Energy – The Wellspring Of Life

Energy is an interesting concept.  It conjures all sorts of ideas/emotions.  For our purposes, we’re going to focus on energy and oft-overlooked ways to tap into it.

Usually, the ways people gain energy are through rest, sleep and eating healthy foods.  Occasionally people might state they feel energized doing other activities, but for the most part the point of view of how people consistently gain energy is seen through a limited perspective.

Be that as it may, there are myriad other ways people can get energized.  Sometimes a calming vacation in a cabin retreat helps revitalize someone.  Or perhaps even a weekend at a beach or a cabin in the mountains can help reinvigorate individuals energetically.  Working out has also been known to energize individuals.  So on and so forth.

Bottom line – the above examples showcase the same concept, but from various points in the kaleidoscope.  The energy an individual can tap into is available in many streams of life, if we just open our eyes to it.  Best of all, there are even more ways to get energized then the ones mentioned above.

By way of example, nigh 3 days ago I was about to head to bed given that it was around 10 PM and I’d been battling a cold for a few days, having an atrociously exhaustive day, when I opted to read a book.  Sounds innocent, doesn’t it?  No big deal, you say.  Perhaps.

I pick up one book, and continued that book where I left off in that novel.  Soon thereafter, I recall that there’s another book I’d been meaning to continue, and switch to that book.  After about an hour of vigorous reading, I switch to another book, so on and so forth.  Four hours later, and bouncing between 5 books, I felt on top of the world.  My energy level was through the roof, and at first it was inexplicable to me.  This was until I realized how powerful allowing my mind to drift through ideas, contemplate creative curiosities and stoking the embers of my imagination was.  The ironic thing is, I should have been even more exhausted than before, given that I was running on empty before I started reading, but such was not the case.  Thereafter, after a few hundreds pages, I was replete with energy as I’d drank from life’s well spring itself.

After going through that instance, I was left with much to ruminate upon.  I found energy and how we tap into it a utterly fascinating idea.  The point is, a simple task that might not hold meaning to others, not only held immense meaning to myself, but was able to invigorate me in a manner I hadn’t been in months.  Not only that, but it allowed me to get things done when I was feeling dreadful, which was one of its greatest advantages.

Tapping into this wellspring of life, energy, whether it comes from a vacation, working out, or whatever other method…is definitely an Ace all Individuals have up their sleeve, even if they don’t use it.  If seen from the point of view of something nourishing and vital to your well being, and I certainly believe it is, then it is something we should all contemplate on doing, and doing regularly.  That’s just my opinion however.  What do you think?

At the opposite side of this example is the fact that all of us, from time to time, will feel stagnant, like a ship without a rudder amidst the winds of life.  Lacking energy [irrespective of reason] leaves us like a leaf in the wind, subject to whatever whim the winds of nature leaves us.  As such, we drift aimlessly in our space and often let the chips fall where they may.  Each and every one of us is familiar with this idea.

How we get there is not as important as how we get out of it.  Thankfully, there are many ways of egress when facing this curious conundrum.

This is why for me, personally, it’s been vital to find as many solutions to this dilemma, which basically means finding as many ideas of things that keep me energized and keep my tanks full.  Please keep in mind, that what might work (best) for myself, might not work for someone else, but hopefully someone can gain better insights into ways they may energize themselves, and even contemplate new ways of tapping into and expanding this untold potential.

Whether it is painting, writing, reading, listening to music, swimming, imagining, exercising, yoga, meditating, mindfulness, meaningful conversations, or someway else, make note of what energizes you.  Keep that in your back pocket, because we all know sooner or later the moment of stagnicity will wrap its tentacles around us and only by being proactive will we be able to shed its limbs.

Better yet, once we realize we can tap into this energy source at any given moment in time, our Individual capabilities increase proportional to how we opt to employ them and how often as well.

At that moment, when energy is restored, the world is in the palm of our hands, and life becomes your personal adventure once more.

And isn’t that what life’s about, living life to the fullest?
