Energy Medicine

A few weeks ago I wrote about my interest in research being conducted by the Noetic Science Institute ( on energy healing. I often talk about the spiritual-science movement and my optimistic view of how this movement will change not only the way we look at health, but our understanding of human potential and the next stage of human evolution.

The Noetic Science Institute(NSI) is focused on research that brings modern scientific research together with ancient wisdom, to create - or recreate - a new paradigm for wellness options. One of the books on the NSI energy healing reading list is Donna Eden’s fascinating work “Energy Medicine”. Eden’s book is a guide that gives direction on ways to use the body’s energy to boost your vitality and stamina, strengthen your immune system, relieve pain and sharpen your memory and mind.

When I studied energy training in the mountains of South Korea, I learned an energy stress management treatment system called chunsoo (chun meaning heavenly and soo meaning hands) that allowed a master to reduce stress in a person by using sound vibration and touch. Chunsoo is part of an ancient Korean stress management system I call Kido (Ki meaning energy and Do meaning the way): the way of energy. We now know humans are walking energy fields and can address health by balancing their internal and external fields.

Science has identified 7 major energy centers in the body (which is ancient knowledge). Each one relates to another part of our physical-emotional-spiritual self. These energy centers are called chakras. Another part of the body’s internal energy system are energy pathways which we call meridians. The meridians connect the 360 energy channels running from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet.

The external human energy field is called the Aura. The Aura can be seen, and it’s different colors. Organizations such as First Star, an Aura photo company, have developed cameras that allow them to provide information on a person’s state of being through pictures of the Aura colors surrounding the body. Red relates to anger, orange to sensuality, yellow mental alertness, green healing, blue sadness, purple wisdom, brown grounding and black unresolved karma. While aura colors can contain over a million color variations, it is a mistake to use a cut and dried color code to diagnose a person’s true state. The above color codes can be used to give basic interpretations.

For the past few weeks I’ve been giving free Ki energy treatments at the Harlem State Office building on Wednesdays, from 12 noon to 3pm, as part of a project to see how people respond to this ancient art. If you would like to learn more about Ki Energy treatments and training visit, send me an email at or call my office at 646 329-6727. The last Ki energy stress management session at the State Office building for 2009 is on December 30th. Visit my blog at if you’re interested in this subject.

Seeing With Our Hearts

We’re now in a season that speaks to the power of giving and gratitude. But are we seeing with our minds, or with our hearts? When we see with our minds only, we can overlook the true power of giving and gratitude. Wu Wei, world-renowned author and interpreter of ancient Taoist philosophies, writes about seeing with your heart in this way: “Seeing with your heart allows one to feel compassion for another’s suffering, joy for another’s happiness, concern for another’s need. In seeing ourselves with our hearts we learn to make allowances for ourselves, to forgive ourselves and to love ourselves.”

I truly believe that we’re moving into a time where love and compassion will become survival words. I may not see the full transformation, but I’m grateful for being able to see and write about the beginning. There are a number of upcoming holiday programs that will provide the opportunity to think about those who are less fortunate. One such event takes place December 12, 2009, at the Harlem State Office Building. The 2nd Annual Harlem Holiday Expo is an event that will truly allow you to see with your heart. The main focus of the event will be a toy drive for children of incarcerated inmates in New York City and State prisons - children that are often forgotten.

I had an opportunity a few weeks ago to meet Henry Nelson, a successful businessman and one of the coordinators of this event. He made me aware of an organization called Pals for Christ, that provides group counseling, transitional mentoring for newly released inmates, and support for families of inmates through prayer. Donations and proceeds from the December 12th event will go to Pals for Christ to support many families during the holidays.

Harlem Holiday Expo will also give you the opportunity to shop with, and support, local businesses that will have exhibits. Dr. Bob Lee, from WBLS, will be the guest host for a day full of entertainment, including face painting, live music performances, fashion shows and much, much more. Frank Waters, President of The, and event co-coordinator, sees it as a way to help children that most people forget. The event will be from 12 - 9pm at the Harlem State office building, located at 163 West 125th Street, in the Windows Over Harlem Restaurant. Admission is $12.09 for adults, children get in free with a toy.

I’ll have a Ki Energy stress management treatment exhibit at this event. I invite you to come out and say hello. When we see through our hearts we experience the high frequencies of love and compassion. This event will not only allow you to help others, but it will also allow you to help yourself. The power of giving provides the opportunity to receive from a greater power than yourself. In reality, helping others is helping yourself. What you give is what you get.

DNA the Key to Life

In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick announced their discovery of the genetic code to the world. Interestingly, Wayne Chandler, author of The African Presence in Early Asia, notes that their discovery, consisting of 64 binary triplet figures called DNA codons, corresponds directly to the 64 binary triplet hexagrams of the I Ching. While modern day science is just learning about the key to life, research is showing that ancient wisdom has answered questions we’re still asking today. Questions like who are we, and what is our purpose in life?

In his book, Eat Right for Your Type, Dr. Peter D’Adamo writes about the different foods that each blood type should or should not eat. According to D’Adamo, a single drop of blood contains the entire genetic code of a human being. This DNA blueprint contains eons of genetic memory passed on from our ancestors that effects each of us today. There are many who believe that DNA research can also be used to address health, wealth and relationships. In her book, The DNA of Healing, Margaret Ruby writes about ways to reprogram your DNA with positive patterns.

It was only eight years ago, in 2000, when J. Craig Ventor and Francis Collins announced the sequencing of the entire human genome. Their project, known as the Human Genome Project, created data files of 20,000 to 25,000 genes in human DNA, and the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA. In 2003, scientists finished mapping the sequence of human DNA. This has allowed for advances in health research, and also police and legal work. Ruby also suggested that there is now research proving that our DNA is not a fixed code, and that our genes can be affected - and even altered - by our emotions and experiences.

The belief that the memory locked in DNA passed on by our ancestors not only determines the color of our eyes and hair, but actually influences our behavior patterns is not new. In Asia, Africa and South America, ancestor healing has been going on for thousands of years. I had to do a great deal of ancestor training when I was training in the ancient Taoist Ki Energy System I now call Ki-Do, or the Way of Ki ( Ancestor training, like many other ancient ways, such as energy healing, is now becoming recognized in the scientific community. Better late then never.

Margaret Ruby’s book gives a number of interesting ways to neutralize the negative unconscious programming that we all inherit from genes passed on from generation to generation. This negative programming can affect our ability to make money, to have strong loving relationships, and our health. I always say that there is nothing new under the Sun. The more we learn, the more we understand that what we learn is not new. If you find this subject interesting, send me an email at, or call my office at 646 329-6727.

Noetic Sciences

Many of you who follow my Urbanology column know I truly believe the spiritual science movement that’s reconnecting ancient spiritual concepts with modern day science may be the future salvation of life as we know it on earth. People around the world are starting to understand that ancient knowledge can be useful today. We’re in a time of human evolution leading to a better understanding of our power within. If you’re new to this thinking and reading this column for the first time - don’t believe it’s a coincidence. There’s no such thing. What some consider coincidence is actually the mind of the universe talking to them.

We’re experiencing a greater understanding of the oneness between energy and matter, our oneness with the universe - and the universe with us. This understanding has led science to a new respect for ancient wisdom in addressing health related issues, and improving human potential. The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS),, is taking a leadership role in legitimizing the spiritual science movement. The institute was founded in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar Mitchell and industrialist Paul N. Temple. The mission of IONS is to encourage and conduct research on human potentials.

IONS researches topics such as spontaneous remission, meditation, consciousness, alternative healing, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities, survival of consciousness after bodily death, and others. In his new international best seller, The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown (author of The DaVinci Code) features the noetic sciences in this exciting tale combining fact with fiction, with a plot structured around actual research being conducted by IONS. It will indirectly expose millions of readers to the spiritual science movement. Some will say the timing is coincidental…but we know better.

I joined IONS because of the institute’s extensive research in alternative healing practices, such as energy healing and spontaneous remission. I was trained in an ancient Korean Taoist Ki energy stress management system that I now call Ki-Do, or the way of Ki. Chunsoo is the most public part of this Ki training and treatment system. Ki masters and practitioners use sound vibrations and touch to relax the body, open harmful energy blockages and reduce stress. IONS scientists are developing scientific research to complement ancient wellness techniques like Chunsoo. I conduct free Chunsoo sessions on Wednesdays from 12 - 3:00pm at the Harlem State Office Building at 163 West 125th Street on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. (7th Avenue).

Stress is a silent killer and the basis of most illnesses. The holiday season is the most stressful time of the year. Chunsoo treatments have been known to reduce stress, address high blood pressure, back pain, arthritis, depression and insomnia. Between now and Wednesday, December 30th, I’ll keep records of people treated, and the effects of this stress management system on the quality of their lives. Perhaps IONS will be interested. I’ll keep you updated. For more information on Ki treatments and training visit or my blog at, you can also call 646 329-6727.

2012: A Matter of Time

The internet, TV and Hollywood are buzzing with 2012 predictions. Some say the world will end. Others say it’s the mark of a new beginning. All agree that something is happening, and that the Mayan calendar predictions this date is based on aren’t to be taken lightly. The Maya civilization was one of the most culturally dynamic societies in the world, according to Alexandra Bruce in her book 2012: Science or Superstition. Mayan culture was so advanced in astronomy and timekeeping many have theorized they were influenced by extraterrestrials. How could such an ancient civilization have such an understanding of the heavens and how the movements of planets affected the Earth?

