THE ENERGY BODY
Your actual physical body is only a small part
of your true self. What you see is not all you get.
The human body is
not just the blood and bones we perceive on the physical plane.
made of energy that permeates every layer of our being, it is
What we know as the physical body is just energy that is vibrating
more slowly than the energy that is
beyond our standard perception.
You will hear about The Aura or energy body,
the Chakra system , Meridians,
Marma, Nadi and Other energy structure systems.
There is no one correct and absolute map of the energy
body. Every one of the descriptions and explanations is correct
as applied to that particular awareness of the energy body
. There are millions upon millions of possible ways to see perceive and
understand the components of the energy body.
Different cultures focus on different things and manifest
awareness of the energy body in different ways. As an individual or a
culture move from novice to adept the perceptions and
concepts deepen and expand.
Descriptions of the nature of scientific facts, or of historical
events are different when offered to young children than they are
when offered to adult specialists. In this day of mass communication and global interaction we may become
confused because we become aware of different levels of information and
different cultural expressions all at once and often separated
from the original context .
These things need not be seen as conflicts or
contradictions but simply as the same thing or parts seen from
different viewpoints and with different tools. Whether you are
aware of Chakra or Elembe or Ao, Or meridians and Nadi and Marma.
Whether you recognize a system of 5, 7, 12. 186 , 860000 chakra,
centers, features, etc. of the energy body, you are right and you
are also expressing incomplete information.
In a way , all such concepts are just metaphors and sketches intended
to assist us in developing our understanding and realizations
about life , reality and our place and functioning within all that
is, has been, or will be /could become . Any description or system of explanation of the energy centers by
any name is no more an actual expression of the real thing than a
blue print of a house is a building or adequate to
understand the concept of buildings .
