Water Transformation

We Indians are quite familiar with rituals and ceremonies and various mantras performed under strict specific norms in a Yajna or on some sacred occasion. Anyone tried to understand why??

Well, here is one aspect of it : How materials (in this example water) transform when they interact with sounds and words. Perhaps this article (unknown author) on an experiment conducted by a Japanese (what a shame that it is not an Indian!!!) will throw some light on this matter.

A proof to give meaning for sprinkling of holy water on our heads - our crazy run to get a drop of holy water during a kumbhabhishekam of a temple, and for our longing for a drop of THEERTH at temple
The Power Of Words Over Water
Can water be affected by our words?
Dr.Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist, believes so. And he has proof. 

Dr. Emoto took water droplets, exposed them to various words, music, and environments, and froze them for three hours. He then examined the crystal formations under a dark field microscope. And he took photographs.
The results were totally mind-blowing.
Here’s a photo of ordinary water without any prayer spoken over it. The molecular structure is in disarray

The photo below is water after the prayer was said. It’s simply breathtaking. (I now have a great respect for praying before meals! More on this later.)

Dr. Emoto also exposed water to Heavy Metal music. Here’s how it looks like. Looks sad if you ask me.

Here’s water exposed to classical music and folk dance music.. Looks much better, right?

Next, Dr. Emoto stuck a piece of paper with these words: “You make me sick. I will kill you.” Here’s how the frozen water droplets looks like under the microscope…

Below is how water looked like with the words “Love” over it. The difference is amazing.

This is Polluted water…
This is water from Lourdes, France. Utterly beautiful, right?

Wait A Minute—
Aren’t You Made Up Of Water?
Yes! 72% of your body is made up of water.
Imagine how your words affect your own body.

When you say, “I’m a failure,” or “I’m hopeless,” or “I won’t get well,” imagine how these words weaken your health.

Make a choice to say the best words out there. Say often, “I’m wonderful,” “I’m beautiful,”   “I’m God’s child,” and “God has a great plan for my life!”
It’s not only water.
Dr. Emoto also experimented with cooked rice.

He placed one cup of cooked rice in two airtight jars. On one jar, he wrote, “I love you,” and on the other, “You fool.” Everyday for 30 days, Dr. Emoto would say these words to each jar of rice.

After 30 days, the “I love you” rice was still white. But the “You fool” rice was so rotten, it was black. How can you explain this?

For Starters

The BIBLE:- Genesis:- "God made man in His own image. In the image of God, He made him."

What do you think that is supposed to mean?

Lets take up another question. What are your ultimate desires in life? (not desires like cars, houses,treat etc.)

All of us if we think from within in an unbiased manner will come up with a similar answer.
Here are the things one wants in life:-
  1. The first thing is the desire to live. We all want to live on eternally.
  2. We wish to know and understand everything, in other words have perfect, complete knowledge.
  3. Still not satisfied, we desire to be happy forever. No one likes to suffer due to pain or ill health.
  4. Given these things, next we wish to be absolutely free.
  5. Even that does not end it all, lastly, we desire to be all dominating. To rule and have power over the universe.
 How surprising it is that we have just described the attributes of God as we know and has been described in all religions. God is eternal, all knowing, absolute bliss, unbounded illumination, without any pain or sorrow and of, course The Almighty. These attributes are actually the fundamental properties of every individual soul.
This perhaps explains the quotation at the start of this post.

The purpose of one's life is, as has been written in our shastraas, to realize one's soul and experience the Divinity in oneself.
It has also been said that we can realize ourselves (our soul, and God) by three independent routes. Karma (deeds), Bhakti (devotion) and Jnana (knowledge).
So, how is that we are at least seemingly so different from God as far as these (5) attributes are concerned?
Please do reflect and comment on the matter, sit back and dive deep into yourself to find out answers : "for it all lies within".
