It is our countless nagging desires that keep us separated from happiness, from the great truth. But there are 2 principal desires: the first is to avoid death; the second is to avoid living fully.
The intellectual mind conjures up such desires as a distraction from the free flow of our energy. Our divine origins have led us to the manifestation of our unique energy in the world of form, and from that moment on we must undergo a huge battery of tests until the for we are tenants in deteriorates and vanishes like dust in the air. The tests are mostly about attachment.
Our energy flows. It must do because the prime reason for the existence of energy is movement. But we have bounded that energy in a human form and we must carry the weight of thousands of years of conditioning, of the desires of our nation, our community, our family and our ancestors. Most people under such weight abdicate responsibility for their energy, and even forget it completely.
Can we sustain the weight while also keeping the flow of our energy and life force moving. Or will we become static and passive, and start to live a lie, ignoring our most basic energic urges?
If we can detach form the forms and material temptations, and allow our selves to flow naturally, then there are no fears, no negativities. Just a vital pulsing river of all life. This is the glory of our human consciousness.
Energy is the only thing we possess. It is dynamic is we allow it to be.
