To shed light on the nature of Universal Energy (Reiki), I have decided that, rather than writing a long-hand description, I will present simply several magnificent quotations from the most brilliant minds, describing energy wonderfully.
‘When all forms of energy are accounted for, the total amount of energy in the universe is constant. In any conversion of energy from one form to another (light to chemical, mechanical to electric), energy is neither created nor destroyed. This is the first law of thermodynamics.’ Life: The Science of Biology, Purves, Orians, Heller & Sadava. (2003)
‘At high enough energies, particles can be born out of a background of pure energy (waves), exist for the briefest while, and then dissolve again into other particles or return to the background sea of energy.’ The Quantum Self, Danah Zohar (1991)
‘All particles can be transmuted into other particles; they can be created from energy and can vanish into energy. In this world, classical concepts like ‘elementary particle’, ‘material substance’ or ‘isolated object’, have lost their meaning; the whole universe appears as a dynamic web of inseparable energy patterns.’ The Tao of Physics, Dr Fritjof Capra (1992)
‘I find it extremely suggestive that modern physics has shown that when matter is investigated , it is revealed as an ocean of energy and light.’ The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, Sogyal Rinpoche (2012)
‘Energy is a by-product of consciousness; it is the demonstration of consciousness in a denser but still subtle form.’ Intuitive Wellness, Laura Alden Kamm (2006)
‘A therapeutic touch practitioner and his patient entered a magnetically shielded chamber containing a SQUID detector. The practitioner held his hand close to the patient, and a baseline recording was made with the SQUID. Then the therapist relaxed into the meditative or healing state that is the focus of the therapeutic touch method. Immediately the SQUID detected a large biomagnetic field emanating from the practitioner’s hand.’ Energy Medicine, James L. Oschman (2000)
