Everything in the Universe is made up of energy. That energy flows in, around and through every single thing. The amount of energy in the universe is finite, and is constantly being recycled and changed from one form into another.

Since everything in the Universe is both connected to and made up of energy, it is possible to manipulate that energy. We can force it away or draw it in. We can change or control what it does. We can actively transform it from one form into another.

The Universal energy is completely neutral. Energy may be used for positive or negative things, but the energy itself has no alignment. There is no such thing as inherently negative energy that could not be used for good or inherently good energy that could not be used for harm. All energy comes from the same source and returns to that source in due time.

Followers of the Way are encouraged to understand the true nature of energy and work with it regularly. Some people can feel the energy vibrations in things and people naturally, but anyone can learn with practice and discipline. Becoming more connected to the universal energy and learning to use it is something that can be done by anyone. No one is separated from it unless they choose to be. It is our natural state to connect to and use universal energy, it is only through limiting practices and beliefs that we cut ourselves off from it.

It is, however, impossible to fully cut oneself off from the universal energy. You’re made up of it, so some of it is always there. If you were able to truly disconnect yourself from it you would die, and the energy that was within you would go back to the source. Likewise if one opens up to it more, it is possible to extend life and have a better quality of physical being.

Magic (or magick, as some refer to it) is simply a manipulation of the universal energy. Magic is something any person can learn, since we are all connected to the energy. It must be understood though that the energy used in magic can be drawn from somewhere else (people, animals, plants), and we should be mindful of where we draw our energy from. We should endeavor to only draw pure energy from the source. It is possible through conscious act or negligence to do harm when practicing magic.

Understanding the universal energy may be complex, but it is easy to grasp that it is in everything. It can be used and changed and should not be wasted. It is part of our practice to use our personal energy and the energy around us responsibly and without harm to others.

    Well i was actually loving column until the contradiction. You said all energy comes from the same source. Then turned around and said that the energy from magic comes from somewhere else. I find it difficult to take you seriously when you don’t believe the words you write. I agree with your 1st statement. All energy comes from the source snd is neutral in nature. But…there are some more competent and attuned. They vibrate on higher frequencies and can easily manipulate the energy around them. There is no magic, just energy. But if your spirit is asleep, you wont have a proper connection to it.

      I’m going to approach this as kindly as I can: it’s rather harsh to accuse me of not believing what I write. My views grow and change over time as I do, but when I’m writing something, it’s something that I do believe at that time.
      As it turns out, you were right about what seemed like a contradiction in paragraph 6, but I think I was likely writing too much too fast and mangled that paragraph. (It’s by no means the first time that’s happened to me over the years.) I’ve edited it to say what I actually meant. In the future maybe you could ask the author if a contradiction was intentional or accidental. Sometimes we’re just human and make a mistake.

      Now, on to your thoughts… Yes, I absolutely agree that some people are more attuned. Some naturally, some through great practice. I think it’s a real blessing when someone has it naturally. And again, definitely yes on the idea of a sleeping spirit. So many people are cut off from the source, they’re just taking in enough to live and really not experiencing all that there is. You don’t even have to be religious to get into it, but you’ve got to have something more than just existing.

      By the way, I took a look at your blog. You’ve got some good stuff over there! The font is murder on my eyes though. I’ll have to remember to turn off page styles in FF the next time I visit.
