“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ~Nikola Tesla
“We cannot create or destroy energy, it simply transforms.”
Today’s Mind Bullet topic is a big one that ties into our fascination with ENERGY: entropy.
The first law of thermodynamics is the idea that the energy cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system.
The second law of thermodynamics is entropy — within a system, disorder is always increasing.
We see entropy all around us in our chaotic, daily lives, as things break down, get rebuilt, and break down again. We see entropy in action as we age, watching our own bodies break down. In fact, perhaps nothing illuminates time itself as a forward motion better than entropy. You never see things un-break unless you are watching a film in reverse!
Fighting entropy has spawned untold businesses. Think of the tidying up empire Marie Kondo has built based solely on reducing the chaos of clutter in our lives. Think of the success of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, which hauls some of our chaos away, leaving order for a time before entropy begins its creep once again. Consider the job of every auto mechanic!
Whether we know it or not, the pursuit to slow the entropy in our lives even our own minds — our thoughts, can bring us a sense of peace.
And what better way to fight entropy in our minds than meditation! Meditation is a concentration of energy, sitting quality and restoring balance. (Check out our interview with Fred Gratzon on the importance of meditation.)
Listen in for more on accepting the inevitability of entropy and using the power of meditation to refocus, sweeping away some of the chaos in your mind.
