“I believe profound energy is something that is in us all. The good and bad energy that we experience every day triggers the drive of life; our thoughts, our ideals and our passions are manifested only because of the good and bad energy within us, and that surrounds us. This energy is the force that transforms our thoughts into real things. We become good, or bad; we do good, or bad, because of this energy. And when I think of all the people I know and meet with a lot of good energy, I could not find any of them having this energy without having someone, or something very important and special in their life. These people have strong believes and are rich inside. These people irradiate good energy.”
Having good energy and giving good energy to other people, and therefore receiving good energy back in return, is vital for balance and harmony; emotionally, physically and spiritually. If you are good to others, and do good things for others, and feel positive about life and living, and give others positive energy, you will always, always get much more in return, maybe not from the same person or at the same time, but you will always get much more back. Why? Because the Universe always, always balances itself out; all the time, every time and without fail - it always balances good energy with more good energy (and of course it will always balance bad energy with more bad energy too!).
But, in our everyday lives and with the everyday stresses some of us have, we very often forget logic and common sense, and we sometimes do things we shouldn't do, or say things we shouldn't say, or perhaps we don't treat people very well or as we should, and then we wonder why life treats us badly in return! Of course it doesn't mean we are bad people; I do genuinely believe most of us are good people and have good souls, but I do also believe all of us could definitely be better. And by being better, and by giving out more positive energy to others, we will get good energy back from others. And because we get good energy back from others, we continue to give out more good energy to others... and so the spiral goes; onwards and upwards.
And it really does work, all the time, without fail!
Sure, bad things do happen to good people. This is undeniable. But more good things happen to good people, than bad things. And visa-versa of course; good things also happen to bad people, but more bad things happen to bad people, than good things. It makes complete sense; if you are good to people they are less likely to be bad to you in return, and if you are bad to people they are almost certainly not going to be good to you in return!
However, how do you define what is good and bad, especially if each and every one of us has perhaps a different opinion on what is good and bad?
Actually, it is pretty simple; you can define what is good and bad by the amount of good and bad you have in your life, and the amount of good and bad you get back from other people. If you see that there are few good things in your life; that you don't meet good people and that people don't do good things for you, or aren't helpful or kind to you, then perhaps it is time to reflect a little on who you are, what you are doing, what kind of life and lifestyle you are leading, and what kind of energy you are giving out.
A monk, walking down the lane, met a traveller coming in the opposite direction.
The traveller asked the monk how far it was to the next village?
“Not far,” said the monk.
The traveller then asked the monk what were the people like in the village?
To which the monk replied: “What were the people like in the village you have just come from?”
The traveller replied; “Horrible, unhelpful and rude!”
“Then sadly you will find the same sort of people in the next village,” said the monk.
A short while later the monk met another traveller coming in the opposite direction.
The traveller asked the monk the same question; how far was it to the next village?
“Not far,” said the monk.
The traveller then asked the monk what were the people like in the village,
to which the monk replied: “What were the people like in the village you have just come from?”
The traveller said; “Wonderful! So helpful and very kind”
“Then happily you will find the same sort of people in the next village,” replied the monk.
Remember... people will almost always treat you in the same way as you treat them, and they will see you in the same way as you see them.
In the course of my life and work, both earlier in the security industry, and then over the past fifteen years as an author, writer, lifestyle coach and motivater, I have come across so very many people all over the world and from all sorts of different cultures and backgrounds, who really have lost their positive energy. Most of them really do want to lead a much more positive life, yet ironically they don't always understand that, in order to do this, they need to drastically change their life, their lifestyle, their choices and their mindset.
There is of course no right or wrong, only good energy and bad energy, positive energy and negative energy, in whatever you do and however you do it.
I can honestly say, with my hand on my heart, that every single person who has introduced positive energy into their lives, or has developed and enhanced the positive energy they already have, has never looked back; their lives have changed for the better and - for many - beyond recognition.
Remember... It is not what happens to you that makes any difference to your future, it is how you chose to deal with it.
“"We build layers upon layers of walls around us, up to the point that our own positive energy finds it very difficult to expand to others and we become insensitive and numb to the needs and emotions of others. We are taken over by calculations of risk and personal gain (or not), and the convenience of a comfy self-centred life; a life where we don't feel empathy or positive towards others, and become slave of our own greed or egoism or negativity.”
