Rewards, Congruence, Energy, Choosing Meditative Equipoise

     The energy associated with ordinary striving ("doing") to obtain transient (mainly external) rewards has an addictive pull, yet at the same time, an unsatisfying, shallow, cheap (fast-food-like) quality to it. By default, we fall forward into this energetically, in our heads so to speak.
     Congruence has a qualitatively different energy. There's no addictiveness, no pull (stillness), it's entirely satisfying, and has a deep, precious, timeless, at-home "being" quality. By choice, we can always lean back into this energetically (in our head-space) - 'the backward step' - as if we were in sitting meditation, yet this fully includes active life, with mind-heart kept open, radiating warmth, in meditative equipoise.
