Alertness to remain in the present
Updated: Nov 7, 2021
There is a growing assertion amongst young people and even elderly people that they should give free vent to their emotions and feelings. It is something that must not be curbed. The question here is not that something needs to be curbed. The question is of leakage of energy. Watchfulness and alertness are the key to prevent negativity.
Negativity is an enormous drain on energy. It is what creates inner strength. If there is no check on negative emotions and feelings, there would be enormous fatigue and mind will be zapped of energy.
Mental energy is in fact the source of creativity. Stress on the other hand, is the antithesis of energy and creates a consciousness full of worry, anxiety and fear of failure. It is the mind’s failure to remember and perceive the richness of the present that is the source of all its troubles.