The dates of the predicted changes Earth will experience are in question. December 26th, 2012 is when the Maya calendar ends after 5,200 years. It’s the last of five calendars, each lasting 5,200 years. Scientists now suggest the Sun has not been as close to our galaxy in 26,000 years, which is 5,200 times 5. According to Mayan predictions, we’re moving into the world of the fifth Sun. Others believe that December 21, 2012 is when the Mayan long count calendar signifies the end of a World Age and the beginning of a new one. Others believe October 28th, 2011 is that date.

Whatever served as the foundation of the amazing Mayan culture that combined science and spirituality came to an end around 1502. That’s when the Spaniards began the genocidal campaigns that destroyed much of the culture and literature, similar to what happened in Egypt after the Greek invasion. There are many who believe the Mayan calendar is a warning that the whole world will not end - just that part of the world that’s turned its back on nature and separated science from spirituality. Perhaps it’s time to determine if we want to be part of the material world of old - or the new age of spirituality?

Something is happening. NASA scientists speak of a puzzling surplus of high-energy electrons bombarding Earth from an unknown origin. There’s also been a sharp increase in gamma ray bursts from stars close to the galactic center. According to Bruce, “The weakening of both the Earth’s and the Sun’s magnetic shield coincides with a time of an abrupt increase in gamma ray bursts from relatively close stars. The Earth is receiving 1,000% more cosmic radiation than at any time ever recorded, much of which we don’t know anything about.” There are those who view this massive influx of new energies to be spiritually beneficial while keeping the powers that be off-guard.

I strongly suggest that we don’t buy into the Doomsday predictions of 2012. Fear and doubt are the greatest deterrents to personal and spiritual growth. Look around you. Change is becoming more and more obvious. We’re moving away from the competitive mind back to the creative mind. But remember, nature is selective. If you continue to live in a world without compassion…it will just be a matter of time.

The Harlem Holistic Wellness Collective

The Harlem Holistic Wellness Collective (HHWC) was developed after a number of talks between me and Dr. Robert Woodbine, president of San Bao Holistic Care in Harlem, concerning the need to organize the wellness practitioners we know into a body that provides health treatment and maintenance options for Harlem residents and others seeking alternative ways to address health problems.

HHWC was introduced during the Harlem Day 2009 Health Village exhibit. That day, wellness practitioners under the HHWC banner joined other health care providers and hospitals to provide hundreds of people with treatment and alternative ways to address health problems. Willie Walker, director of the Harlem State Office Building (HSOB), was so impressed with the experience that he suggested creating a wellness program at the HSOB. Consequently, Mr. Walker, Dr. Woodbine and I developed a working foundation for a community wellness program.

Every Wednesday, between 12 - 3pm, I’ll give free Ki Energy Chunsoo demonstrations in room 806 of the HSOB. These treatments are known to reduce stress, high blood pressure, back pain, depression, insomnia and other stress related health challenges (go to: or my blog at www.theartofwarogers). Dr. Woodbine will conduct a community acupuncture program - for times and dates call 212 234-9125.

The current HHWC members are: Dr. Robert J. Woodbine, N.D., M.AC.O.M., who’s formal medical training includes a doctorate in naturopathic medicine (N.D.) and master of acupuncture and oriental medicine (M.Ac.O.M.). He’s licensed in both disciplines. He’s also studied Qigong and Taijiquan in the U.S., China, Thailand, France and Switzerland.

Aswad Foster is trained in auricular acupuncture and works with Acupuncturist Without Borders. He holds a black belt in Shotokan Karate and is a certified Integral Hatha Yoga instructor, teaching New York Public school children yoga for over ten years.

Norman Spiller is a 1998 graduate of the Swedish Institute of New York, specializing in Swedish, Shiatsu and Clinical massage techniques. He’s studied at the Upledger Institute, specializing in Cranio-Sacral Therapy. Norman is also a Qigong and Tai Chi Chuan practitioner.

Lillian Butler and Eddie Robinson, owners of Raw Soul, a full service vegan, raw restaurant and juice bar located at 348 West 145th Street. Raw Soul also offers fresh, unique organic juices and smoothies.

Ruth Spiller is a teacher/Reiki Master who’s also a certified Yoga therapist. She’s taught Harmonic Movements (a rehabilitative movement form) for 10 years in Harlem and Chelsea.

I have trained in the martial arts for over thirty years, hold a six degree black belt in Goju Karate, and was inducted into the World Professional Martial Arts Organization in 2008 at Madison Square Garden. After training in the mountains of South Korea, I became the first African American master in the ancient Taoist Ki Energy stress management system called Chunsoo.

Together, The Harlem Holistic Wellness Collective’s goal is to provide effective and affordable care to address the root causes of chronic illness in communities of color. For more information on HHWC call Dr. Woodbine at 212 234-9125 or my office at 646 329-6727.

The Science of Self Healing

I often write about Asian methods of self healing, with a focus on Taoist healing arts. But my first introduction to alternative wellness methods was the study of Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda is considered by many in the East as the “Mother of all healing arts”. Pronounced “eye-oor-vay-dah” it is known as the science of life, prevention and longevity.

Ayurveda has its roots in India, where 2,000 year-old Ayurvedic writings have been found. This knowledge is also recorded in two of the Vedic texts: the Atharva and the Rig, which are more than 5,000 years old. Ayurveda was studied in other ancient cultures - in China, Egypt, Tibet and West Africa – who adapted them into their own natural healing systems.

I studied Ayurveda from 1995 to 1997 under Dr. Alex Guervaz at the New York Ayurveda Center. Dr. Guervaz was a medical doctor specializing in pathology (cancer) and allopathic medicine. Dr. Guervaz studied under Seami Sada Shiva and became a certified Ayurveda practitioner at the Bayville, New York, Ayurvedic Center.

Ayurveda specializes in holistic natural remedies and prevention, and it focuses on rebuilding the cells and tissues to support longevity. Its tools to provide healing are: herbs, yoga exercises (Ayurveda was established by the same great sages who created India’s original systems of Yoga and meditation), Vedic massages, steam therapy and sauna aromatherapy.

An Ayurvedic practitioner will use a personalized method of conducting a healing program by analyzing the individual’s constitution, also called the “health blueprint” or “body type”. This information is obtained through questionnaires that identify your body’s characteristics, known as the three doshas, or tridosha: “Vata (air) Pitta (fire) or Kapha (water).” Pulse and urine analysis are also used. It was during this time that I was introduced to Uropathy (see my blog article on this subject at )

The focus of Ayurvedic healing is the search for the root cause of illness by using methods related to the 5 senses: taste (herbs); smell (aromatherapy); touch (oil massage); sounds (mantras); and sight (color therapy). In addition, it promotes a healthy balance of the 5 natural elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.

Dr Scott Gerson writes in his book Ayurveda: The Ancient Indian Healing Art that, “All matter is composed of the five elements, which are the building blocks of existence, but only living matter has the three doshas, the three forces which govern all processes. The term dosha means ‘that which darkens or causes things to decay,’ reflecting the fact that, when out of balance, the doshas are the causative forces in the disease process”.

If you want to learn more about Ayurveda I recommend the following books: Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing, by Dr. Vasant Lad , Ayurvedic Healing: A Comprehensive Guide, by Dr. David Frawley and Gerson’s book. You can also contact the National Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine 845 278-8700 or New York Ayurveda 212 616-4127.

As a certified Ayurvedic practitioner I often use my Ayurveda training when giving Ki Energy treatments.

The Tao of Health and Longevity

I often write about concepts that have a foundation in the Taoist philosophy. But as the Taoist Old Master, Lao Tzu, once said: “The way (Tao) that can be spoken is not the real way. The name that could be named is not the real name.” Taoist philosophy is considered the way to connect with the mind of the Universe by finding balance and harmony in our life.

A major foundation of Chinese culture, Taoism is regarded as the esoteric part of Chinese tradition, and Confucianism the exoteric part. The exoteric is open and available to everyone, and the esoteric is hidden and only for those who have the requisite spiritual aptitude. Thus states Derek Bryce in his Introduction to Lao-Tzu’s famous historic classic Tao Te Ching translated by Derek Bryce and Leon Wieger. According to Daniel Reid in his book The Tao of Health Sex and Longevity, no other book’s been translated as widely as the Tao Te Ching.

Taoism is a way of life, not a religion. It’s based on the positive and negative poles (Yin and Yang in Taoist terms) of a vast electromagnetic field that’s the core foundation of our universe. The interface of Yin and Yang creates vibrations and all things in existence has its own frequency or vibration. The concept of balancing the Yin and Yang energy in our body to maximize our health and longevity is well over 5000 years old. The Western world is slowly becoming aware of Taoist related health maintenance options such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Chi Kung, Acupressure, Acupuncture and Ki Energy treatments.

