What is subtle energy and why it is important to awaken, and learn how to use this mystical power...
Everything is energy! Every single experience that arises within consciousness is a movement of energy. Even the appearance of a material world is formed by energy. Energy is the medium of this perception. Modern models of quantum physics or quantum mechanics confirm this truth which has been known since ancient times by adepts of internal subtle energy cultivation. As physicists look at matter in deeper and deeper micro levels, what is revealed is mostly empty space, movements of energy, and ultimately a super-intelligent all-pervasive unified energy field.
I can’t ever express enough gratitude for having been exposed to subtle energy and mind training techniques... The additional resources offered by this knowledge and practice has helped to face and overcome extreme challenges many times. Sometimes even completely deflecting problems. Or, providing the deeper insight to avoid a catastrophe.
One time, years ago at about age 21, I found myself with a knife to my throat. The sudden poke at my throat brought my awareness sharply back from where I had been drifting...
Taking responsibility for life is one of the keys to being liberated right here, now.
If we are always feeling at the mercy of life, then of course there is a feeling of bondage.
How can we be at the mercy of life here? In every moment there are infinite possibilities of experience.
Stop blaming others, and don't blame yourself. Instead be Aware. In every moment, be present.
If your attention is elsewhere, if you are unaware of what you are really doing and why; then how can you be making a choice about the results from your actions?
There is no need for us to struggle against the results we are receiving now from our past actions.
Instead, if you don't like the results, then make different choices. Engage different actions. And, get different results.
Well-being and Wholeness in Life is a strategy. Work to make yourself whole or divided. The work is actually the same...
Are you consciously choosing?

This is a Question which is not meant to be answered with words, mind, or intellect... Rather this is a "Contemplation" to be directly inquired by turning the attention within to see what is.

Simply through Loving Kindness WE can Live in a Global Golden Age. Proven mathematically many times before, with just the "Defense" (Fear) Budget of the USA alone WE can clothe house and feed the ENTIRE WORLD POPULATION. Imagine then if the whole world followed this example of Dharmic Behavior, not only would the Human Population have basic needs met, but there would be a Global Utopia of Abundance, Peace, and Harmony...
This is the Simplicity of Ultimate Truth, and the natural function of One Whole in Harmony which is called Dharma in Sanskrit. Where did we break away from COMMON SENSE to engage in Adharmic (Destructive/not-harmonious) behavior. Understand why this is called ignorance by the Sages. When the Light is on and one can clearly see The Nature of Self as All Pervasive, then Harmony, Peace, and Loving Kindness makes perfect sense even for selfish reasons.
People tend to get caught in these "boxes" of strong opinion, belief, or a Filter which prevents one from realizing the Truth, Simplicity, and Infinity of Being...
We tend to be looking to fill our heads with more ideas, or to already Know alot, and try to prove we Know so much.
The thing to do to Really KNOW, to Realize the Perfection and Immortal nature of the Self, is to be ready to let go of knowing, thinking, or all these ideas and opinions...

Reading these books is a form of what is called "Shaktipat" in Ancient Yogic Traditions. This is Powerful Energy Transmission and Empowerment, as anyone who reads/encounters these books has the Omen/Promise of Moksha and Attainment of the Supreme Form of Enlightenment!
To be Honest - these books transmit a level of Wisdom that has rarely ever been written or able to be conferred through words. This is because the writing style of these books uses the words to anchor Transmission of Immense and even limitless amounts of information, yogic empowerment, and direct transcendental experience - through the medium of energy transference (saktipat). Energy holds incredible amounts of information, and in fact this entire manifest reality is governed by, composed of, and INFORMED by a world of energy as vibrations of light and sound. Even an apparent "physical" reality when looked at from a micro OR macro perspective - can be seen to be nothing but movements of energy within vast space...
Normally, with the attention left unchecked in a semi-conscious state (habitual state of unconscious reaction) energy goes all over the place following reaction to constant and created stimuli. Tapas is the force or energy which drives the movements of these experiences, reactions, and/or actions. For example, Tapas is the heat which causes you to seek shelter from the sun, the feeling of hunger which seeks to fill the belly with delicious food. It is the feeling caused by the smell which draws one near or pushes one away. Tapas is the friction of impatience building as one waits in line, while imagining all the things that need to be done. Tapasya then is the conscious choice to extract one's identification with, and compulsion to follow these various drives.
This is not some dogmatic, or religious fantasy; Tapasya is pragmatic reorganization of one's source of power from external props to within, and instead of dispersing energy - gathering it as increasing potential under sharpened Conscious direction and focus...
Tapasya is often translated as "austerities", and a Tapasvi is often called an ascetic when translated into English... These translations may seem accurate based on Appearances, or from a view of witnessing something and projecting one's own ideas of the world or culture onto what is seen. However, this does not indicate the reality of what is occurring as "Tapasya" - which is not a form of "penance" to atone for or purify "sins", nor is Tapas a form of Self-Denial. True Tapasya is none other than a Super Refined Art of Self-Control and Surrender. If this statement appears to be a contradiction then read further to discover the Inclusive Nature of Totality and wholeness, which as in the Reality of Infinity brings all aspects and attributes in One Unity as Yoga. With the pragmatic understanding that Infinity (the Self) is so Vast, Infinite, and limitless - that everything the Universe is, it also is not...
