What can we do to find inner peace and to bring peace into our daily life and our community? Many people say that the solution was meditation.
A widespread analogy for the human’s mind is the ocean, which consists of two parts: At the surface, there are high waves, sometimes even storms when our mind is full of thoughts, to-do-lists and emotions. However, on a deeper level of the sea everything is calm and untouched. This is the unconscious part of our mind which we cannot access in our busy daily life.
The people who engage in these practices, where the intention is to support healing at the collective level, what seems quite uncontroversial [about that] is that engaging in these practices has a positive effect on the participants themselves. Those people get transformed and uplifted and there’s a ripple effect through normal means; how they interact with their family and friends; what projects they’re inspired to do; how it affects their own creativity, and that ripples out into the world.
The strong version of the subtle activism hypothesis is the more radical idea that there could be something of a non-local effect where, especially if large numbers of people get together and create highly coherent fields of consciousness, this may have more mysterious uplifting effect that is felt subtly by people around. That’s a bigger conversation, but that’s something that we’re exploring. -David Nicol
