Finally, all of these ingredients are supported by one’s life energy: What you need to nourish yourself physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. If you run out of life energy, your life literally ends. But before you reach that point, you must guard against depleting your life energy too much, which can lead to exhaustion, depression, and disease. At the very least, when your life energy falls too low, it becomes difficult to sustain creativity and your important responsibilities. Having enough life energy for pursuing one’s important activities, and a reserve of life energy when life becomes most taxing, must be key goals for any individual.
