Choosing whatever kind of “energy” we’d like to have in this moment…
“energy” we’ve lived with at various times in our lives…
familiar feeling “energy”…
whatever quality of energy might be of benefit right now….

choosing  that specific energy…
accessing a “feel” or “sense” of that energy…
plugging into that energy….
“self-generating” the “energy” from within ourselves…
“….choosing…plugging in….connecting….”
….becoming…being…living….

We all have multi-outlet power strips in our homes!
Each and every day….we’re plugging into actual, specific outlets,
connecting with the powerful flow of  electricity…
charging…recharging…and powering our devices and appliances…

~

similarly….
plugging into our own inner power strips…
plugging into our potential positive qualities and positive “energies…”
“….choosing…plugging into….connecting….”
living life in an energized, positive, meaningful, enjoyable manner

a few types of energy I’m wanting to connect with…
choosing to connect to….
learning to “self generate…”
self generating the energy of these qualities….

“choosing….plugging in….connecting…accessing that dynamic energy…”

self generating positive qualities and energies…
committing to living positive qualities, as much as possible, as often as possible…

so many beautiful, energetic, inspiring qualities….
mentioned in so many “prayers”…
from so many traditions….
each “prayer”  encouraging us to nurture, develop and live with….
the “energy” of so many precious qualities

~

A truly beautiful Buddhist “prayer”…
encouraging us to live with the “dynamic energy” of positive qualities,
wishing for and supporting the happiness and freedom from suffering..for ALL beings
“Shantideva’s Prayer”…
written by Shantideva in 700 A.D.

Another exquisitely beautiful, encouraging and inspiring prayer….
St Francis’ Prayer

“transforming” negative energy into dynamic, positive energy
plugging into and connecting with the powerful “energies” of the positive qualities..
peace…love…pardon…faith…hope…light…joy…
…consoling…loving…giving…pardoning…
……….living……….

We truly do have the  potential
to live with the energy of any positive qualities..
that potential energy is available within us…
we simply need to learn how to access those chosen energies


We actually can self generate the energy of these wonderful qualities…
we can learn to self generate any qualities we might aspire to…
that choice is ours to make….
the choice to “plug in” is ours to make…
the potential to actually live our chosen positive qualities is within each one of  us…

Part of Nurturing Thursdays, hosted at Becca Given’s site, On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea.  Please link to Becca’s site to enjoy Nurturing Thursday posts by Becca and by other Nurturing Thursday bloggers.

The idea of “plug in” was from a very insightful, inspiring and practical website Second Firsts and book, Second Firsts,  Live, Love and Laugh Again  by Christina Rasmussen.  “Plug in” Chapter: Life Reentry Stage 2: Plug In   pages 65-95

    I agree, this Buddhist prayer is a truly beautiful “prayer”. And I think the world needs it today more than ever.
    And I always loved the ‘Prayer of Saint Francis”.

    • Both Shatideva’s Prayer and the Prayer of Saint Francis are so beautifully moving that they practically take my breath away when I read them…yes, the world really, really, really needs the ideas, inspirations and aspirations in both of those prayers, these days…I agree….
