It is very hard to define energy. Energy is something, which surrounds us everywhere. The word comes from the Greek ἐνέργεια – energeia/ ἐνεργός – energos and means “activity”, “operation” or “active”, “working” in translation. It is the substance of everything, the essence of all things living and dead. It gives the possibility and power to live. Although it can be referred to in diverse subjects, for example physics, biology, psychology, philosophy or esotericism, the quiddity of energy stays the same. Nothing exists without energy.

According to the first law of thermodynamics, energy is constant. In an isolated system, as Universe, no energy can be created nor destroyed, it can only transform from one type to another. Human, as an open system, exchanges energy with the environment every day, sometimes by giving, sometimes by taking it. The total mass of energy remains the same. The same can be said about biology: life is only a constant change from birth to death. During that period an organism can be vital or feeble, young or old, strong or weak – it’s all only a transformation of energy from one state to another.
From time-to-time everyone has felt weakness, a state when people have less energy and power, they can catch a cold easily and have a worse performance than usually. Under this condition people are more tired, upset and get easily sick. The destiny of every weak organism is to die because of the loss of vitality. That’s also called elderliness.
But what could be the cause of an illness and what to do to avoid it?
Traditional medicine mainly cures the symptoms not the real cause of an illness. Moreover, most medicines are highly toxic and while curing one, many other body cells are being destroyed. But as sickness is a result of maltransformed energy, people can also cure themselves by the power of thought. It is quite surprising how effective it can be and how old the techniques really are. Energies can be moved in all directions – from good to bad and conversely. Usually, behind every sickness is a psychological problem or concern. Negative thoughts create negative emotions and negative energy reflects immediately on the physical body. By solving the problem, also the illness can be cured.
There is no special secret nor something beyond one’s abilities. The only thing is to concentrate and forgive the mistakes made by yourself and others. Hate can create only hate, the importantance is not to carry that in yourself. Happiness brings good emotions and positive energy and doesn’t allow any space for ill being. As people get older, they gain more experiences and when leaving something unsolved, problems only get worse. The amount of negative energy enlarges until one day more complicated illnesses come, for example cancer. Theoretically, by living your life in harmony, people could also increase their life span.
One good example is Li Ching-Yun, who was a herbalist, martial artist and tactical advisor. According to the legend, he reached over 256 years old. At the same time he was said to look like a 50-year old. When being questioned about his secret of longevity, he answered it to be a tranquility of mind. He suggested to sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog. Healthy body is the result of a clear mind and right thoughts.
Maybe understanding and loving are the closest qualities that describe best the meaning of these movements. Materializing things is a definite mark, that everything carries energy and that the energy is constantly moving. The only art is controlling that. Not everyone is capable of doing such “miracles”. Although a human eye cannot see the energy, it doesn’t mean, that it does not exist. The physical appearance is only half of the whole. Not external, but internal eyes are those, who see most clearly and precisely.
Understanding the importance of energy – not only that it keeps working our cars and home appliance – could rise the life quality for many. It could reduce the amount of chronic illness and extend life spans. Not everything can yet be explained by science, still it doesn’t mean it’s not possible. Now, when scientism has taken over creationism, the only question is, are people ready to look beyond?
