the Power of Words

"Doing the right thing will always make everything balance."
Ah Quon McElrath, Social Worker/Social Activist, impatiently to a legislator "explaining" the balancing of priorities to her.

"The dog was created especially for children. He is the god of frolic."

"A dog owns nothing, yet is seldom dissatisfied."
Irish Proverb

Japanese researcher Dr. Emoto spent years studying the crystallization properties of water. Water with different characteristics, he found, produces very different crystal structures.

Dr. E. photographs these for documentation.

Polluted water produces brown, ugly structures. Clean water from pristine mountain streams blossoms into brilliantly bright structures of ethereal beauty.

Dr. Emoto got the idea to talk to water.

"Thank you," he said to a batch of water before crystallizing it.

The resulting crystals were as beautiful as angels.

"I hate you," he said to the next batch.

The crystal formed was dark, misshapen and ugly.

Dr. E tried writing the word

"Beauty" on a piece of paper, which he then taped to the next batch of experimental water.

The crystal structure formed was lovely.

Ancient people trusted in the magical power of words.

A prayer written on papyrus, then dissolved in water,

and drunk down,

had the power to bless and heal

they believed.

What other ancient magic have we discarded?
