Our energy announces us before we speak. How are you being introduced?
Our energy has many manifestations including our appearance, creativity or destructiveness, how alive or lifeless we are, the tone of our emotions, our interpersonal skills and how people approach us.
How we see ourselves in the world has a significant impact on our energy. When we shift our outlook we shift our energy. When we shift our energy we transform the quality of our life experiences.
Observe your energy as you move through the day. Is it primarily high, conservative or low and how does your energy influence the quality of your experiences? 🦋
When we embrace our deepest obsessions, we find ourselves living from our passions with vibrant aliveness and uncompromising purpose.
~ Judit e. Szabo
The basic step in achieving inward freedom is “choosing one’s self.”
This strange sounding phrase of Kierkegaard’s means to affirm one’s responsibility for one’s self and one’s existence.
It is the attitude which is opposite to blind momentum or routine existence; it is an attitude of aliveness or decisiveness; it means that one recognizes that he exists in his particular spot in the universe, and he accepts the responsibility for his existence.
This is what Nietzsche meant by the “will to live”; not simply the instinct for self-preservation, but the will to accept the fact that one is one’s self, and to accept responsibility for fulfilling one’s destiny, which in turn implies accepting the fact that one must make his basic choices himself.
~ Rollo May
