Everything is energy?
The assertion that "everything is energy" may be correct both physically and spiritually, but it is so general that it does not imply any realisation.
In the various fields of recent spiritual offerings, i.e. in the "New Age scene", there is a colourful array of energy terms, but not all of them make sense.
Perhaps the origin of the term "New Age" will help us. John Pierrakos, a former patient of Wilhelm Reich, had developed "bioenergetics" as a body-therapeutic method together with Alexander Lowen. Pierrakos had contacts in the afterlife through his medially gifted wife. He integrated spiritual work into body-psychiatric therapy and founded "Core-Energetics". This connection between Reichian bodywork and spiritual knowledge, according to Pierrakos, is what he called "New Age".
So on the one hand we are talking about the term "bioenergy" or "orgone" as defined by Wilhelm Reich. On the other hand, a spiritual, mental energy is meant, which is experienced e.g. in contact with spiritual beings or in meditation. Some order is to be brought into this wide field.
"Orgone", according to Reich, is a physical force, a primordial, massless energy that exists before all matter. Matter, according to this model, is nothing more than compressed, condensed energy. Orgone energy is also the origin of all living things. Reich has established that three factors must come together for physical life to arise: solid matter, water and orgone. He has experimentally demonstrated that "primordial generation" is constantly taking place on these bases by observing the spontaneous emergence of single-celled organisms from decaying matter and water.
The spiritual energy concept refers, for example, to the fact that a room, a house or a cathedral has a "good energy". When "healing energy" is transmitted with hands or with flower essences, a qualitative level is meant: positive or negative, healing or disturbing energy.
The transition between the individual "energies" is fluid, but to sweepingly claim that "prana" is the same as "orgone" and that "homeopathic information" is the same as "Bach flowers" does not do justice to the matter. Not everything that cannot be perceived is the same subtle energy. The difference becomes understandable through an analogous image. We know the difference between magnetism, gravitation and electricity. All three forms of energy are - normally - not directly perceptible because humans do not have the sensory organs for them. But the differences between the three forms of energy can be recognised very clearly by their specific effects. In the same way, different subtle energies can be experienced because of their different effects, and the more subtle these energies are, the more the effects can only be perceived on the spiritual level.
I would like to show you the different energies from the coarser to the finer levels, and we start with the physical energy "orgone".
