A Rhythmic World
Life on our planet is all about rhythm.
Everything oscillates: inbreath and outbreath, high tide and low tide, day and night, waking and sleeping.
Our hearts beat in rhythm. That’s what keeps us alive.
Rhythm is made up of rise and fall, activity and rest. Often we think only in terms of activity, measuring our days by what we’ve done; but rest is what shapes our actions and makes them meaningful, just as the pauses between notes allow us to make sense of music.
The same applies to our own energy.
Four Kinds of Energy
Energy is about much more than physical tiredness. Generally speaking we have four kinds of energy: physical energy, emotional energy, mental energy, and willpower.
