World events over the last several days have brought into focus the downward spiral of society into war and violence. Countries fighting countries, religions versus religions, drug cartels clashing with drug cartels, politician against politician and the list goes on.
The Law of Attraction tells us that what we think about we bring about. Thus the more we focus on the unrest and violence in the world around us the more of it we create. In addition, the Maharishi Effect provides us with scientific evidence that even a small group of individuals practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique can positively effect the surrounding population.

So, this time I am extending the Daily Challenge through the entire weekend.
Your challenge for the next 3 days is to spend 10-15 minutes each day meditating on “Peace”. Now, for this exercise I am speaking not of inner peace but external or global peace. Direct your meditation to thoughts, images and feelings of peaceful resolutions to conflicts around the world, in your community or in your personal life. Visualize what the outcome of this resolution looks like. How does the end to the conflict make you feel? How does it postiviely affect you and those around you? If you cannot “see” or “feel” a successful conclusion then simply make the word “Peace” your mantra.
We probably won’t change the world in 3 days but even a small shift in the collective conscious of the planet can have a major impact.
So, have a great and Peaceful weekend!
