472. Passion

Passion is possession.
Live in the vital,
You will know it.

Passion is frustration.
Live in the mind,
You will feel it.

Passion is perdition.
Live in the heart,
You will discover it.

Passion is not rejection
By God’s Compassion.
Passion is illumination
When it shakes hands with aspiration.
