Does it make me a hippy to stand in the cold snow and watch it falling in big beautiful flakes onto my car? Maybe. But there’s so much hidden beauty in these tiny frozen drops of water, it’s worth looking at closer.
A friend gave me the book, The Hidden Messages In Water, a while ago. It chronicles the work of Masaru Emotu, a Japanese scientist who specializes in alternative medicine, and particularly the “micro cluster” of water.
In his various books, the first of which was published in 1999, Dr. Emoto, a doctor of Alternative Medicine, introduced the novel idea that water not only reflects the physical world around it (as when we use a placid lake or pond as a mirror), but it also reflects the consciousness of the being surrounding it.
You’ll have to read the book to get to the deeper message (spoiler alert: water is foundational to not only our chemistry, but our collective consciousness…. ya, get the book), but the next time it’s snowing and you’re grumbling about traffic, or the cold, or your car, or wondering “why do we LIVE here?!” (I might have I’ve said this a time or two)… maybe take a half second and just look up, catch a snowflake on your coat, and just really look at it.
It’s simply design perfection.
