Dr. Wayne Dyer and My Search For Passion

Dr. Wayne Dyer said: "Don’t die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul.”   I think my inner voice must have laryngitis because it certainly isn't doing any talking, especially to me.  I lay in bed at night and do my best to strike up a conversation with my inner voice.  You hoo, inner voice...are you there?  No answer.
Maybe the problem is that I don't have any music inside me.  Lord knows I have no rhythm.  I dance like Elaine Benes from Seinfeld and sing like William Hung, the "She Bangs" guy from American Idol.  I don't know what the answer is.  All I know is that I feel as though I am missing something.  Like I am meant to do more.  How does one go about discovering what their true passion is?  Although I love animals I cannot allow them to become my passion for fear of becoming a hoarder (It runs in the family.  Read my Mother's Day post).  I will always do what I can to help animals but refuse to cross the line between "helper" and "hoarder".   So, I am open for any suggestions.  Please weigh in and let me know how I stop my "inner voice" from giving me the cold shoulder.

I too feel the same way...i may have some passion for some things but not enough to actually think to do anything with it! Damn, I wish I had some answers for you, if you come up with anything let me know and i will do the same for you..I think by asking the questions gets the ball rolling though (at least that is what i secretly hope)
have a good day

Writing Womb - Thanks for taking the time to respond.
I have not come up with an answer as of yet. I hope to find one soon. I just feel soooo restless. If I figure anything out I will definitely let you know. :-)
