Wasted Energy

by stewart

So much of human thought and activity is misdirected and potentially wasted. Consider the situation of over eating.  Not only is our body slowed down and made ill by excess weight but the individual may have to diet and exercise to off set this problem.  Additionally, consider the energy which was used to make the money to purchase the food, store, select, prepare and even raise the various items.  All this activity, so, the individual might create a problem for self.

As well, this process is similar in other dimensions of human activity and is brought about through greed.  As one may be greedy for food, so, one may misdirect psychological and spiritual processes; resulting in all manner of disjointed activity.



Check-out my two books: Sufism for Western Seekers: Path of the Spiritual Traveler in Everyday Life and The Ferryman’s Dream.  Both books are available through Amazon.com or local bookstore.