Daniel Reid writes about court physician Hu Szu-hui, who presented a medical treatise on the arts of nurturing life to the Chinese emperor in 1330. Hu Szu-hui observed: “Men of high antiquity know Tao and patterned their lives on the harmony of Yin and Yang, living in complete accordance with the rhythms of nature. They observed moderation in food and drink, regularity in their daily lives, and they did not recklessly over-strain themselves. Consequently they lived long lives. People today are different. Their daily lives are irregular, they eat and drink indiscriminately, without knowing what to avoid, and they don’t observe moderation. They give themselves over to dissipation, and are perpetually dissatisfied with what they have. Consequently, most men today are ruined before the age of 50.” This was in 1330 - but it can easily be said today.

I’ll conduct a workshop in the spring at the City College Adult and Continuing Education Program that will focus on the Tao of Health and Longevity. The dates will be announced. I’ll also conduct free Ki Energy Treatments every Wednesday at the Harlem State Office building starting Wednesday, November 4th. to Wednesday, December 30th. I invite you to join me in developing ways to improve your health and longevity. I’ll provide more information on both projects in upcoming articles. You can also send me an email at or call my office at 646-329-6727 if you’re interested.

Chunsoo the Way of Ki

I was introduced to Ki treatments and training in 2000 by Laura Abadsantos, who was my financial advisor at the time. I was recuperating from an eight year battle that my late wife, Carmen, lost with cancer in 1989 - and I was in need of financial advice and planning. In the fourth year of my wife’s battle her doctors pretty much gave up on her. That is when we turned to Holistic health options.

I learned a great deal about alternative methods that could address health issues, which gave Carmen almost three and a half more years than the doctors had predicted. Carmen’s last words to me were that she was at peace because she now understood that she had to go through what she did to prepare me for what I had to do.

I told this story to Laura (who was also a Ki master) and she introduced me to an ancient Korean form of stress management called Chunsoo. Ki masters use sound vibration and touch to open energy blockages in the body. The electromagnetic nature of human energy allows it to flow through interlocking energy channels. A Chunsoo treatment, which is a form of acupressure, improves the balance and flow of the body’s vital energy. This process reduces stress, thus giving the body the opportunity to self-heal. Ki treatments and training helped me to improve the quality of my life and I also saw how it could be helpful to others. I now know that this was what I was being prepared for.

In 2001 I found myself in the mountains of South Korea learning an ancient healing martial arts form from senior Ki masters that had been secretly passed down from generation to generation. After my training – which culminated with me taking the vow to never use my Ki abilities for personal monetary profit - I returned to America as the first African-American trained as a Ki master. All things in life happen for a reason. I married Laura in 2002 and we now have a beautiful daughter, Kia, who is named after the way of Ki. I know that this, too, is all part of the great design.

I invite you to experience a Chunsoo Ki treatment this weekend, October 10th and 11th, at the WBLS Circle of Sisters expo ( at the Jacob Javits Center. We will also have a Chunsoo exhibit next week (October 16th-17th ) at the New Life Natural Health and Fitness Expo ( which is being presented at the Hotel New Yorker, located at 34th Street and 8th Avenue. Chunsoo Ki treatments are also given on Wednesdays at Toni’s Touch Day Spa in Harlem, by appointment only. Call 212 234-1171 ( For more information on Ki treatments send an email to or call 917 806-1801.

How Far Can You See

Those who follow my Urbanology column know that I’ll start my Introduction to The Book of Changes (I Ching) workshop next week as part of the City College of New York’s Adult and Continuing Education’s Fall Personal Development curriculum. You may remember that in my July Forgiveness article I wrote I planned to conduct the I Ching workshop this Fall because it would help me to jumpstart my life-long journey of exploring the mysteries of one of the world’s most amazing books.

Over the years, Thomas Cleary has been my choice as the best translator of Taoist classics like I Ching. I’ll use his translation of Cheng Yi’s Tao of Organization: The I Ching for Group Dynamics, as one of three reference books for the workshop. I’ll also use the I Ching Workbook by R.L. Wing. The third book I’ll use is a wonderful book I discovered over the summer by Wu Wei called, The I Ching Handbook: Getting What You Want. Wei writes about the mindset necessary to not only improve your ability to use the I Ching, but to improve your whole life.

Wu Wei answers the question of “How far can you see?” by writing: “Every thing we see is inside of our heads. Inside of each eye are about one hundred million rods and cones. These rods and cones are stimulated by the rays of light that enter your eye which, in turn, create impulses that travel along the optic nerve system to the brain.”

The brain receives those impulses and forms a picture. That picture is inside your head - formed by your brain, within your brain. Wei also writes that, “We never actually see an object, the only thing we see are light rays being radiated by, or reflected from objects. The view you have of the world is simply a picture that appears to be outside, but actually is inside your head.

When I started thinking about this the first thing that came to mind was the Magic Eye 3D computer-generated illusions. If you look at them for a period of time a 3D image seems to “magically” appear. According to Wu, “Changing the way you see things is much easier than changing the things you see.” One important point in this is that we react to the pictures we see in our heads, based on past experiences. That’s why some will see a glass as half full, while others see the same glass half empty.

One of the other important concepts I got from Wu’s book is that events are the language of the Universe. The essence of that communication is what we call “coincidence”. If you’re still reading, perhaps you should pick up the Wu book. You might also want to join my workshop. If so call 212 650-7312, or register on line at You still have time. The workshop starts next Tuesday, October 6th. You might also want to visit my blog at How far can you see?

In 1949 Swiss psychologist Carl Jung wrote the foreword for one of the first Western translations of the I Ching. Richard Wilhelm’s translation of this Chinese classic got the attention of the science community because one of the world’s best known psychologists provided credibility to the 2000 year old book. A book that many considered too abstruse to be intelligible, or of no value at all. In his foreword Jung introduced the term Synchronicity, which he described as a concept that takes the coincidence of events in space and time as meaning something more than mere chance.

The Amorillum Spiritual Dictionary states that Jung considered synchronicity to be a term that could be used to explain the alignment of universal forces with the life experiences of an individual. Jung believed that many experiences we perceive as coincidences are not coincidence at all, but rather the alignment of these forces creating the situation we find ourselves facing. The I Ching was the foundation of not only Jung’s theory of synchronicity - it also served as the foundation for German philosopher G.F. Hegel’s dialectical theory of history which became the foundation for Karl Marx’s theory of dialectical materialism. The theories of Hegel and Marx made a tremendous impact on the philosophical direction of Western civilization.

I am amazed that a book that is over 2000 years old could serve as the foundation for information technology (Gottfried Von Leibniz’s theory of binary mathematics 1675) and the discovery of the genetic code by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. In the last paragraph of his famous introduction Jung writes “As to the thousands of questions, doubts, and criticisms that this singular book stirs up, I cannot answer these. The I Ching does not offer itself with proofs and results; it does not vaunt itself, nor is it easy to approach. Like a part of nature, it waits until it is discovered. It offers neither facts nor power, but for lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom - if there be such - it seems to be the right book.”

As many of you know, I will conduct a four week introductory I Ching (Book of Changes) workshop during the month of October at the City College Adult and Continuing Education program (ACE) If you are interested call
212 650-7312. If you have thought about developing a better understanding of the I Ching and you are reading my column for the first time by chance - you could be having a synchronistic experience. When you are aligned with the mind of the universe there is no such thing as a coincidence.

Life is What You Make It

According to Wu Wei in his book, The I Ching Handbook, what we call a coincidence is really the Universe using events to communicate a message to us. He also suggests that we communicate to the Universe through our thoughts, actions and words. The way you think has a lot to do with how you live your life. The old saying “Life Is What You Make It” takes on greater meaning when you accept the concept of thought manifestation.

If you don’t like the way your life is going - change the way you think. Many of us spend our time thinking about the problem and then wondering why it’s so difficult to find the solution. It’s because we attract what we think. Our internal and external environment develops around what and how we think. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everything was perfect? What would your day be like if every event you experienced benefited you? It is possible to connect to the mind of the Universe if you allow yourself to believe that the mind of the Universe is perfect - and that every event you encounter is perfect and beneficial. To you!

Wu Wei addresses this concept when he writes, “If you feel that you are a victim or have had bad luck, made a mistake, or been ill-used, you may become angry, curse your luck or feel frustrated.” The events that caused your feelings are beyond your power to alter. What can be changed are your feelings. Each time an event occurs you channel the activity into a negative or positive track. The way you channel your thoughts and feelings will determine its future outcome. Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was a misfortune and in time realize that what you thought was a misfortune was really a blessing?

It may not be easy to accept every event that you experience as a benefit but, when you think about it, you only have two ways to react. To think in a way that will bring out the potential good of the situation. Or curse your luck and bring out the negative side of the experience. Life is what you make it. I challenge you to join me in exploring the philosophy of viewing all events as being beneficial. I assure you that if you try this way of thinking the quality of your life will improve.

Wu Wei writes that, “Most of the time when a difficult situation arises we see it only for what it appears to be, and fail to see it for what it really is: an opportunity for benefits of self awareness and personal growth.” In other words: Life Is What You Make It.

I will discuss this concept in more detail during my Introduction To The I Ching workshop this October at the City College Fall Adult and Continuing Education Program. If you’re interested, call 212 650-7312, or go online at to the personal development section.

Today there are many people in the world who believe that there’s no such thing as coincidence. The concept of a pattern and reason for everything we experience is very ancient. But I believe human evolution is moving to the next stage of consciousness - where coincidence has a place. Which is why I often write about the spiritual/science movement that is bringing ancient wisdom and modern science closer together.

