Lawson, what I realized reading your reply is that I don't think of CC as 
enlightened! I guess it's all relative. As for what an enlightened person is 
like, meaning, someone in UC or BC, I think of Nisargadatta smoking and selling 
all those cigarettes and all I can say is: go figger!

    Well, research on TM enlightened people is still in its infancy.
If you take MMY's words at their most simple, he's saying that enlightened 
people are the most rigid people in teh world and can never change.
Seeing how stress tends to make people more rigid, and less stress tends to 
make them less rigid, I don't think that MMY's words are being interpreted 
exactly the way he meant them.
If he DID mean them the way everyone is hearing them, then perhaps he was wrong 
 -speaking about people living in isolated caves and monastic communities as 
though they are what everyone is like who is enlightened.
Unlike many hear, I don't believe that enlightened people are perfect. They are 
lower-stressed and therefore less likely to make mistakes due to being lower 
stress, but not some font of perfect knowledge that can never be challenged or 
corrected.

wgm, I heard from a TM teacher friend that Maharishi once said that if you have 
any habits you want to change, good to do so before CC. Because after CC, 
you'll simply witness them!

 Dr. Johnson says-"The TM technique allows your mind to easily and effortlessly 
settleinward, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the 
mostsilent and peaceful level of your own awareness—pure consciousness."

I say-Yes, this is *eventually* true, but in practice it takes many years of 
dedicated practice to achieve this (pure consciousness) and some say even 
lifetimes of practice.

So what MMY teaches is correct, only, the devil (time) is in the details which 
MMY conveniently left out or perhaps didn't know himself. He apparently thought 
after a few years of TM all of your vices would magically disappear and your 
didn't even have to try to get rid of them......what a joke!
