How You Feel Affects the World

Okay, first things first. Understand that how you feel affects the world around you, both in a positive and in a negative way. "Smile and the whole world smiles with you." This is much more than just a cute old saying. It's actually true. Search and read about the "Maharishi Effect". When you have people in a city, meditating peace, it drops the crime statistics in that city. When the group meditation for peace stops, the crime statistics go right back up to where they were before. This study has been done several times and in different cities and the results are always the same. Deepak Chopra talks about the blood serotonin levels of the people that are near a large group of people meditating. The bloods levels change even in the people who did not participate in the meditation. Mother Teresa said it best when she said "God doesn't care how much you do. God cares how much love you do it with." She really understood this concept. If we are scurrying around, cranky, doing good works for others, it does not have as beneficial of an effect as if we did it with joy. It just doesn't. So for a start, really understand that you are always responsible for how you feel because it affects everyone around you, and in a much bigger way that you ever imagined! What's wonderful about this is that we can choose how we feel! Want to buy into that concept? Stay tuned. :o)