I recently picked up a book entitled Atlantis by David Gibbins. It was interesting to me because, like Dan Brown’s work, David Gibbins tells a story loaded with real facts. I was planning to take a trip with my family so I packed the book. I also picked up The I Ching Handbook, by Wu Wei, since I’ll be conducting a four week introductory workshop to the I Ching this fall at The City College of New York’s Adult and Continuing Education Program .

I immediately opened the Handbook to a page that read, “Because you are reading this, be aware that the Universe, in its complete awareness, has brought you together with what you need.” I bought the book. Due to bad weather our travel plans changed overnight. After spending hours working with the airlines and hotels the only place that was available within our travel itinerary was the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

I was always intrigued by the legend of the advanced human minds that ruled a land called Atlantis in 5500 B.C. with technology as advanced the twentieth century’s. Somehow the continent and technology of Atlantis was destroyed, only the legend remains. There are many theories as to what could have happened. The one that fits best here is that “the human evolution” was too fast and technology separated the Atlantiens from the mind of the universe. Some believe we may be close to a similar fate if we aren’t careful. That’s why I believe that the spiritual/science movement is very important.

Wu Wei writes, “It is of utmost importance that you become aware that you and your Universe are in constant communication…we speak to the Universe with our words, thoughts and actions. The Universe speaks to us with events.” Wu goes on to say “Events are the language of the Universe, an example of that communication is what we call coincidence.”

If we can accept what we call coincidence as the Universe talking to us, and our words, thoughts and actions as our way of communicating to the mind of the universe, our ability to improve the quality of our life and the lives of others will be enhanced. I’ll be the first to admit that this is not an easy concept to grasp. If you’re reading this article the Universe is communicating to you based on your thoughts, actions or words. We’re connected because it was the same universal communication that motivated me to write this article from Atlantis. Perhaps in time we will understand the

Or not.

God is Love

I often write about my views concerning the difference between religion and spirituality and find it encouraging how science and spirituality now seem to be coming closer together. It’s never been my intention to disrespect any religious beliefs when I write about the politics of religion. I believe God is Love in the earthly form of energy. Everything in our world vibrates, I believe that in humans the higher the frequency of that vibration, the closer one is to the mind of the universe.

Science now understands that the brain is an electrochemical organ. When the brain is in an Alpha state, a frequency of about 9 to 14 cycles per second, the body’s relaxed and capable of internal and external healing. Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, Ki Energy training and treatments, are excellent ways one can use to reach the Alpha state. Mother Clara Hale proved that the human frequency of unconditional love was healing in her noted work at Harlem’s Hale House program. Many heroin-addicted babies were saved by Hale house volunteers coming to the hospital just to hold them. In Korea this is called chunsoo (Heavenly Hands): the power of healing by touch.

It’s my belief that Jesus was a spiritual person who provided evidence of the power of unconditional love. I also believe it was the politics of religion that had him killed. Eckhart Tolle writes in his best selling book A New Earth, that the politics of religion provides a foundation for some to equate truth with thought, and as they’re completely identified with thought, they claim to be in sole possession of the truth. Unless you believe exactly as they do you’re wrong.

Tolle goes on to say that more and more people are starting to understand that how spiritual you are has nothing to do with what you believe, but everything to do with your state of consciousness. This, in turn, determines how you act in the world and interact with others. I remember as a child I lived with my grandmother in South Carolina until I was 5 years old. A lady lived up the road from our house who we called Miss Mary. She washed clothes for a living, she was good with herbs and animals. I liked Miss Mary. She didn’t always go to church, so some people talked about her.

Miss Anderson was one of those people. She always had a Bible in her hand and was always in other people’s business. Her family had a good business and she gave a lot of money to the church because God had blessed them. But Miss Anderson could be very mean to be so close to God. One day I asked Miss Mary why God was so good to Ms. Anderson when you are so kind and helpful to so many people. Miss Mary smiled at me and said “God is Love”. I’d forgotten about that talk with Miss Mary until I started writing this article.

Miss Mary was a wise lady.

The Tao of Organization

I am happy to find so much interest in my upcoming October workshop at City College: The Introduction to The Book of Change, better known as the I Ching. The question that was asked most by people I ran into during the past few weeks was the name and title of the books that I will use. As promised, I will start providing information in my Urbanology articles that will help prepare workshop participants to obtain greater value from the four week workshop. I will focus on two books. The first is an excellent workbook titled The I Ching Workbook by R.L. Wing. You can get a used one from for under six dollars. This is the only book I would recommend on the I Ching that is not translated by Harvard’s Thomas Cleary.

The Tao of Organization: The I Ching for Group Dynamics by Cheng Yi will be the second book that the workshop will focus on. This Thomas Cleary translation is considered to be the best I Ching strategic handbook for business, political, social and religious organizations. It was written by Cheng Yi a distinguished educator in eleventh-century China and founder of the Study of Inner Design a study of both personal and collective life. Cleary writes that “the Tao of Organization analyzes relationships and power configurations within groups”.

Last week I wrote about how the 2000 year old I Ching influenced the discovery of information technology, the genetic code and the use of DNA, two factors that will take us past the 21st century. Cheng Yi’s Inner Design version of the I Ching played a major role in the life of Japanese Organizational genius Matsushita Konosuke, founder of Panasonic, National and other multinational Corporations. You can also get this book at I recommend the above two books for anyone interested in introducing themselves to the Book of Change.

If your schedule will not allow you to take my workshop I would also recommend The Taoist I Ching: Translated by Thomas Cleary. This translation has more of a spiritual focus, but it can be hard to grasp without some basic understanding of the Book of Change. We will review this book also but we will focus on the two workbooks. If you would like to read my past articles on the I Ching or the Taoist Philosophy please visit my blog at And if you are interested in the I Ching, Book of Change four week workshop I’ll be presenting this October, you can register online line at or call the City College Adult and Continuing Education Program at 212 650-7312.

The Book of Change

The Book of Change, also known as the I Ching, is a book that’s over 5,000 years old. It is considered the oldest of the Chinese Classics according to Dr. Thomas Cleary who, in my opinion, is one of the best translators of classical texts on Taoism and Buddhism. Even though most will consider China the origin of The Book of Change, Wayne Chandler writes in The African Presence in Early Asia (one of my favorite books, edited by Runoko Rashidi and Ivan Van Sertima) that The Book of Change can be traced back to the ancient Ife of West Africa. It is said that the Ifa system of divination dates back to 20,000 B.C.E.

In 1675 German mathematician and philosopher Gottfried Von Leibnez, after being introduced to The Book of Change, was able to confirm his system of binary mathematics, which became the basis of computer science. In 1953 Dr. James Watson and Francis Crick announced to the world their discovery of the genetic code, consisting of 64 binary triplet figures called DNA codons, which correspond directly to the 64 binary triplet hexagrams of The Book of Change. We have yet to fully understand how the use of the genetic code and the future development of information technology will change the world. All we can say is that The Book of Change laid the foundation for our future.

I consulted The Book of Change with a question when I decided to write this article, with the understanding that the answer is always directed to the one who is consulting. Nevertheless, I thought that I would share the results with you. I asked the question: what is love? The hexagram that turned up for me was number 15: Humility. Part of the answer to my question reads as follows: “When one is able to nurture and to submit, one governs oneself with strictness and responds to others with openness; the mind becomes increasingly humble, while the way becomes increasingly lofty-outwardly one is lacking, inwardly one has more than enough. Submitting to truth and according with people, one rests in the highest good and does not move. This is why the path of humility is beneficial”.

If you are interested in learning more about the I Ching - The Book of Change I will conduct a four week introduction workshop on “The Book of Change this Fall at the City College of New York’s Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) program. For more information call 212 650-7312 or visit

The Yin and Yang of Wellness

I’ve written about how the Taoist concept of the dynamic interface between yin and yang is the foundation of all things. Modern science has proven that everything in existence vibrates. That you must have a dynamic interface between a negative and positive (yin & yang) to create a vibration which is energy. Last week I wrote about the human energy field and how modern science and ancient wisdom agree that vital energy can dictate the degree of our well-being.

In Taoist energy wellness treatments, human organs are divided into yin organs and yang organs. The lungs, spleen/pancreas, heart, and liver are yin organs. The large intestine, stomach, small intestine, bladder/urinary tract and gallbladder are yang organs. When there is a balance in the flow of energy in our body we are well. When there is an imbalance of the flow of energy in our body we become ill.

Negative emotional stress is a major cause of illness, and the imbalance of yin and yang organs. Sorrow and grief can cause an imbalance in the large intestine and lung. Worry can cause an imbalance in the stomach and spleen/pancreas. Over excitement can cause an imbalance in the heart and small intestine. Fear/apprehension can cause an imbalance in the bladder and kidney. And anger/frustration can cause an imbalance in the gallbladder and liver. We all suffer from negative emotional stress because we are very seldom in the present. All too often our thoughts are on the frustrations and grief of the past, or the fear and anxiety of the future.

