All energy must circulate
All energy must circulate otherwise it becomes stagnant, useless and eventually transforms …everything is energy
Love is energy, money is energy, water, air, and the human body is energy. Without circulation energy becomes stagnant. Hoarding money, love, water, etc. has no beneficial purpose. Without sharing energy has no value in that form. It must move in order to retain its life force or its value. Energy is life force.
Sharing means circulation. Sharing is movement or exchange of energy.
We can say a man is worth millions of dollars, but that would not be an accurate statement. A man’s worth is not measured by his possessions. The value of the money, does not belong to the man, it belongs to the money. The money only has worth because someone has decided it has a certain value. If a man is walking down the street and has hoarded millions of paper money, gold or silver in a vault, not a soul would know that he has that material in a vault. He would have to share that information with someone in order for him or her to know it. He would have to show someone else the money he had hoarded. Furthermore that someone else would have to agree to the value they saw.
A person hoarding billions of dollars is not powerful because they are reported to have that money. It is only because we have given them that power. Money has no goodness or evilness at all. It is energy and stagnant money can do nothing at all. If money is not exchanged for something someone else has that is desired, if it is not circulating it is actually worthless. It gets its value from the perception of what it can buy, but hoarding it itself does nothing. If we decided tomorrow that we valued a smile more than money, that money would be worthless to the person who was perpetually smiling. Of course we are not going to shift into valuing a smile that much overnight but that is a very simple example of truth. The value of anything is determined by our belief in its value. Nothing more or less.
A house sitting on a piece of land only has the value that someone else is willing to agree it has and exchange something of equal value; usually that is money. But until that exchange happens (which is sharing-circulation of believed equal valued items), the house only has value to the person who owns it. In other words, the observer decides the value of the house.
Fresh water that becomes trapped or blocked, sitting in a dug out that cannot move will transform itself through evaporation, or become stagnant, polluted and grow bacteria or overgrowth of other life forms because it must move, change and transform. It will have very little value to someone who is thirsty or needs to provide water to their family or animals. All energy must move therefore it must be shared. Energy is life force.
Nature has provided great lessons for humans to learn about life on planet earth. Nature shares energy constantly. When we do not receive enough of sun, rain or wind the earth herself shows us the negative side of withholding energy. When it is held back from sharing easily, perhaps blocked in some way, it eventually unleashes a torrent of abundant and sometimes violent weather and we also see the damage it causes. Natural easy sharing that circulates the energy in steady even flows creates balance, harmony and peace. It is about balance.
When the natural flow is denied, chaos can be the result. When we withhold love from others or ourselves it can be painful. Depression, fear, can build up inside our bodies and result in dis-ease, pain, and violent outbursts.
If we allow ourselves the natural flow of emotions, they cleanse our body of toxins, like the rivers that flow easily through rocks cleansing itself as it goes.
Today we are living on a planet with many blockages to the natural circulation of energy and we are witnessing the violence, chaos, fear, disease and trauma as a result. We can see the symptoms of hoarding of money, the denial of many of the natural resources like fresh water, healthy food and air, security and love. People are fighting and dying over diamonds for example, which have no value at all, other than that we have decided they do.
We can also see the wars, family violence, divided peoples because of religion, culture, gender, financial class or life choices. All of these symptoms are parts of a collective disease, in my observation, but none are the real reason for the chaos. We are blocking the natural and easy flow of energy.
We have forgotten how to share, but more importantly we have forgotten that sharing is not only a social protocol it’s a necessity to life.
Withholding love, withholding basic life needs to some out of fear that there is not enough to go around, has created detrimental and vast manipulations of relationships with each other and with our planet.
Fear is the root to withholding. Fear is most often based on the unknown and in many cases the root fear is of our own death.
It is absurd to me to explore this situation; but it appears that the hoarding on so many levels, which is just another word for blocking circulation, is done out of fear of our demise. Yet that lack of circulation is what is killing our species and hurting our planet.
When our body stops circulating life force, we die. Our bodies are energy. When that life force gives up trying to survive on planet earth we will let go and be transformed into spirit. Energy does not die and yet we fear death of the body, all the while we are stopping it from circulating healthy life force. Nature has shown us over and over again that blocking circulation of life force will always be overcome, usually with a violent breakthrough.
My hope is that we will recognize the shortsightedness of trying to prevent our death and the death of our planet by blocking the circulation of love, money, resources, and learn that sharing is truly our only way to thriving on this planet.
