various things that they can do and I have settled on having them all do
yajnas to give me healing hands since I am a chef and all, so thanks to
Lalita and Bhadrakali I will have hands of utter fearlessness and total

First off you get those techniques via practicing tantric siddhis.  But 
you would have to be a lot more stable than you appear to be on this 
list to get any good tantric to give you those techniques.

Oh God! This is what will happen when Maharishi dies. It will all go to
crap. Don't do anything that's not due east. Do you have to walk sideways to
always catch the sun? What about when the greenhouse effect makes every
longitude as hot as the south is today? Isn't it all relative? Unfortunately
Feng Shui tells us that we all have our own major element and directions.
It's not the same for everybody at all, and certain years have certain major
directions as well. So the true due east is not due east by year, person's
element, or anything really. For instance, I get rich through the south, and
as a Sri Vidya wanna be I have all paramnayas as my very own. If one wants
to worship Shiva Daksh or Daksh Kali then they face due south.  Also one gos

moon's nakshatra, to get shade under the corresponding tree  for total
health.

Maharishi Technology Corp. and Motorola Strike Joint Venture worth
$1.08 Billion US
by Global Good News staff writer

Global Good NewsTranslate This Article
Sunday

His Excellency Dr. Benjamin Feldman, esteemed Minister of Finance of
the Global country of World Peace announced today that Maharishi
Technology Corporation (MTC) of Germany and Motorola have concluded an
arrangement to manufacture and market the Maharishi Motorola Vedic
Vibration TelephoneR, a sophisticated telephone that will, amongst
other things, utilize Maharishi Vedic Vibration Ring TonesR to combat
the negative effects on brain physiology that may result from the use
of cell phones.

In addition to the ring tones-which will also be available for
purchase separately-the phone will utilize GPS positioning and compass
technology to calculate true east on the basis of the user's latitude
and longitude. The ring tones will increase and diminish in intensity
even after the call is answered, or when the phone is first activated
to make a call until the user is facing true east.

Dr. John Hagelin, Minister of Science and Technology of the Global
Country of World Peace explains, We have been blessed to have the
perfect knowledge of Ved in the Human Physiology through the great
discovery of His Majesty Raja Nader Ram, inspired by his Holiness
Maharishi Yogi, the world's foremost scientist of Consciousness. Now
that knowledge is being put to practical use the prevent possible
damage to the delicate physiology of the brain, before it
happens-Heyam dukham anagatam, avert the danger before it arises. But
it doesn't stop there. We have been so blessed with the perfect
knowledge of proper orientation through Maharishi Sthapatya Ved that
now, if you do have to use a cell phone, you can be sure to be facing
east to achieve maximum brainwave coherence while speaking so that
every thought, utterance and decision will be in total accord with
Natural Law. Maharishi has stressed the importance of proper
orientation for a long time, even telling people not to leave their
home to go to a place that is not properly oriented because their
thinking won't be clear. But now, with the Maharishi Motorola Vedic
Vibration Telephone it is possible to have proper orientation and
clear thinking even while talking on a cell phone.

The MMVVTR unit will cost $1008 US (plus monthly charges) with a three
year plan that includes a selection of wallpapers with beautiful
photos of Maharishi, Guru Dev, and the Devas, and seasonally and
personally adjusted Vedic Vibration Ring Tones so participants can
achieve the speediest evolution, rising rapidly to Unity
Consciousness. For those who do not have the MMVVT unit, Maharishi
Vedic Vibration Ring TonesR that can be used with any phone will be
available for $108 each.