When the vital flow of energy is blocked by negative emotion, or stress, it is important to turn that stressed voice in our head off, and experience the harmony and balance of the present. The ancient Korean art of Chunsoo is an excellent way to bring balance to the flow of vital energy in the body. Ki energy masters use sound vibration and touch to open energy blockages; allowing the body’s electromagnetic energy to flow through interlocking energy channels, creating the feeling of relaxation and harmony.

Allegra Taylor writes in her book, Healing Hands, that “The energy that activates another human being’s failing recuperative powers of life-force has been called unconditional love. It is non-judgemental and compassionate. By creating a channel through which this loving energy flows…a healer can speed up, sometimes to an astonishing degree, the revitalizing process”.

The foundation of Chunsoo treatments is unconditional love. The treatments will relax you and allow your body to rejuvenate. Relaxation can be very healing, but most people just don’t know how to relax. A major reason why so many suffer from stress related illness.

If you’d like to experience a Ki Energy Chunsoo treatment, make an appointment any Wednesday, between the hours of 11am and 6pm, at Toni’s Touch Day Spa (, located at 2364 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. between 138th and 139th Streets (by appointment only - call 212 234-1455). Bring this article and I’ll give you a 10% discount.

The Human Energy Field

I would like to thank all the people, old friends and new friends, who came to the New York Ki Energy exhibit last Sunday, July 26th, at the Harlem Week “A Great Day in Harlem” event at U.S. Grant National Park. For the many who experienced a Ki Energy “Chunsoo” treatment for the first time - as promised - here is a little more information on how and why you felt relaxed and lighter after treatment.

Modern science has proven what many have known for thousands of years, that everything in existence vibrates. According to the philosophy of Taoism, the foundation of all vibrations is the dynamic interface between yin and yang. I explained this concept to my six year old daughter Kia (named after the vital energy of Ki) by using a flashlight battery. Yin and Yang is the same as plus and minus, or positive and negative. Only the interface between yin and yang creates light, and light is energy.

If all things in existence are in constant movement, or vibrational energy, the foundation of all things is something called universal energy fields(UEF), better known to mystics and sages of old as Prana, Chi, Ki or God. Energy is in all things, and all things are energy. Science has proven that humans have what is called a Human Energy Field (HEF), also referred to as the human Aura. We’ve known for some time that humans generate electromagnetic energy that can be measured using ECGs for the heart, and EEGs for the brain.

Dr. Leo Kim writes in his book Healing the Rift: Bridging the Gap Between Science and Spirituality, that Dr. Valerie Hunt, a professor of Kinesiology at UCLA using a machine she developed called an electromyograph (that measured electrical activity in muscles) found verifiable electrical fields outside the body that correlated with what many ancient cultures called chakras. Dr. Kim proposes that Dr. Hunt’s research gives scientific evidence to the ancient knowledge that a flow of vital energy in the human body (Chi, Ki, Chakras) can dictate the degree of our well-being.

When the flow of vital energy in our bodies is balanced we are well. When there is an imbalance of the flow of vital energy, or Ki, in our body, we become ill. Stress is the major factor in more then 80% of human illness. A great deal of our stress is emotional. That story in our head that never turns off, probably the same voice that’s talking to you now. We’re often experiencing thoughts of anger, frustration and grief from the past, or fear, worry and anxiety about the future. We’re rarely in the present. A Ki Energy treatment allows you to experience the relaxing, healing feeling of being in the present. Starting in August you will be able to get Ki Energy Treatments at Toni’s Touch Day Spa,, located at 2364 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. between 138th and 139th Streets, on Wednesdays by appointment only. If you’re interested call 212 234-1455.

The Power of Forgiving

I’ve started to consult the I Ching (Book of Change) more often lately, partly because I plan to conduct an introduction workshop on the I Ching at the City College of New York Adult and Continuing Education Program this Fall (ACE 212 650-7312). I say partly because the workshop is my way of staying on track with my lifetime commitment to study the mysteries of the Taoist concept of causality and change. The best way to learn is to teach.
I consulted the I Ching for insight on what to write about this week and the eighth hexagram Accord came up. Association with one another and learning from one another is how the I Ching explains Accord.

It took me some time to understand how this would relate to an article but the advice one gets from the I Ching is always personal. I realized that the power of forgiving was the advice I needed to give two of my family members who were not in accord with each other. I also realized that the power of forgiving is an important concept to talk about. There’s no power in seeing yourself as a victim - a major reason that stands in the way of forgiving.

I interviewed Jamillah Shabazz, a spiritual channeler and founder of the Healing Center ( on my Urbanology radio program last week. In appreciation she sent me an interesting CD entitled Imprints of the Soul, where her Spiritual guide talked about the loss of power one experiences when one considers themselves to be victims. You must lose yourself to find yourself, only then can you understand the power and freedom of letting go. Somebody did something to you, you consider yourself to be the victim, and you carry the emotional pain and the story
with you long after the action that caused the emotional or physical pain.

Emotional stress builds if you cannot forgive and let go of the past. Eckhart Tolle writes in his bestselling book, A New Earth, that “Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?”
Some may view forgiving as a sign of weakness, but the negative emotional pain they carry is self destructive and a primary source of many illnesses. Being in accord with oneself is being in harmony. To be truly in harmony you must be in the present, not in the pain of the past, or the fear of the future.

I invite you to join me next Sunday, July 26th, at the 1st Harlem Week 2009 outdoor festival ( at U.S. Grants National Memorial Park, located at West 122nd Street and Riverside Drive. I’ll be giving Ki Energy Chunsu treatments from 12 - 7pm. Chunsu treatments help your body to address stress by giving you the opportunity to experience being in the present. If you bring this article to my booth I’ll give you a free treatment.

The Five Elements

Last week I wrote about the Eight Gates, which form the foundation of the I Ching, better known as the Book of Change. The permutations of the eight trigrams, which are combinations of the yin broken line and the yang unbroken line, form the 64 trigrams used in the Book of Change. The Book of Change has been used for over 2000 years by enlightened ones interested in unlocking the mysteries of life. The concept of yin and yang can also be viewed as negative and positive. All things in the world we know vibrate at different frequencies - which means there is a yin and yang in everything.

Centuries ago Chinese and Korean naturalists developed the theory of the five elements - Earth, Fire, Wood, Water and Metal - as guiding principles for wellness diagnosis and therapy. This dynamic interaction of yin and yang
in the human body is divided into two groups of five yin organs and six yang organs. Each of the yin and yang organs is identified with one of the elements. The heart (yin) and small intestine (yang) are associated with fire, the spleen (yin) and the stomach (yang) with earth, the lungs (yin) and large intestine (yang) with metal, the kidney (yin) and bladder (yang) with water, and the liver (yin) and gall bladder (yang) with wood.

Energy treatments and training make use of the vibration of yin and yang by using sound, movement and touch to bring balance and harmony to the body. In Tai Chi, each of the fundamental movements represents one of the five elements. A step forward is identified with metal, withdrawal with wood, looking left is associated with water, looking right with fire and central equilibrium is connected to earth. Ki Energy treatments, such as Chunsu, use sound vibration and touch to balance internal organs and promote equilibrium in the entire body.

As part of the Harlem Relieve the Stress program, a four week project to get as many people started on paths of a healthier lifestyle, the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce and the New York Road Runners will conduct four Relieve the Stress sessions at Historic Parks in Harlem. Dr Robert Woodbine will give Introduction to Tai Chi lessons, I’ll give Chunsu treatments, and there will be demonstrations of walking and running tips from NYRR coaches. The four sessions will lead up to the August 22nd Harlem Week Family Walk-A-Thon and the first annual Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run. For more information visit or, you can also call the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce at 212 862-7200.

I will also conduct a four week workshop entitled Introduction to the I Ching starting at 6pm on Tuesday, October 6th, at the City College Adult and Continuing Education program. To register call 212 650-7312. The yin and yang concept represents the dynamic interaction that creates all of reality. I invite you to learn how the basic understanding of this concept can improve the quality of your life.

The Eight Gates

Another birthday has passed for me. And I have now reached the point of reflection on my life which will become the foundation for my journey into the future. I have come to the understanding that to prepare for tomorrow I must focus on bringing balance to my life today. I also know that the success of any future venture will depend on my ability to bring success to as many people as possible. By success I mean helping to bring balance to the lives of as many people as possible - starting with myself. After coming to this understanding I realized that to accomplish my goals it will be necessary to dedicate the rest of my life to mastering the mysteries of the Eight Gates.

I often write about the I Ching and it’s influence on past, present and future human development. The eight trigrams that serve as the foundation of the sixty four hexagrams which comprise the I Ching (better known as the Book of Change), corresponds with the 64 combinations found within the genetic code. It is said that the I Ching’s influence helped James Watson and Francis Crick discover the genetic code, unlocking the very mystery of life itself. If you Google “I Ching Hexagram” you can see a picture of the eight trigrams of the I Ching, also known as the Eight Gates. The foundation of the eight gates is the broken Yin line __ __ and the straight Yang line ____ which represents the negative and positive dualism existing within all things - from the protons and electrons of the atom to the conscious and subconscious of the human psyche.

