Infusing positive energy on the earth

The following is a quote that my friend sent me on the effects of embracing peace and what effects it can have on our world. Perhaps if somehow this message can get to enough people then we can make positive changes in our world just by embracing peace.
Please read below and if you yourself are not able to find peace within and generate it out to our planet, but you know somebody that you think could, please pass this message along to them.

As I mentioned in The Divine Matrix, one of the most powerful examples of group feeling and belief affecting a broad geographic area was documented as a daring experiment during the war between Lebanon and Israel that began in 1982. It was during that time that researchers trained a group of people to "feel" peace in their bodies while believing that it was already present within them, rather than simply thinking about it in their minds or praying "for" it to occur. For this particular experiment, those involved used a form of meditation known as TM (Transcendental Meditation) to achieve that feeling.
At appointed times on specific days of the month, these people were positioned throughout the war-torn areas of the Middle East. During the window of time when they were feeling peace, terrorist activities ceased, the rate of crimes against people went down, the number of emergency room visits declined, and the incidence of traffic accidents dropped. When the participants' feelings changed, the statistics were reversed. This study confirmed the earlier findings: When a small percentage of population achieved peace within themselves, it was reflected in the world around them.
the experiments took into account the days of the week, holidays, and even lunar cycles: and the data was so consistent that the researchers were able to identify how many people are needed to share the experience of peace before its mirrored in their world. The number is the square root of one percent of the population. this formula produces figures that are smaller than we might expect. For example, in a city of one million people, the number is about 100. In a world of 6 billion, its just under 8,000. This calculation represents only the minimum needed to begin the process. The more people involved in feeling peace, the faster the effect is created. The study became known as the International Peace Project in the Middle East, and the results were eventually published in The Journal of Conflict Resolution in 1988."
This shows we can make a difference and peace does begin with me. 8,000 people feeling peace within themselves isn't that many! Isn't that exciting!