Dr. Feldman concluded, With over six million practitioners around the
world, it will be very easy to have one million subscribers purchase
the phones and subscribe to the plan. This will bring everyone to the
very fastest pace of evolution and will generate 1.08 billion US in
revenue. One billion of that will be used by the Global Country of
World Peace to support the pandits who are the keepers of the great
wisdom of the Vedic Tradition, and who, through their daily
performance of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme
create peace, harmony and coherence for the whole world. The other .08
billion will go to Motorola in recognition of their contribution to
the development of this technology, and with those funds, they will
build a manufacturing plant for the Maharishi Vedic Vibration
Telephones in the Brahmastan of America, the World Capital of the
Global Country of World Peace in Kansas. All of our meditating family
should sign up immediately to

I thought it really could be a sign of the times. I half admired the idea of
taking something as bling and useless as ringtones and making millions from
it. That's more the right idea actually, and it would get the TMO to an
entirely new generation. Obviously TMO is for old hippies, but tomorrow
maybe Punditji will have Vedic ringtones or something. It bears
consideration. Or a conglomerate of today's Hindus or Buddhists could have
various spiritual tones under an umbrella company for such stuff. It bears
consideration.

Thanks Turq. My friend who forwarded it to me says he usually prefers
a belly laugh, or at least a knee-slap, to a deep bow, but  but he'll
take what he can get.

An indeed--he took all he could of my playing insipid (as distinct
from the good ones!) Mother Divine songs at him at full volume until
he finally came clean about the April Fool's joke. 

At first he tried to convince me he was operating from a secret draft
of the MTC soon-to-be-released catalogue that had other products too,
even showing me a beat-up and obviously (now that I think about it)
mock up of the document. Sheesh, it read like the J freakin' Pederman
catalogue. There were lots of other things there, but he decided to
use the phone bit.

For example, llundrub wouldn't have to worry about walking sideways to
face east with the BirkenStha shoe, with a layer of Maharishi Vedic
NanoTubesR built into the soles. The shoes not only conform to the
shape of your foot but also automatically align to true east, shifting
virtually instantaneously with every movement so no matter which way
you are facing you are always on a platform facing east. Maharishi
always said that TM makes us more feet on the ground and with the
BirkenStha our feet can be on the ground and be properly established
in correct orientation. No more walking sideways and getting a crick
in the neck from turning your head to talk to the person beside you.

That would be really great as my chiropractor bills have been
astronomical for the past couple of years. I was ready to put my
credit card down right away for that one and was extremely
disappointed when he finally broke and confessed it was all a joke.

By that point, I knew when I saw the Stha-port-pottieR for use on
vastu development construction sites that the whole thing was just a
sham. Damn! And the picture looked so cute with the kalash on top of
the gold-painted outhouse---oops excuse me, Pees Palace.

And finally---my friend insists that trin3ty is wrong, and he did not
use a template from some old story about a Muslim phone. It must be a
meme circulating in the collective consciousness. The originator of
the other story could have even gotten it from him, since time,
causality, and direction don't really exist and everyone knows that
everything worthwhile originates in the Vedas. (Poor guy, he's
actually still a bit in denial and has a hard time admitting it was a
joke, insisting that these things *could* be. Sigh.)

And oh yeah-thanks to card for the Finnish version of the April Fools
prank line! Most evocative. 

Have a great Sunday, everyone.

starting to have jinseks for the whole city. I am setting the peg and
calling it. If there is a rapture like situation on Earth for humans then it
will start right here where I am. Because the meek, and all that, and we are
certainly meek here. For this reason I have chosen to pour my money into
sponsoring jinseks for the residents of this city. If people live here they
simply deserve a better quality of life since we here live at God and
nature's whim. Right now. But in the future people will figure out ways of
working with nature, like building huge turbines which turn hurricanes into
an energy reserve. If George Bush and his enemies don't kill us all first.

talking about the 'macrocosmic' self referral nature of Brahm...or
Brahma the personal God, the purusha.

When we as jivas experience this self referral state we become the 1-0

 Dear Rick.
 
 Yeasterday I received the result from the Court Case between the 
TMO and the
 State in Norway regarding that the TMO did want the Monopoly of the 
words
 Transcendental Meditation and TM.
 
  
 
 I was a wittness on behalf of the State in Norway and I am happy to 
tell you
 that the TMO lost regarding the Monopoly of the words Transcendental
 meditation and won the Trademark of the words TM.
 
