Fleetwood, this is one of the best explanations of the ME I've heard. Sorry I'm 
just now replying, busy here, not reading all posts. Have fun, everyone...

Ann, The Maharishi Effect, is not about belief. It is about a shift in 
identity, from me, to us. Not in some phony way, but an actual shift, in 
empathy, compassion, and even beyond that, sensing oneself, that 'finest 
feeling level, we are all familiar with, strengthening that, not just for me, 
but for everyone, everything, becoming a source of life giving and supporting 
energy, globally. That can never be accomplished within the obvious boundaries, 
of our individual minds and bodies . 

But, if we break down some of these self-imposed boundaries, of ourselves, 
again, not through belief, but through integrating experience, Being, then, 
this effect, of thousands of fliers (that being the sutra of greatest 
integration of Being), is truly one that unites us, as a global people, and 
begins to calm a rapidly changing world, in the direction of peace, and a 
better world. Not through belief, but by reaching a profound, and sustainable, 

Maharishi always operated like that, from the intro lecture, on - peace begins 
at home, and once that is established, go for the world. It is a very exciting 
time, with every possible institution, system, leader, and big idea, under the 
microscope of ubiquitous communication, encyclopedias in a thumbprint, and 
everyone on the Internet. All it takes is the right momentum, at the right 
time, encouragement of the other side of life, away from violence, and 

The genius of the Maharishi Effect, just as Maharishi accomplished with the TM 
technique, is to find the combination most efficient, in terms of the program 
for each individual, and their congregation, to effect world peace, in a 
mechanical way. There is no need for belief, or hope - 

As the Nike ad says, "Just Do It", and the rest follows. I promise.

You are being too kind - 

Actually, I thought I was being successfully rather sarcastic!

I thought it was a really good post, I gave it two stars.

Not too shabby, especially as I've got a stinking cold.

Maybe double-edged would be a better description than sarcastic.

I was serious though, even though I don't believe in it I think it's good that 
it's being tested again and with so many that it will leave us in no doubt.  I 
can't imagine what the TMO will do when they don't have a leg to stand on 
regarding the Maharishi Effect. I know they'll just carry on regardless but 
they should take heed that we'll always be able to point to this and say "what 
about...". Unless it turns out they are right of course, in which case it'll be 
humble pie for the sceptics unless we're all too enlightened to care!

Here is the thing, why isn't a meditation technique good enough to hang your 
hat on as a Movement? Why bother to start claiming all sorts of "Maharishi 
Effects" when all anyone really needs is a sound meditation technique? I don't 
know if TM is the greatest or bestest out there because I don't like sitting 
during my waking hours with my eyes closed when there is so much else to do and 
see so I simply don't scope out other techniques to compare. But the ME? I 
don't believe any of it for a minute. But why is the ME even necessary to put 
out there? If human beings are benefiting personally from a technique then the 
whole world should benefit due to the individuals becoming happier, calmer, 
more grounded.
