   Energetic people accomplish. They attract success. Also they attract men by their excess energy. Talking to an energetic man, one feels enthused and energised. Energetic people are welcome everywhere and they go about life with a cheer which is their own.

   A small percentage of population is energyless. They are not able to leave the bed, nor go about any work with enthusiasm. They sag in work. Extreme cases go into depression. Others are tense. Smaller versions of energylessness express as clumsiness, inefficiency, quarrelsomeness, self-pity and pessimism.

   The causes of energylessness are many. The type of food, the quality of food, metabolism, temperament, attitude to life, upbringing may be the original cause of an energyless state now. Life becomes a burden when there is less energy than needed. Several remedies are there such as physical exercise, nutritious food, self-discipline, attention, organised functioning. Each one of them can relieve in a great measure. But I would like to consider a spiritual solution to this problem. As elsewhere, here also there are temporary as well as permanent remedies.

   Spiritually, there is an endless SOURCE of energy inside and if the inner source of energy relates to the external source of universal energy, there will be a surge of energy from inside or a downpour of it from above, flooding the person with energy.

   An industrialist from Madras who was on a visit to the USA had a tough schedule and was dragging himself. On a day when he went for an important meeting, he found himself at a low ebb. He was frightened that he could not accomplish at the meeting which was one hour later. Remembering the spiritual method, he began to call energy, repeating, "Energy, energy". In a few minutes he began to feel the change inside and he persisted. Soon he was filled with energy to overflowing but he did not stop invoking the energy. The hall where he was sitting began to fill and in an hour overflowed with rich energy, vibrating visibly.

   The method of invoking the spiritual energy is simply to call the energy inside us. It responds like a person. This will be a temporary method. As we have a good feeling towards a person, we can develop a good feeling to "Energy" and then energy will be a permanent possession.

   Health is a natural possession of the body while disease is artificial. In the words of an Avatar, one in a thousand diseases is real. When the body which is naturally healthy submits to the dictates of the mind, it loses its natural health and lapses into disease. The body allows the mind to tinker with its health up to a point but when its life itself is in danger, sometimes it rises to the occasion and cures itself, to the surprise of the medical profession which gave up the case as lost. This is the same ability body uses to save itself from accidents and dangerous situations.

   A man drove his car into the waters of the Krishna from the river bank and somehow managed to open the door of the car and reach the bank where he fainted. He could not remember how he escaped. It was the body consciousness that awoke and saved itself. Being subconscious, it cannot come back to memory.

   Above our mind lies the zone of the Higher Mind where understanding comes without Thought. He who attains there is the Muni, one who has attained mauna. The Rishi who has the drishti centres himself in the Illumined Mind which is above the Higher Mind. Ideas here are not of thought but of Light. Our body due to atavism believes in illness. When the Idea of pure health generates in the Illumined Mind, it can travel down to our body and replace its faith in illness, thus abolishing illness forever. This is a yoga siddhi. These are minor versions of it which the common man can use.

   An American who was enamoured of such ideas came to me one day saying he had a sprain in the back and asked whether it could be cured thus. The method is to imagine a shaft of Peace in the head or heart and gently direct it to the back till it reaches the spot of pain and allow it to collect  there so that it would dissolve the pain. He returned to me that evening saying it did not work. I advised him to take a pain killer which he refused. Next morning he came to me and said, "I went to a film in the playground and was sitting on the floor. The back was hurting. Suddenly I felt my head was chill and something was moving down my back and peace was filling me all over. It stopped at the point of pain and collected. There was a cracking sound and the pain vanished."

   He was unable to follow the method as his educated mind did not believe what something deep down accepted. While his mind was drawn away by the film, the exercise of the morning was taken up by the body and the Peace entered to cure the pain.
