We have learnt some things here by experience and by the best of science we know that we can be of great communal service meditating regularly and then of even greater service coming together to meditate in proximity. Brahmananda Saraswati urged in his time too to keep the company of saints, for good reasons.
Even newspaper opinion pages from today, paraphrasing: “There’s no sense complaining anymore. The hurricane is three days from landfall. The urgent thing (spiritual as we should see it) now is to avert the worst, minimize the damage, save the foundations, clear what mess there is, and move forward.” ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <archonan...@yahoo.com> wrote : Various friends who are TM teachers, and family where I live are attempting to meditate etc., according to the published schedule. I went to a group meditation yesterday. Group meditations are rare where I live. I do not however do the TM-Sidhi program which for me self-destructed decades ago and seems totally incompatible with my nervous system now. I have almost always liked to meditate alone except for family. According to the teacher that did the group check yesterday, there are a few people naturally like that. Group practice does not influence my experience at all, although interestingly, it did many, many years ago. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Meditators, Our time has come now to Mobilize for collective coherence.

A laying-down rest is not to be taken now but sit up and take watch in restful alertness and consolidate what gains we have made, secure our lines of supply, concentrate support of all our allies and all the laws of Nature in to our ranks.

One could construct that in the being of human spirituality there are certainly things we do in life that enhance spiritual well-being either individually or collectively and then other things we may do that degrade spiritual well-being. On these terms we could say there is that which is 'virtuous', enhancing spiritual well-being and then the spiritually 'sinful' which detract from it. Given what science is now correlating (or) some of what is our direct experience, for those who actually practice meditation and are experienced at it, this could well be said (constructed) that complacency in attending to meditation either individually or at the collective meditation is sinful in these terms. It could well be constructed that in the least, the complacent position on meditation is just some ignorance of the science or some lack of discipline in practice and experience as these manifest and not sinning necessarily like in the sense of the religious jurisdiction of a Sharia law or a Papal inquisition. We are just talking the spiritual here, like in the experience of transcendentalism here. But then, in this construction when it might come to further considering those who would be false apostates out on the internet actively denying the science of meditation and even working at derailing those evident good works of meditation and its collective practice theirs under this spiritual construction would certainly become a moral failing simple, above the complacent, a type of serious crime against humanity's spirituality more than just misdemeanor, but rising to that of felony crime against humanity. [ ] .. constructing the indictment. -JaiGuruYou ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <archonangel@...> wrote : I agree. "The term moral obligation has a number of meanings in moral philosophy, in religion, and in layman's terms. Generally speaking, when someone says of an act that it is a 'moral obligation,' they refer to a belief that the act is one prescribed by their set of values." People, even in the uniform world of a particular belief system have different values. Perhaps some of these we are born with, and some cultural, some indoctrinated. People who learn TM have a reason to learn, and even if they stick with the meditation, they may not share the values the TM movement holds dear, or believe everything the TM movement thinks they should. If consciousness is the ultimate reality, then it already permeates everything ("infinity at every point"), everything is in its grip so meditating should not have any wide ranging effect but would be local with the organism, a person might be calmer. The evidence of wide ranging effects of meditation is not very convincing, and personal belief and spiritual hype is not evidence of efficacy. Meditators and non-meditators hold widely divergent views. People who want Hillary for US President say it is a moral obligation to vote for her. The same for those who want Trump for President, a moral obligation to vote for him. And then there is Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, who also have supporters with different values. Meditation does not seem to alter these kinds of preferences, although the cultural environment of the TM movement might have an influence on some people, or their church and so on. Is it a moral obligation for you, whoever you are, to behave in the way I think you should? If you do, then by all means contact me and I will tell you what to do.

Let me apprise you, then: we intend, in spite of the rules of war, to attack this with meditation, this which appears nearly twice and a hundred times our strength, wherever we find it. The question is not of their numbers or the strength of their agitations or material position; all this by courage, by the skill of our methods, we will try to make good. This step we must ask, or everything is lost. We must beat back the chaos, the commotion of these times, or perish all of us before its batteries. So we read the case; so we will act in it. It is time to collectively rally to meditation for all that we hold dear. There is good in life. We must risk everything now. We ask your help to be with us now in a meditation of coherence. Come now. Come quickly and assemble. There is ample housing and stores of plenty here to keep you here. Certainly it is up to you to assemble. You might stay at home alone in a comfort of your room but never will you be able to do so great a thing as to assemble with this now. Come quickly as you can, come now to Fairfield, Iowa for the enhancement of a collective peace in meditation. Arrange your affairs quickly and come directly. In numbers gathered close it will be our great honor and privilege to be meditating together with you alongside. Come join in the collective practice of group meditation.
