And thank YOU, Masaru Emoto!


The above image, according to Masaru Emoto, images-18who died peacefully at his home with his wife by his side only one day ago, is the frozen, crystallized version of the final word he is reported to have uttered, “Narigato” — “Thank you.”

Emoto was the person who discovered that water responds to human consciousness and language. The visual beauty and harmony in “Thank you,” for example, is echoed in another word, “Love,” and deeply contrasts with the discordant, chaotic signature of words such as “I hate you.”


This afternoon I was reading an article, by James Parker, about another beautiful soul who died recently, Robin Williams, in the November 2014 issue of The Atlantic, the first two sentences of which were so breathtakingly beautiful that I read them twice, savoring each word. I’m intensely grateful to be able to share this passage with you here:

“Death, if we are loved at all in this world, is a centrifuge: at the moment of cessation it throws our essence outward, and further outward, scattering us abroad with supernatural force and largesse. And in the hearts that receive these essential shards or sparks we are, for a short time, revealed — who we really were, what we really meant.”

In the case of Masaru Emoto, I have a feeling that those shards are lodged permanently within our hearts, opening them to each other and to the natural world that cries out its longing for our communion.

For a beautiful tribute to this pioneer in understanding the universal resonance of our inner states, feelings, and voices, see this:

Masaru Emoto: A Message of Love


He used to say, “Life is LOVE which is a gift from God and parents, and DEATH is gratitude for going to a new dimension.” So now he is in another dimension and continues to look over us warmly with love and gratitude.

  1. An effective revolution begins this way – back to the basics, like the hippies have been talking about since the 60’s. We knew then what was most important: living with each other and the land in peace and love. It’s simple, and it’s the most important revolution there is – one that starts this way. Each one of us is like Ann’s pods in Green Acres. We edge out and the groundswell will be our job. We have to try. – As Joan Baez said in Saccho and Vinzeti (spelled wrong): “the revolution goes from person to person and heart to heart.” Thank you all, everyone everywhere, for your contributions of peace and love to our Earth Community. Let us continue our sacred vision of the belief that we are all brothers and sisters on one sacred planet, intending to live the revolution of peace, love, nonviolence, and living this way with each other and the land. I wish this for us all. Let us bless one another with this awareness. Thank you for a very inspiring post.

    FYI: Correct word in Japanese is “ARIGATO”…The correct word & spelling was all over the place so I don’t know where this came from. Yes, indeed he was a wonderful masterful man. His life and journey into death mirrors that.

    His wife reported that his “Arigato” was for all humanity whom he felt was his honor to serve. Truly a Master of this plane and transcended ego.

    I’m not telling u what to do, but please read all of this one. To me, it is true and what life is about. For you and me, it begs the question: how do we do it better? Life is of no use if it is not there.
