Energy depletion in a human being

Energy depletion in a human being

by Jon Rappoport

December 15, 2014


As in: energy depletion.

Without energy, the individual feels trapped. In that state, he seeks to conform, fit in, survive long enough to die of old age.

Body and mind deploy various feedback mechanisms to inform a person about his “available supply of energy,” and when these signals are taken as absolute truth, trouble comes.

“I can sense my energy is dwindling. So I have to…settle for less, or see a doctor, or give up, or accept that I’m getting older, or change my values, or tune up a victim-story, or join a group, or…”

On and on it goes.

In this twilight zone, the individual is unwilling to consider solutions that could restore his vitality. He’s already opted for a lower level of life.

In particular, he’s unwilling to explore the one aspect of his capability that works like magic: imagination.

That’s out. No dice. Preposterous. Absurd.

After all, imagination is just that spring rain he felt as a child, that unknown space that held all the promise in the world.

That was then; this is now.

Now is sober reflection. Now is routine. Now is habit. Now is empty.

Once upon a time, he read a science fiction novel and, at the end of it, he felt as if he were standing, triumphant, in deep space at the crossroad of a hundred solar systems.

Now he knows there is no such place. Now he is intelligent.

And now he has no energy.

The light that once flared is gone.

The idea that his own imagination could lead him to discoveries beyond anything he knows is fool’s gold.

Yes, once when he was twenty, he woke up in the middle of the night and walked to his window and looked out over a city and knew he was on the cusp of an endless future…but what can he do about that now? There is no returning.

So his imagination waits. It idles.

Yet…if he took a chance, if he began to dream again, if he started up the engine, if he considered offloading the interlocking systems that have become his daily life, what might happen?

What layers of dead thought might peel away?

What abiding convictions might dissolve?

What energies might be restored?

Is there a huge space beyond his common neurological impulses and rigid survival habits, where Vision can be played out on a vast scale?

Is there a different kind of life he can enter, crossing the threshold from tired knowledge into mystery?

Can he take a route around the banners and facades of his former reality after opening the door to his imagination?

Exit From the Matrix

There is, in fact, a silent channel that winds through the entire time-scale of the human race.

History does not officially record it, because history is written by winners for losers, and this channel has nothing to do with pedestrian notions of victory or defeat.

The route of imagination has no truck with conventional space or time. It invents its own, and eventually introduces them into the world.

How many stories are there about journeying knights who cross the boundary from ordinary events into a realm of magic?

The stories are messages…sent to ourselves, to remember. This place, this day, this moment is a platform from which to embark.

Adventure, with no end.

    Jon, excellent!

    My latest “Christmas” post is also concerned with human energy. It is both satirical and serious. One neat package for the true thinker.

    Peace before prosperity

    If ‘Man’ could simply:
    perceive the Truth contained in today’s post…
    believe this information… thus ACTivating their own IMAGE-nation… Man could
    achieve things beyond his current reality…
    change his own reality…
    and the world would become a better place…
    for the greater good of all….
    and “IT” can begin to hapben…: Now!

    i am grateful to you for posting this in-sight-full ancient knowledge….
    i sincerely hope it is well received by the People who are still asleep
    living out their American Dream…

    may they all awaken from the Matrix and simply try to day-Dream… imagine…
    and prove this imaginative power for their own self…
    and discover that they are much more than this body…
    and what they were conditioned to accept as reality.. is not real.

    Man is an all powerful Spirit-ual Being, having a temporary existence in a 3Dimensional world within a “very narrow frequency range.” We are here to Co-Create with our Creator/Source.

    Jon just gave you NOTICE of the greatest gift from our Creator… the PRE-sent Present of this present moment… and you have the free will to receive or refuse it…

    again… thank you my brother… for sharing this post…
    a most perfect poignant perpetual present if ever there was one…
    i was moved to subscribe today…. i am: grateful

    Jon another great piece. Truly you nailed it in a simple succinct way. I’ll throw in the concepts of Chi, vital life force etc, reflected in various cultures and how this might be the energy so rudely suprressed God’s speed all

      You took the words…

      Chi energy is available to all for free. It comes from the Earth, the Sun, and the Cosmos. I’ve only been practicing Taoist meditation for a short time, but it really recharges the old batteries. And QiGong (medical Tai Chi) is wonderful as well. “The Healing Light of the Tao” by Mantak Chia is a great book.

    When my mother was in an old pension house, I lived nearby and I visited her almost everyday.

    She was diagnosed with Alzheimer but was still in a good shape physically. She liked to walk, so I would take her for long walks along the river side’s trail where the house was located.

    She enjoyed it. After a while, we would sit in silence on one of the benches that were on that trail and we would contemplate the river for a long time.

    On our way back to the house, she was telling me how she had enjoyed swimming in the river and that this had made her day. She really believed that she had swim in the river and would ask me if we could do it again tomorrow. Of course, I would say yes, we will do it again..

    I’ve noticed that when we came back from these long walks, she had more energy and would walk much faster then she did when we just left the house.
