If we want to live in a more loving world, we must be more loving people. For there is no other way to peace. The path to peace has been shared by many ancient philosophers, the key is inside each of us. When we are peaceful and loving, and share it through meditation, it assists all beings on our planet in becoming more happy, loving and peaceful.
The "Maharishi Effect," which occurs during synchronized meditation, has been studied in 33 countries, by over 250 independent research institutions and in over 600 studies. It has been shown to have positive effects on many social, political and economic areas in our world, including reduced acts of terrorism and crime.
Scientists believe this is due to a coherent resonance being created in the Unified Quantum Field by those meditating. How then does this spread to an entire group from one localized position? Think of a laser. It's coherent light is established by what is known in physics as the Field Effect.
The Field Effect's principle, according to The Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy is, "that it is not necessary to act individually on each individual constituent of a system, but that the system can be handled in one stroke at the collective level."
As physicist and speaker Gregg Braden has said, "Our beliefs have the power to change the flow of events in the universe-literally to interrupt and redirect time, matter and space, and then events that occur within them."
