Could the TM organization humble itself and even welcome Art Of Living to the front lines of the Mideast there to a larger peacemaking in collective meditation?

There are scholarly teachers, gurus who teach technique, and saints who give help and can directly transform people. With any one or in combination then what is the experience of charisma and where is the TMO now with charisma? What is charisma? One author talks about 'prophetic charisma', on a different continuum than what we may see as narcissism, or narcissistic personality or disorders. Pure charisma thus is personal and is based on face-to-face contact and feelings of trust, duty, and love on the part of the followers (Schweitzer 1984, 33). It is creative and revolutionary, for "in its pure form charisma . . . may be said to exist only in the process of originating" (Weber 1964, 364). At the other end of the continuum, routinized charisma describes what happens when a leader’s charisma is thinly dispersed throughout the followers who act in the leader’s name, typically after he has died. It may survive many generations and underlie a stable social order, but it is conservative and is not a force for social change (Miyahara 1983, 370). ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <olliesed...@yahoo.com> wrote : Nine years on, I'd exhale if I were them.:-) ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Ollie, yours seems a fair critique of the situation here by comparison. The True-believers of the TM meditating community are hopeful that Dr. Nader is that person though he is not too available to be experienced or quoted unless you have the money to be on courses with him. Those who have been with him seem to ‘like’ him. It remains to be more widely seen what the ‘nature’ of his charisma is in leadership going forward. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <olliesedwuz@...> wrote : True, the spectrum of consciousness available through TM and TMSP is complete, spanning the transcendental states of consciousness, and bringing one to Brahman. None of these other programs cover such a range, though they can be helpful in offering a new, partial perspective on the journey. The kicker with the TMO is there is no one living in Brahman heading the organization, so that these other programs are seen in opposition, and as threats, instead of seeing them as a partial picture, with the complete definition of the growth of consciousness always available through the techniques, and associated documents, and media of the TM program and TMSP. Without someone new at the top to put this into perspective, Maharishi's teachings are the only fallback, with the consequence of the TMO becoming less relevant and increasingly conservative. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Fairfield has a lot of active long going satsanga groups.
