The Distribution of Energy

(3.4) The distribution of energy throughout our body is interrupted by resistant, critical, discordant thought, but especially by fear.

Our bodies produce energy by consuming food (3.30). This energy empowers our physical and mental experience, just as hydration and sleep do.

Resistant” indicates a power struggle between directed attention and rumination.

Critical,” in this context, refers to a tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts. The popular term “critical thinking” is completely different, in that rather than a prejudice towards unwelcome facts, it welcomes them in an effort to analyze the most information available prior to making a decision.

Discordant” describes argumentative, antagonistic, inharmonious thoughts.

As an individuation of nature, we should aspire to live in harmony with all created things.

Fear leads to resistant, critical and discordant thoughts.
