feste37 writes: am so glad there is hope! Actually, the meeting in Phoenix Hall was quite good. I assume you did not go. There was scarcely a necktie in sight, and only a few Jai Guru Devs (which I suspect drive you crazy) were uttered. Hagelin even admitted that when he took over leadership of the movement, it was a "mess" regarding TM instruction. The fee was too high and no one was learning. Since then the fee has been lowered and initiations have gone up. It must be the first time in history that a TM movement leader has admitted that anything at all in the movement was "a mess." ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : Mail: To bring our community together again one of the challenges of getting an extended huge group meditation together is sustainability. We do have 1500 or more sidhas in town to accomplish that. The trick is getting them back. We had some success in getting some friends interested in coming back but need more of them to come, and we need help from the University. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : e-mail: We are supposed to be a family..

People who are contentious and by nature uneasy or impatient with process likely may go crazy having to listen in on the process. The folks who feel their big contribution is to tell why it won’t work? They get sidelined by effective people who volunteer working on things. Civics seems a skill set. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <salsunshineini...@gmail.com> wrote : They do need people and are starting the process to collaborate. Collaborate? How many times. have we heard this now? They’ve been having meetings like this for decades now, nearly every time something awful happens and they need to put on a false show of reassurance. You do know what the definition of insanity is, right, Doug? All they need is someone else in white up there and they’re all set for a scene straight out of the Leftovers.

So instead of insults, do you actually have anything of substance to contribute? I'm misinformed? So by all means, tell us what the reality is. All you have to do is look at the Women's Dome to know it has, or had, a big problem with mold. I was simply conceding that since I hadn't been inside in quite a while, I didn't have all the answers. Unlike you, apparently.

Mold and poor construction seem to follow the TMO like a bad case of the flu since they rarely take good care of things. Would love to know the condition of Barhydt pre-1973, was it a mess then? If not, it’s just one more building that they let go to ruin undoubtedly because they wanted a good excuse to get rid of it, maybe because it was positioned slightly awkwardly. Who knows. Beautiful old place, I would have paid the half mill. You know how the TMO pisses away $$?? Gold this and gold that, expensive leaflets and catalogues that nobody reads. But a beautiful old building, not to mention the ponds as well as potholes galore? The nicest parts of campus were the ones they got rid of first. Meanwhile the ghastly frats? As well as most of the so-called pods? Still there. It’s like they want the campus to be as ugly as possible, and they are succeeding. And Doug, you have got to be kidding. You know as well as I do it was all for show, people in white sitting looking down on everyone else while they pretend to care for about 10 minutes. But let others in that have been banned? Oh no, we won’t go that far! Elitism at its finest. Remember how “modern mental health” was going to be coming? How many young adult suicides have there been since that? And absolutely *nothing* has changed. Sal On Jun 23, 2017, at 5:44 PM, j_alexander_stanley@... mailto:j_alexander_stanley@...

When I was at MIU, I had to meditate on the rock-hard pews in that mold-filled shithole. It was full of mold because the roof leaked; they threw a bunch of money at the roof, and it didn't stay fixed because the foundation was crumbling. It was gonna cost around half a million dollars to fix the foundation, and it didn't make sense to spend that kind of money on a building that wasn't all that useful to the university. Plus, it was also Sthapatya Vedicly wonky. OMG!!! SATANIC HINDOOS WHO HATE JEEBUS DESTROYED A CHURCH!!!!! But, the old St. Mary's Catholic Church, which was built within 5 years of Barhydt Chapel and had similar severe structural issues, was also torn down. :::: crickets chirping :::: No one gave two shits that the Catholics tore down their own old church building. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@... mailto:dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Large meeting. A lot was said and listened to from both vantages, the stage and the crowd. Someone in the meeting observed this had the similar feeling as in community meetings of earlier days held on campus in the Barhydt Chapel, when so much was collaboratively done by so many. A radical group tore down the old Barhydt Chapel, may be this is an attempt to rebuild what was not replaced when the old Chapel was torn down. There was a sense of harmony and collaboration in this meeting, something to build on.. A lot of areas to consider. More meetings to follow after this week’s Commencement program and meetings of the Board of Trustees for the University. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@... mailto:dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : FW, Notes from 6-21-17 Communal Meeting: An incredibly powerful , coherent community meeting took place last night (Wed.) at Phoenix Rising Hall. Approximately 275 people filled the hall to overflowing, with dozens sitting in aisles and standing in the back, and a large group of M.U.M. Trustees in front, with Tom Stanley, VP of MUM Board of Trustees, MCing the meeting, and Dr. John Hagelin and Mayor Ed Malloy also responding to comments and suggestions from the floor . A fer a Welcome by Trustee Tom, Dr. Hagelin briefly summarized the just - finished spectacular Ukraine Peace Conference attended by over 500 VIP s - the highest stature gathering ever exposed to the Peace Solutions we practice, and an inspiring overview of our community history by Mayor Malloy. By far most of the meeting consisted of suggestions and comments from the floor, regarding the state of our IAA Sidha community. Interestingly, about two thirds of the suggestions and comments had to do with the IAA, Super Radiance, and the Domes. A powerful, tangible sense of re-awakening of our community spirit continued to build throughout the evening. Near the end of the meeting, Trustee Chris Wege gave a very stirring synopsis of what brought us here, holds us here, and the intense potential for growth and development that still exists here. . . in collaboration. Again and again, comments returned to supporting and growing the Invincible America Assembly, as though the group consciousness knew that the IAA (everyone who comes to Group Program) is the core of our community and M.U.M. The meeting was so successful, that was obvious, that more meetings will take place , with Trustee Tom Stanley announcing that.
