For thousands of years, mystics have known and advocated it and for several recent decades, so have quantum physicists: “ALL IS ONE!”
Of course, the truth, ALL IS ONE, fundamental to religions and to science, has been expressed in different words, but the core idea is the same. And this is becoming clear to an increasing number of people regardless of their religion or degree of scientific education. Still, this core idea is held as truth by a minority of people. This is evident given the degree and spread of violence around the world and the many forms of man’s inhumanity to man. Peace in the world will occur only when enough people understand that hurting anyone else is actually hurting oneself and that hurting the environment is destructive to ourselves!
The extent to which we feel connected to or separated from whatever we perceive to be necessary to make us whole, happy and fulfilled, creates the root of all our emotions which, in turn, becomes the driving force in our lives.
If the absolute truth is that ALL IS ONE, the evidence of our physical senses, supported by our mental interpretation of our human situation, points exactly to the opposite. We appear totally separated from each other, and in most instances, from what we desire, be it relationships, material possessions, or conditions.
From the moment of birth, the baby separated from its mother longs to be reconnected physically and emotionally. This is deeply embedded in all of us. It takes different forms as we grow older but it stays with us. The need to connect with others and to feel like we belong is very much a part of the human experience. For some, the most expedient and available solution might be to belong to a street gang. But for most, there are a number of connections we feel driven to make, such as with a spouse or partner, a family, a sports or social club, a church or other place of group worship or philosophy, a professional association, or organizations celebrating ethnic or national identity. All of these are attempts to feel connected. That feeling is key to a sense of self-actualization, contentment, and well-being.
The sense of separation is, of course, the opposite. It prevents personal fulfillment. It permeates all our endeavors and human relationships. And, as we saw in our earlier Wei Chi blogs and newsletters, emotionally-nourishing human relationships are one of the few natural ways we have to improve Wei Chi, our energetic immune system. At the same time, we learned that the “5 devils” that attack Wei Chi are the negative emotions associated with the 5 elements of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). And, here again, we are invited to emotionally mature, and gain greater mastery over our emotions. We must avoid negativity and foster positive emotions. It is incumbent on each of us to gain an awareness of our–what triggers them and what controls them. That is how we develop our E.Q.–our emotional quotient, commonly known as emotional intelligence.
This sense of separation is pervasive. Mystics are among the few who experience the ultimate connection–communion with their Source, whatever that might mean to each one of them. For Jesus of Nazareth, it is what caused him to say, “I and my father are one.”
Quantum physicists and others who embrace their conclusion experience intellectual communion and the satisfaction of embracing fundamental truth. Their vision, not unlike TCM’s vision, is that each one of us is made of energy and each with our own energy field that evolves in an infinite energetic substance (or field) that we call space.
A singularity of energy fields is that they can exist as a multitude within any given space. But as energy is polarized in positive and negative phases, there is an interplay between opposite energies while there is harmony with same polarity. More positive energy is elevating. More negative energy is abasing. This is our choice to make.
Now, back to wellness. We learn that we can’t ignore our emotions. They give us a clues on as to how to increase our sense of well-being, by increasing what adds to it and by eliminating what makes us feel unhappy, sorry for ourselves, fearful, or angry.
Once we have gained a fuller awareness of our emotions as a sort of guidance system, there are ways to mitigate the negative and enhance the positive.
PHYTO5 has developed one such exciting method with a new generation of wellness spa treatments.
This will be the subject of our soon to be published article describing the forthcoming “Beauty of Emotions” treatment protocol by PHYTO5. This unparalleled treatment protocol will introduce revolutionary and with highly energetic and balancing skincare products.
