When the weather is really cold, there are several things people have done over the ages to warm up. For the sake of this analogy we’ll assume in the United States that you can just turn up the heat on your thermostat. After a short while, you’ll start to warm up.
As I sat in my car in the Southern California heat waiting for an appointment, I had my air conditioner on full blast. Then out of concern for idling for too long, I turned it off and it amazed me how very quickly my car heated up and I started to burn up… um, air on please! But it reminded me of how cool (no pun intended) it is that once a certain type of energy is applied to an otherwise heated environment, one can change the temperature in his or her immediate environment. But once one neutralizes that energy, the temperature of the environment presides over him or her once again.
I heard it well put years ago by Jimmy Evans from Marriage Today, and our ambassadors will probably remember us talking about this in class. In a nutshell: there is dynamic energy, static energy and destructive energy. Static energy is really energy “unclaimed or unused” and can only remain static for a time. It will eventually be claimed by another energy force. The easiest one being destructive, because it’s easier to tear down than build up. Picture a neutral object like a pen lying flat on a table. As soon as the table is tilted or it’s legs are wobbly, will that pen go up, or go down?
Pastor Diego Mesa of Abundant Living Family Church also shared a good example in line with this thought: “Thermometers merely reflect the temperature in an environment, whereas thermostats regulate the temperature in the environment.”
So as you gear up to enjoy your summer, be a thermostat in a real sense. Set and regulate the temperature around you. Be deliberate and aware of your state and attitude, remembering that remaining neutral keeps you subject to the temperament of those around you. If they’re happy, the good thing could be that you might feel happier after being in their presence (we’d like to think that’s what you experience after a Passion Barre class :). BUT if they’re down, you might wonder why you’re feeling a low for no exact reason…
