that. To your "walk boldly" I add and carry yourself with humility.

@Jonathan - we must be passionate listeners as well, for that to be realized.
