I’m thinking about counting to twelve…


by Pablo Neruda

Now we will count to twelve

and we will all keep still.

For once on the face of the earth,

let’s not speak in any language;

let’s stop for one second,

and not move our arms so much.

It would be an exotic moment

without rush, without engines;

we would all be together

in a sudden strangeness.

Fisherman in the cold sea

would not harm whales

and the man gathering salt

would look at his hurt hands.

Those who prepare green wars,

wars with gas, wars with fire,

victories with no survivors,

would put on clean clothes

and walk about with their brothers

in the shade, doing nothing.

What I want should not be confused

with total inactivity.

Life is what it is about;

I want no truck with death.

If we were not so single-minded

about keeping our lives moving,

and for once could do nothing,

perhaps a huge silence

might interrupt this sadness

of never understanding ourselves

and of threatening ourselves with death.

Perhaps the earth can teach us

as when everything seems dead

and later proves to be alive.

Now I’ll count up to twelve

and you keep quiet and I will go.


Every single poem in Extravagaria is rewarding beyond words, beyond time. Complement it with Neruda’s beautiful metaphor of the hand through the fence and the story of his extraordinary life adapted in an illustrated love letter to language, then revisit Paul Goodman on the nine types of silence and the lovely The Quiet Book.

I’m thinking about mind control…


“Concentration is the ability to think about absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary.”
— Ray Knight

“Eventually, meditation will make our mind calm, clear, and as concentrated as a laser which we can focus at will. This capacity of one-pointed attention is the essence of genius. When we have this mastery over attention in everything we do, we have a genius for life itself: unshakable security, clear judgment, and deep personal relationships.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“The successful man is the average man, focused.”

I’m thinking about reality…


“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
— Henri Bergson

Our entire universe is energy — vibrating waves of pure potential. The electromagnetic vibrations of our consciousness interact with the energetic potential that exists everywhere as the life force to ‘collapse’ the waves and create matter. So the patterns of our minds create the form of our world.

By simply observing a form, we influence it. We in turn are influenced by others. This challenges us to be more aware of the quality of our being and the vibrations we transmit.

“There is no reality in the absence of observation.”
— The Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

Text 2, Gall Bladder and Liver Function Energy

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2. Issue Number 48, Spring 2005 contains an article by Nathalie Max that has been very helpful to me – so I’ll share the information (with thanks to David for giving me permission) and at the same time remind my wonderful readers that you can obtain a copy of this issue, and all past issues, from the Scottsdale office; There is other information in this issue that would benefit any student of  Jin Shin Jyutsu.

“The Gall Bladder Function Energy and the Liver Function Energy, Third Depth, 8, as above, so below; as below, so above”

“The number 12 and 20 “Safety” Energy Locks are the Keys to the “Story” of Gall Bladder Function Energy and the numbers 4 and 22 “Safety” Energy Locks are the Keys to the “Story” of Liver Function Energy.

The Number 12 “Safety” Energy Lock came into universe meaning submission of personal consciousness to the direction of Universal Mind, to receive Divine guidance.

The Number 20 “Safety” Energy Lock means ever-lasting, eternity. This number 20 helps our blending with Universal Consciousness, enhances the KNOWING and helps us REMEMBER this wisdom, which is engulfed in the core of our being, in the core of our heart – to SEE.

The Number 4 “Safety” Energy Lock is the end of the inhalation and the beginning of exhalation; exhalation helps us to bring the spirit into matter. 4 brings the sight of the invisible to the visible, a transition – VISION.

The Number 22 “Safety” Energy Lock helps us to set free our perceptions in unlimited Dimensions.

8 is the Number of the 3rd Depth, our source of energy and our Source of Blood – cosmic balance number, symbol of multiple and infinite, 8 million Kami*, a divine and sacred number. Source of all sources is the 8th Depth.

The Gall Bladder Function Energy and the Liver Function Energy open our being to…


Creator (“Life Breath of the Gods” or “Spirit of God”)

The only true journey, the only bath of rejuvenation, would be not to seek out new landscapes but to have new eyes, to see the universe through the eyes of another, of a hundred others, to see the hundred universes that each of them sees, that each of them is…

by Marcel Proust

If the Gall Bladder Function Energy and the Liver Function energy are out of harmony, they interfere with the work of Trinity Energy thus causing “ANGER” to occur, creating a lot of frustrations rather than…



Mary says: The 3rd Depth is nearest to the dot, the 8th Depth, then if you wish to know the Creator, study the 3rd Depth.”

*The Kojiki tells us about the “creation” of Japan (Japanese cosmogony, mythology), and we can see that the first philosophy for the Japanese people is Shinto, the Kami Way. “Shinto is composed with two ideographs: Shin, which is equated with the term Kami, and Do or To which is equated with the term michi meaning way.” – Shinto, the Kami Way (publisher Charles E. Tuttle Company) – by Dr. Soko Ono.

