Hey guys, loving all the high-level ideas and connections floating throughout this board. But I'm more interested in (arguably) more practical applications of the esoteric knowledge that's so scattered around.

To that end, i was wondering about my fellow seekers's opinions on the internal energy systems described throughout the various cultures or the world.

So what are your opinions on the systems of chakras, meridians, auras, etc. that are scattered throughout different cultures? Are they feeble attempts at more primitive cultures to describe their influence on higher realms? Are they complete bullshit used to keep the population listening to their shamans? Do you think their is any practical purpose to these systems and did anybody get it "right"?

Our senses are based on receiving stimulus from the environment. Our environment is a reality, built using light as a building block. The different shades of colored light indicate how the vibrations of the environment are outgoing/incoming to the person and environment.

Personally, I feel there is little rigor in the chakra systems. My belief is the ability to visualize is underdeveloped which makes real empiricism difficult. The amount of practice it takes to 'really' use an energy system is underestimated by most.

Meridian theory is interesting. The earth is the centralizing grounding force where the sun/cosmic is the rising outward force. The idea that balances/imbalances express themselves thru a complex of points along lines of forces where ethereal energy runs is the most sophisticated and powerful in application in my view.

The general difficulty of reliable application is the way the system's correspondences are understood. Most use very subjective ways of probing a balance. The visual aspect of the chakra system works nicely with the proprioceptive nature of meridian theory.

Besides the 'objective' methodology of using a energetic model when attempting to heal or develop, our society has a predisposition to see things in overly rigid terms where there is a definite process where a result must be achieved. So the general bias is along the lines of "how can I achieve this result" rather than "how did this result occur". In most healing processes the natural process of balancing is interrupted. The resolution is seen as being 'fixed/cured' rather than realization existing perfection.

The main purpose of a system is consistency. So primitive caused so many different ways to understand the same thing that there is no understanding.

>more practical applications of the esoteric knowledge that's so scattered

Consider the 'beginning' as a fundamental causal force which according to complicated series and sequences exerts itself as an apparent effect. Historically, symbology was devised to signify crude observations of different aspects of the fundamental causal force. The desired effects became those things which where considered evoking/invoking the symbol.

3 videos about Sri Aurobindo's take on energy. They are fascinating and IMHO Sri Aurobindo's and The mothers work is well worth knowing on the climb up the mountain.

Consciousness is a fundamental thing, the fundamental thing in existence  it is the energy, the motion, the movement of consciousness that creates the universe and all that is in it  not only the macrocosm but the microcosm is nothing but consciousness arranging itself. For instance, when consciousness in its movement or rather a certain stress of movement forgets itself in the action it becomes an apparently unconscious” energy; when it forgets itself in the form it becomes the electron, the atom, the material object. In reality it is still consciousness that works in the energy and determines the form and the evolution of form. When it wants to liberate itself, slowly, evolutionarily, out of Matter, but still in the form, it emerges as life, as animal, as man and it can go on evolving itself still farther out of its involution and become something more than mere man.

– Sri Aurobindo, The Life Divine, pp. 236-7.
