Grand Unification Begins

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Today is the official publication date for Dr. and Master Sha with co-author Dr. RulinSoul Min Body Science System Xiu for “Soul Mind Body Science System: Grand Unification Theory and Practice for Healing, Rejuvenation, Longevity, and Immortality”. Despite the somewhat intimidating title this is not just a book for scientists and geniuses. It took the genius of these two authors to create this fascinating explanation of the universal principles which govern all life, but the book is written for lay readers and is a wonderful demonstration of how spiritual principles and scientific principles mirror each other.

Noted systems theorist and humanitarian Dr. Ervin Laszlo writes in the Foreword, “We should be grateful to Dr. and Master Sha for rediscovering soul in theory and applying it in practice, and to Dr. Xiu for clarifying the contribution this revelation will make to our health and well-being.” Unlike most scientific based theories this book provides immediate practices that can be used to improve your life today. Basing his theory on the most ancient Chinese teachings from the five thousand year-old ancient wisdom tradition emanating from studies of the Tao, Dr. Sha has uncovered a formula that explains all life, and which Dr. Xiu has been able to confirm as representative of the Grand Unification Theory that has been the unobtainable goal of scientists from the great Albert Einstein to the present day. I am not going to give away this formula in this blog, but it is a single sentence as elegant and concise as Einstein’s E=mc2 formula of relativity. Dr. Laszlo confirms the utility of this equation and my own scientific investigations at Yale and Harvard reveal the fundamental truth of this momentous discovery.

I believe that Dr. Sha and Dr. Xiu are far ahead of mainstream scientists and that it may take several decades before the true power and utility of this new formula are fully realized, but that is no reason for the general reader to hesitate to gain this knowledge. Whether the theory is controversial or not, the healing practices emanating from this new equation have already been verified. Buy this book. Read this book. Enjoy the insights you will gain. You may learn that the fundamental truth to your own being and purpose are contained within this Grand Unification Theory. It truly unites our understanding of how each and every one of us, and each and every planet and star, is part of a unified field, and how this is the basis of all life and our collective future as a species.

WHAT IS REAL?

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Most of us pause from time to time to ask ourselves WHAT IS REAL?

dr and Master Sha Miracle soul healer book cover

I sometimes pinch myself when I awake just to confirm that I am really here in a human body. I have been with this body for more than sixty years and it hardly seems real that I have been here this long and that everything is still working as well as when I was just a teenager. I also wonder about the information I receive in newspapers and on television. Can it really be true in the 21 century that ISIS is beheading people in what they feel is justifiable retaliation against American airstrikes against them? Can it really be true that more than a billion people on our planet go to bed hungry or not knowing where their next meal will come from while more than one thousand individuals are mega billionaires with more wealth than they could spend in a million lifetimes?

I love sports as much as anyone but is it really true that the world spends more time, energy and money attending, promoting, marketing and discussing sports events in a day than all the time, energy and money devoted to the arts in a year? Can it really be true that millions of people follow the activities of major celebrities ranging from Lady Gaga to Honey Booboo while too many individuals feel so alone, isolated and unimportant that they seek to appease their suffering with random acts of violence directed at the anonymous society that they feel has betrayed them?

And then there is the realm of faith and healing. Is it really true that faith healing can work? Is it true that healers such as Dr. and Master Sha can perform miracles and have for hundreds of thousands of people? We are living in such a strange world and that makes us question our own existence and the evidence of actual miracles. Perhaps more to the point in this day and age of technological miracles: What constitutes a true miracle? What is believable and what is not?

In this weekly blog I will be reporting on events that I have observed with my own eyes. Some of these events have forced me to redefine my own sense of what is real and what is not. I am fascinated by not just major miracles but small everyday miracles as well. In my research for writing Dr. and Master Sha: Miracle Soul Healer I have explored events which would not have seemed real to me even a year ago. Dr. Sha is presenting examples of how his calligraphy can heal. This seems unreal to me but I question my own skepticism after personally reviewing dozens of examples of true healing which have occurred many of which (several thousand at last report) have been posted on www.drsha.com.

In working with Dr. Sha I have been introduced to Dr. Rulin Xiu, a string theorist who has been working on unified field theory off and on for the past twenty years. I am learning from Dr. Rulin that nothing we take for granted is truly real. Our bodies are actually mostly non-bodies containing 90 percent space. Dr. Rulin has explained that our perception of solid matter, even objects of iron and steel is actually an illusion. These and other themes will be the primary focus of this blog and perhaps with each blog entry we will be better able to determine what is actually real.

And to learn more about what Dr and Master Sha is up to now I encourage everyone to attend the international peace day celebration with Dr and Master Sha on September 21st.  More details here: https://lovepeaceharmonymovement.drsha.com/peace-day.Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 4.59.11 AMPeaceDay_MSha_851x315

TO YOUR HEALTH

Friday, January 31st, 2014

It is not an accident that in most cultures the primary toasts made at parties and during celebrations are “to your imageshealth”, “salud,” “to life,” or the equivalent. Everyone cares about being healthy and living a long and illness free life.

