The Energy Body (Prana)

“We give many names to God, even though He is One. The same is true of energy. There is nuclear energy, electrical energy, muscular energy, and mental energy. All of these are vital energy or life energy, called in Sanskrit, pranic energy or simply prana. Prana is called Chi in China and Ki in Japan. Some suggest that the nearest traditional concept of prana in the West is the Holy Spirit of Christianity, a sacred power that is both immanent and transcendent. Prana is often called wind, vital air. The Bible begins its description of Creation with the sentence, “God’s breath moved upon the waters.” Prana is God’s breath. Prana is the energy permeating the universe at all levels. It is physical, mental, intellectual, sexual, spiritual, and cosmic energy.

“All vibrating energies are prana. All physical energies such as heat, light, gravity, magnetism, and electricity are also prana. It is the hidden and potential energy in all beings, released to the fullest extent as a response to any threat to one’s survival. It is the prime mover of all activity. It is energy that creates, protects, and destroys. Hindus often say that GOD is Generator, Organizer, and Destroyer. Inhalation is the generating power, retention is the organizing power, and exhalation, if the energy is vicious, is the destroyer. This is prana at work. Vigor, power, vitality, life, and spirit are all forms of prana.”

~ B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Life

Prana is.
Prana is everywhere.
Are you aware of it?
Are you working with it?

Breathe deeply, my friend. Relax, and let it flow.
