Maharishi always liked the expression, "The proof is in the pudding", and I 
love pudding!  

 An overcast, and cool day today. Went for a swim, wearing my rashguard, and 
then cooked a good breakfast - Now watching the turkey vultures begin to catch 
the updrafts, rising from the canyon, circling so efficiently, upwards. A 
beautiful world.

 This great teacher continues to form so much of the subject matter, here on 
FFL. All of us, spread around the globe, and yet, united, through our 
association with Maharishi, and the myriad knowledge he brought out.
 

 It is so easy to judge a global public figure. Some go at it, as an exercise 
in compensation, for their own failings, and others to confirm their own set of 
beliefs. I find it amazing, his reach and influence on all of us. Some of us 
got off the train early, perhaps fearful of the universal momentum that 
Maharishi engendered in each of us, and its ability to mechanically dissolve 
any boundaries.
  
 My wife has remarked before, that feelings come first, and the story follows. 
So it is, if we are always hungry for something, and grasping for whatever it 
may be. Easy, then, to turn on a public figure, meticulously examining 
Maharishi's life, even ten years after his passing, for any information, that 
may be used to point a finger, away from the lack, the gnawing, inside us, and 
towards him. This public figure, with global influence. Make Maharishi the 
target, not in any meaningful, or organized way, but simply to deal with the 
inner feelings of discontent. 
 

 There is nothing expressed here, about Maharishi, that has not already been 
examined, to death.  And yet, there are a few, who must persist, in their 
"critical, life changing, important and ever fresh", insults of the man and his 
work, lest they one day, turn such a critical eye on themselves. My question to 
them, is simply this, "Life is precious; WTF are you doing with yours?"
 

 I'll spend one of my very rare "BINGO" on this piece. Very well written and to 
the point !

 Fleetwood, thanks for this. It reminds me of a wonderful story of how a little 
girl with pen and paper came running up to Maharishi asking him for his 
autograph. He said, "I'll give you something more important." And he wrote one 
word on her paper: Enjoy
