Somewhere along the way, Marcus, the path to salvation shifted from the renunciation of desire to the dogged pursuit of one’s passion.
Are they that different?
Both replace one set of desires with another… one definition of success with another… one life with another…
Both guarantee to exalt, to elevate you above lesser men.
Because if there’s one thing more deplorable than failure, it’s mediocrity.
Which explains why there is no average spiritual goal or ordinary passion.
Just ordinary, average people.
