A lot of us are concerned about the state of the world at the moment and especially about the threats to peace. So here are three simple but effective meditative methods of helping humanity from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov:
Send thoughts of light to heads of state
If you want to help your country, you must touch the person in charge with thoughts of light, so that he or she may always be well inspired. You cannot help a whole country directly; it is too big. It is enough- and it is far easier- to help one person, just one. And this one person, in turn, will help everyone else, for much depends on the leader. If he or she can promote just laws in the areas of public health, housing, and education, the whole population will benefit, all bccause one person was well inspired.
See humanity as a single being
You think it is not possible to bring light and peace to all the people on earth, as there are so many of them! Of course, if you look at it like that, you’re right. But when you know certain methods, it becomes possible.
Try, for example, to imagine humanity as a single being. Yes, imagine the whole world as a being, next to you, and you are holding their hand and sending them lots of love. The tiny particles that spread out from your soul at that moment move off in all directions in space and spread to all human beings, inspiring in them the most generous and brotherly/sisterly thoughts and feelings. In this way, what you are doing for this being you are imagining has an effect on men and women all over the world. If there were hundreds, thousands, of us doing this exercise, a new breath, a divine breath, would pass through all creatures, and one day they too would feel inspired by an ideal of light and peace.
A collective exercise with light
Concentrate and imagine that you are all enveloped in a brilliant sheath of light that radiates with such splendour that our gathering forms an immense sun, a sun capable of lighting up the whole world. Each one of you should feel like a luminous sun, pulsing and shimmering with light and sending out rays that join and mingle with the light from all the others to form a single gigantic sun.
Then introduce the sun into your heart and mind and contemplate the multi-coloured rays flowing from it. While you are doing this exercise forget everything else and, all together, concentrate on radiating light for the whole world.