  
 
 The Court says that Transcendental Meditation is a description of a 
state of
 consciousness and knowbody can own a description. They also lost 
because the
 TMO has not been consistent in using the words Transcendental 
meditation.
 They have used TM-Technique - TM-program - Deep meditation. 
Maharishis
 Techniques in books and advertisements. The Court says also that it 
is a
 need to be free regarding to compete activities as i (Ingegerd) do -
 in the
 papers it is referred to my domene www.transcendentalmeditation.no 
and that
 I teach in free time - because I have an other full time job too. 
The TMO
 would not tell how many initiations they had done last year  - I 
was open
 about how many I have teached. The TMO made a point of the 
Agreement forms
 that the TM-Teachers has signed - so did I. The Court did not 
consider that.
 The Court made a point that MMY is a very old man - and after he 
die, who
 will be the owner of the TMO and all his techniques.
 
  
 
 The TMO tried to stop me from being a wittness - they wrote a 
letter to the
 Court in forhand of the Court Case and almost demanded the Court 
not to
 allow me to be a wittness. Not a smart thing to do - I think.
 
  
 
 In the Court Case - it was really a difference between Ole Markman 
(The
 lawyer of the TMO - Danish TM-Teacher - with no Carisma - pale and 
grey -
 talking the language of the TMO - telling that I (Ingegerd) do not 
keep the
 knowledge pure - not easy to understand for common people) and the 
Lawyer of
 the Norwegian Government, a very smart man.
 
  
 
 Some other Norwegian teachers of Transcendental meditation is happy 
too -
 they are very successfull in their teaching.
 
  
 
 You are free to use this as you like - send it to FFL if you want.

Hitler did know how to burn off some bad karma. And now we have him as the
litmus of megalomaniacal egotism, so we should thank Hitler for burning that
bridge of fascism for the whole world, at least in terms of acceptance of
its philosophy. On the other hand maybe we should thank him for paving hell
for those who also wish to follow him. Sure, hell may not be eternal as the
Xtians say, but it can very very hard to get out from. Because it's not so
much the first action which put you there which keeps you there but rather
the repetition which continues confirming your vow of negativity over and
over. That's the tough part. Or when one has made the vow to remain evil.
Yes, there are anti-buddhas. Very many of them and so many so that they have
named themselves 'legion.'  Well haha for them they hardly even have names,
the Beelzebubs are few, but many will be the full names of the saints. Very
very important for a spiritual person to make a vow to be with the
Bodhisattvas at this time for they have powerful protectors.  Such as Satan
himself. Are you with me Satan - 'Why yes Lhuny, whatever you say! See.

RE: [FairfieldLife] Re: Hog Confinements by Vedic City

2007-03-29 Thread llundrub
That's a good point, except that hog farmers are probably a pretty staid
bunch and unlikely to sell, not to mention farms themselves are very
expensive.



The TMO should just buy up the land around the MD and Pundit sites in 
VC -- land is only about a thousand an acre in Iowa, so it shouldn't 
cost more than several million -- even if they had to pay a premium 
to encourage hog lotters to build elsewhere -- to buy a couple miles 
of buffer around the properties (lots probably stink for what, 5 
miles (?), but a couple miles would certainly mitigate a lot of 
excrement-flavored air), and with all the hotels sold recently by the 
TMO, the money is available. The hog industry is just too powerful in 
Iowa, and the only people who really care about the issue are the 
unfortunate folks who live out in the twigs where the lots are built.

These kind of elaborations remind me to the predicitions of reincarnation of

basically agree to the commentator at the end of this endless monolog.

 

It seems as if there are also people in this list in order to fill it with all

 Questions  Answers
 
 Q. Is there any specific date for Maitreya's appearance?
 A. Most people imagine that world events (and the coming of a 
World 
 Teacher is certainly a world event) take place according to 
precise 
 dates. They imagine that all Hierarchical decisions are designed 
for 
 offensive to say that 
some 
 of the miracles are very amusing, like gems popping out from under 
 someone's big toe.
 A. I quite agree. When people come to know the Masters more 
closely 
 they will recognize that They are filled with the joy of life and 
 have an extraordinary and quick sense of humour. The inventiveness 
of 
 their imagination is one of the outstanding qualities of their 
 activity.  and so on and on


Lsoma; with all due respect; do you really want us to belive that 
you are communicating with archangels ? 
What if you are being manipulated by your own grandiose ego ?

