Passion and reason
Believe. Passion is purely divine, it has nothing to do with reason.

By Yogesh Pandey | The real passion has to be bereft of reason. In fact reason has no place in driving the passionate you. The moment reason creeps in, passion vanishes. It is somewhat innate, a gift from the god to the mankind, whose envelope has to be opened by the man himself. Whosoever succeeds in finding and opening that envelope gets life’s treasure. The treasure, which keeps up the quest for doing things madly. It is energy, an adrenaline rush that runs through the veins and makes us go deep in the work we cherish the most. 

One may ask a singer why he loves to sing. He may simply answer that singing is the source of immense pleasure for him. Now, if he is being asked again as to why he derives pleasure from singing, the singer may not answer further because he has no idea as to why singing gives him an utmost pleasure, but doing so certainly lifts his spirit up. 

The above example suggests that passion to do something is driven by inner and in-born traits which are natural and bestowed by god. For example, an infant responds to the pamper of everyone, even a stranger, but this may not be the case with every child. And if he responds or does not respond, one cannot reason it out. It is the nature of the child gifted by the god Himself which cannot be questioned. He is unique, so are his traits which were embedded by the god before his birth. 

Similarly, passion too has its manifestations in the process of one’s creation. The process is purely divine in nature. And if the process is divine, the result that comes out of the same will equally be divine.
