The great thing about quotes, and especially spiritual energy quotes, is that they can reaffirm our existing beliefs and they can also give us fresh perspective of thinking and framing our mindsets.

Spiritual energy itself is hard to define. Hard to measure. And harder to control.

In a sense, it’s literally everything. This unseen (incorporeal) force binds the universe together in harmonious function. This is a force that can dictate moments of life that exist beyond our control but we can also harness it–albeit partially, imperfectly, and impermanently. 

A good way to think about the concept of spiritual energy is to consider a lazy afternoon. As your eyes grow heavy, the choice that faces you is whether to go and take a nap or go for a run. Napping can rid your body of some of the tired feelings it has before but you may wake up groggy. That’s because it doesn’t add energy as a run would. Taking a mid-afternoon jog and getting your heart rate elevated is a way to harness the energy from your surrounding world.

Soulful, spiritual energy is similar. The harnessing of it requires diligent practice. When you feel irritated, you might “nap” by yelling, tapping your foot, or complaining to a friend.

Too serious, you make you sick. You can calling the good energy with a smile.”
