Energetic approaches can have a major impact in this time of crisis in the healthcare system by providing a sound basis for cost-effective integrative practices. Energy is the currency of all interactions in nature. To leave energetic considerations out of the equations of life and medicine is to ignore some 99% of what is happening. We are just beginning to map the energetic pathways in the body. We just need a way to communicate with these electronic circuits, to turn on the right switches and harness the body's ability to heal spontaneously. Energetic approaches work quickly and with few side-effects. This is the medicine of the future.
James Oschman, Ph.D., Biophysicist
Your cells and the computer within
Our identity is actually an environmental signal that is playing through the keyboard on the surface of our cells and engaging our genetic programs; you are not inside your cell, you are playing through your cell using the keyboard as an interface. You are an identity derived from the environment.
In my younger days, I didn't see that religion was offering me truth. I went away from spirit and ended up in science. Realizing that my identity was something from the environment playing through my cells was the greatest shock to my world because I was completely thrown from a non-spiritual reality into the requirement of a spiritual existence. My cells were like little television sets with antennas and I was the broadcast that controlled the readout of the genes. I was actually programming my cells.
I realized that if the cell died, it did not necessarily mean the loss of the broadcast - that the broadcast is out there whether the cell is here or not. All of a sudden it hit me with such profound awe. What I realized was that survival was not that important because of my eternal character was derived from some broadcast in the field. The fear of mortality disappeared. That was about twenty-five years ago and it was one of the most wonderful, liberating experiences I ever had.
Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Cellular Biologist
- Via the mind you can never know your true nature, but you can recognize who you are not.
- Within knowledge there are judgments and, consequently, guilt.
- In nature, balance and harmony happen through change.
- To resist the unknown, is to resist knowing Self.
- The unknown is only feared because it is beyond your control.
- This is freedom - being as you Are.
- Reality is That in which appearances arise.
- You never had the experience of not Being have you? Therefore, how can you be sure that you did not exist prior to the body?
- Involvement is when focus is lost, when it is split between personal fears and personal expectations. It is a misperception of limitation and the need to control.
- If this is your belief you cannot be free of the belief.
- In BodyTalk, manifest-Consciousness is termed »innate wisdom«. When rigid thinking is ready to fall away innate wisdom indicates this. Then consciousness treatment registers as a priority. When this happens, it means that the patient's body is already a clearer vehicle for the expression of Consciousness.
- The body is a phenomenal appearance within Consciousness. This means that the body object cannot be affected by other objects. When changes appear to take place in any phenomenal object, it is never because another object has acted upon it. When changes appear to take place in a body after »treating«, it is because Consciousness is animating the body in a different way.
- You may ask »so what is the point of treating?« There is absolutely no point in treating, and no point in avoiding treating. The whole dynamic is just Consciousness at play. If you treat from a place of impartiality anything can result and nothing may result, but you will not care either way. Paradoxically this describes true caring - impartiality, neutrality, and being present.
- Reiki is perhaps one of the most natural meditation practices because thoughts cut off during it, and when one self-treats, there is no effort to achieve anything.

- The mind contains absolutely no data on the truth. The mind only has data on appearances.
- Other spiritual disciplines risk giving the practitioner of them the idea that they are making progress, instead of doing something that helps them recognize their distorted perception of the ego.
- Reactionary behavior only happens when beliefs are underlain by doubt.
- What people rarely realize is that when they have what they want and experience peace, it is never because they have reached their goal. It is because desiring has stopped.
- Like all concepts truth is considered a commodity.
- Logic is no more than familiar, comfortable thoughts.
- What more could you want than a life void of beliefs about control and struggle?
- You wouldn't believe in the concept of control if you didn't also believe in lack-of-control. Lack of control is potential in that »control«.
- You cannot be something you say you own - »my body« - »my thoughts«.
- Consciousness is awareness plus the body.
- A wave appears in the ocean, but that doesn't change the nature of the ocean - it's still water. The wave has never been anything separate to the ocean - they are not-two. All that has happened is an appearance. Consciousness appears to arise and subside in awareness. This appearance does not change awareness or the absolute in any way because consciousness is not separate from it. This means that nothing has really happened.
