Releasing Our Capacity for Passion



Michelangelo, one of the greatest artists of all time, considered himself primarily a sculptor.


It is reported he believed every stone had an image within it, and sculpting was simply a matter of chipping away everything that was not part of the statue. 


In his lifetime, Michelangelo left many unfinished works from which he had sculpted an elbow, or a leg, or a head. The rest of the subject was still locked up inside the stone.


Many of us are incomplete works of art with unlimited possibilities locked up within us because we have never released our God-given power that comes with energy and enthusiasm.


But be assured . . . it is there . . . ready and waiting to be carved out and  used to enrich our life and the life of others.


Recognize that you and you alone are responsible for your moods, and if you release your God-given capacity to act with passion in everything you do, I assure you your life will never be dull.
