In contrast to tradition Chinese philosophy, which look at the body mind spirit as a connected whole, modern science tends to look at them as separate subjects, e.g. physiology, psychology, theology, etc. as if they operate in separate worlds with different rules.
Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japan Open International University Doctorate of Alternative Medicine, conducted experiment on water crystals which show that thoughts attitudes and emotions (mind) can actually affects the physical reality (body). Essentially, Dr. Emoto captured water’s ‘expressions.’ He developed a technique using a very powerful microscope in a very cold room along with high-speed photography, to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples. By producing different focused intentions through written and spoken words and music and literally presenting it to the same water samples, the water appears to “change its expression”. Some of the results are as follows:
Dr. Emoto’s work confirms with the Chinese wisdom that mind and body are connected. The cultivation of the mind, therefore, not only change the mental reality of a person, but would also affect body and the physical reality of the world.
