I’m thinking…

…about physics ~ since quantum mechanics is the scientific basis of Jin Shin Jyutsu, I decided to try to wrap my brain around that.

Knowing little or nothing, I first read “The Holographic Universe” by Michael Talbot. That, though simplified for the layperson, required a few readings. I have just begun to read the second suggested book, “The Dancing Wu Li Masters” by Gary Zukav. This is an overview of the New Physics in a basic, easy to understand format. I highly recommend that you, dear readers, obtain these books and enjoy the adventurous journey into awareness and understanding.

I am reading this book with a highlighter in my hand. With full credit to Mr. Zukav, I am going to now quote a couple of his statements:

I thought that physics would be impossible for me to comprehend at my rather advanced age. What do physicists do anyway? “What physicists do, however, is actually quite simple. They wonder what the universe is really made of, how it works, what we are doing in it, and where it is going, if it is going anyplace at all.” “The fact is that physics is not mathematics. Physics, in essence, is simple wonder at the way things are and a divine (some call it compulsive) interest in how that is so. Mathematics is the tool of physics. Stripped of mathematics, physics becomes pure enchantment.”

The author attended a conference where he met Al Chung-liang Huang, a T’ai Chi Master who was leading a workshop. The author reports, “When I studied physics in Taiwan,” said Huang, “we called it Wu Li (pronounced ‘Woo Lee’). It means ‘Patterns of Organic Energy.'” “Wu Li” is the Chinese phrase for physics. It also means “nonsense”, “my way”, “I clutch my ideas”, and “enlightenment”. I posted this explanation for “Dancing Masters” on 9/12/14 in my blog category, “Thoughts”. You an check the archives, if you like.

Telling us that mathematics is the most concise expression of physics, M. Zukav points out that both mathematics and English are languages. All a language can do is talk about an experience. Wu Li Masters know that a description of an experience is not the experience. It is only talk about it. When I read the book, the experience is coming from me, not the book. “Quantum mechanics, for example, shows us that we are not as separate from the rest of the world as we once thought. Particle physics shows us that the “rest of the world” does not sit idly “out there”. It is a sparkling realm of continual creation, transformation, and annihilation. The ideas of the new physics, when wholly grasped, can produce extraordinary experiences. The study of relativity theory, for example, can produce the remarkable experience that space and time are only mental constructions!” “This is the message of the Wu Li Masters: not to confuse the type of dance that they are doing with the fact that they are dancing.”

Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy is like that; it is not the application of technique, but rather the demonstration of art. As we find in Text 1 “…simply Being the channel through which flow infinite aesthetic powers of the Creator.” “Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy lectures and demonstrations offer a way of Being to help MYSELF, help others and to KNOW Cosmic Oneness.”

I invite you to wonder with me and begin to KNOW.

Gassho, I acknowledge that we are one

Namaste, the god in me bows to the god in you

Blessings, may peace fill your lives

    I like that phrase : “. . . for a rather advanced age”.
    Thank you for the suggested readings- The Holographic Universe and The Dancing Wu Li Masters.