- Peace is the closest you come to knowing love. Love is not an emotion. Love describes neutrality - the absence of judgments, censorship, desire, and worry.
- You focus on joy and sadness. This is because »you« of all the identities are a drama in your own right - you are addicted to drama.
- To experience emotions fully is rare, because the habit is to censor them. You want to feel more joy, less anger, etc. In the rare instances you experience emotions fully you experience peace.
- Memories are stored in all aspects of the body - the blood, the bones, the cells, the muscles etc.
- You don't need to rely on scientific proofs. After all, science is fallible.
- Unless you can find a reason for everything you feel totally out of control.
- When you see the synchronicity of life, you realize the insignificance of seeming reasons.
- The need for reasons denotes your unhappiness with what is.
- As long as you are worrying about finding reasons and having control you are never going to be at peace with yourself.
- All thoughts are judgments because all thoughts are descriptions.
- While the mind is still full of fears and expectations, you trash around trying to control each and every experience. You think that experiences can affect you.
- Your essential nature, or manifest appearance, is consciousness. Another word for consciousness is experiencing.
- It isn't a matter of doing nothing, but it also isn't a matter of avoiding doing anything. It may look as if certain techniques are helping dissolve rigid programming. But if they are dissolving, it's probably because they were ready to dissolve anyway and the technique simply coincided to anchor those changes.
- Caring is nothing more than unhealthy involvement, resulting in worry, anxiety, pain.
- You don't have to get beyond the programming. You have to see it for what it is - invalid information about you.
- Guilt is not natural to you, or necessary. »Thy will be done« means everything happens despite you.
- God created you sinful, so that He can save you depict a pretty sadistic God.
- You have been taught about a judgmental God who has set you tests. If you fail, He'll punish you, and if you pass the tests, He'll reward you. It seems to me this relationship between you and God can only be likened to sadomasochism.
- Judgment and forgiveness are synonymous.
- You only feel confusion, anger, and fear when there is doubt.
- All I am giving is an alternative to clinging to rigid dogma and external programming.
- Enlightenment doesn't describe the attaining of anything, but the realization that there is nothing to attain.
- You can't get rid of conditioning because it happened despite you. It can only cease despite you.
- The concept of cause and effect simply describes an impersonal synchronicity of events.
- Chakras are a concept that describes the most dynamic energetic manifestation of Consciousness in the body. They are like the primary dynamos through which Consciousness animates the body. While the mind is full of rigid prejudice, the animation of the body by Consciousness - via the chakras - is less dynamic.
- My essential nature, or Self, IS experiencing.
- In the same way a machine doesn't animate electricity the body can't animate consciousness.
- Has anything you've learned given you lasting peace?
- Thoughts and emotions aren't a problem, but if you try to reject or maintain them, that is what leads to over-reaction.
- How can I tell what is real and what is unreal? If you can see something, it's not real.
- No activity is more or less important than any other. It just looks that way while you are in efforting, controlling mode.
- There is so much guilt around food nowadays that it's not surprising that people have so many digestive disorders.
- The body is no different to a glove puppet without a hand in it. Consciousness is the hand, as it were, that animates the body. The body doesn't feel this animation.
- If God's will is always being done anyway, why should I pray »Thy will be done«?
- Instinctively the sense is there that there is a greater power than the pseudo-self.
- All desires stem from the desire to control.
- I remember my friend Tom telling me that he had phoned Wayne Liquorman. He is the author of 'Acceptance of what IS, a story about nothing'. It's a great book. Tom said, 'I asked him for a mantra. I knew I didn't really need one, but just thought it would help at the time. So Wayne paused for a moment and then said »f*?! it«'.
- What greater gift could you offer anyone than experiencing them as they are - without judging and wanting to change them.
- Do you know for sure that when you wake up after dreamless sleep that isn't your first day of life?
- An adventure is totally unpredictable and totally challenging. You have the possibility of losing everything that is familiar to you and the funny thing is, that is exactly what you want to happen.
