Universal Energy

The energy that runs through your body is not imaginary or an illusion.  It is as real as sunlight, as true as sound, and as natural as the wind.  Do not underestimate the healing power or magnitude of that energy.

The third chapter of the Yoga Sutras speaks extensively on how energy is important for enhancing power and potency in the human body.  The Vedas calls energy the "responsive energy," the "life force," the "prana" which runs through the body and holds it together.  This force consists of both the physical (paramanus) and the non-physical (akasha) components of all things.

The Upanishads stress that in both the universe and the individual human being there is a power that never changes.  That power is something that is greater and grander than either the universe or the human being.  "It is a power that never changes."   

The Bhagavad Gita (7:4-5) mentions the life-force that extends throughout the universe and is beyond earth, water, fire, wind, space, mind, understanding, and individuality.  The life-force is the energy that pervades all living and non-living entities everywhere.

The person who gets in touch with this never changing energy and can feel its presence flowing through his/her very being will never cease to exist.
