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

Actually I think that was George Harrison who said that: /"The proof of the pudding is in the eating."/

Maharishi liked to say: /"The difference is the same as between day and night. To remove the darkness, you simply turn on the light. Like that, you illuminate the darkness and let your Light shine."/

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
