• The energy age is coming fast. More than ever we need to spread energy literacy. This means learning how to feel and read energy, by experiencing energetic doings, and then learning further so as to intervene in the energetic realm. In this way we grow powers formerly available only to a few adepts in each generation.

    Energy’s Way blazes a new and wider path to energy literacy and then beyond, to fulfilling our energy destiny. The new departure includes putting into words ancient, unsayable intuitions. And most importantly, using words so as to avoid dissection, which has been standard laboratory and conceptual strategy in material science.

    Dissection kills off life so as to isolate pieces of dead forms as information that can then be manipulated in machine based tech. To serve life, we do best to preserve and enhance living at each step of our inquiries.

    As one example of a traditional way to preserve living while bringing enlivening correspondences to light, consider this medieval depiction relating the zodiac and the chakras:

    To translate traditional, largely unspoken intuitions and images into words, Energy’s Way begins with understanding energy as action. This is an idea as old as Aristotle, and one that entered mainstream physics about a century ago.

    “Energy is action” relates with another crucial theme, “There are no things, only events,” or what I call energetic doings. So announced Alfred N. Whitehead in 1929 to summarize revolutionary changes in physics and philosophy of the early 20th century.

    These ideas invite us to a new way of thinking as well as feeling. For energy only becomes concrete and immediate as we are able to free ourselves from “thing” reality, or dogmatic materialism. The idea is not to replace an old ideology or set of beliefs with a new one. Rather, our challenge is to bring thinking to life, with more refined feeling and intuiting.

    This way opens as we forego identifying thoughts, emotions, people, situations and all other objective and subjective happenings as “things,” or entities fixed in space and time. And instead, we learn to think, feel and directly experience active, energetic doings.

    Energy’s Way aids this higher learning. The 12 energies known since ancient times in the East as Chakras (wheels) and in the West as Sefirot (letter, number, book), are renamed here in simple English action words as “moves” that energy makes on all levels, from infinitesimal to cosmic.

    The word choices are tentative, suggestive. Actually renaming energy in active terms is the essential.

    And then, free video instructions and written commentaries through energysway.com will aid you in exploring these moves, bodily, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Beginners, intermediate and advanced practitioners find this material valuable as the object is not to get it right, but to make discoveries in whatever ways and pace fits for you.

    Live meetings, courses and workshops are also available if and when you’re ready.

    Here are a few different ways to introduce the 12 + 1 moves, beginning with a few suggestive responses to, “Why 12 + 1?”

    The list could get quite long, to include:

    12 chakras in highest Yoga in a whole (1) yogi/yogini

    12 meridians in each (1) human body, Chinese Medicine

    12 cranial nerves in each (1) human head

    12 ribs in each (1) human chest

    12 +1 = 13 times/year our moon revolves around the earth

    But let’s cut to the chase: Here’s map of how the 12 + 1 energy’s can be expressed as “moves,” and how these correspond with the way “this,” or what’s now, here emerging, occurs.  And so with more “thing” like concepts and also traditional (Western) energy anatomy.

    In case you’re already into chakras, let me explain that I follow the Western tradition of counting from the top down.  But this is not simply  because I’m a Westerner by birth (though one who has lived in East Asia, traveled and studied in South Asia).  Western means the Hermetic tradition originating in Egypt, passed down as Kabbala, sacred to all the major mystical streams in the West.

    Most relevantly for our global culture wedded together by science and technology, the Kabbalistic mapping of 10 energy centers, plus an eleventh traditionally secret one as Genesis I has been read by mystics for 2500 years, parallels very closely what we now know as scientific cosmogenesis: purpose, light, charged particles, atoms, inorganic molecules, organic molecules or plants, animals, and then various levels of human development.

    (In the forthcoming book I’ll explain why and how I count the 12th center corresponds with the “acts” of the Sabbath in Genesis II and how mystics for thousands of years have read the whole Bible as a single, simultaneous occurring, or the 13th energy).

    Your point about thinking and speaking of energy as a thing or substance as a limiting factor helped me experience energy is a whole new way. The 12 moves you outlined not only simplified and concretized all the theory about energy development, but also gave me helpful guidelines for moving forward and outward. Thanks for your contributing contribution to spiritual growth and a healthier world.