Taijiquan (Tai Chi) Grand Master Abdul Musawwir introduced me to the circular movement of the Eight Gates, which can be used for health and defense. In Jou Tsung Hwa’s classic book, “The Dao of Taijiquan: Way to Rejuvenation”, the movement of the Eight Gates are described as North, North East, East, South East, South, South West, West and North West. While studying Ki Energy treatment and training in the mountains of Korea, I was taught the energy relationship of the Eight Gates with North (Heaven) representing the Electromagnetic Field and South (Earth) representing the Bio-Psychic Field. If you Google the South Korean National flag you will see it has four of the Eight Gates: Heaven, Earth, Fire and Water. I plan to conduct an I Ching workshop in the Fall at the City College of New York , because the best way to master a subject is to teach it.

I will write more about how the Eight Gates can be used as a foundation to improve the quality of life. I invite you to join me on this journey. I will keep you updated on events and programs that can help anyone interested. You can also send me an email at for more information or questions on how the Eight Gates can improve your quality of life.

A Day for Fathers

June 21st is Father’s Day, and I wanted to write something in tribute to all the fathers in the world. I was not sure about the history of this day of celebration for fathers. I consulted Wikipedia, a very helpful online encyclopedia (, to learn about the history of Father’s Day in America. Many countries celebrate a day for fathers throughout the year. According to Wikipedia, the first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in Spokane WA. Sonora Smart Dodd was a driving force behind the inauguration of the first Father’s Day in honor of her father, a single parent who raised six children.

It took a few years to make the holiday official. A bill was introduced to Congress in 1913, President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea in 1924, but it was not until the Associated Men’s Wear Retailers formed a National Father’s Day Committee in New York City in the 1930’s did the legitimizing and commercialization of the celebration become a national movement. In 1966 President Lyndon Johnson issued a proclamation making the third Sunday in June an official federal holiday to celebrate fathers.

History tells us that if it were not for the political/economic focus that commercialized father’s day, the celebration might not have been what we understand it to be today. Like all things in our world, this also has a yin and a yang component to it. While it is wonderful to have a dad to reflect on for Father’s Day, the commercialization sometimes can overshadow the relationship between father and child. There are many different relationships we have with our fathers, but we all have one thing in common: if it were not for our father and mother we would not be here.

The gift of life is, in my view, why we celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. I did not fully understand my father until I became a father. There are many who have no father to celebrate with next Sunday for one reason or another. Father’s Day will also have different meanings for different people. But if you’re reading this article, I recommend you focus on the concepts of gratitude and love for life this coming Father’s Day, whether you are with your father or not. Love is a healing frequency. It is being in the here and now, and being thankful for the opportunity to be. Don’t forget to reach out to your father if you can.

Happy Father’s Day.

Water on Mars

On June 20th 2008 one day after my birthday, at 8:03 p.m. ET, reported that NASA had found evidence of water on Mars. I thought that was a big thing. If water is on Mars there’s a strong possibility that very soon NASA will discover life on Mars. According to a scientist friend at NASA, the possibility of finding life on Mars is why this remarkable discovery was kept somewhat low key. My friend then said she hoped that after January 20th the religious right in government might have less of a controlling influence on government funding for scientific projects that might raise questions about what some religions believe to be true concerning human development on earth.

The politics of religion has a foundation in control and the “I am right and you are wrong” belief. Eckhart Tolle addressed this in his book A New Earth when he states that: “Beyond the realm of simple and verifiable facts, the certainty that ‘I am right and you are wrong’ is a dangerous thing in personal relationships as well as relationships between nations, tribes and religions.” I think it was Nelly who said “More people have been killed in the name of the Lord then in any natural disaster, disease or war” in his song N Dey Say. Four hundred years ago if you talked about technology that today we take for granted you might have been burned alive in certain communities due to the politics of religion.

Water on Mars may open the door to a new spiritual consciousness for mankind and perhaps new interpretations of the concept of God. Some of the major conflicts that the world is faced with today is due to the religious beliefs by many that “I am right and you are wrong”, and “My God is better then yours”. Where does that argument stand when we start to deal with life forms from other worlds? Tolle is correct when he states that “If you believe only your religion is the truth, you are using it in the service of the ego. Used in such a way religion becomes ideology and creates an illusory sense of superiority as well as division and conflict between people.”

I often write about my concept of God, which is simple. Let’s take gravity. God is gravity, and no matter who you are, male or female, rich or poor, Christian, Muslim or Jew, if you jump off a roof you’ll fall. There is no discrimination in gravity and there is no discrimination in God.

Water on Mars may signal the beginning of an evolution of the collective conscience of humans on earth. There’s a new movie coming out that’s a remake of an old Sci-Fi classic, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”. Who knows, perhaps the day will come when the human race may be forced to accept that there is only one race on earth - the human race - when faced with the reality of life on other worlds.

Africans in Asia
Tony Rogers

Tieguai - One of the nine Immortals of Taoism

As we move into the world of transparency our history, or as some say – his/story – is being viewed by many as an ever-changing story. The discovery of the genetic code, by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953, provided scientific proof that modern humanity originated in Africa. Runoko Rashidi and Ivan Van Sertima in their outstanding collaborative work, The African Presence in Early Asia, provide evidence that Diminutive Blacks travelled and sojourned from one corner of Asia to the other over 90,000 years ago.
Runoko Rashidi, who is considered by many to be the world’s foremost authority on the African presence in Asia, states that there is abundant evidence to show that Black people, within documented historical periods, created or influenced some of ancient Asia’s most important and enduring high-cultures. I often write about Tieguai, who was an African martial artist known as the Iron-Staff Immortal, one of the nine immortals (Fathers) of Taoism. The hand painted thirteenth century picture of Tieguai leaves no doubt that Africans had an influence in China’s Golden Age.
It has been widely acknowledged that, between 1630 and 1830, the Atlantic slave trade, and the rise of modern European imperialism, created the need to rewrite history concerning the African contribution to the civilized world, as a way to justify slavery. The best two research books, that provide excellent data, on this issue is Martin Bernal’s Black Athena: The Fabrication of Ancient Greece and Egypt Revisited, edited by Ivan Van Sertima.
You might ask yourself why all this information is so important in 2009. I believe it is important because it is impossible to understand and have love for others if one does not have an understanding of, and love for, self. It is important for our young to know the truth. I often write about the ongoing evolution of the Human Race, and the optimistic future of science and spirituality coming closer together, with the tremendous potential of our future resting on past African and Asian cultures.
The discovery of the 64 binary triplet figures called DNA, by Watson and Crick, contain the key to unlocking the very mystery of life itself. These 64 binary triplets correspond directly to the 64 binary triplet hexagrams of the 2000 year old Chinese literary classic, I Ching, known also as the Book of Changes. There is now evidence that the I Ching could have been influenced by the 3000 year old Ifa oracle of West Africa, which is also based on the binary principle.
As the saying goes, understanding the past can help one prepare for the future.

The Power of Affirmation
Urbanology 11/10/07

I have written about the power of thought which is connected to the law of attraction. You attract to you what you think most about. Like the universal law of gravity there is a growing acceptance of the spiritual science theory that considers thought a spiritual action, and a universal law which creates our material reality?

The universal law of gravity means no matter who are what you are the law applies to you race creed or religion. When we consider thought to be a spiritual action we are saying like gravity no matter who you are your thoughts will attract to you that in which you think about the most negative or positive.

Charles F. Haanel (The Master Key System) states” The human race is on the eve of a new consciousness, a new power and a new realization of resources the self”. Haanel goes on to say that “the most powerful forces of nature are the invisible forces, and the most powerful forces of man are his invisible forces, his spiritual force. The only way that the spiritual force can manifest according to the spiritual science concept is through the process of thinking. Haanel goes on to say that thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses, and thought is the only product of thinking.

You might not understand or believe in the law of gravity it makes no difference it will still apply to you just as the law of attraction. wither you believe it or not your thoughts will attract to you and manifest in your life the things that you think about with the most passion. For this reason students of the spiritual sciences believe that this century will produce the greatest progress in mental and spiritual power.

If you have read up to this point you might be wondering how you might test this spiritual science theory of the power of thought. To do a test first you must understand that the “I” is not the physical body or the mind. When you say I think the “I” tells the mind what to think. When you say “I” go the “I” tells the physical body where to go. Which brings us to the power of the affirmation. I invite you to use the following affirmation as a self test. I truly believe that if you repeat the following affirmation over and over until it becomes a part of your being your life will change because your thoughts will attract to you that in which you think about with passion. This is the affirmation I suggest that you use: I am healthy, I am wealthy, I am loving, I am compassionate, I am whole I am complete and I am happy. You be the judge your life will improve if you believe that you came into this world with the power to manifest your thoughts into reality.

Stress Awareness
Urbanology May 2009

April was Stress Awareness month. Most people know that there is a close relationship between stress and illness, but have no idea of just what stress is. I believe that the emotional attachment we have to the “stories” in our head is a major factor contributing to the mental, emotional, or physical tension known as stress. The stories that we play, over and over, in our heads create emotional blockages. These emotional blockages cause stress.

All too often the stories we carry around about what happened, over time, becomes far more significant than what really happened. And when we can’t, or won’t, let go - we create energy blockages, which produce stress. Interestingly, “I am right” and “you are wrong” dialogs are factors found in most of the emotional stress we experience.

Right and wrong is really based on a phenomenon called “collective agreement”. If enough people agree on something it becomes their “truth”. The emotional stress of anger and fear centered on the “I am right” and “you are wrong” factor in any “truth” issue continues until the agreement changes. When the agreement changes the truth changes. When the truth changes the emotional story connected to the issue also changes.

