Connect to Sources of Energy
Taoist meditation and spending time in nature connect us to external sources of energy that nourish us. Trees, sunshine, lakes, and gardens help us relax and studies show that nature reduces cortisol and lowers blood pressure.
When we don’t regularly connect to external sources of healing energy, our ego expands. We can forget, lose track, deny or ignore the need to rejuvenate through nature’s energy. The ego begins to think it doesn’t need anything external to thrive. Then, we grow increasingly less connected to the natural world.
If we are full of healing energy, the body knows how to function properly and fight off disease. If we lose touch with the healing energy of nature, we aren’t prepared to fight off sick energy from the stress of our environment. Try one meditation for five minutes a day over the course of thirty days. There are 81 exercises in this book to choose from:
