In his Buzz, Unexpected Passion Migrations, @Ali Anani asks, “Where is the passion?” Because of Dr. Ali’s choice of the word “migration”, I will expand on the question and ask “Where is the passion coming from?”

Migration is a key factor in the discussion of passion. After all, passion is made up of emotions. I don’t consider passion an emotion; I consider it a hybrid of emotions.

We are “moved” into feeling or experiencing emotion. The same area of the brain that communicates emotion also communicates to our muscles as to when and how to move.

When passion migrates, where does it originate from? I think it is connected to motivation.

"Every action needs to be prompted by a motive." - Leonardo da Vinci

From my perspective, passion is motivated by wonderment or as Einstein describes it, curiosity.

"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." -Albert Einstein

In her comment, @Fatima Williams writes, “…we don't need to be an expert at something to make a change or do something different. All we need is the passion and drive to do something different .”

Dr. Ali took the word wonderment from my comment and expanded on Fatima's formula: “wonderment + passion + doing something different”, can lead to change, to migration, to movement.

Dr. Ali’s Buzz reminds me that passion comes from seeing the world with wonderment and then how each element sparks our ability to see the next and so on. If we narrow our scope of "expertise" and limit the connections of what we know from everything else attached to it, our passion is not fueled and will die out. There is no migration, no movement; only stagnation.

Steve Jobs said, 'People With Passion Can Change The World'.

Go ahead. Bee passionate and change the world.

Nice touch for Javier to rekindle this buzz. I don't know how I missed this one the first time around but then better late to the show than never. The discussion relating emotions to passion relates one factor. When we look at how others look at passion as in this article that suggests that there 10 things we should know about passion a whole variety of considerations come into play. The more we ask about passion, the irony is the more we develop our expertise about passion and that irony is that we get really good defining and talking about passion, but it does not move us closer to realizing the truth of our own passion. Maybe it is fear which is the singular blockage from that truth, so additional knowledge or facts about passion allow us to stay away from the challenging thing truth is. At this point I do not really know if passion follows on from flow or flow follows on from passion. Worth finding out at the most personal level of self-discovery.

#40 "....then experiences, then meaning, then expectations and then emotions." You described it very well with this statement. I do agree they coexist. But in the world of self help it is incumbent that we look at the expectation if the emotion is not gratifying ourselves. Not to separate but rather to establish a cause and effect inner monologue.

In my world of understanding we can observe something and render a discussion. The language would be different within our inner monologue of searching for greater existence. I find it interesting how folks who write about such things slip in and out of the observer role within their writing. I try to write based on the inner monologue perspective. Not as an observer.

Our inner monologue, if we are trying to seek new understanding, has to eventually come to motivation. Expectations are a motivating factor in our actions, and may produce an unintended result that turns on an emotion. Certainly not the exclusive motivator but a large one.

#39 Much to think about @Harvey Lloyd. One thing that stands out for me is when you write, "Emotions come from our expectations of the world which are designed through our life experience." I see a different timeline in this process (developmentally); first emotions and expectations co-exist, then experiences, then meaning, then expectations and then emotions.

#38 This is what makes passion so nebulous. When you explain it to another it doesn't seem quite as passionate, its a personal ideal.

Passion is a force of energy. Energy is something that can be broken down into components. But i can't break them down for you, only myself. There is no recipe that works for everyone. But the ingredients are still the same.

I noticed that you placed an S at the end emotion of your definition. Implying that passion is a result of.... not in and of itself a single emotion. This is my point. Emotions come from our expectations of the world which are designed through our life experience.

A challenging discussion. Similar to how do you describe anger. We can discuss the outward appearance of the emotion as felt by others, or....we can discuss the components of the emotion. A third description of anger is my personal feelings and judgement, what it caused in me.

Not sure we need to define passion so pointedly. Our interface with others is where we need to understand the motivation of passion in someway so we can make a decision of whether we want to join.

#37 This is why I like our engagement and exchanges so much @Harvey Lloyd - they're so dynamic. Not at all predictable. In this comment I am struggling with the notion of passion as "a container of emotions, skills and knowledge." For me, passion is something we feel, not as an emotion but as I mention a hybrid of emotions. I am having a hard time imaging passion holding anything else but emotions. But.....I am willing to try. I'll get back to you. Thanks Harvey.

Passion is a very nebulous topic of discussion. I enjoy folks who are passionate like you @Sara Jacobovici. But when it comes to the description of what makes up passion it becomes a quest for "who am I". Passion is a container of emotions, skills and knowledge. To much of any one ingredient is like a bottle rocket, heavy anticipation, the lighting of the fuse and the 3 second exhilaration, followed by whats next.

Our passion container should have a good recipe, if you will, of the three ingredients. Its not necessary to have the full range of each ingredient but we do need to know where to find the missing ones.

With the correct ingredients we can secure a growing recipe where we share the passion and grow it not only in ourselves but through others also. One of the biggest killers of passion is when our container is easily broken. The ingredients are still there but we cant collect and organize them anymore. The paradox, the recipe is the designer of the container. The passion container is challenged when we share the passion. Keeping in mind this recipe of passion has been simmering in you for some time. This is not so when it comes to the share. I might need time and throw a little skepticism your way during my merging with your passions.

Passion that includes the goals designed around win-win and can be pointed out to others will usually survive the skepticism.
