"Energy vibrates and forms patterns in nature. The same patterns appear at all levels of existence. Patterns that exist in the world outside the body exist also in the world inside the body...The fluids are the transportation system of the body. They underlie presence and transformation and play a major role in the overall counterbalancing of tension and relaxation, rest and action. The characteristics of each fluid system relate to a different quality of movement, touch, voice, and state of mind. These relationships can be approached from the aspects of movement, mind states, or from anatomical and physiological functioning. All fluids in the body are essentially one fluid."
