Energy

Energy

Pentecost 77

 

Nikola Tesla once said:  “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”  Centuries earlier Socrates had said “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”  Apparently, all we have to do to find world peace is to create it within ourselves.  Can it really be that simple?

 

Get a group of highly successful people together and you will discover that they see the world through the eyes of their interests.  Mathematicians believe “everything is numbers” as the opening of a popular television program called “Numb3rs” once said in its title sequence.  Artists claims that they “create” very little; they simple release that which was already inside the medium and give it a way out. 

 

Albert Einstein once spoke about his passion – energy.  “Everything is energy and that is all there is to it.  Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.  It can be no other way.  This is not philosophy.  This is physics.”  Match the energy of peace to someone else with the same energy.  Match the energy of knowing where your next meal will come from and it will become your reality.  Match the energy of acceptance to the same energy in others and soon no one will be discriminated against. 

 

Could it really be that simple?  For instance, say someone is a diabetic.  Could their health problems become nothing if they simply stopped eating an unhealthy diet and reduced their unhealthy glucose levels?  Well, yeah, according to modern medicine.  That is exactly what someone with Type II Diabetes needs to do.   Is the answer to many people’s fear of becoming old and infirmed simply to keep moving?  The septuagenarians-p[us still running marathons would agree that it is.

 

When we spend our time in useless rants we should ask ourselves what energy it is that we are spreading.  When we waste our gift of gab in demeaning tirades that offer no real solutions or answers we are wasting energy.  When we post on Facebook those humble brags about how exhausted we are leading our busy lives full of employment, travel, and extravagant vacations, we could be clicking on several charity sites raising money to help find cures for real problems.

 

Please do not misunderstand.  We all get tired of traveling and even the best vacation will have its ups and downs.  Certainly there is nothing wrong discussing these things.  All too often, though, we post on Facebook to brag, not to discuss.  Political candidates do the same thing in countless speeches that offer no real solutions nor clearly state what they actually are going to accomplish if elected.  That type of energy is nothing but fog, designed to hide the real motive or energy which created it.

 

When we match our efforts – i.e., energy – with our goals, we can accomplish great things.  Nothing good ever came about without some good energy put into it.  We need to stop thinking about how to build image and start building life – not just for us but for our neighbors and yes, even our enemies.  Aristotle claimed “The energy of the mind is the essence of life.”   When we make the energy of our mind something positive, good must follow and the ordinary will become extraordinary.
