Dear Turquoiseb, in defense of the data it should be pointed out that the 
numbers of people in group meditation in Fairfield has recently dwindled to 
levels that were present at the nadir of TM in the mid- '00's . As the 
Invincible America Assembly was created in 2006 it had been noticed that the 
numbers were bottoming at a couple hundred. From there the numbers took off and 
the pundits were added to the total meditating here. The field effect was quite 
palpable powerful in collective spiritual practice. Recently with the demise of 
the Settle grant and the drying up of money otherwise both the numbers of 
meditators and pundits has diminished. Scientifically one can feel the 
difference in cause-and-effect spiritually.  That explains a lot.   JaiGuruDev,

 How cultists think, personified. An alternative sentence, formed by a sane 
person evaluating the same situation, might be:

 "The Pandit incident, the local suicide situation, and other problems clearly 
show that 'Group Program' does nothing at all."



 Subject: [FairfieldLife] FWD: A Time to Act, in Meditation
   JGD, a call to action.
 Mail from the communal inbox, this is one fit to galvanize (polarize) most 
everyone in all the FF communities...

 -Buck in FF

 Dear All,
 This letter is a private letter not on behalf of any organization, and is 
addressed only to practitioners of the TM-Sidhi program.
 JFAN's recent well-attended annual anti-cafo meeting had much anger and 
intensity. Several distinguished speakers repeatedly attacked “business as 
usual” to a roused and emotional audience. It is encouraging that 42% of the 
U.S. is party- independent, and frequent statements about all the good 
happening are likely true, and I appreciate and enjoy them, along with the 
growing silence and bliss in the spiritual population - natural and expected in 
an evolutionary process of the rise of Natural Law.
 But increasing intensity of partisan polemics and attack and a greatly 
increased barrage of election mailings show that a significant portion of 
America is on fire, with a rather disturbed collective consciousness.
 The greater the knowledge, the greater the responsibility. What can we do?
 Don't expect anyone else to do it. This is what responsibility means.
 4 Action Steps (any one or more of these 4)
 1. Create Group Program
 2. Speak 'Up'
 3. Get Involved in Local Government
 4. Do All Portions of Program
 1. Group Program: “ the most powerful means of transforming [and 
stabilizing] society that exists, or ever will exist.” - Maharishi
 Several facilities are available, or create your own with friends. Maharishi 
consistently favored both large hub facilities and small neighborhood programs. 
At least time program with the community schedule. Don't quit. Don't give up.
 2. Speaking Up  “Communication is the single most important factor in the 
success of an organization.” - Maharishi
 It is not up to leaders to do it all. It is up to each of us. Don't sweat the 
small stuff but if you feel that something is too far off, it is vital to 
communicate that respectfully (speak 'up') to appropriate people. If enough 
people bring up something, it is going to get attention. Nothing bad will 
happen. It is worth doing this.
 Nyaya (two way flow) and Nirukta (feed-back) require this for a healthy 
system. A social or organizational system cannot work properly without 
constructive feedback.
 Solutions Group: responsible for admin policy for the Super Radiance community
 Ideal Community Group: responsible for increasing participation in Super 
 Dome Committees: responsible specifically for the Domes
 Settle Grant Board: responsible for the Settle Grant
 Invincible America Department: implements Solution Group policy  (472-1212, 
Gate Ridge Building), IAD should be able to give you the member lists and 
contact info for these groups  A list of members of these groups was emailed to 
the whole Sidha community not long ago.
 3. Get Involved in Local Politics   (Please refer to Raja Raam's Appeal in the 
Dome last Spring)
 This is new, but emphatically requested by Raja Raam (Don't be passive, but 
very active to oppose and stop the grain elevator complex).
 A massive industrial presence, too close -  with pollution, noise, traffic, 
and financial issues -  potential of a chemical fertilizer plant, truck stop, 
and who knows what else, is a parody on a sustainable model community, 
notwithstanding statements by business thinking portrayed as community 
leadership. Plus Ever encroaching and massively proliferating cafo's.
 It is past time to stop rolling out the red carpet to big money (or a carpet 
being rolled out over us), whether it be Wal-Mart, the Lamson Woods dog park, 
U.S. Cellular, Neptune Smart Meter, Heartland Co-op, Monsanto, Cargill.
 The Pandit incident, the local suicide situation, and other problems clearly 
show that if not enough of us are participating in Group Program, we have to 
make up for it with direct local action.
 Almost all the candidates running in this election represent business as 
usual, although they may be friendly, nice people, and competent in the 
dysfunctional picture of the past. But they embody what has not been working. 
Two candidates running in this election are not speaking in terms of business 
as usual. Please find out who they are and vote for them.
 4. Do All Components of Our Program   “A casual attitude toward program brings 
casual results.” - Maharishi
 Many of us have stopped or substantially reduced key program components. Any 
undone component substantially reduces growth and impairs the holistic synergy 
and effectiveness of program. The result in the community and country is clear. 
 Don't quit. Don't let it go. The nation needs our help and will continue to 
need it.
 No temporary resolutions. 'Idea' meetings and discussions are secondary. It 
will be greatly to your advantage and the country's to decide to do one or more 
of the above 4 for the rest of your life, and do it. It will make a huge 
 Thank you very much for your time and attention.
 Jai Guru Dev,
