The belief that we change the world by medidating appears to come 
from the genesis of the TMO through Brahmananda Saraswati-Guru Dev 
who was Shiva manifest here on earth. All of the effects en masse 
TMers are supposed to have on the world can be traced to effects 
Shiva has on the world. So this transmission came from Shiva, 
through Guru Dev, to Maharishi and then reflected in the TMO. It is 
an accurate transmission, that then gets muddied up in the muddy 
awareness of the TMO. All of the TMO rides on the power of Guru 
Dev's coatails.

Every spiritual movement has its inspiration, its dedication, its 
transformation, and its transcendence. The TMO appears to be at its 
point of trasformation, a stage that many movements don't get 
through, because it calls for many of its adherents to awaken.
