  Essence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Essence in this sense is contrasted with accident: essential properties are properties that a substance has necessarily; accidental properties are those that it has contingently, those which the substance could have existed without having.
Existentialism is founded on Soren Kierkegaard's statement that "existence precedes essence." Inasmuch as "essence" is a cornerstone of all metaphysical philosophy and the grounding of Rationalism, Kierkegaard's statement was a refutation of the philosophical system that had come before him (and, in particular, that of Hegel, his teacher).
"Essence," in metaphysics, is often synonymous with the soul, and some existentialists argue that individuals gain their souls and spirits after they exist, that they develop their souls and spirits during their lifetimes.

 The Doctrine of Essence, Hegel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-05)
The terms in Essence are always mere pairs of correlatives, and yet not absolutely reflected in themselves: hence in essence the actual unity of the notion is not yet realised, but only postulated by reflection.
Essence — which is Being coming into mediation with itself through the negativity of itself — is self-relatedness, only in so far as it is relation to an Other — this Other however coming to view at first not as something which is, but as postulated and hypothesised.
The problem or aim of philosophy is often represented as the ascertainment of the essence of things: a phrase which only means that things, instead of being left in their immediacy, must be shown to be mediated by, or based upon, something else.

 Essence and Personality
When first hearing of the laws of essence to be discussed here, there is a lamentable automatism in our formatory apparatus that ejaculates something like "But that is not all there is to it!" "But it is much more complicated than that!" and so on, whenever confronted with the law-conformableness of human psychology.
The essence it was meant to protect becomes increasingly suffocated, under-nourished, and is in danger of dying altogether.
Essence, which had been severely restricted due to the graceless growth of false personality like a crust around it, now begins to receive essential nourishment once again in the form of direct impressions of diverse and finer energies.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Essence and Existence
As the essence is that whereby any given thing is that which it is, the ground of its characteristics and the principle of its being, so its nature is that whereby it acts as it does, the essence considered as the foundation and principle of its operation.
Furthermore, essence is also in a manner synonymous with form, since it is chiefly by their formal principle that beings are segregated into one or other of the species.
The characteristic attributes of the essence are immutability, indivisibility, necessity, and infinity.

The Essence of the number 2 is a cycle when everything seems to be consolidating and this is decidedly a period of growth.
The fact that this is such a long period of 9 essence suggests that it is apt to be a very extended period of passionate feelings, a long drawn out love affair with a prolonged ending, or perhaps a sustained effort of some sort.

 Glossary of Terms: Es   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-05)
The development of essence according to Hegel goes through three phases: "reflection" in which differences show themselves as opposition and build up to contradictions; Appearance, which is the struggle of Form and Content, with each successive form revealing a deeper content; and Actuality, the reciprocal action of Cause and Effect.
The concept of Essence is very central to Hegel's Logic, being the second of the three books of the Logic, and Essence was a central target of his critics who claimed that philosophy should be based on Being not Essence (see Existentialism).
For Marxism, constructivism and essentialism are not mutually exclusive, since the meaning of essence is taken from the Hegelian genealogy rather than the subjective idealist current and is understood as social and historical, critical activity.

 Flower Essences and the Reiki Stream
Flower essences can be dispensed in several ways and during the aforementioned period, I administered the flower essences with myself in the standard oral form while running regular hands-on Reiki sessions.
Although I periodically suggest a certain flower essence therapy for a client (to be administered in the traditional, oral fashion outside of Reiki sessions), I primarily use flower essences in a topical format, in both distance and hands-on sessions.
However, because the flower essence patterns seem to work in a similar fashion as the Reiki Keys, i.e., their characteristics coincide with a particular harmonic resonance chord pattern within the Reiki Stream itself, I simply allow the wisdom of the Reiki Source to determine the flower essence patterned activity period.

 SUMMA THEOLOGICA: Should we say that the three persons of God are of one essence?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-05)
Further, it is not usual to say that the person is of the essence; but rather that the essence is of the person.
Because "nature" designates the principle of action while "essence" comes from being [essendo], things may be said to be of one nature which agree in some action, as all things which give heat; but only those things can be said to be of "one essence" which have one being.
So, when we say, "three persons of one essence," taking essence as having the habitude of form, we do not mean that essence is different from person, which we should mean if we said, "three persons from the same essence."
