Women become more masculine when they are with a weak man. People who are sick tend to absorb the energy of healthy people. Those who don’t take time out to rest or don’t have their priorities in order, drain the energy of others. This new age generation talk a lot about energy, and everything being energy. I can’t deny, it is true that we expel and absorb energy on a daily basis and you can monitor this by noticing how many different emotions we go through on a daily basis. Christians, Muslims and maybe even those practicing Judaism will have a problem with exchanging the word Energy for God. I’ve heard many a debate of people asking if God is good why is there evil in the world? or If God created everything did he create evil? I’ve seen many Christians and Muslims struggle to answer this and it baffles me because christians in particular have it written in their book, the bible. “I form the light, and create the darkness; I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things” (Isaiah 45:7). I can understand why religious folk would be scared to acknowledge this but nobody questions why we have night as well as day, or why we have winter as well as summer? Everybody seems to understand the need for balance in those scenarios so why is it so bad to say God creates evil too. We wouldn’t have any concept of good without the bad, can a battery work with just a positive charge? No it needs both positive and negative to work. It’s all relative
Balance is important in life. Everything in moderation, because even the best things in this world taken too much can have a negative effect “If you find honey, eat just enough, too much of it, and you will vomit” (Proverbs 25:16). You can’t always be positive, sometimes you need to cry or be angry. We have been given a full range of emotions to be expressed and propel us into action, that’s what emotions are for (energy in motion). I spoke about this briefly in another post a few weeks back. Pay attention to the things that annoy or anger you because perhaps you are called to change or bring a solution to a negative situation. If we were always calm and positive we probably wouldn’t run if being chased by a Tiger or be aware of danger. Even fear can have its purpose, sometimes you don’t even know how fast you can run until fear kicks in…you know like the time you had to run from that dog, or worse, the police!
I would like to stress that balance is so important and we should pay attention to the things in life that charge us up (give us life) and the things that take our energy like the energy vampires out there. I love music, (I assume most people do) as a music teacher I understand how much power it has to affect your emotions. That’s why singing is one of the best ways to charge you up. I could be having the worst day, but the moment I close my classroom door start singing with the children, I feel completely different by the time the lesson is finished.
Energy is neither lost nor destroyed but simply transferred.
