The only way to bring about peace in the world is to bring about peace within yourself...
If you would like to see an end to hate, violence and war in the world then you need to start by bringing about an end to the hate, violence and war within yourself.
You see the violence that we see in the world is just an expression of the violence to be found within man. So all attempts to stop violence by changing the behaviours of others or ourselves is doomed to failure. Governments can legislate against certain behaviours but that does not stop the cause of the behaviour, which is to be found within the individual. Nations arm themselves in the name of peace and then attack other nations in the name of peace but the resultant behaviour is always violence.
As an individual, the world is too big for one person to change but if you heal the war within yourself then a number of amazing things begin to happen. The first is that you will create a sense of peace within yourself. And when you feel peaceful then you will naturally project this perception of peace onto the world. But something even more wonderful occurs. When you feel at peace then you create an energy field that can be sensed by others causing them to feel more at peace. This effect has been scientifically studied as is known as The Hundredth Monkey Effect, or morphogenic field theory.
In brief in 1952, on the island of Koshima in Japan, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but did not like the sand. Then one of the young monkeys learned to wash off the sand in a stream. She taught her mother how to do the same and slowly a few of the other adults learned the same behaviour. Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys had learned how to wash their potatoes but most of the adults were still eating dirty potatoes. Then when the number of monkeys washing their potatoes reached a certain figure, one day almost overnight all the monkeys washed the dirt from their potatoes. Even more surprising is that monkeys on other islands who had never been in contact with the monkeys on Koshima began to spontaneously wash their potatoes at the same time.
The same effect has been recorded by geneticists studying fruit fly in a laboratory. I don't remember the exact details but it is something as follows. In one laboratory in the USA a mutant gene was created that caused a change in eye colour and then spontaneously in other laboratories in the world where they studied the same fruit fly the same genetic mutation occurred.
Reading this we might be astounded but in reality everyday we are a part of the 100th Monkey Effect. Psychologists have a number of terms for it: group consciousness, collective consciousness and mob consciousness. Nazi Germany provides a very clear example of group consciousness. With repeated barrages of propaganda from Hitler to those of the lowest in intelligence, intelligent Germans also came under the influence of the group consciousness and participated in the death of nearly a million Jews. Of course this could never happen to you or me but who has never been to a sporting event and got carried away with the emotion? During an event like this the thinking and reasoning of the individual is subjugated to the emotions of the group. Fashion trends in music, clothing and consumer goods are other examples of group consciousness. We hear an individual saying that he dresses the way that he does because he is an individual but from the outside of the group we see hundreds of people all dressing the same way. So what we have is a rationalisation of the behaviour by the individual. In reality the individual lacks conscious awareness of his behaviour.
Any group can have a group consciousness but because the members are unconscious of their behaviour there can often be dire consequences. Consider the Christian crusades, Mohammedan Jihad's, burning of witches and Nazism. All of which were carried out by people with good intentions. In the 20th century we saw the fear of communism as a reason to wage a cold war. Now we have Mohammedan Jihad's and the war on terrorism with each group believing that they are right. Even though group consciousness is something that most people have little control over it can be used to help bring about peace in the world as an experiment showed in 1993 in Washington D.C. in USA.
The Transcendental Meditation (TM) organisation in USA went on national television to declare that they intended to organise a group of 4,000 meditators over an 8 week period. And they predicted that during that period the violent crime rate would decrease by 20%. What actually happened was that the violent crime rate dropped by 23%.
Unlike prayer in which the practitioner asks for a specific outcome, in meditation the 'aim' is to quieten the mind and bring about a state of inner silence. But meditation is paradoxical in that one does not meditate to create a sense of inner peace or to change the outer world. In fact it is the desire to bring about the outcome that is part of the problem. One just learns to watch the thoughts and in the process measurable changes occur in the brain.
The limbic system is the part of the brain that is responsible for fight or flight. It is involved in feelings of fear, anger, hate, anxiety and depression but the practice of meditation quietens down the limbic system and awakens the frontal areas of the brain which are responsible for creativity, happiness and joy. Meditation also creates new neural network pathways between the left and right hemisphere which results in a more integrated and balanced personality.
So if you genuinely want to help bring about peace in the world then the best thing that you can do is to learn how to meditate. __ © Author Abby Eagle
