Albert Einstein so consummately demonstrated what is now a widely held scientific fact, that everything is energy – and therefore, is it possible that “everything is because of energy” (Serge Benhayon, 1999)? If so, could everything we do, say and think have an energetic source?
Energy can be felt and experienced in many ways. We hear the words of the person who pays us a compliment, yet behind their words we can feel something that lets us know they don’t believe what they are saying. We have all experienced someone walking into a room and the atmosphere changing, whether to a more joyful or to a heavier presence. It is all energy and we do feel the change. When someone is angry and it feels like we are bearing the brunt of their anger, can we not be left feeling heavy or somewhat less, and perhaps even angry ourselves? Is it possible then that we absorb another’s expression of anger and allow it to trigger a range of emotions within ourselves?
If someone treats us gently and lovingly, often we can feel that love within ourselves and for others; and if someone treats or speaks to us judgmentally and we take that energy on as our own, is it possible that we can become judgmental either of ourselves or of others? And what of cooking a meal, making a bed or doing the ironing – does the energy that these actions are done in – e.g. love, joy, fun, anger, jealousy, sadness, tiredness – possibly leave an energetic imprint which transfers to the people eating the meal, sleeping in the bed or wearing the ironed clothes? Is it possible that unless we are aware of energy, that we nonetheless feel the energy of others but instead of being able to observe it, end up taking it on as though it were ours?
If everything is energy, and with the possibility that “everything is because of energy”, then just like everything else, we too are a mass of vibrating energy; we are also living in a sea of energy that we are a part of that is constantly passing through us, and us passing through it. Therefore everything must affect everything else. The possibility then becomes that every word, thought, and action that goes out into the world must be felt, affecting one way or another, all life.
So what of music? Within this paradigm, it too must also be energy. Haven’t we all at some time experienced the emotion of music and how it can pull at our heartstrings? Music can entice us to feel happy, sad, jealous, angry; it can call us to feel patriotic; it can take us back to places from the past in an instant; it can remind us of loves lost and draw us to re-live the pain and sadness attached to that time; or we can feel and smell summertime and lost innocence from listening to a song from our youth.
But these are the emotions of music, so what of the energy of music? If we can feel the energy behind someone’s words when they speak an untruth to us, or we can feel and also absorb the energy of someone else’s anger impacting our body, what of the energy in which music is written and performed?
This may sound preposterous to some, but what if we can be affected, not just by the emotions of music but by the energy in which music is written and performed? If at any point during the creation of performance of music, this is done in anger, jealousy, greed, for fame or money, or involves drugs, alcohol or pornography, is it possible, if everything is energy, that these same energies are also being served up to be ingested by the listener? If we could feel these energies entering our body and affecting us, would we choose to listen to different music or choose to listen to music differently?
Everything is energy and the possibility that “everything is because of energy” certainly gives us plenty of food for thought and much to ponder on in regard to the many and varied aspects of life, up to and including our own contribution. If pondered on deeply we become aware of the responsibility we all have in discerning what we choose to involve ourselves in. We may also consider how important it is for us to be aware of how we are affected by everyone and everything. In turn, we may also consider how we are affecting everyone and everything, as closely as the person standing next to us, or as far as the outer reaches of the universe….
Is it possible then to consider that we feel everything energetically and that –
“Everything is energy, and therefore, everything is because of energy.” (Serge Benhayon, 1999)
-Is indeed, simply scientific fact…?
