We can create peace in our land

05:06 AM July 17, 2017

The United States has been operating two geostationary operational environmental satellites that monitor Earth’s magnetic field, mainly for the purpose of weather tracking. But in September 2001, scientists manning the satellites were surprised to see highly abnormal spikes in the usual range of readings from the magnetic field. When they overlaid the readings over the calendar of September, they found that the spikes occurred on Sept. 11, with the first big spike occurring 15 minutes after the first plane hit the first World Trade Center tower. That the spikes were caused by the outpouring of emotions focused on the disaster of Sept. 11, 2001, was an eye-opener for the scientists. It revealed the interconnectedness between human emotions and Earth’s magnetic field.

Prior to 9/11, however, scientists at Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory were already aware of the connection of human consciousness with Earth’s magnetic field. The outpouring of compassion for Princess Diana upon her death registered on PEAR’s 12 electronic devices called Random Event Generators (REGs) across the United States and Europe.

From PEAR, the Global Consciousness Project (GCP) was created in 1998 expressly to detect interactions of “global consciousness” with physical systems such as REGs. By 2012, after 14 years and 70 REGs located all over the world, the GCP had compiled over 400 independent replications to test the global consciousness hypothesis — and came up with odds against chance of 100 billion to one.

As early as 1960, though, the mystic Maharishi Mahesh Yogi predicted that if 1 percent of a given population practiced the transcendental meditation technique, measurable effects on the quality of life of the population would be produced. This has since been scientifically proven in several hundred studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals by the Transcendental Meditation-World Peace Group. One such study, a meditation experiment at the height of the war in Lebanon in the early 1980s, was published in Yale University’s Journal of Conflict Resolution. The results of the experiment was so astounding that Yale’s Journal called on other scientists to do more studies.

Indeed, over the next two years, seven other scientific collaborations repeated the study; in each and every one of the studies, there was an average 80-percent reduction in war deaths and war-related injuries in comparison to other days when there were no other groups in meditation. According to the international president of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace, Dr. John Hagelin, when the seven experiments are put together, the likelihood that the reduction in war was simply due to chance and not due to the meditating groups is one in 10 million, million, million.

Science has shown that everything, material or immaterial, including emotions, is of energy at different frequencies, and that like frequencies attract each other. The feelings of love and compassion, which are constructive energy, are of a much higher frequency than anger and hatred, which are destructive energy. Hence, all the trouble in our land, the war on terrorists linked to the Islamic State, the war on secessionist groups, on bandits, and on communists, the war on drugs — all these are fought using the frequency of violence, which simply attracts even more violence all around.

Would it not be beautiful if an interfaith group formed itself to lead such an effective peace effort in our beloved Philippines? It will be a tremendous display of unity of different faiths, in recognition of the fact that we are all connected
to the One, no matter what name each
faith may call the One, Creator of all. And when this results in peace, it will be the
ultimate blessing.
