You are an energy body. The physical material of your body is simply the manifestation of your energy body being expressed or resonating in one dimension. If you want power you must build your energy body. When you have an energy body which is configured properly then your martial arts solidify and are flexible.
The energy body must be maintained as correct. To be correct means that the configuration is right and the energy body is pliable and not fixed unwillfully. There are two sides to how one can influence the energy body since there are two sides to awareness in this dimension and it is this dimension that your kenpo functions. There is the dream world and there is the waking world. I want to talk about tending the energy body through the waking world today.
There are different ways that the energy body can be built up or torn down. One of the primary ways is sexual. By preserving and controlling the sexual energy and that method goes back for thousands of years in the martial arts of China and other Asian countries, Improper management of sexual energy can drain you and make you sick very quickly. But this is not a topic I want to address here or at this time. What I would like to talk about today is capping your energy body and making it pliable through drains that are produced through your interaction with other people.
You see in your life there are a lot of people that know lots of things about you. They know who you are and what to expect from you. They are intimately connected to you and most of these people you will perceive as advantages to your life. Like your family, friends and acquaintances. When you develop relationships with people they begin to know your life. They know your agenda. They in essence begin to claim you as property and because of that you lose energy and become dissipated. Less of a unified cohesive identity. When people know everything about you then you become part of their world and that is damaging.
So when you give yourself mindlessly to other people you damage your energy body. When people have expectations of you that are beyond a certain level you are energetically hurt. For example when people know your patterns completely you become available to them for constant energetic drain. You like to think for example that if you give yourself entirely to your family in terms of availability that it is a good thing because it is being honest. But you have to understand that when you allow hooks to be put into you in totality you are weakened. You have to keep people under control because they will steal your energy.
You really cannot be totally open as a person and have a strong energy body. One reason is that you were born alone and you will die alone. The truth is that you are alone and the only thing that is really true and solid is yourself. We like to think that love for example is real and a good thing. To a degree it is a good feeling thing but if you allow it to come out of perspective and run wild it will drain you. In other words the deep love you have for your baby or child gives you things but it also is hurting your energy field at the same time because it is a very strong form of awareness and unbridled will suck energy. Of course unbridled hate is the same way.
The more you become part of peoples worlds and the more available you become, the more you are taken for granted and the more energy you lose on that basis. You become reconfigured through the tonal resonance of individuals and groups. They know what you are and who you are and therefore will drain your energy. They do this unintentionally. They want things from you and this act of wanting takes from you. Sometimes all they want is to think they know you and that action is enough to drain you.
So what are you to do? You want a family and friends. You have to work with people. You want to function in society. Well the first thing is that you have to become far less available to people in general. You must dump out of your life all individuals that are not needed. By dump I mean that they cannot know your business. You have to be extremely careful about telling people about yourself. Elaboration about your life to most people you come in contact with like at work, the gym and other places must be discontinued. It does not do anything anyway and it drains energy.
Then in terms of people you know you must cap energy as well. Since you must interact with them you will need to be selective about what they know and ultimately expect of you. They are drains as well. Your family does not need to know all about every facet of what you do. Your best friends do not either.
You always hear that many masters are secretive or mysterious. Now I am giving you some insight as to why. One cannot just spill energy all over the place. And you may say Well I know a great master and he is the most open person I ever met Dont kid yourself, he is not. He is just good at making it appear that way. And of course that is the ultimate trick. If people know you are hiding from their awareness then the act of you hiding will spill energy perhaps even more than them simply knowing your routines.
Remember when you were a teenager? Or if you are a parent now. Some parents demand that they know every nook and cranny of their kids awareness. They want to know what they did or exactly down to the letter where they have been. It does not matter what the motive is, the action still energetically damages the kid. And it whips his energy body into a configuration of fixed compliance and that is a huge drain. Ever wonder why kids rebel? Well the reason is that they are fighting to preserve energy and that is why they lie about being at the library when they really were under the oak tree kissing some girl. They are fighting to keep their power. Guess what? You should too
I will just let you think about what I have said. And if you understand it then please remember that if people know that you are deliberately being unavailable or deceiving them about your life then you lose energy anyway and your efforts are cancelled. You must shrewdly evade people knowing your full actions giving them an image that satisfies them. I mean you are giving them and image anyway. You might as well give them one that does not drain you and people knowing you absolutely does drain you. There are different techniques.
You are working out at the gym and some guy that is friendly to you says Hi Jim.. What did you do last week?. Normally you tell him exactly what you did. Instead you say I went to the seashore and hunted for shells. The truth is that you did not go anywhere and just watched TV. Daddy.. Where did you just go in the car? You went to Home Depot but you tell your child that you went to the mall. Someone you will never see again asks you your name and what you do for a living. I am a Catholic Priest and my name is Michael. Your real name is Jim and you are married with three kids.
