Change, Effort and Convenience – Where do you Channel your Energy?
Many people take time to do what they know they need to do. Such was the case with going vegan for me. Why did it take time? Because to change requires effort and re-channeling of energy that is going into the current modality of living. To do nothing and not change is very easy, comfortable and convenient. All we have to do is keep doing the same things. It is preferable to continue along the current course, the current path, as we do not need to move. It is very comfortable and convenient to stay exactly where we are, putting our energy into the same things. To change, we need to move our actions and behaviors. We need to move our energy away from what we currently do. The “current” “channel of energy” is conditioned into us. It is hard to divert the energy from existing negative pathways. They already exist, and have been a part of you for so long. Letting go of our attachments frees our “energy cable”, allowing us to re-channel it into what we know we have to do.
The main reason for not taking up the effort to change and re-channel ourselves into alignment with Truth, Love, Good, Right, Morality, is because we are lazy, and cowardly. How did I become vegan? I told myself enough is enough, I am being a coward by not living up to the values and morals I know I need to live by. When the courage is developed to stop being a coward and live in Truth, then the laziness also drops, because the courage motivates you to no longer be lazy.
