So today is World Water Day . The Japanese researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto, chief of the Hado institute in Tokyo was in Burlington, Vermont on May 13th 2006 for the second annual "Wake the Lake" Waterfest. He is the author of many books concerning the phenomenon of ' Hado'. The two ideograms comprising this expression Hado (pronounced hadou to rhyme with shadow) literally mean "wave" and "move". The following definition is how Dr. Emoto describes the phenomenon, which led him to a series of discoveries pertaining to the nature of water.
Hado: The intrinsic vibrational pattern at the atomic level in all matter. The smallest unit of energy. Its basis is the energy of human consciousness. What has put Dr. Emoto at the forefront of the Hado phenomenon is his proof that thoughts and feelings affect physical reality. By producing different Hado through written and spoken words, as well as music, and literally, presenting it to the same water samples, the water appears to "change its expression".
So we (Seventh Generation) donated time and money to the Wake the Lake day in Burlington. We did it because Emoto is on the cusp of a leap from an aging epistemology to one that…well, challenges our present beliefs. (I got a few laughs from local professors when I told them about Emoto.) Oh by the way it was Dr. Emoto featured in the recent movie What the Bleep do we know?
Dr. Emoto's was supposed to be giving a water blessing ceremony in Israel today and it has been postponed due to the state of emergency in Israel. Check out the movie – thanks Robert, thanks Bec, thanks Ayano Furuya, thanks Dr. Emoto…
