Energy Follows Thought:
How Can This Recognition Contribute to Planetary Healing?1 
By Danilo Parmegiani

  As a man changes his desires, so he changes himself; as he shifts his consciousness from one objective to another, so he alters himself, and this is true in all realms and states, higher or lower.

The effect of the transference of our conscious thinking state from a low objective to a high one produces a flow of energy of a vibratory quality equivalent to the higher objective.  This produces a change or a mutation in the vestures of the thinking entity, and they become transmuted and brought to a condition where they are adequate to the thought or desire of the man.  Carried to their conclusion, a transformation is produced, and the words of St. Paul become therefore clear:  "Be ye therefore transformed by the renewing of your mind."
Change your line of thought and you will change your nature.  Desire that which is true and right, pure and holy and your consciousness of these things will create out of the old a new vehicle or new man, an "instrument meet for use."2.

In the movie Avatar, where the director James Cameron had the brilliant idea to represent the connectivity among all living beings by showing a visible network of energy and light, one of the lines I enjoyed most was when the spiritual leader of the native tribe tells the human character: "let’s see if your insanity can be cured."   It is a strong statement, but a true one.

When we look at the past and see what has happened to all those who brought new ideas for the advancement of humanity, we always get surprised at how primitively humanity responded to simple truths and how we have reacted with the violence of crucifixion, fire, guillotine, etc.  Insane!

Fortunately, the collective consciousness evolves—slowly—but surely, it evolves.

Currently, we face strong challenges to overcome together as nations.  Our struggle today is to not be extinguished by our own technological adolescence and to create a sustainable way to live in peace.  This is why I always love to read the preamble of the Constitution of UNESCO, approved in 1945, that wisely states: "Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that defenses of Peace must be constructed."

Yes, it is important to spend time, efforts and money to find solutions for poverty, disarmament, protection of the environment, gender equality and many of the other pressing issues  we see daily discussed here at the UN.  However, it is essential to prioritize a new education system that will bring about a culture of peace, love, understanding, goodwill, cooperation, respect and justice, to the new generations to come.  

In the schools of the Legion of Good Will, the organization I represent here at the UN, we always emphasize in the "Ecumenical Citizen Pedagogy" that we need to link minds and hearts, learning to think with the heart and feel with the brain. 

Ecumenical spirituality is the key to empower children, youth and adults to reeducate themselves in order to work less in the fields of effects and focus more on the causes of all problems.  If brains and hearts are united at the first moment, everything else will transform itself. 

That's the paradigm shift we all aspire to achieve.  Meditation and/or prayer will help us humbly admit that the continuous process of getting a higher level of consciousness is in essence the great meaning of the so called "pursuit of Happiness."   And by engaging in these activities, we also contribute to improving our good energies and feelings that later will manifest themselves into good thoughts, ideas, words and actions.
May this be our collective vision for World Healing!  And, as we wholeheartedly strive towards this collective vision, let us be vigilant, remembering the words of that wise man, Voltaire, who reminded the people of his day that “every man is guilty of all the good he didn't do.”¨
