The Empowerment Column 2014: How to Recharge Yourself

By Rev. Thabiti

There’s a vast variety of things we use that require a battery to operate such as a cell phone, a remote control or portable laptop.  The Battery is also referred to as The Power Source in all electronics.  When we reach a point where the charge on the battery in our cell phone has depleted enough we plug it into the charger and restore the power.  Restoring is also the way we recharge our own human battery.  Basically through proper rest we reconnect or tap into the inexhaustible power within us that heals, recharges, restores and renews us.

Rest and Activity are the 2 Steps of Progress because in each step one foot is active, while the other foot is at rest.  Rest is the basis of Activity.  This is why if we go all night without little or no sleep and then go to school or work in the morning our senses will be dull and we are more easily annoyed or irritated.

The Law of Compensation means, the further we pull back on the bow the further the arrow will shoot.  Therefore, the better our quality of rest the more dynamic our activities will be.  It is through a proper amount of rest that we are able to recharge our batteries.  Doctors will prescribe lots of rest if one is injured or sick because the healing process best operates during rest.  Sometimes rest may also include taking time off from the harmful things we do to ourselves.

All functional electronics operate better and last longer when the battery is charged.  A weak battery could cause a malfunction or the lights to become dimmer or break down during an operation.  This is the same with our minds and physical bodies.  When we are well rested we are refreshed, stronger and better prepared to take on whatever comes our way.

Because rest is the basis of activity is why a regular meditation practice is vital.  Measured studies show that meditation done properly provides rest that is deeper than deep sleep.

Another aspect of recharging our lives involves the importance of money.  Income revenue or payday recharges our bank accounts.  A low bank account balance is similar in characteristics to having a weak battery.  In other words, we cannot do as much or plan for much until we reenergize financially.

In the gym we do reps (repetitive movement) that equal a set of exercises.  Right after a set of exercises like sit-ups or push-ups we naturally breathe heavier and must take a momentary rest break (battery recharge) before beginning the next set.  We may also become sleepy after an explosive earth shaking sexual orgasm due to the amount of energy spent in that process.

Energy is the power stored in batteries to be used or consumed as needed.  The healthier we are, meaning rested and clean on the inside, the more energy we will have.  The more energy we have, the stronger we are. The stronger we are the more likely we are to succeed in any aspect of life.  Improper rest leads to a weaker immune/defense system and makes us more susceptible to illness.  Injury or illness is one certain thing that can interrupt or ruin the best plans or intentions.

There will be those who will try to circumvent the consequences for the lack of sleep or proper rest with stimulants, coffee, manufactured sugars, caffeinated teas, pills, drugs and energy drinks.  For too many it is nearly impossible to begin a day without satisfying our ‘energy drug’ addiction.  For all of these things, too much use leads to abuse.  Due to the same Law of Compensation mentioned earlier also means that no one gets away with anything no matter how it may seem on the surface and pleading ignorance does not exempt us from consequences.  In other words, we often discover the wisdom when it’s too late that we cannot fool the laws governing our existence and that the importance of healthy lifestyle habits and proper rest cannot be overstated.

Some of us are trapped in a daily cycle of stimulants to make it through the day and alcohol or drugs to help us fight off the after effects of those stimulants so that we can fall asleep at night.  Then we awaken the next day to start the whole process again until our body system finally shuts down one way or another.  For those who live this way will require a serious and honest look at themselves to see how this routine is showing up as ailments, symptoms and irritabilities with people and just life in general.

There are no books, articles, columns or intellectual structural combinations of words we can read to empower us if our batteries are too weak or nearly dead.  Therefore to stay empowered means that we must make necessary changes to improve our ability to keep our battery charged and recharged so that we can keep up with the challenges of modern day living.

In this moment we shift our attention to the gratitude we feel deep within for this awareness and to the Supreme Intelligence that heals and sustains us.  There is a voice within us that says “Look to me for I am your source and I am your supply – Come to me and I will give you rest.”
