Whenever, there is an entrance placed in this energy field, the residents lose their power of discretion, and hence, there is total waste of their energy and efforts.
Why do we need this energy field ?
This energy field helps us to discriminate those tasks or activities on which we need to spend our efforts. If we are unable to do so, due to our wrong judgement, we shall end up wasting all our energies behind those activities, which shall not yield any meaningful gain. Hence, we need this energy field to discriminate between what we need to retain and what we need to do away.
But then, why do we need to let-go?
We need to let-go in order to gain in the long-term. If we do not, we will end up hurting ourselves over and over again. We will not be able to live in the present, will keep remembering the painful past and will invest our energies in planning a revengeful future.
Sandwiched between the South and South-west, this zone ensures that after we retire and relax from a hard day’s work, we let-go our prejudices and presumptions, our ego and greed, our fears and our doubts, and move ahead with a pure heart and a clear mind, to ensure that we successfully build smooth relations with the world and master our skill-sets.
And above all, we need to let-go, for the beauty of life is such, that only when we let-go one breathe, we are able to take the next one.
