“Joy and Inner Energy”

“Life is a series of collisions with the future. It is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.” (José Ortega y Gasset)

“Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, ‘Did you bring joy?’ The second was, ‘Did you find joy?” (Leo Buscaglia)

“The most important thing in life is your inner energy. If you’re always tired and never enthused, then life is no fun. But if you’re always inspired and filled with energy then every minute of every day is an exciting experience. Learn to work with these things. Through meditation, through awareness and willful efforts, you can learn to keep your centers open. You do this by just RELAXING and RELEASING. You do this by not buying into the concept that there is anything worth closing over. Remember if you love life, nothing is worth closing over. Nothing ever is worth closing your heart. (The Untethered Soul, the journey beyond yourself by Michael Singer, New Harbinger Publications)

“You have a wellspring of beautiful energy inside of you. When you are open you feel it; when you are closed you don’t. This flow of energy comes from the depth of your being. It’s been called by many names. In ancient Chinese medicine, it is called Chi. In yoga, it is called Shakti. In the West, it is called Spirit.” (The Untethered Soul, the journey beyond yourself by Michael Singer, New Harbinger Publications)
