In recent years, our world is experiencing unprecedented chaos in terms of the collective consciousness or the living environment. Moreover, the endless wars, financial recession, poverty, and segregation among human beings all impose severe burdens on our psychology. And thus, many of us tend to feel despaired, empty, and hopeless, suffering from depression or other chronic diseases, which has become an urgent issue that we have to cope with immediately.
According to some studies, meditation can trigger our inner love and compassion, which leads to a positive impact on our world. In summer, 1993, a well-known study conducted in Washington, a town noted for its high murder rate, reported that the murder rate of a single day dropped 25% in Washington when 4000 volunteers from over 100 countries meditated for that whole day. Based on quantum physics, our emotions radiate vibrations. Even subtle thoughts have vibrations. In one sense, the universe is an infinite net, where every being can influence one another. That is to say, we have to be fully responsible for what we are doing, since what we do matters to others and what is happening on earth matters to us too.
Meditation brings harmony and positive influence to the collective consciousness. When the positive impact gets stronger, the negative phenomena, such as crimes and violence, relatively dwindle. That’s why meditation is regarded as a rapid way to curb the society. We have to breathe every moment, and through meditation, we can regulate our breath and simultaneously integrate our inner world, retrieve our health as well as happiness, help the world become more peaceful, and last but not least, make our earth a better place to live on.
However, at the beginning phase of learning how to meditate, many people may distract easily and feel that they are not good enough for meditation. But, never give up! If that’s the case with you, you are advised to burn some good-quality incense and make the location for your meditation practice more stable and peaceful, which can help your brain waves slow down quickly and help you clam down. Then, you can gradually feel the advantages of meditation on your physiological, psychological, and spiritual status. In short, meditation with incense is truly an easy, natural, and effective way to make yourself and the world better!
