Part one: Energy
We generally refer to outstanding people in terms of inborn talent, but is it possible to take what we are born with and upgrade it to its higher level? This work could be called by several names, here I refer to it as: consciousness development. Doing consciousness development work or consciousness awakening work – could not be understood without taking into account – energy.
First, what is energy? Energy is the power to do work, but each kind of work requires the appropriate kind of energy.
Now, nothing happens without energy being involved, all communication, all creativity, all activities and states of mind – involve energy.
In general, the word energy refers to a concept that can be paraphrased as “the potential for causing changes”, and therefore one can say that energy is the cause of any change.
We usually don’t relate to human energy at all. For it is not registered by normal organs of perception.
But if you want to know the source of all phenomena, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
Energy in spiritual traditions is called Prana and it is known by different names in different cultures; In Japan it is ki; in China it is qi or ch’i. It is also similar to the Greek concept of pneuma; and the Hawaiian concept of mana. In the West it is sometimes termed “universal life force”.
Energy stretches from low levels to high ones. The head works on a finer and higher energy, then the energy of manual motoric work for example.
People differ by the level and power of the energy level they are operating on. In fact the most important factor of human life is: on what kind of energy level is a person working on.
The main difference between high and low energy is the degree of fines or coarseness of the energy. The energy in operation in athletic activity is very different than the energy being in operation while a person is writing poetry, or doing any creative work, or reaching a high consciousness level; consciousness is one form of energy, very different from kinetic energy or electrical energy.
People are generally running on quite a coarse energy, which is good mainly for being at work, for physical activity and the general goings on.
The difference between fine and course is that fine is of superior quality while coarse is composed of large parts or particles; of inferior quality or appearance; not fine in material or close in texture.
Coarse-matter Energy that is in the solid state of matter, as opposed to fine-matter, which is energy in nonmaterial form such as thought.
High energy is used in accordance with the spiritual progression of people.
The more spiritual, or the more one has a developed consciousness – the higher and finer would be the energy his system is running on.
It is impossible to upgrade one’s spiritual or consciousness level without upgrading the level and quality of one’s energy.
A spiritually developed person works on a high level and powerful energy.
Now, energy is not seen or felt but it has a great effect.
Powerful energy has got a powerful effect upon the energy system of others.
People differ in their response to this powerful energy; the more a person is based in his lower departments; Motoric system, sexual system, emotional system, reflexive reaction and generally being based in the ego level – this people will suffer from this high and powerful energy in another, for it shuts them down – anesthetize them and generally make them feel impotent and it raises in them a great objection to the person with high powerful energy.
The opposite happens to people on a comparatively higher level in their development, this high energy elevates them, charges them, uplifts their spirit and makes them feel as though they just had a cold shower in a very hot summer.
Part two: transformation of energy
Energy in the human could be in one of two states; raw energies (which are all the energies in the human system) and transformed energies.
The law of thermodynamics states: Energy cannot be created nor destroyed. What does this mean? It means that energy can only change its form from one type to another.
Energy transformation or energy conversion is the process of changing one form of energy to another.
There is the role of energies in the transformation of man himself.
Gurdjieff defined man as a ‘cosmic apparatus for the transformation of energy’.
Man’s being, his actual existence and his potentiality for attaining a fuller or higher life – equally depend upon transformations of Energy.
The ancient Alchemists believed the state of our being could be changed, and this goes together with upgrading the level of consciousness. They called the day to day consciousness – lad, and the transformed consciousness: gold.
The child has an ego, the person who went through a process of transformation – should have a selfhood.
Right after the transformation – every telephone ring, or going out, he feels as though this gentle being in him is in danger.
For in this state he wishes for it to last forever.
Now, how is this done?
There are mainly two ways; one is the gradual way, doing meditations, Yoga, techniques, prayer etc. and self-refining in all aspects of life, work on the emotions, blocking infantile emotions and strengthening the mature emotional response. This way is not very stable, the searcher after truth is moving from high to low and the other way around, he is climbing on an oily rod, two moves up, and then a few slides – down.
low emotional influence, such as being hurt emotionally and getting personally involved, having self-doubt or self-judgment and objection towards the s. teacher – all these will cause a drop down of one’s high energy level.
He becomes blocked to higher energies, locked in himself.
The second way could be called: a reversal. It is a kind of miraculous happening. It usually happens by a consciousness teacher. He finds the low point in the student and by a certain method – is causing a sublimation of the low energies into a higher ones. It is a kind of quantum leap in one’s energy and consciousness level. It could also happen by itself; People suddenly turn upside down, it is not that their world is reversing, they reverse, or something in them – does, and then they are no longer the same as it was. They woke up. It could also happen after a significant event like getting married, and in the morning after, he wakes up – different. A person gets up and he feels very different, as though something rigid has melted. His being became soft and flowing, he feels energy is streaming through him, he has a feeling of a ring vibrating around his eyes. They say that until then they suffer from emotional imbalance, and suddenly they start to experience strong inspirations, a powerful creative drive, and an inner need for peace and inner quiet.
This process of doing the reversal point – should be done several times, until the high state is being integrated.
Most methods are gradual, the ‘reversal point’ method is rare.
The moment the switch from low consciousness level – to a higher one will happen, this immediately causes a change in the kind and quality of the energy which is being processed through him. The moment the consciousness is being uplifted – immediately the frequency and level of energy – would change as well.
And the great feeling that one has after his consciousness level is being uplifted – is the feeling of high energy passing through. It is like the effect of psychedelic drug, one feels like he is in a parallel universe. Everything seem different. This high and powerful energy is powerfully affecting all his being and various systems. Everything seems very real. It feels like a great healing.
But after the energy drop – all memories of the high state – are gone, and they seem like a fantasy.
If we give marks out of 10 to the energetic level of a person. Then a low level gets marks between 3 or 4, while after the transformation – he could reach a mark of 8 or even 9.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
― Nikola Tesla
“Energy is liberated matter, matter is energy waiting to happen.”
― Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything
“Yes, your transformation will be hard. Yes, you will feel frightened, messed up and knocked down. Yes, you’ll want to stop. Yes, it’s the best work you’ll ever do.”
“Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice.” Heather Ash Amara
“Energy is everything.”
“A person’s energy can tell you more about them than their own word.”
You are energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed. Energy just changes form.
The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.
A person of intellect without energy added to it, is a failure.
