Today, March 22, 2009 is the the 17th annual World Water Day. This day is intended to bring attention to the world's water crisis and facilitate a dialogue on transboundary water.
When we step into the simple truth that the sanctity of our water is a unifying basic need, then perhaps we may all live with more peace, respect, and harmony.
By being grateful advocates for clean water sources, we can connect our aquatic intentions and raise standards to ensure sustainability for all resolutions of our ecosystems.
My aunt and I had a conversation yesterday about her generation and the mentality about 20 years ago, when everyone just threw trash out the window, like they didn't know any better. It seems like in today's modern life, there is still so much that is taken for granted; a lot of our societal short cuts are just assumed to be the only way we do things.
I am glad most folks have come to a point where they dispose of trash properly, but our efforts for recycling and composting still have a long way to go! All of the products we use have a lot of evolving to do, as the waste that is accumulating is putting a lot of chemicals back into the earth that we will eventually be drinking back up if we're not careful.
The way that we dispose of our petrochemical and pharmaceutical waste today is atrocious. There are some regulations, but there's really no efficient system. I think it's really time to stop contaminating our water sources with these compounds that are incredibly difficult to clean out of the water. Raising awareness about how to use water as medicine first instead of pharmaceuticals is a crucial step in this paradigm. In the meantime, people should not be flushing medication, and corporations should be demonstrating their sustainable and ecologically responsible practices with transparency. It's our right as consumers to understand the whole process of what we're getting and what the true expense is. For years, we've been finding pharmaceuticals in tap water, and yet we know that bottled water and plastic have their own slate of issues, and as a society we seem to be just now reconsidering the vast implications of the importance of water in our biological paradigm...The question we should be asking ourselves is:
What's the most ecologically responsible way to consume enough high quality water on a regular basis?
I think it's time to take tap water back into our own hands.
Compared to the rest of the world, American tap water is relatively good. But municipal systems distribute the same kind of water for toilets and showers and drinking - if it were all processed to really be ideal quality drinking water, it would be far too expensive. Plus, additives like lye that neutralize the pH make the water molecules bunch into larger clusters, and the unstructured water simply is not healthy for our bodies. What was water like before the earth was polluted? What's different about the water in glacial springs, or in the Himalayan mountains that makes the people who live there so healthy?
The water in these naturally vibrant places was highly structured, alkaline, micro-clustered water. ALL of the body's systems are able to function on a more efficient level with this simply resonant anti-oxidant. The spin of the electrolyzed water is pure power for the hydro electric energy that your body uses to function.
From my experience, I would venture to say that Enagic's high-grade filters and quality ionizers are the most effective way to transform any average aqua source into Kangen water for health and healing.
Kangen means return to origin, and reflects water that has returned to its natural state.
