ENERGY OF OUR BODY
God is so kind on us all
He discriminates none
Provides us three elements
That too free of any costs involved!
Fire, water and air, so fresh at that
Which are the best forms of energy
For all living beings on earth & even beyond
Without which living beings cannot have any existence
Even for a limited period of time.
Our body is a powerhouse of energy
We can utilize this one for creating things of beauty
Add to the reserve of our knowledge base
By obeying the Laws of Mother Nature
And the laws of society we are part
Leads to leakage in our energy cycle
Disobeying Nature’s laws
By cutting trees or by polluting air and water
Can impact our energy severely .
Also, not obeying the norms set by society
Or following ways so steeped in negativity
Can drain/sap our life’s inner sap.
Following positively oriented life
Can provide ad-on to our already existing energy
Which could be used for life’s variety of activities
For others to appreciate
And for us to be proud of our own creation
Of course, with the grace of own Creator.
THE ENERGY IN OUR BODY & ITS USE.
Essentially, while we transact any job, we require adequate force or power which makes us to get-up-and go in anything we do. For crystallizing that power, and to add to that power, we need to have inner resolve and will to face inner and outer pressures. In other words, the energy or liveliness to face any pressure in life comes from within us. A determined mind makes huge difference here since we deplete our latent energy in negative Karma such as anger, fear, jealousy, rancor, hate, arrogance etc. All these negative actions of ours willy-nilly sap our energy and make us powerless to face any challenge that comes in our life; thus making us helpless when it is needed the most. We must have observed the expressions on a person with anger, it adversely affects not only that person’s energy but also his power to think rationally. We can term this anger as a big-hole from which our energy leaks. While we are seething in anger, we just deplete the precious energy we are possessing in us. It is not mere anger there are also other negative agents which deplete our positive energy.
LEAKAGE OF OUR PRECIOUS ENERGY
The vast amount of energy which we possess could be utilized productively if we do not waste the same in useful creative pursuits. The first crack, if plugged in the initial stages itself, will make huge difference in having sufficient energy in us to deal with any contingency,. And if a small crack when remain unattended, it will grow to be a big outlet which cannot be plugged easily, it goes uncontrolled. We must have seen how a small leak in a water dam, if not plugged in time, could become uncontrolled big hold, emptying the dam and causing irreparable damage thereafter giving credence to the saying: a stitch in time saves nine. It requires a lot of energy and willpower to control that wide open hole.
Fact remains, when gaping-hole is plugged with personal determination or with the help of some well-wishers, then, we can conserve the energy and this energy could be meaningfully used for creative jobs. The antidote for removing these leaks is by adopting positive thoughts in our daily life activities. These positively oriented thoughts include; compassion, empathy, kindness, tolerance, patience, humility, etc. These can work as curing balm and help plug the leaks rampant in the form of any negative thoughts. These leaks are in the form of anger, jealousy, envy, resentment, animosity, etc.
POSITIVE THOUGHTS HELP CONSERVE OUR ENERGY
It has been experienced that when somebody with a positive frame of mind enters our space, our inner energy gets boost due to that person’s presence. On the other hand, a person with gloom and doom write large on his/her face will spread painful emotion and lackluster energy in the atmosphere.
HUMAN RESOURCE – THE BEST FORM OF COLLECTIVE ENERGY
Human resource is one of the best forms of energy which, if utilized meaningfully, could have multiplying affect on the growth and development of a country. Meaning when talented people, based solely on merit, are made to head the vital sectors of the economy including Human Resources and Education, then, we can have multiple growth and development in any society. Brain drain of the talented people could sap that energy from the country concerned.
In politics too, positive energy helps a lot. When politicians are in positive frame of mind, they spread good-will and frame policies which are inclusive in nature for the welfare of all without discrimination.
SPIRITUAL LIFE AND CONSERVATION OF ENERGY
It has been experienced that if we lead a spiritual oriented life, we shall endeavour to maintain balance in our life in any contingency. By this, we cultivate the habit of appreciating beauty, love-, more love springs up in our midst, there is blossoming of sensitive energy in us, there also is existence of compassion/empathy and pain for others’ suffering and above all creativity too dawns. This also changes the anger, fear, greed and hate into sensitive feelings without being judgmental about it all.
All these changes help in conserving the energy in us.
It has been observed that law of conservation of energy says: Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, rather, it could be transformed from one form to another. Meaning potential energy could be transformed to kinetic energy etc. It can also be said that our positive energy could also be changed to negative energy and vice versa. In what degree we want to change our negative energy into positive depends on us only.
Our body is powerhouse of energy but need is to use this energy in positive pursuits; for creative purpose. We can enhance our inner energy by our positive thoughts and actions. On the other hand negative orientation sap our latent energy. The following should be kept in mind for adding to our energy:-
Forgive and forget. It has been experienced that we fritter our energy by keeping some incident in our mind which keeps us tied down on something unproductive. Then fears of things which may or may not happen, on anger, jealousy on others’ good fortune and other negative pursuits resulting in sapping of our energy. This energy could be conserved and utilized on some productive and creative pursuit
Remain happy. We all are aware, in life, we face ups and downs. When hay tidings are there, we feel elated whereas when something negative, we feel very low in spirits. This weakens the existing energy in us besides becomes a roadblock in our further progress in our life.
No moodiness. When we do not have control over our mind and senses, we become very sensitive even on a slightest pretext. I have observed that even the people who call themselves educated fall prey to this moodiness. This adversely tells upon our health and wellness.
Thanks Giving. Whenever somebody does something for us, we should express our thanks to the person concerned. We should also thank God for giving us everything including all the natural bounties without which our survival is not possible. Just a thank will lift our spirits.
Exercise your mind. We have to exercise control on our mind and the senses so that whatever we transact is within the natural laws, laws of the land including the norms set by the society. Working this manner, we shall have positive orientation in our feelings and thereby our pos6tive energy too would be lifted upwards.
Detached mentality. We should always bear in mind that whatever happens, happens for good. In this BHAGWAD GITA SONG should always be kept in mind:
Whatever has happened has happened for the good
Whatever is happening is also for good
Whatever shall happen, shall also be good
What have you lost that you cry for?
What did you bring that you have lost?
What did you create that was destroyed?
What you have taken, has been from here
What has been given has been given here
What belong to you today, belonged to someone else yesterday
And will be someone else tomorrow
Change is the law of Universe.
Remain in present moment. Most of us just remain glued to the past or worry about the future. The past will not be revisited again and the future nobody can predict. Therefore, we should not lose our present moment in reverie about the past or future though some of the past experiences could be of value to us.
Love and smile. Love and be loved besides spreading dividing smile make a huge difference in our own spirits.
Do not dwell in negativism. Many a times we are engulfed with unfounded fears. If anything has to happen, we cannot do anything about it rather we can protect ourselves from a happening if we are having impression of facing those spetre of fear when it actually comes. To disorient ourselves before an actual happening just takes away our energy. Negatively oriented thoughts puts us in dire straits and weakens our resolve to face the situation as it comes.
Live a spiritual oriented life. While we lead spiritual oriented life, we do our duties with sincerity, deal honestly with others, lead a compassionate life, feel pain while others feel so and above all we love, pray & meditate to our Creator and thank Him for everything that He has graced us.. It has also been seen that living in spiritual oriented lifestyle add zeal and zest in our life and we lead a purposeful life full of care for the needy.
