When we feed, we must take the life energy of others. It cannot
be given. It can be offered freely, but still we must do the
taking. This is fundamental to the way in which we must process
the energy for use ourselves.
When we draw in energy from another, it is transformed through
the feeding process into energy we can assimilate and use. If
another, however well-meaning, seeks to force energy into us, it
will do us little good. The energy must be assimilated to match
our own if we are to benefit from it.
It is very difficult for us to assimilate any energy beyond
that of life. Others may draw their strength from the earth, the
elements, even the stars, but we are bound to life by our lack of
it. Some of us are more disconnected from life than others, and
this is reflected in what and how much we can feed from in order
to sustain ourselves. Few of us can feed from alternate sources,
but when we can, it is a blessing which should not be ignored.
