I had a very funny experience the other day. I was at this function and my tag read
Now those of you who know me know I hate wearing tags in my clothes (or on my clothes). I will never buy anything that has the name of a designer on it. (I know who my Designer is and it isn’t Calvin Klein or DKNY or Ferragamo). Anyway, back to the story. One man came up to me and starting talking and was really interested in what The Energy Gurus was (and why) and his wife came by and said, “Oh, I can see he is going to get back into yoga. Not me, but he will.” The next man (who approached me) then asked about it. I said, “When I say energy what do you think of?” He said, “Gas, coal wind, solar.” I responded, “Exactly. This is what most people think of, but what about your energy? Would you like to know how to change your energetic states?” His response was the most odd. He said, “Oh, God. That is a scary thought.” I have to say he was about 80 years old. He didn’t even want to think about changing his energetic states. I will also say that this was a very educated crowd. Interesting, that the thought of changing our energetic states is far scarier than thinking of other forms of energy—the old Newtonian concept that wants someone or something else to fix us; to shift our energy. The New age concept is, only you can shift your energetic states.
There is this Hafiz poem that tells God’s concept of what will happen if we don’t embrace our passion, which gives you so much more energy, and align our lives with that energy. Everything in life has energy. Some things take our energy and some things give us energy. Some things give us a false sense of energy and some things give the real goods. At each moment, we are choosing which side of the spectrum we are moving into. The poem states that God posted a decree on the wall stating, “If your heart cannot find joyful work, the jaws of the world will probably grab your sweet ass [and grind you to bits]. That last part is my addition.
So what do you do that gives you energy? What do you do that takes energy from you? What cheaters do you use? (i.e., caffeine, sugar, alcohol or… name your energy cheater) Do you want something real and yummy get out of the jaws of the world? Try this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFm7g70Lc-0
Did you do it? Don’t just skip over it. It can support you and your energy right now. The most important thing you can learn to shift, change, and expand is your own energy because without fabulous energy, how can you do anything in your life that is worthwhile? You know how to lose energy, you know how to have no energy and be drained, but how to get energy that will sustain, support and uplift you? No? That is priceless and you deserve priceless. Start with getting a video each day that will support you.
Then get the Kundalini Yoga Flip Charts so you can carry them with you—so you can be carried through life.
Wahe Guru love and life energy to you.
