This short paper argues that energy, the potential to realize change, taking place through interaction, is the essence of everything. Nonduality and emergence play a key role in explaining why energy should be conceived as the single source of everything. The very nature of space and time also follows from it. The whole universe is just energy, and everything emerges from this energy. So the essence of everything is energy.
