Energy is interest, curiosity and exploration.
What we attend to, we energize;
what is energized, governs our world.
Energy, when applied to calm and insight,
can free the mind from stress and suffering.
Energy is making a balanced effort to sustain wise
endeavors rather than using brute force.
May I use my energy and best efforts to
investigate my true nature,
and eliminate doubt and worry.
In reflecting on the best use of my energy I ask,
“Do my intentions and actions benefit my
welfare and the welfare of others? Do they
lead away from stress and towards peace?”
With mindful awareness, I channel my energy
towards that which is supportive and nourishing.
My energy comes from the strength and the
courage to have an open heart.