What does all this mean? Simply, that much of the harmful emotional stress we experience due to anger, sadness, and fear is based on what we “believe” to be true. Eckhart Tolle, in his book “A New Earth”, describes the truth as “a number of stories that become a collective agreement”. My point in discussing all this is to emphasize one fact: If you are carrying a story around in your head that’s emotionally attached to anger, sadness or fear - let it go. It’s making you sick.

Learn to turn the voice in your head off. If you accept the fact that what you believe to be true today can change tomorrow, you’ll be more flexible in your opinions and thoughts - which reduces stress. This is very important if you’re in a leadership position. In the ancient Taoist book of Leadership and Strategy, The Huainanzi, there’s a passage that states:

“Those who can become strong leaders must be able to find winners. Those who can win must be strong. Those who can be strong are able to use the power of other people. To be able to use the power of other people, it is necessary to win people’s hearts. To be able to win people’s hearts, it is necessary to have self-mastery. To be capable of self-mastery, it is necessary to be flexible.”
Stress Awareness is something that must be practiced अल थे time.

The Past is our Future

In last weeks column I talked about a book that I used as one of the foundations in developing my strategic management concepts “ The Tao of Organization”. The I Ching for group dynamics by Cheng Yi, translated by Thomas Cleary. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people who over the past week asked me what the I Chang was and why I used it in developing my urban strategic management concepts.

To quote Thomas Cleary, who in my opinion is on of the best translators of the Chinese classics “ The I Ching “ The Book of Change” is considered the oldest of the Chinese classics that for the past 2000 years has been considered a book of fundamental principles by philosophers, politicians, mystics, scientists and mathematicians. The I Ching is the foundation of the Taoist Yin/Yang theory.

The importance of the I Ching came to me has a Philosophy student at The City College of New York at a Black Studies program where the guest speaker was Dr. Ivan Van Sertima who gave a talked about his new book “African Presence in Early Asia” a wonderful book that opened a new world of understanding for me. Dr. Van Sertima explained that that the general consensus is that the I Ching originated in China but its origin can be traced to the West Asian Black Akkado-Sumerians of Elam-Babylonia 2800B.C.E.

You may still ask what does the I Ching have to do with today? There are many answers to this question but the two most important to the world today in my opinion are the following. The discovery of the genetic code, which has changed how we see the world. It has allowed scientist to use the DNA code to pin point the exact location in Africa where the human race begin, and it has changed the way we look at both life and death. In 1953 James Watson and Francis Crick announced their discovery of the genetic code consisting of 64 binary figures which correspond directly to the 64 binary figures of the I Ching which was a factor in their discovery.

The second important world development is Information technology, we all know how computers have and will continue to change the world. In 1675, German mathematician Gottfried Von Leibniz, after being introduced to the binary system of the I Ching while traveling in the East introduced to the world the concept of binary mathematics which became the foundation of computer science.

Dr. Van Sertima’s book shows without a doubt the close relationship between Asia and Africa. Wise men say that history repeats its self I believe this to be true, that is why I am sure that the time for strategic multi-cultural marketing and management is now. So when I am asked why I used the I Ching in the development of the Urbanology Strategic management system. I reply that I am just following the direction given to me by my ancestors.

Healing the Rift
Urbanology May 12 2009

I often write about my interest in the Spiritual Science movement, which is a growing awareness of the closing of the gap between scientific research and the concept of spirituality. In 2004 the movie What the Bleep Do we Know ( became one of the most successful documentaries of all time. The focus of the film was to highlight, in a very entertaining way, research in quantum physics, neurology and evolutionary thought that connects science with the concept of spirituality. Distributed in over 30 countries, for many this was the beginning of the spiritual science movement. I believe that our continuing human evolutionary process, and the interest in the spiritual science concept, has been a major factor in the tremendous success of Dr. Leo Kim’s best selling book Healing the Rift: Bridging the Gap Between Science & Spirituality.

Dr. Kim, a scientist and biotechnological executive with over 50 scientific publications and patents, has developed a very interesting modern-day examination of science versus spirituality. Quantum physics scientists have developed scientific proof that the universe consists of energy fields of different types and frequencies. Kim writes that humans generate energy fields at various frequencies. Kim goes on to say that humans are affected emotionally, cognitively and behaviorally by electromagnetic energy fields that exist in our environment.

Dr. Kim also points out the fact that energy healing concepts have been used by spiritual healers for thousands of years. Kim explains how Dr. Valerie Hunt, a physical therapist and a professor of Kinesiolgy at UCLA, while using a machine called an electromyography to measure electrical activity in the muscles, discovered verifiable electrical fields outside the body. These fields were better correlated with the chakras than with any organs, thus providing scientific evidence for the ancient Hindu, Chinese and Korean teachings about the connection of healing and energy fields.

Dr. Kim gives a number of examples of how science and spirituality are growing closer together as we become more aware of who we are and how much we don’t know. The following quote from Dr. Kim pretty much sums up his research “All of the theories of science and all of the teachings of religions and spirituality are but metaphors that attempt to describe reality. There is now an agreement that we do not know what is really out there”.

What Dr. Kim, and many others, are now saying is that knowledge that is well over 6,000 years is being proven to be scientific fact, not just a spiritual concept. Through my training as a Ki Energy master I learned in the mountains of Korea how to use internal and external energy fields to relax the body - thus allowing it to self heal. If you would like to experience a Ki energy treatment call my office at 646 329-6727, or send me an email at You can also follow my new blog at

The Age of Integrity
Urbanology Systems November 20th 2008

Webster’s Dictionary defines integrity as a strict adherence to a standard of value or conduct. Personal honesty and unity is also part of Webster’s definition of integrity. We currently live in what I believe to be an environment of change. A change towards a mind set where true value is placed on honesty and unity. Not due to a voluntary mind shift towards altruistic values in our collective consciences, but for survival. For the world and mankind to survive the competitive mind must be replaced by the creative mind in our collective conscience.

We have lived for many generations in the competitive mind set, an environment of limitations where fortunes have been made on the backs of or at the expense of others.
A time where integrity fairness and honesty was all to often associated with weakness, foolishness, and a path way to failure especially in business and politics. An environment that replaced spirituality with the politics of religion. I believe we are now experiencing the beginning of a change from the completive mind set of limitations to the creative mind set of abundance, The Age of Integrity.

This new Age of Integrity will be the next major step in the evolution of mankind. I believe this change will take place because of the natural law of survival and adaptation a natural law that has brought us to our current state. Many are now beginning to understand that if the earth is to continue to support mankind integrity will have to reestablish it’s self in both business and politics. This concept is not new as the saying goes timing is everything. Wallace D. Wattles talked about the creative mind set in the late 1800’s in his book “The Science of Getting Rich” We are now in a time and place where our survival instincts are beginning to associate creative thinking and integrity with winning.

This change my not be fully realized in my life time but I feel blessed to have the vision to see its beginning. All too often visionaries experience a great deal of loneliness and ridicule. For this reason only the very few that have had the courage and endurance to follow their vision and most importantly to enroll others into their vision have been recognized or remembered. So I would like to enroll you into the possibility of a world where the best and most successful business practice is to create profit not at the expense of others but in some way to benefit others.

Wattles was ahead of his time when he wrote “when you can give a person more in use value than you take in cash value; you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction”. All reality as we know or believe it to be starts with a thought. Thought manifestation is real we do it all of the time. In the Age of Integrity the me generation will be replaced by the us generation, more fortunes will be made by creative ways of helping others and improving the quality of life then the old competitive way. Nature is selective in the New Age a lack of integrity will make you extinct. Don’t take my word for this just open your eyes and look around it’s just the beginning but the change to a new age has started.

The Power of Thought
Urbanology November 6 2008

Thought is the mother of change. Every change humans have made in the material world has started with a thought. When you look around everything you can see and some you can’t see started with a thought in the head of a person. According to Charles F. Haanel in his book the Master Key System “the individual may act on the Universal and the result of this action and interaction is cause and effect, thought, is the cause, and the experience with which you meet in life are the effect.”

It is believed by many including myself that thought is a spiritual
Activity endowed with creative power. Fear and doubt often stands in the way of the creative use of thought to manifest desired effects in our lives and the world. A creative thought which is a spiritual act can change ones environment. To do so one most have faith in ones ability to change that in which a society’s collective conscience may consider being the truth.

Charles Haanel puts it this way “we know that thought is building for us the think we think of and actually bring it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and will continually send the things we desire further away. Our thoughts can be our worse enemy, if not monitored.

When Jackie Roberson started to think he could become the first African American in the white only professional baseball league the collective conscience of many in America did not believed that it would ever happen for a host of reasons. When Mohandas Gandhi developed the thought that he could lead India to independence by using non-violent political resistance the collective thought of his society did not support his vision. Gandhi’s faith in his thoughts changed his environment and became an inspiration to many others including Dr. Martin Luther King and President Obama.

I am sure when Barack Obama first got the thought that he could create a change in the collective thought in America most did not believe that the collective thought of America could support the concept that one Black man could inspire a nation and the world.
You have the power to have what ever focus your mind on, but it takes faith in ones abilities to manifest ones thoughts into reality. We all have the ability but without understanding we have this ability we all to often misuse this ability.

