All this stuff around us: steel railroad tracks, the ice in our drink, the bricks in our home, the cars along curbs, the sofa we're sitting on, planet Earth, all this stuff we rely and depend upon -- all this is just a fraction of the universe. This atomic world is only 5% of it. The universe, of which we are part of, is mostly energy.
Yet, how often do we approach life and the other as energetic forces? Aren't we lulled and lured, totally preoccupied, by this hot, atomic world for its solidity and stability? Atoms 'make up everything', each carries an enormous space and is in constant flux and movement. How trustworthy are our five senses in observing all this stuff around us? How often do we tap into our intuition and primal awareness when dealing with energy from others? In yoga, we work with energy in our seven major chakras, the organs of our soul, as much as we do our bodies.
