There is an old proverb that says, “The church is near but the road is all ice; the tavern is far. We will walk very carefully.” This proverb says many things about human nature. It affirms the tendency human beings have to do the things they like. It illustrates how much energy is available to you to do the things that are important to you.
Energy is a force of nature. It is the capacity for activity. When you are energized you are motivated and propelled in a certain direction. You are high-powered, full of gusto, vim, vigor, and vitality. You feel dynamic, exuberant, vibrant and alive. You are eager and capable of following through with determination and enthusiasm under any circumstance.
Research shows that you are made up of stardust which is formed out of the elements of the Cosmos. Stardust is pure energy. You are pure energy, so you should have all of the energy you need. However, that is not always the case. Energy varies from individual to individual and within the same individual. It ebbs and flows, comes and goes. Many people would like to increase their energy. For some, there is a pervasive awareness of how limited their time is on earth and they feel an urgency to accomplish many things while they are here. They are frustrated and dismayed if they experience any decrease in their energy.
You need energy to accomplish your goals and to find happiness and success. To animate and invigorate your spirit, you will have to stop saying, “I’m tired.” You will have to stop thinking, “I cannot do it all.” You will have to find your power source. Learn how to switch it on. Learn how to recharge and reenergize yourself. When you become supercharged, you infuse strength and power into yourself and others and into any situation that you encounter in your world. You also need to learn how to ignite delight in your life.
