Some time ago, I attended a class on the Energization Exercises which was being taught to new students. A very brief introduction from the part of the teachers was finalized with the statement: “Remember, these are spiritual, not physical, exercises. We do them in order to meditate better, but they can’t in any way take the place of physical workout.”
Silently, I disagreed.
While I appreciated the point he was trying to make, I thought it wasn’t a great incentive for new students to care about practicing the exercises. After all, I thought, if I want to “meditate better,” I can resort to any of the other “tricks” we teach in the basic lessons, like, say, getting some wool and silk to sit on. That would not only be easier, but it would also save me fifteen minutes, which I can use to meditate!
I’ve been doing the energization exercises for more than thirteen years now, having started at the age of fifteen. Growing up with them was an incredible privilege and a great advantage, in that it made me more aware of how much of an impact they have had in my life.
From the very beginning, I was fascinated with Master’s teaching: “The greater the will, the greater the flow of energy; the greater the flow of energy, the greater the magnetism.” To me, it seemed to promise untold possibilities, and it gave me a great incentive to explore these exercises as well as I could. As the years have gone by, I have become more and more convinced of one thing: through the energization exercises, anything is possible!
And so, I thought I’d present a short list with some of the benefits that the energization exercises can and will bring into a person’s life, if done well, ranging from the purely physical to the mystical, with plenty of in-between!
Great physical strength
Let’s get to this one first, since I’ve been itching to say it: even without the additional energy and willpower that these exercises bring, they can be a formidable form of physical training. I am no authority on the matter of the body, but I can state the facts as I’ve lived them: since the age of thirteen, I have not done any kind of regular physical exercise, and my work keeps me sitting by the computer all day long. Yet, I am very strong, for the sole reason that I energize.
One interesting thing about “energization muscles,” by the way, is that they become very soft and pleasant to the touch when relaxed, and very hard when tense. By comparison, my observation has been that “gym muscles” tend to be tense much of the time.7