The Power of Love
Urbanology 11/24/07

All things that exist in our world vibrate this universal law is why many scientists are now developing theories that agree with the spiritual concept that we are a part of everything and everything is a part of us.
The spiritual science movement considers thought to be a spiritual act that has the power to manifest into reality that in which one thinks about often and with great emotion.

When you consider the fact that all things in the visible and invisible world are vibrating but at different frequencies it is not difficult to understand how the vibration of your thought frequency can attract to you the visible and invisible frequencies that correspond to your thought. The important thing to remember about this is that we all do this, we attract to us what we think, and love is the most powerful vibration frequency that we have. You may ask why I say this, the answer is easy what you give you get.

The powerful frequency of unconditional love can allow a mother to heal a sore arm by just rubbing it, that same frequency can give that mother straight to pick up the front end of a car to save her child. There are many spiritual stories about the laying of hands where through love people are healed by touch. I learned about the power of the love frequency when I was tough the ancient Taoist healing energy system “Jung Do” in the mountains of Korea.

Jung Do masters use sound vibration and touch to open energy blockages to address stress and pain in people that they treat. A few years ago I became the first African American to be trained as a Jung Do master. Perhaps you have seen the Jung Do Ki Energy exhibits during Harlem Week or at health fairs. The point here is to be a true Jung Do ki energy master you most learn to tap into the vibrational frequency of unconditional love to help the person that you treat loved ones or strangers. I have learned from experience that love energy is a very powerful frequency.

Health Wealth and Love should always be in the foundations of your thoughts. Esther and Jerry Hicks in their book “The Law of Attraction” talk about the science of deliberate creation, which is when you create on purpose by thinking about what you want. They go on to say that it is best to create what you want because the law of creation works whether you are thinking of what you want or thinking of the lack of what you want. Most people are not aware of this and allow their environment to dictate their thoughts and emotions and health, wealth and love is not the focus of their thoughts all too often the lack of health, wealth and love is the focus of their thoughts and that is what they get. Think about it.
The Art of W.A.R.
Urbanology October 16, 2008

I first became interested in Sun Tzu’s ancient Chinese Classic, The Art of War, in 1968. I was in the United States Army stationed at Foot Hood Texas. This was a time when military intelligence was trying to understand how an army of peasant farmers was defeating the mighty US military forces in Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh’s (the founder of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam) famous answer to that question was: “We are defeating the mighty imperialist forces by using Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.” A whole new generation of Sun Tzu strategists was born in 68’.

For over two thousand years The Art of War has remained one of the most influential books of strategy in the world according to Harvard’s Thomas Cleary who, in my opinion, is the best translator of Chinese classics. The strategic concepts found in Sun Tzu’s work had a major influence on strategic military training and American business community.

I became a great admirer of the strategic concepts of this mysterious Taoist warrior-philosopher. One of its most valuable lessons is the importance of knowing oneself. Sun Tzu states: “If you know others and you know yourself you will win most of your battles. If you do not know others but know yourself you will win some and lose some. If you don’t know yourself and do not know others you will lose most of the time”. Understanding one’s self is not as easy as it sounds.

This my surprise you, but you are not who you think you are. In his book, A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle calls it the “The Illusory Self”. According to Tolle, most of us live in an illusory sense of self, a misperception of who we think we are. Albert Einstein called it “an optical illusion of consciousness”. Most of what you consider reality is only an illusion. Tolle goes on to say, “If you can recognize illusion as illusion it dissolves. Its survival depends on your mistaking it for reality.” My advice for both individual and organizational strategic management is to be clear about who you are, not who you think you are. Only then can you understand your true strengths and weaknesses. Sun Tzu teaches: “Making yourself invincible means knowing yourself; waiting for vulnerability in opponents means knowing others.”

When I was developing Urbanology Systems, my strategic multicultural marketing and management company, my son gave me the idea of using my name, William Anthony Rogers (WAR), as part of my strategic marketing plan, which developed into: Urbanology: The Art of W.A.R. I suggest if you have not had the opportunity to read Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, and you are in any type of competitive situation, either personal or organizational, it might be a good idea to pick up a book. I suggest that you look for Thomas Cleary’s translation of the text. If you are in business and you don’t understand this type of strategic thinking you can become very vulnerable to those who do.

Medical Marijuana
Tony Rogers

A bill that would legalize the use of medical marijuana is rapidly picking up bipartisan support in Albany and the New York City Council has passed a resolution expressing its support for a state medical marijuana bill. Experts believe that it is possible for the bill to be on the floor of the Assembly by the end of the year. A growing number of States have passed similar types of medical marijuana legislation including Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico, Maine, Michigan, California, Colorado, Hawaii and California

I join the growing numbers who consider the “Truth” to be a series of stories that lead to agreements that are then considered fact. When the stories change, the agreements change and what is considered fact and or the truth will also change. Think about the stories and agreements centered on America electing a Black president four years ago. The story and agreement that marijuana should not be considered safe as a medical option for life threatening health problems such as cancer is changing.

The use of Cannabis better know as marijuana (which is the Spanish name for the plants hemp fiber) became illegal in the United States in 1937 not because of a health concern, it was about economics. History shows that the 1937 law was passed due to an extensive propaganda campaign conducted by William Randolph Hearst and Lamont DuPont. Mr. Hearse was supplying most of America with paper made from wood pulp, at that time an eco-friendly concept of making paper from hemp threaten to cost the Hearse business millions. Lamont DuPont’s patented of making synthetic nylon from coal, would have also lost millions due to competition from national hemp clothing and other products.

It was never about health. In 1938 New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia appointed a committee of scientist to study the medical, sociological and psychological aspects of marihuana use in New York City. A detailed finding of this study was presented in 1944 under the title of “Marijuana Problem in the City of New York. Lester Grinspoon, M.D. and James B. Bakalar in their book “Marijuana the forbidden Medicine” suggest that the study was largely disregarded because it dispelled many of the myths that had been developed from the Reefer Madness propaganda campaign, the study also suggested a number of health benefits.

The current opposition to New States medical marijuana bill feel that marihuana is a harmful drug and passing such a bill would create more illegal use. This subject was debated last week on New York 1 by State Senators Martin Golden (R) Brooklyn and Thomas Duane (D) Manhattan.
Senator Duane stated that “research has shown marijuana to be effective in reducing nausea and vomiting in patients taking chemotherapy treatments”. It has also been proven effective in addressing depression, Glaucoma, Chronic pain and AIDS.

Studies have shown no proof of a dependency like drugs such as Cocaine and Amphetamines two drugs that U.S. Federal Law currently considers less harmful. The medical marijuana bill is structured to help very sick people with health options, these people are in most cases the only ones that have been deprived of this medical option. Is this issue focused on health or economics?
Jung Do: The Way of Ki

Ki Energy training has been a part of the Korean Taoist culture for centuries. Ki is a term used in Korea and Japan to describe vital Energy - the foundation of our existence. Many in the Western world are beginning to acknowledge the benefits of energy training and treatment systems such as Tai-Chi-Chuan, Chee-Gung, Acupuncture, and the Korean energy training and treatment system of Jung Do.

The Benefits of energy training and treatment systems such as Jung Do can be summarized in two words: balance and harmony. When the vital energy that flows within our body is balanced, harmony between the mind, body and spirit is realized. When this happens the body acquires the ability to heal itself.

The root cause of over 90 percent of all illness is stress. Stress creates energy blockages, and untreated energy blockages manifest as illness and disease. The Jung Do treatment and training system addresses stress by providing ways to release vital energy blockages. Jung Do masters use sound vibration, movement and meditation to bring balance and harmony between mind, body and spirit.

The components of a Jung Do Ki Energy treatment and training center are:

Jung Do masters use sound vibration and touch to open energy blockages in the body. The electromagnetic nature of human energy flows through interlocking energy channels. A Chunsu treatment - a form of acupuncture - improves the balance and flow of the body’s vital energy. This process reduces stress, thus giving the body the opportunity to self-heal.

Energy Movement Exercises
Jung Do training exercises are done in steps. The calming influence of each step improves the circulation of Vital Ki energy, which influences the central nervous system to promote mental tranquility. When our vital energy is balanced and in harmony, an improvement in the quality of everyday life is realized.

Vibrational Chanting
Research in Vibrational medicine has shown how sound has a healing effect on the human body, something that many cultures have known for centuries. Jung Do vibrational chanting assists the circulation of the body’s vital energy and blood flow. Jung Do chanting is always done before energy movement exercises.

Each Jung Do Ki energy exercise ends with meditation. This allows the body to balance the vital organs, energizing the brain to promote spiritual vitality and harmony.

Ancestor Training
Science is now researching the positive and negative effects of inherited ancestor energy on health, something many cultures have known for years.
Advanced Jung Do ancestor training provides the opportunity to address negative ancestor energy both mentally and physically.

When the mind, body and spirit are in balance a spiritual connection with the mind of the universe can be achieved. The source of true happiness can only be found from within, not in the material world - which is why happiness is elusive to those who seek it only in people, places and things.

For more information on the Jung Do Ki Energy treatment and training program call 646 329-6727 or email Jung Do master Tony Rogers at
