Daily Wisdom-isms

Potentiality of spirit…Kirkegaard was on to something. What happens when life is no longer exciting? What happens when the passion ebbs away? I was trapped in a passionless shell, unable to break free. I’d almost resigned myself to that suicidal fate. I could see and remember what it felt like for the world to be alive with possibility. I could recall the swell of excitement in my chest at the thought of meeting the day head on, of creating, of experiencing life. But all these old emotions, once mine to command, I stared at as if something unattainable–out of reach. But it’s not. I just needed to stand up and walk through that Door. Enjoy!

“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye, which ever young and ardent, sees the possible.”–Kierkegaard Either/Or

  1. Excitement is within, it never ends, its like a stubborn child who demands… so he laughs and cries and is annoying at times; you just need to pamper it, within 🙂 Its the way I perceived of it 🙂 Good post to ponder at!

  2. Excitement in life begins in the mind, and in the outlook. Why waste a moment giving into your “passionless shell”. Great post. Kierkegaard is my favorite philosopher of all time.
