Living Water


“Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it.” ~ Lao Tzu

The Test

Fill a couple of glasses with water. Stick different words on the glasses, in any language. One glass is “pretty”, another is “stupid”. One is “thank you” and the other is “abandon”.

Freeze the water. Water turns into snowflakes when frozen. Scrape some of that frozen water and look at them through a microscope. You’ll see that, the snowflakes from the glasses containing positive words make gorgeous forms. Whereas snowflakes taken from the glasses with negative adjectives will look exactly like what they’re called: Jagged, deformed, broken.

Encouraged by his findings, Emoto began studying the effects of prayer, blessings, and spoken words. Not surprisingly, his results indicated that water crystal formation was also sensitive to these things--yielding his current hypothesis; “Molecules of water are affected by our thoughts, words, and feelings.” (source)

Magical Waters

As children, my father used to read Al.Fatiha over our water when we were sick, nervous or just in need for good luck. Whatever it is the cause, that water worked.

In Java, there’s a guy who reads prayers over water for anyone. And people flock there in hordes; with all sorts of wishes and unrealized dreams. The fact that he’s been doing this pay-what-you-want business for nearly TWO DECADES (with sustained customer loyalty) should say something about the credibility of that water.

Now, imagine having a group of people praying over a single bucket of water. Imagine millions of people gathering over the same source of water saying nice things. Like the water from Zamzam and Lourdes.

A staggering thought.

Why does it work?

  • Maybe because water ripples. Like kindness. And smiles. And Ofo Ase.

  • Maybe because we are just that susceptible to suggestion and words and thoughts. And because almost 75% of our body is water, makes susceptibility IS our nature.

  • Maybe because 71% of the planet is covered with water. And there is nothing more yielding, more flexible than that powerful force of nature.

  • Or maybe this whole water thing is just quack?

What do you think?

Bless Donna, Eko and Ben. May their waters always run deep..
