I was exposed to a lot of people and philosophies lately. Though nothing really happened in my life apart from a plan for a huge career shift, a lot happened with people who were really close to me. These people, I believe, are the very extensions of my own self.
They faced many issues in life and I was lucky enough to share the burden with them. However, as the time passed by I got to learn a lot of things. The first one was that the number of people in your life doesn’t really matter. If you just have one person who would stand by you when you really need them, your life is going to flow in a great direction.
Actually, we believe in letting a lot of people enter our life and that hardly makes any sense. It is because we are not just ‘people’. We are atoms, we are energy and that is unique to everyone. As a matter of fact when people get to be a part of each other’s lives, they bring their points of view, their positive and negative forces and even the burdens of their past.
Our energies are composed of our experiences and it is quite important to see whether these energies interact well with each other. Now, i don’t say that there is some magical way in which you can reas the energy of another person. However, when you make a decision to let someone enter your life, you are letting your energies interact with each other and that too in a very intimate way.
This is why people who have never met each other and interacted through other means of communication still feel a connection. Meeting someone directly or living with them means more energy interactivity. However, even when I am talking to someone on the phone, a small part of our energies are interacting and they are bound to leave an impression on both of us.
Therefore, if you can handle all the people and their energies, it is fine. However, if you are like me and like to keep it simple then go ahead and meet a lot of people but save most of your energy for yourself. Let go of a good part of your energy to your loved ones.
It is a three fold path. Follow 50:40:10 rule. Save 50 for yourself, 40 for your loved ones and just 10 for the rest. Try it. I am sure you will experience a lot of great things. I will tell you more about what i learnt in later posts.
