Finding your passion – intense suggestion found in blog post comment

from a post on about finding your  passion there is a comment about a technique for finding your passion that is super intense but fascinating sounding:

And by the way, some folks commented on the fact that they don’t really understand what “following your passion” actually means. To me, those people haven’t yet found theirs or they would know. And here’s a way to find out…this comes from relationship guru David Deida…Sit or lie in a room very quietly and think about what it is you want to do with your life. You can only get up for from where you are for 3 reasons…

1) bathroom breaks
2) food
3) You have thought of something so powerful that you CANNOT NOT do it! Many things will go through your mind during this time (which can take days by the way) but there will only be one or two that will NOT let you stay still any longer because you MUST start doing it!

Try it out!


I haven’t tried this.  It reminds me of the “go to a cabin in the woods without any technology besides a drawing notebook and some pencils and stay there until you’ve thought of something…” and ends like the suggestion above.  The suggestion above is easier for most people to actualize and so in that way it’s compelling.