As a graduate student in cultural anthropology at Harvard University in the 1970s, I had the pleasure of studying with Medical Anthropologist Arthur Kleinman who was the world’s leading authority on cross-cultural indicators of successful therapies in hundreds of cultures covering myriad techniques from traditional western medicine to shamanistic practices. The extraordinary finding was that the most important factor in successful therapeutic outcomes had nothing to do with the type of practice or technique. The single most important factor was the belief the patient had in the practitioner.

What this means in terms of analyzing the “placebo effect” and understanding the true nature of both western and alternative healing is a topic that I intend to explore in a full length book that I will be co- authoring with noted medical doctor and alternative healer Dr. and Master Sha, whose Soul Healing Miracles has already sold several hundreds of thousands of copies.

As successful As Dr. Sha has been in promoting his books, which emphasize his specific techniques for teaching people to perform their own soul healing miracles, Dr. Sha has not focused on the science behind his amazing results. I have seen Dr. Sha perform medical miracles, and I do not doubt the efficacy of his techniques.  The majority of people, however, are tied to traditional western medical beliefs and practices. Many are reluctant to explore the types of interventions that Dr. Sha and other non-traditional practitioners such as Dr. Uwe Albrecht have demonstrated countless times. My goal in this new book will be to explain in everyday language what traditional scientists and medical doctors often feel is nothing more than the placebo effect. I do not believe that the placebo effect is the reason for these miracle cures and I also believe that what we often call the placebo effect is, in fact, calling on what at this time have been unmeasured but energetically real influences on healing.

Energetically, the entire universe is connected. Each of us is influenced by the energy which surrounds us. This includes not only germs, viruses and other identifiable organic entities but also non-organic and perhaps non-physical entities as well. My early research with both Dr. Sha and Dr. Albrecht indicates that there is much more to health than just controlling the production of antibodies in our glandular systems or the pulsations of our brain and nerve systems.

I am not trained in medical sciences, and although my father was a chemist, I did not ever study chemistry in college. But I do have some good background in biology and physics, both of which help me analyze some of the medical mysteries I am exploring. My goal is to write a book that anyone with a high school diploma can understand that will help people realize that ultimately they have much more control over their health than they realize.

It is not just that Obamacare is a disaster and that health costs have escalated beyond reason. We are all aging. We are all exposed to increasingly dangerous flus and illnesses. We all need to be better informed about the true nature of healing. To your health.

IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH

Friday, January 17th, 2014

I have the pleasure of working with Bill Gladstone, and today I received the following blog copy from him:images

We know that marriages are supposed to be commitments that are not just for the good times. We know that the postal service is supposed to continue rain or snow. But we often fail to realize that we are committed to our own personal journeys  in both sickness and in health. It is no fun being sick. I find it impossible to write or have in depth conversations when I am  ill. I just have the flu and it will pass but my level of misery is real.

So all of you out there, if you are well, celebrate the joy of life. If you have the flu like me, hang in there. Tomorrow will be another day and the joy of healthy balanced life will return. I still fail to comprehend why our biological systems are so frail. Perhaps in the future we will find a way so that no one ever needs to be sick.

Of course, I immediately wrote back that he should get Tamiflu, stay in bed, drink fluids, and that if he wanted, I would bring him chicken soup – all the requisite advice and offers we give to friends who fall prey to the flu.  What we don’t do often enough is to admonish our friends and loved ones, as well as ourselves, to avoid taking being healthy for granted; to stay at least as aware of our health as we are of celebrity gossip and other nonsense.

A few months ago, Labor Day to be exact, I returned from a visit to upstate NY coughing and sneezing – mostly coughing.  Writing it off to exposure to unfamiliar flora and fauna, I told myself I was just experiencing NY allergies.  Weeks went by, the cough grew worse, in fact debilitating, and I couldn’t seem to stay awake.  Finally, in late October I was diagnosed with pneumonia.

A week off, and I came back to work, determined to catch up, putting in a seventy hour week.  And I was actually surprised when at the end of that week my fever spiked yet again and my cough returned.  Hadn’t I been on antibiotics and taken them religiously.

So, what’s the point of all this?

We have developed a quick-fix, give-me-a-pill-for-it mentality, and with that we no longer allow our bodies the necessary time to heal.  When I was a child, the doctor still came to your house.  If you were sick, he gave you cough medicine, aspirin, and sometimes an antibiotic. But what the doctor would really insist on was rest and fluids – for at least several days – emphasizing that the body needs time to heal itself.

These days, when we or our kids are sick we take our antibiotics and tell ourselves that twenty-four hours later we can and should get back to school or work.  Instead of allowing for the natural healing process to ensue, we depend on pills.  And that has expanded to depending on pills to enhance our moods, immediately cure our headaches, kick-start weight loss, and to tend to a myriad of other ailments we could otherwise attend to more naturally.

Modern medicine has its place.  It works wonders. But when push comes to shove, it is the natural ability of the body to heal itself that we must honor.

