Magic Minute #4: Energy is Love

Well, not all energy of course. The electricity companies would be fascinated to hear they are generating and trading love. In a way they are, because there is a way in which we can see all and every damn thing in the whole entire universe, from minuscule to gigantic, as Love – including electricity. Don’t ask me about weapons and disease, I’m not (yet!) enough of an enlightened being to give the smart answer.

I’m pointing at the essence, the energy that flows in and through everything, call it life force, call it Pran, call it Ch’i. It’s natural force, the force of nature, the power that pushes the root and stem out of the seed so they reach downwards to collect energy and upwards to express it. Express in two senses; the sense of communicate it, and the sense of channel it out, let it flow.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the lines of demarcation between physical and spiritual energy. Both are love, because in their purest form they are ‘being-ness’, the essence of life with all the surface stuff stripped away. If love wasn’t the essence, then we wouldn’t seek love. May sound twisted, but everything we do is in search of love. Money? Power? Physical expressions of the energy that is love. Love describes what we are, and what that flower is, even that tin can or tractor tyre. Matter is physical energy (ask Einstein), soul is spiritual energy, and when we are clicked in to the flow of either or both, we experience bliss, peace and power, which we know (in an ‘unknowing’ way) are our true nature. Which is Love. Where Nature itself fits in to all this comes next.

About Aidan

The Ecology of the Soul is the culmination of a lifetime of study and practice of hatha yoga and Raj Yoga. Aidan studied with BKS Iyengar, and was a dedicated member of the Brahma Kumaris, teachers of Raja Yoga, during his 20s. The basic understanding of the Soul and God is pure Raja Yoga, but it is the 'ecology' principle that drives the system's emphasis on balancing our spiritual powers. We return to our natural state of happiness, contentment, peace – and power.
