Some speak of ‘my’ energy, of ‘their’ energy, of ‘others’ draining one’s energy – as in bad and good vibes… But where is this self that owns its ‘own’ energy? Exactly where are these other selves who can steal ‘my’ energy? Can life’s energy exist as an object to be manipulated or to be stolen? Scientists can measure energy in different forms, but can they hold it in their hands and view it with the naked eye?
What I’ve discovered these past months, in the company of a dear someone who constantly monitors ‘his’ energy and also informs me of the state of my own, is that the sensation of energy loss – or gain – in my body is caused by identification with said body, coupled with the belief that energy is finite and fixed. I question this popular paradigm that posits human beings as a collective of hungry vampire energy-suckers. As far as I’m concerned they’re sucking at the wrong source.
What if all those beliefs were untrue?
What if our ‘real’ energy was something utterly
and so unavoidable that you’d have to conclude
IT was your
own dear Self?
