Burning without burning up

Celebrating a 30th birthday today, and talking about adulthood. Does it mean you lose your passion? Or at least that your passion loses its edge? Or that if your fire burns too brightly, you risk burn-out before 40?

I suspect the Buddhists have it about right. Personally I hope my passion never dims. And, to live with passion also takes non-attachment. The less attached I am to outcomes, the more I can burn without burning up – ?

And yes – we had some passionate conversation today! Thanks, everyone. And happy birthday, Andreas!
