Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming.
Draw Close to the Flame
In December, I spent several days exploring the beautiful state of Colorado. Very different from my humid, plush green central Florida, I was surrounded by dry desert. I was amazed at how different the landscape was and how I didn’t gush sweat when I ran.
I was immersed in a land rich in history from pioneers who ventured west into the land inhabited by Native Americans, mountain lions and deer. I could feel the earth tremble as herds of buffalo stampeded through the canyon in centuries past, and the clank of hammers driving nails into railroad ties, opening the wild west to the nation.
It’s a part of history some never knew or at best long sense forgotten. But it was an expansive time where the best—and worst—came out of us. It brought out the pioneer spirit and the flame of discovery burned brightly.
Today, many of us spend our days vacillating between i-phones, computers, netbooks and Kindles. We text each other across the room. Our email boxes are bombarded with hundreds of emails from those wanting to sell us their fool-proof, get rich today, schemes of independent wealth.
Through it all, our dreams get lost. The flame of passion for what we’ve been called to do wanes to embers. Yet, somewhere deep within us, the desire remains. Though smoldering, it still has fire in its belly.
Today is the day to draw close to the flame. Breathe your breath of passion on those embers and it will ignite again with a fire burning hot in your soul. It will provide the energy for your pioneer spirit to drive you to places you never thought possible.
It’s who you are. Long before Subaru adopted the slogan, you were driven by what’s inside. It’s the fire. So draw close to the flame today. Let the heat warm you to possibilities that your dream really can become a reality. It really can happen, you know. You deserve it. You can do it. Just draw close to the flame.
