The energy bank account
Lack of sleep
Too much exercise without recovery
Lack of natural light
Relational dysfunction or upset
Work that is soul-destroying
Vital alive food
Being in nature
Service to others
Being seen in our fullness
This is by no means an exhaustive list.
We get to choose, as individuals, where and how we make our energy deposits. Some people have less choice.
In the favelas in Brazil I was surrounded by laughter and generosity, more than I had experienced in many places where scarcity of most everything else is not an issue.
Our society gets to choose where it makes deposits. The neoliberal impulse is to drive up the negative deposits for all but the ‘righteous’ few. Keeping people in precarity, fear, soul-destroying work. Championing the mythology that says we must live this way to have a healthy economy.
I wonder when we might become alert to the senselessness of that myth? When a Universal Syntropic Income might be a reality.
Creativity, joy, kindness…when we enable these things to flourish, everything gets better for everyone.
This is to be Syntropic.
