Couple of points you are choosing to believe whatever Feste tells you with no supporting evidence - I believe that Buck posted that the whole thing was THE topic of discussion the day of or the day after Hagelin sent out his "confidential" communique that was immediately put out all over the Movement by those very same Certified Governors to whom the letter was sent. If Buck is reporting accurately, then Feste is full of crap - who you gone believe? I think we are talking about two things here. I think Feste is saying (and Feste can correct me here) that no one he has spoken to in FF care about George's message from Maharishi from beyond the grave. I think Buck is speaking about something quite different. He is talking about the letter sent out to the Governors from Hagelin. I think the mere fact that Hagelin bothered to send a letter to a select group created interest when there may have been none if he hadn't sent the letter. I think the interest was more in the fact of the necessity in Hagelin's mind to send a letter than interest in what George has to say. But now, the more attention Hagelin and Jerry give to this "event" the more interest there will be in the whole thing. Great, it could be captivating entertainment - not only the messages themselves but, and even more so in my mind, all of the gyrations people are going through in advance of the actual lecture presentation. The other point is happily I don't care what these folks do - what they do doesn't make me happy or unhappy wither way. Anyone who is interested in Movement history which I am, is interested in this - its indicative of the very sort of Movement shit that has been happening for decades, its a debacle like so much Movement stuff has been, like Robin Carlsen's schtick. Here is where I am confused. What aspect of this is a "debacle"? The fact that Hagelin and Jerry are saying two different things, or are they? What can anyone really say about this that would be based on anything but conjecture until the poor man (George) has a chance to speak his mind. I mean, I don't believe he is communicating with the deceased MMY but I am only guessing here. For all I know he plays bridge with him every night and watches reruns of The Odd Couple as well. People were interested then and they are interested now - the thing that makes it so curious is why straight arrow TM'er Jerry Jarvis is on board with what is obviously ridiculous - is he doing it just to get back at the people who superseded him in Marshy's affection? Or has he gone round the bend like so many long term TM'ers? We will see. I never saw anything that Jerry said about this. Do you have a copy? Was it posted here somewhere? Feste doesn't like it because it is showing the Movement as it really is, just like the pundit riot and the naked greedy money grubbing of John Hagelin et al to solicit $100,000 of "donations" before they would tell the pundits to do yagya to "save" England from floods. Feste likes to rest cozy in an illusory memory of MIU and the Movement being something useful. In what way is this "showing the Movement as it really is"? I am not actually debating you here, I am just unclear what it is you find so bad that the Movement is doing in this case. From: "awoelflebater@...

I don't consider Feste a representation of a majority of movement TM'ers. When did I say that? How would I know that? Is there a single person who is a "representative of a majority of TM'ers"? One mistake that you tend to make, MJ, is to plop all those who practice TM into a single slot. Every meditator on the planet is an individual whether you want to believe that or not. There are those who live in FF, they would tend to be a tad more on the TM wagon simply because FF is a place where many have returned after having lived there before or are drawn to it because they feel like they will have something in common with the small community. But that aside, I asked Feste what other meditators in FF felt about all of this; after all, he does live there. He answered that nobody he has spoken to gives a crap. So, what is it exactly that you are arguing here? Should TM endorse this George fellow or should they ignore them or should they censure him? What would make you happy? If they censure him you might say they are closed minded and fearful. If they do nothing you might say they are weak and won't take a stand. If they endorse him you might mock them for being so gullible and stupid. Explain it to me.
