In a letter from a friend a mine who recently packed up her bags and went to Fairfield, Iowa to "meditate for peace" at the request of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Mediation Movement, she wrote, "When there is a family emergency, we change everything, and go."
When I read her letter, I could only nod my head in agreement.
For as long as I can remember, Maharishi has been talking about the importance of creating unity and peace by creating groups meditating together to stimulate what he calls "the unified field of pure consciousness."
Many of our HWNW readers know I have been interviewing Saints and Sages in both India and Nepal for over 3 years now. Almost every one of the Saints I interviewed had the same look of concern when I asked the question, "What do you feel about the present world situation?"
I recently attended Al Gore's movie An Inconvenient Truth and there again, the message was the same, different venue, same message. The world family is being challenged on all counts, and needs all of us to do whatever we can to create balance once again.
I love Maharishi's thinking. Create collective global coherence for the world through group meditation and the problems or challenges of the world will naturally find new solutions through the increase of coherence.
In a recent article to all of the meditators around the world, Dr. John Hagelin, world renowned quantum physicist and star of the phenomenally successful online transformational movie, The Secret wrote:
"For fifty years, Maharishi has talked at length to the world press and the public about how his Vedic technologies of consciousness can prevent wars, promote prosperity, and raise every nation to its full dignity in invincibility. Now Maharishi has stopped talking and is producing the effect."
Another article I found in the San Francisco Chronicle the other day about TM in schools truly inspired me:
"Transcendental Meditation is one part of a new three-part Terra Linda High School wellness program; the other parts involve encouraging students to eat more fruits and vegetables instead of refined and processed foods, and increasing physical education."
Practitioners of Transcendental Meditation use it as a way to improve mental and physical health.
According to Academy Award winning producer, David Lynch, a long time proponent of TM, "Students sit silently for 15-20 minutes twice a day with their eyes closed to settle their minds and experience different levels of thought until arriving at the source of their thoughts. It is not a religion or philosophy and practitioners do not change their lifestyles or experience any types of mind control.
"In today’s world of fear and uncertainty,” Lynch wrote on his foundation’s Web site, “every child should have one class period a day to dive within himself and experience the field of silence – bliss – the enormous reservoir of energy and intelligence that is deep within all of us. This is the way to save the coming generation.”
I don't know about you, but I'm inspired! Scientists like John Hagelin talk at length about the scientific studies published in referred journals which have shown the peace-creating results when groups of TM meditators get together. He'll also tell you about all the principles of quantum physics which explain this remarkable phenomenon.
For me, I just think, "Can you imagine a world where, when we have challenges, we all sit together meditating, and then ‘poof’ through our good vibrations, whatever challenges were facing us, magically disappear?!"
When I think of the droves of meditators who are packing it all up and descending upon Fairfield's cornfields to create massive waves of coherence for everyone in the world to enjoy I am proud.
This is what I call "aligning with your passions" and truly, "walking your talk."
I've decided in the next month to go visit my friends in Fairfield and join them in the Golden Domes, meditating to create coherence for our world family.
If you feel like joining me, you are invited. There's nothing like hanging out in a town where the intention by so many is to create permanent world peace!
Imagine a world filled with happy smiling faces. Welcome to Fairfield, Iowa.
