Passion. Have we lost it?

When you go visiting a forest, the idea is not keeping youself clean and perfect throughout the visit.

In fact, those who really enjoyed the forest, who love being in the wild, who are passionate about the wildness, who are willing to take risks, would come out with some dirt on them, some bug bites, some wrinkled cloths, some stain and even some bruises.

You can live a mediocre, lukewarm life and come out clean and perfect or you can live a passionate life, taking risks in loving, reaching out, making a difference, get hurt, forgive, love again.

A lion in the zoo is "safe", well-fed and looks clean and healthy, but that's not where lions belong to. Lions are meant to live in the wild, and there is adventure in the wild, there is risk, there is freedom, there is beauty and it will be in its most naturally wild state.

"A ship in port is safe. But that’s not what ships are built for." - Grace Murray Hopper
