As our cells multiply, the cell grows and breaks into two cells. Some Taoists believe the new cells take the energetic imprint of the original cell. Thus in meditation and in life, we want to grow virtues in the organs and in the cells that have the positive imprint of gratitude.
Focusing and growing virtues, positive emotions, and a higher vibration will cause the new cells to have these feelings infused in them. Science says that over a certain period of months or years, our body totally recreated itself as the cells multiplied. The new cells are made up of the things that you put into your body over that period of time.
Therefore we are the product of the thoughts, the food, and the environment that we subject ourselves to. You want to put positive thoughts, positive food, and positive emotions into your cells so that they multiply that vibration.