Thank you, Nathalie.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Text 2, Diaphragm and Umbilicus Function Energy, Part 3

We continue our review of the article by Waltraud Riegger-Krause from issue Number 47, Winter 2005: Diaphragm and Umbilicus Function Energy. You can obtain this issue from the Scottsdale office; 

“Diaphragm Flow becomes Umbilicus Flow at the ring finger. This one flows down the arm into the face. As it flows down, it supports the ascending Energy and helps everything that is stuck below the waist. Mary says, “All organs of the body are guarded by the Umbilicus Flow.”

Through the astrological sign of Capricorn, Earth Element, which is related to Umbilicus Function energy, we are able to manifest in our life what we receive from 6th Depth – Breath of Life. In the darkness of the night (main time of Umbilicus Flow is from 10 p.m. to midnight), while we sleep, we connect to the spheres, where only our soul can reach. It is like an invisible umbilical cord, our connection to the 7th Depth Light. This brings deep regeneration to Body, Mind and Spirit and nourishes all the other organ flows. In its flow route Umbilicus connects the heart with the head, feeling and thinking. It controls respiration, digestion and the reproductive and urogenital system. It works as a fountain of youth and helps all critical labels.

Umbilicus Flow also relates to the umbilical cord which connects the mother and baby to bring nourishment and energy to the fetus. It is an important energy for the development of the baby in the womb, for the harmonious development of the vertebrae and spine. Also anything that happens during pregnancy and during birth can be harmonized through the Umbilicus Flow – all labels that babies bring into life. Through its connection to the ear it helps harmonize all ear projects, and especially in children with ear infections. An Umbilicus Flow can help grown-up kids and parents to be able to let go of each other, so the children can find their own life path. It supports people who are introverts and loners to show their unique beauty to the world.

Umbilicus Energy is like the thermostat of the body. It regulates body temperature, excessive perspiring – also caused through hormonal changes – hot flashes. We can use the flow for discomfort in the joints, for rheumatism and arthritis. The key Safety Energy Lock is number 13. It is also the 13 Flow, Pg. 28, Text 1, that combines the Umbilicus Flow with the other two “Finger Flows” – Large Intestine and Small Intestine – with the Main Central, the Trinity Flow of the 6th Depth. 6th Depth is the divine presence in honorific centre of the cosmos.”

Thank you, Waltraud.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

I’m thinking about what I might be…


“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
— Lao Tzu

How do you label yourself? How do you label others?

Be aware that any label is limiting. Labels stick us in a box where there’s no room to move. Today, experience how it feels to let go of the labels to rest in ‘I am.’ Feel the freedom, the spaciousness, the infinite potential of simply being.

“As long as I am this or that, I am not all things.”
— Meister Eckhart

“Your only limitations are those you set up in your mind, or permit others to set up for you.”
— Og Mandino

Text 2, Diaphragm and Umbilicus Function Energy, Part 2

We continue our review of the article by Waltraud Riegger-Krause from issue Number 47, Winter 2005: Diaphragm and Umbilicus Function Energy. You can obtain this issue from the Scottsdale office; 

“The Diaphragm Function Energy is related to the astrological sign of Sagittarius which is also a fire sign. So here we have a flow with the quality of a fire sign within the 6th Depth, which is also related to the element fire. In one of the classes with Mary, I made a note next to the astrological signs that are related to the organ flows. The fire signs represent the “pure flame of spirit”. I see the Diaphragm Flow as the one that brings the spiritual fire of the 7th Depth into our hearts. By doing this it enables us to see the truth in life, to see the spark of the 7th Depth in every human being, to bring idealism into ones life. Sagittarius says, “I perceive”. “I come out of the 6th Depth and perceive the truth.” In this connection to the heart, Diaphragm Energy is flowing into the heart, protects the heart and is the governor of the “Pulse of Life”.

As a chest flow it brings vital life to our Being and vitality to the blood flowing through the vessels. On the physical level it prevents and helps heart attack, angina pectoris, shortness of breath and depression. It regulates the blood composition. That means also the cholesterol and sugar level in the blood. The flow itself is ascending from the chest into the middle finger and the ring finger, but in its function Diaphragm Flow helps all the descending Energy Flows and everything that is stuck above the waist. On the emotional level Diaphragm Function Energy helps people that are too extroverted, people who always want to be star of the party and people who can not be alone. It harmonizes compulsive talking and involuntary laughter.

The Diaphragm Flow gives energy to people who work night shifts and everything that happens during sleep like nightmares or insomnia. In the darkness of the night it brings in the light of the fire element. The key Safety Energy Lock is number 15, joy and laughter, which is the renewing intelligence.

The Umbilicus Flow gives energy to people who work during daytime. And when there is a shift between daytime working and night time working, we can do both flows, also when we fly long distances, and day becomes night or vice versa.”
