When we meditate, or we remember God, our thoughts are holy, pure and unconditional, so we don't create anything bad, only holy vibrations and powerful blessings. So when these powerful blessings and thought power are generated around us and within our environment, then it's raised up. Then other people, who are holy and practicing, also generate the same thought, same blessing, same power. And like attracts like, and these attracting each other make it become a very powerful force which defeats all the evil, negative influence in this world. That's how the world will become purified and improved day by day. That's how we help the world without having to do charity work even, without having to go out and preach
The positive power generated by our spiritual practice can avert some of the disasters in the world. We still see disasters happen as if nothing has helped. But, if we did not practice spiritually, there would be even more disasters, enough to destroy the whole planet long ago.
We can benefit many sentient beings when we meditate; since our vibrations spread, we brighten the entire country and elevate the subconsciousness of the whole universe.
If all human beings are enlightened, the end of the world would never come.
Enlightenment is a must. Enlightenment means knowing the light within ourselves, EN-LIGHTENED. The light within us will guide every footstep in our life to the correct destination. The word of God, the sound, the vibration, the music of heaven will whisper to us all the wisdom in the universe, and what we can do in our daily lives until we fulfil our duty as the blessing givers of this Earth.
The problems in this world are not to be blamed on politicians, not to be blamed on the economic system of any country or any "-ism " of any nation but to be blamed on the ignorance of our own natures, that we do not know how great we are, that we do not know that we are contentment incarnated that we do not know that we are love personified. Therefore, enlightenment is a cure for all illnesses, for all worldly problems, for all wars, and is once and for all, finished!

Similarly, if a person has sufficient time to practice, he would be serene within and then, his serene attitude and atmosphere would further influence the people he sees, the neighbors and people around him. Upon seeing him, the people would be affected by his aura and become peaceful. They would think, "Oh! This is right! We ought to be peaceful and loving!" As the influence spreads out, many people would be affected. Therefore, our spiritual practice is truly beneficial. This is simply logical, nothing esoteric or beyond comprehension.
Many undesirable things happen in the world because the people are not happy and lacking love. For instance, we often read some remarks in the psychological books or in the newspapers: Most of the more troublesome and violently inclined persons are those mistreated or neglected in childhood. Without receiving any love, they grew up in a bad mood and developed a negative personality. This is the cause for most of them. Now, our meditation centers are providing places where people can rest and calm down. Sensing the tranquility, they know this place is safe. No one would annoy them, abuse them, so they become more peaceful and calm at heart. Subsequently, they are no longer afraid or nervous, or feeling dangerous. Besides, we can also teach them to communicate with their almighty power within themselves. Gradually, they realize their real greatness, and improve. They would definitely feel increasingly serene and peaceful. That was exactly what happened to you!
If we do not practice spiritually, even if we want to help the nation or the world, we still can not do it. Sometimes, I ask you to do work not because I want something, but to give you the opportunity for spiritual practice, to earn merits, and to help others in order to create the affinity to help, and in turn, be of greater help in the future.
Therefore, we have the choice to think positively. Everything that is beneficial to other people and ourselves at the right moment, that is positive. And everything that hurts you and hurts other people, that is negative. So every time we have to consider what is negative, and what is positive and that is how we fight. And when we always think positively, speak positively, and love people, and always act in a positive way, which means properly, in the right time and beneficial for ourselves and to other people, that is when we are siding with the positive force and the positive force has one more storehouse of power to overcome the negative energy in this world.
Being spiritual practitioners you can help a lot of people. Any people related to you are also related to me. Anyone related to me is related to the grand spiritual order. I am not working alone; I have many colleagues in heaven and on earth. We are connected like a network. Therefore, the relationship with one of us extends to the whole group. For example, some people might die in a traffic accident or by assassination, or by committing suicide. Yet, just because they have seen you once, have an acquaintance or relationship with you, or have heard the Master's name, they will be saved and taken to another sphere when they run into trouble.
Q. How can an enlightened being who is living in a society which is in conflict help to remove that conflict?
M. It is very difficult. We can only remove the conflicts within ourselves. If everyone does this, there is no more conflict to remove. Therefore, even though Jesus was so great and Buddha was so grand, they could not remove the conflicts within their own borders, and sometimes the disasters affected their own lives. It is because the majority of the people in the world were not at peace, were not enlightened. Therefore, enlightenment is the only requirement for any illness of this world, for any war or conflict, nothing else is necessary.
Nevertheless our fear is not the real fear. We can conquer it. That's the difference. And we know how to do it. We know how to conquer it. But we are made like that, so that we help in cleaning the planet. Every Quan Yin practitioner shares the responsibility of cleaning the planet in some degree or another.
