As the great Hindu sage Sri Ramakrishna has said, "There can be as many spiritual paths as there are spiritual aspirants, and as many Gods as there are devotees."

|Hidden Messages in Water Wall Calendar: The Hidden Messages in Water calendar presents the revolutionary work of renowned scientist Masaru Emoto, who discovered that molecules of water are affected by our thoughts, words and feelings. Using high-speed photography, Dr. Emoto shows that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete patterns with dull colors. |
The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the world around us. Since humans and the earth are composed mostly of water, Emoto�s message is one of personal health, global environmental renewal, and a practical plan for peace that starts with each one of us.