So today I am reiterating to Bill the advice he gave me in October and November. Get lots of rest.  Hydrate.  Don’t push yourself back to work too soon.  Give yourself time to truly heal.  And for those of you out there, keep this in mind the next time the flu or a cold hits you, too.  I know I will.

 

 

Healing and Giving

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Surrounded by family and friends, and with some time for reflection on all we have to be grateful for, Thanksgiving imagesweekend was a time for healing and giving.

There is a direct link between healing and giving thanks. In studying Soul Healing Miracles by Dr. and Master Sha, we learn that the first step towards any healing is giving thanks to the creator and all beings who share our higher soul purpose. During Thanksgiving we are able to stop our normal flow of activities and focus on resting or undertaking leisure activities that can nurture what ails us or requires attention. We do not need to limit this attention to physical issues only. Often the holidays can be a time to heal emotional wounds and, as I am learning not just from Dr. and Master Sha but also from my other wonderful healing client, Uwe Albrecht, M.D., emotional issues are often at the heart of physical maladies.

THRIVE BALANCE

Friday, October 18th, 2013

My friend and speaker’s bureau director Linda Villasenor suggested that I re title my corporate talks Thrive Balance. I like2649170201_9e5f46ca78_z to focus my speeches on the importance of balance in all aspects of life. Lately I have felt compelled to address the over reaction of books like Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In which suggests that women need to focus on collective action within corporations to protect women’s interest. This may be necessary in some instances, but overall corporations need to be focusing on the health of the entire corporation including females. Corporations need to be finding new levels of balancing what we often refer to as feminine energy—qualities such as sharing, caring, nurturing, respecting the role of intuition—with what is often referred to as masculine energy—aggressiveness, sharp focus, using power  when reasoning  is too slow, and  generally relying on strength rather than reconciliation and compromise.  It is quite possible that using power tactics to protect women will backfire and make corporations less feminine and even more unbalanced than they already are.

I was once presented with a book entitled  Health is a Question of Balance by  a noted  La Jolla-based medical doctor, and the ongoing work of systems theorist Dr. Ervin Laszlo continues to  document the importance of balance and the ability to return to balance in all systems. Basically a system that is unable to return to a steady state—a state of balance—will eventually decay, self-destruct, or evolve to  a different type of system in which balance is achievable. The inability to achieve balance and maintain balance leads to the destruction of all systems. For us as individuals it leads to death. (more…)

HEALTH: A QUESTION OF BALANCE

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Good health is perhaps the single most important component for a happy life. With the cost of health insurance Vitacontinuing to rise and the uncertainty of the effectiveness or fairness of the Obamacare legislation, Americans are more concerned with health issues than ever before. The costs for hospital stays are astronomical and ninety percent of all health dollars are spent on medical interventions which prolong at most the last six months of life of those who receive primary hospitalization for life-threatening illnesses.

Something has gone wrong, seriously wrong with health care in America.  All Americans and all human beings should have access to basic medical care and treatment. The majority of medical care, if provided at early stages of diseases, can be cost effective and focus on preventative rather than late-stage emergency measures. Part of the problem is that our health care system functions as a profit focused business. This is true for all components of the system from individual doctors to the drug companies to hospital management companies and insurance companies. As a profit-focused business, certain health practices are encouraged whether or not they are the best ways of dealing with patients. A recent Sixty Minutes television program revealed that in many hospitals emergency room doctors were given quotas of the percentage of patients who, regardless of actual need, had to be admitted to the hospital to keep the hospital at maximum profitability. This is wrong on so many levels and ultimately unnecessary, but given our present economic system, perhaps impossible to stop or even control. (more…)

Work and Play

Friday, June 21st, 2013

In 1979 I wrote a book called Test Your Own Mental Health. In that book, I adopted a model created by a Harvard work and playUniversity professor and NASA psychologist that was a legitimate measure of mental health. The basic norm was the norm of adaptability. If you were adaptable to your environment you would survive.  And from a scientific perspective that was a good and useful measure for sound health. I especially liked that the measure of adaptability was culture free. Instead of stating that specific traits were signs of mental health and others were not, the measure was for traits that allowed adaptability to whatever culture and circumstances an individual was born into.

For our American culture the ability to enjoy both work and play seems a clear measure of adaptability. No one enjoys someone who only knows work and never makes time for leisure, family, culture, art, and the nobler pleasures of human existence. Equally worrisome are people who have no meaningful work. Work itself, if defined as the exchange of labor for money, may in and of itself not be necessary for a healthy life.  But if we define work as meaningful effort that helps others, then it seems quite clear that without work we are missing  a fundamental element in our pursuit of healthy living.

Older Americans are often relegated to retirement when they still have decades of energy and wisdom they could dedicate to work. Increasingly people with skills and energy (and who are actually in their prime work years) are becoming obsolete as industries change.  This forces valuable people to end their careers prematurely. The ability to adapt in this situation (either to stay working or to accept retirement) is crucial for both their mental and physical survival. (more…)
