Is spiritual energy real ?

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

If you have ever spoken to a person who is practicing mediation, yoga, Tai-Chi then you have probably heard them talking quite often about the energy and the light.

And here is the question whether this is real or just a new age bullshit ?

To answer it straight forward I have to say that a lot of it is bullshit and it comes from taking for granted stories and beliefs of others without checking and cross referencing them. Thus in a way it is like a religion - somebody tells you something and you believe absolutely this person or entity ( which quite often is imaginary ) and you ignore the facts of the reality. And then there is also a point that you are able to kill ( abuse ) anybody who does not share your beliefs despite the fact that you are praising love, mercy and forgiveness. This applies to most of the common religions but it also includes spirituality although here the act of killing is taking quite often an indirect form.

But there is also something which is real and true when somebody talks about the energy ( including spiritual energy ). Look at this simple example. Whenever you think there is an activity within the brain. The thoughts are being "carried" by the nerves first within the brain and then within the body. And you should know by now that this is possible thanks to chemical and "electrical" reactions and interactions within the cells. We also know that whenever there is electrical current it is accompanied by the electromagnetic flow and movement. And this can also generate heat or cold.
