How to feel the energy?

Nikolay Mokhov, author from the Dark Side of Business

- I feel on top of the world... I'm so excited! Like I'm in love! I'm in the flow! This is energy, isn't it?

How do you answer this question? I do not even know... Oh, I've just remembered a story about this! A young man made a million, lets say dollars. So he decides to celebrate. He goes out to restaurants and clubs throwing money around like confetti and stuffing cash down girls' underwear. He is in the zone, and he invests the rest of the money in a new business. So he asks in the middle of the party:

- Am I full of energy?

What should we answer? Do you already have an idea on your mind? No? After all, yes? Well, mark it somewhere. I just remembered another story.

Everything I'm going to say next is a lie. At the same time, everything I'm going to say will be true

A guy created a startup, then successfully sold it to a venture fund. What did he do with the money? He keeps the money on his accounts, and he wants to attract investors for his new project. This character will not even ask anything. He knows whether he is full of energy or not.

Now let's figure it out from the beginning, from the first question, which of the three characters is full of energy, and who is not? Well the most advanced ones are already smiling:

- You can't trick us, Nick. We've been there. Feeling uplifted or in love does not indicate is not an indicator of energy.

Right. It's not. It's a different thing. Our emotions and our mood are not an indicator of fullness or emptiness in terms of energy. We have all seen resilient and rich characters that move around the world with a mournful expression on their faces and are ready to dump their troubles on any stranger.

Ok, but as for the money, everything is clear one is squandering, the other is cautious and smart... The first is as empty as a barrel, and the second can keep the fortune. Makes sense, right?

From a regular person's point of view, it makes perfect sense. And in the energy world... It could be anything. History knows examples of how spending on models and clubs surprisingly multiplied wealth — this is how the owner of Playboy magazine acted. And keeping money in bank accounts on the contrary led to the loss of all savings.

Why am I telling you this? There is no universal rule when it comes to feeling the energy. We cannot provide a descriptive model and tell you what is the right way to act, and what's not. Life strategies of one character are not applicable for another one... There is also a factor of time: what used to be a successful business scheme yesterday, could be a crime today. And in the world of energy, what could be an adequate action a second ago, could be almost disastrous right now…

And most importantly — as soon as we start talking about energy, we go beyond the capabilities of language. Human language is useless here. We cannot describe the world of energy in words...

— And so in your bosom,
All that lives in it, hide jealously, - wrote the German writer Pfau somewhere on the way to Switzerland-the homeland of all exiles and revolutionaries. And Tyutchev echoed him from Russia:

- A thought, once spoken, is a lie...

I agree with the poets. I would like to carve in stone a warning to all travelers who walk our site:

Everything I'm going to say next is a lie. At the same time, everything I'm going to say will be true. All I want to tell you is fiction, a game of the imagination. At the same time, it is an experience based on observation. An honest diary of a sincere and meticulous researcher of the world of energy... In short, both statements are true — the whole story that follows is both fiction and truth.

And those who are not able to fit these statements in their heads should stay by the stone. They can read the inscription again. Sigh and swear:

— That's bullshit!"

And then go back. Home...

Has everyone left? Is there anyone still here? Yeah. The most curious. Well, I warned you. Now...



How are the coolest among us being controlled?

School teachers remind me of elephants on a rope. Do you remember this urban myth? In Africa, a small elephant was tied to a tree with a rope, so that he couldn’t run away. The elephant grew up, but he got used to the rope’s power, which he could now easily tear off. Nevertheless, the habit was stronger than common sense. At the same time, the latter isn’t something they lack. Elephants are highly intelligent animals. They could teach some humans a lesson…

Dentist's Spartakiade. Or the life of Spartacus

— I used to run like a wolf! I looked at everything in a skirt. And now?.. — says Sparta-cus — a strong man in his 60s.

— The computer is frozen — I can't do an X-ray. Let's go for a smoke, — Spartacus is the dentist of dreams. Even in the middle of treatment, he can offer a smoke break on his balcony, the way to which is through the hallway with a shelving unit. On the shelves are Soviet books on dentistry with new-fashioned magazines...

Heavenly place

Far away from the yacht, closer to the shore, tourists were surfing the sea on water skis and jet skis. Children were wading in shallow water, and you could watch them from the little white house on the slope. From this house, you could hear the laughter of the vacationists, the squeals of the children and the roars of the engines. The housing in this area was blatantly called the “Heavenly place”. And in this heavenly place, an older couple was discussing their plans for the day:

In the times of Father

My father played a mean joke on me. Our discussions, though rare, always left me in a state of slight to heavy confusion. For example, when I was five years old, he told me: “A man could never imagine two things: infinity and eternity”. My mind, young and inquisitive as it was, decided to test that statement. I sat down in my room and tried to imagine the supposedly unimaginable entities. This led to intense drooling.
