When we feel great, we are like electricity. We disappear from the material world and we get into another dimension, less physical, more spiritual. I know it’s difficult to understand, because these themes are rarely discussed, or maybe they’re forgotten (quantum physics), so I’d better use simple words and make some example.
A lot of people ask me if I’m the one who look for the clips in trainingwithmovies.com and I proudly answer “yes”. A lot of training colleagues and customers, who love films like me, point out content-rich clips to me and I’m very grateful for this. But when I watch a movie in order to find an interesting clip, I’m in the flow and I feel so good that I would never stop.
It’s my essential. The thing I was born for. In that moment, that can last hours, I’m like electricity, I float and I connect to the source of everything.
A friend of mine loves everything that happened “yesterday”. He’s not interested in present or in future, when he travels he only looks for history. When he learns from history or when he tells historical events, his whole body is shaking with excitement. He would spend hours talking tirelessly about ancient traditions. In those moments he feels good, he’s in the flow, he’s like electricity.
My wife instead lives in the present. If she has some kind of flour, she transforms it into something good to eat. If I look at her, I can’t see her, I can only see shadows that move in the kitchen at an incredible speed, she was born for that. If she’s sad, she tries a recipe, if she’s happy, she does the same. When she kneads something, she’s in the flow, she’s like electricity.
When they play, children, like my child or your child, are present to themselves and don’t feel time flowing. They are completely into their present experience, they can’t think about anything else, they fortunately don’t have any internal dialogue yet. They’re in the most pure and divine flow, they’re like electricity.
I could go on, but I think that’s clear. When we let our passion overwhelm us and get into our body, love for ourselves and benefits for the others arise. Beauty, art, creativity, love and all those virtues that make life extraordinary. So, all good things are related to “electricity”, the one mentioned by Billy.
Teacher: Can I ask you, Billy: What does it feel like when you’re dancing?
Billy: Don’t know. Sort of feels good. It’s sort of stiff and that, but once I get going, then I, like, forget everything …and sort of disappear. I sort of disappear. Like I feel a change in my whole body. Like there’s a fire in me body. I’m just there…flying, like a bird. Like electricity. Yeah …like electricity.
Why were we born, if not to find these moments, this electricity? I’m getting more and more convinced that our body can be “a trap or a carriage” for our soul. We only have to choose.
We have to re-awaken and go from outside to inside to light our fire again. As Antoine De Saint Exupery urges us to do in “The Little Prince”.
What about you, my friend? When do you feel “like electricity”? What are you doing in those moments? Dancing? Cooking? Reading?
Whatever you call those moments, find more of them, create more of them, the world needs your energy.
