You Are Deluded By Your Own Energies

You are just submitting yourself to Energy. The primary error of human beings is that they get deluded by their own energies. They submit Consciousness to Energy. They have this idea that Energy and Consciousness are the same thing, perhaps. 
But basically their life involves submitting themselves as Consciousness to Energy, to motion, to impulses, instead of realizing what Consciousness itself is and perhaps finding Energy to be the same thing ultimately.
They pay no attention to Consciousness Itself 
and just submit themselves as Consciousness 
to the play of energies. 
And there is nothing Enlightening about that. 

Energies appear everywhere. You feel them in people, you feel them in various places, and so forth. Ultimately all of our experience is an experience of Energy. Everything is Energy. Everything is pervaded by Energy, and in some real sense everything is just a form of plain old Energy. 
This is not only a metaphysical proposition or a mystical proposition. It is a scientific presumption that everything is a state of Energy, a state of light. 

But to know this, 
or to believe this, 
or even to experience this, is not Enlightening. 
Merely to submit to energy is 
not to be Enlightened.

There’s something pleasurable in submitting to energy. After all, that’s what we are doing when we are enjoying sex or food. Anything we enjoy is a pleasurable association with energy. But likewise, everything we don’t enjoy is an unpleasant association with energy. 
We are all the time submitting ourselves to energy and getting involved in circumstances of energy. There is nothing particularly illuminating or Enlightening about such submission in and of itself.
Therefore, the Way that I consider with people is not a way of merely submitting to experience or energy. 

It is not a matter of submitting to the kundalini force 
or any expression of energy. 
It is not a matter of submitting to life and experience itself. 
The Way that I consider with people is the Way of 
understanding what we are doing 
so that we can transcend this bondage.
