Where do we gain energy from? What is this energy? what runs us? these are the questions that are unanswered all the time.
To make things easier and clearer we need to understand ourselves deeper.
We generally have started thinking that the brain governs everything in the body. but then turn i might ask you a question. If you think that everything is governed by the brain, then what is governing the brain?
This is where the concept of Bio Energy comes into picture. We need to understand this system of energy which is a part of me, you and everything we see and feel around us. The deeper understanding of the self reaches you to the ultimate wisdom.
Let us understand this system of the Bio Energy and what runs ‘us’.
We primarily derive energy from seven elements.
EARTH: This is the first element in the system of bio energy. It is solid, dense, gross and very hard. It is related to all solid and hard structures that show shape – e.g. bones, muscles, teeth and nails. The Earth element is responsible for giving structure, shape and strength to the body. The earth is also responsible for gravity itself and our time on the earth is why we age.
The tanmatra for Earth element is Gandha (Smell). The small particles of earth are scattered all over the place gives us the sense of smell and the sense of security. The sensory organ related is nose. Nose is more hard compared to other sensory organs. Qualities of earth element are heavy, dull, dense hard and gross.

WATER: The second element is water. It is also called as jala or Apa. Whenever we think of water qualities like liquidity or fluidity comes to our mind. Water shows important quality of binding – e.g. if we see dry soil, we cannot make a ball out of it. But if we add water to the soil, then we can easily make mud balls. This binding nature helps in forming different structures in the body as it binds the 2 cells together. Hence this element is a constructive force. Remember that life on this planet began with water. In this water itself our DNA was forged.
The tanmatra of water element is rasa (taste). The sense of taste or the ability to taste depends on the liquidity that exists within in the mouth in the form of saliva. Dry mouth along with dry tongue is unable to give sense of taste. The water element exhibits qualities like cool, liquid, dull soft, and sliminess. Its main actions are cohesiveness and adhesiveness.

LIGHT: Light is the element through which we perceive our consciousness itself. When light falls on an object, it becomes available for us to view. Without light there is no response from our consciousness and everything dissolves.
Our body of light is far greater in size than our physical body and is not limited nor constrained by our physical world.
This body is able to move through time and space connecting us to other dimensions of reality and other life forms that exist throughout Creation.
Light activates our brain and methods of activating the brain energy are well documented in our ancient vedic/ yogic texts. Sun gazing a is a typical way of accessing this energy.
