Humans are more powerful beings than they realize.

Researchers at the University of Kassel in Witzenhausen, Germany (1997) showed that focused meditation can produce visible light from the heart. Yep. Light you can actually see.

This has been shown to occur "under certain conditions. The first condition is that the meditation technique must be heart-centered, not transcendent. Secondly, a specific person with an actual need must be identified as a receiver of the transmitted light. Under these conditions, a sustained light emission of 100,000 photons per second was measured, where only the background count of 20 photons per second was observed without meditation.

Light generation was eventually achieved by the combination of effective meditation technique and the intention of sending light to a specific patient in need of healing. The meditation technique used is called Heart Rhythm Meditation and is detailed in the book, Living from the Heart (by Puran Bair, Random House, 1998), authored by the meditator. Without healing intention, in spite of his best efforts using a variety of meditations he had mastered, the meditator was not able to generate consistent light emissions.

The amount of light emitted from his chest and reaching a photomultiplier directly in front, three feet away, was two orders of magnitude greater than what is required for visibility, and one order of magnitude less than what is required for reading with dark-adjusted eyes."

The full abstract is here.

What a world we might create with benevolent focused intention!

Meryl,

Thank you for this important piece. To have an opportunity to solve the world's problems, we need to balance and integrate the energy of the intuitive heart with that of the intellect.

This light is a hint.

In the King James Version of the English Bible the text reads: The light of the body is the eye: if. therefore thine eye be single, thy. whole body shall be full of light.

Hi Robert,

My sense goes something like this. Jesus often spoke at more than one level, simultaneously.

(Also, other than Biblical scholars, who study the cultural context in which he taught, we can't be sure of His meanings, but need to use our intuition).

So, at one level He is talking about the power of one-pointed concentration, which can be called one of the "factors of enlightenment."

At another level He is talking about intention. Is our allegiance with mammon or Living Spirit?

At still another level He is encouraging a one-pointed focus on Himself. This in the East is known as "guru-yoga" - devotion to a fully liberated being, which is a method that can free us.

In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus directs people to the light hidden within. He tells his disciples, If they say to you, "where did you come from?"...say to them, "We come from the light, the place where the light came into being by itself."
