Really Beautiful comments and perspective. About Fairfield, Iowa ostensibly one would think so about the facility of the Dome and the meditating community but 35 years has been spent separating people from the movement and the meditation. There is a type of spiritual crisis here with the numbers of disenfranchised and then unwilling people to meditate under the movement’s Domes. There are yet a lot of meditators here and certainly there are a lot of old TM movement meditators who have come and gone. In this there is now a long history of a malaise with the Dome meditation, a hurt and disappointment that has become cultural in the meditating community here that retards the numbers of people in group meditation up there on campus.
This feeling of malaise in communal relationship with the movement becomes the particular challenge for the new administration coming into the office of the Presidency here. The President-elect here has not been inaugurated yet and in administration is only transitioning, evidently during this most difficult of times. The previous or outgoing administration has spent 35 years separating people from the ™ movement. A communal challenge here is in the the repatriation of whole classes of alumni refugees. This new administration within ™ takes ahold of the cultural reins here right smack in the middle of this climatic period. May All blessings and grace of the Unified Field be upon us now for the work in progress at hand, as you say. Quite evidently it is time for more meditation. -JaiGuruYou ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <olliesed...@yahoo.com> wrote : They may not be in the dome, but surely Fairfield, with its endless interest in all things spiritual, can pull together to stay on track. Sometimes it seems as if there are an awful lot of goldfish there, immersed in water, yet ever thirsty. I liked what Hagelin's announcement said about remaining in silence, unruffled. It is not to say being blind to increased tensions, but remaining unmoved, absorbing it all, and transforming it into bliss, success, evolution of consciousness. Maharishi spoke about that before he passed away - That the world can become a tumultuous place, and it continues as our duty to be steadfast. Not rigid, but as the flame that does not flicker in a windless place. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Om that we now had here But one ten thousand of those meditators That do no work to-day! ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Raja John Hagelin <development@... mailto:development@...> Date: Mon, Aug 8, 2016 at 2:25 PM Subject: Special Jyotish Alert from the Global Council of Jyotish Experts Office of the National Director August 8, 2016 Special Jyotish Alert from the Global Council of Jyotish Experts Dear Fairfield Sidhas and Governors, Maharishi often reminded us that the main purpose of Maharishi Jyotish is to see the clouds on the horizon so we may better prepare ourselves for upcoming challenges. On rare occasions, our international council of Jyotish experts issues a warning of a particularly dangerous time. Such a period is upon us. Building throughout this month of August, and culminating in the final week—including the solar eclipse on September 1—is a particularly dangerous time of deep divisions, strife, and the potential for terrorism and global violence. The October Surprise: A special coherence-creating course in Fairfield You may be aware that we are planning a major coherence-creating drive in Fairfield and across the nation during the peak of the election season, called The October Surprise. That major effort will involve all of us, and will have a much-needed unifying and harmonizing effect during the pivotal weeks of our election and immediately following. But this does not address the critical Jyotish window that lies immediately before us. For this, we will redouble our efforts this month to engage a powerful, protective National Yagya. But even more important, as Sidhas, we can create a powerful protective influence just by joining with other Sidhas in our Golden Domes and other community program facilities. We are very fortunate, in Fairfield, to have one of the largest creating-coherence groups in the entire world. And the research continues... An ever-expanding body of peer-reviewed, published research shows that group practice of the TM-Sidhi® program can profoundly reduce crime and negative tendencies across the nation. (The latest, and in some respects most remarkable, research on our Fairfield coherence-creating group was published just this February.) Let’s take advantage of this remarkable scientific reality to bring unity, harmony, and maximum support of Nature to this great country of ours—especially at this vulnerable time. While our group practice of the Sidhis is by far the most important thing we can do for our community and for our nation, there is more that we can do for ourselves and families. Suggestions during this delicate time from the Maharishi Jyotishis 1) Stay rested! Enjoy longer, deeper programs. 2) Don’t entertain negativity. Don’t get pulled off the Self. Don’t allow yourself to be drawn into any potentially divisive conversation. Avoid disharmony. Favor the positive. “Speak the Truth which is Sweet.” Keep the channels of communication open. 3) Enjoy nourishing, delicious, easily digestible food, especially leading up to the eclipse. (The eclipse won’t be visible in the US, which will mitigate its effects some.) That’s it! Let us hope that, by maintaining ourselves in joy and harmony, and with the power of large group program and Yagya, we will able to uplift our entire nation. We have done it before, time and again.