 For the record. Human beings don't need to wait for anyone form up above to 
 save them or teach us how to love one another. You tell me I'm the one who is 
 egotistical. Maybe if you stop sucking on the nipple of Benjamin Creame you 
 could find out who you really are stop attacking those who disagree with your 
 chosen masters of pure love. You love to use the FFL forum to promote your 
 masters and then lead people to Benjamin Creams website to recruit them. FFL 
 should be a forum for discussion on relevant topics of spirituality. Try to 
 think outside of the Maitreya box that he is trying to build around you. If 
 you continue to judge me you might want to ask Benjamin Creame about me. Tell 
 him I am a volunteer from the fourth level

of the sixth dimension. Maybe he can open your mind up a bit. If not, I don't 
care about other peoples judgments regarding my spiritual journey. To be frank, 
I'm so tired of so many people following so many teachers and claiming to have 
the Avatar of the century. My message is clear as a teacher: Stop looking for 
someone else to do it for you. You have and always will have the power to 
change any situation that is manifesting in the world or in your personal life. 
Anyone or any organization claiming to have the power to change you without 
having any faith that you can stand on your own feet is taking your 
self-empowerment away from you. There is too much attention these days on who's 
Guru is going to save them and the world.

I think I've make my point. And this information is from me directly not an 
angel or guide or whatever. And, I never said that I communicate with seven 
dimensional masters or archangels as you call them. Some of the information I 
get is from other individuals who do soul transfrerence readings. They are 
recommended to me highly by close friends. Try to respond to some ot the 
information that I post instead of the need to point the finger at me so 
quickly that your mind remains closed to anyone elses story. Lsoma.

It is an interesting part of the vedic tradition, that the murti in atemple
must be purified in various ways.  One of the most enjoyable iscalled
abishekam.  It is, in its essence, a process of giving the murtia bath to
purify it so that the deity (Lakshmi in this case, seenabove) will happily
take residence in the temple and bless the devotees.

Soin that sense, the murti is seen as a container for the deity andthat
container must be properly maintained.  For example, each monthwhen the Moon
is in the nakshatra (vedic constellation) called UtaraPhalguni, Lakshmi
receives a bath (abishekam).  Mantras are chanted andwater, then milk,
buttermilk, yogurt curd, scented sandalwood paste,turmeric, rose water, and
other ingredients are poured over her.

2007-03-28 Thread llundrub

And no, I already indicated I didn't think I was
always the wronged party.  But I rarely actually
start fights.  I have done it every now and then,
but usually all I do is respond. If the attacks
were stopped, I wouldn't have the need to respond,
and I'd be far less motivated to start fights
myself, even though I do so rarely anyway.

-Well, see you admit to actually starting fights sometimes. I have never
started a fight with someone just for the sake of fighting. 

I really think Rick should kick you off because so much of your posting is
self absorbed garbage, amounting to little more than trolling. 

As for Askolnik. I have corresponded with him previously at times and he was
quite a pleasant person during those private posts.  However, karma works
adventitiously, and so for that reason there is no karma which has come
about through chance alone, though partial karmas might manifest seemingly
with no reason, but the real reason is the adventitiousness of supportive
circumstances. 

For instance, perhaps Askolnik is such a jerk that he would have slammed
anyone he felt deserved it. However, you Judy became his focus because you
adventitiously stepped into the pile of shit. To blame his Junkyard Dog
website on insanity or unfairness is itself unfair because you were there at
the right time, doing the right thing to piss him off at the right place and
so now you have a permanent record. One which many might say is undeserved,
though which many will say is at least partially justified. And if it's
justified at all, then because this is the web, and freedom of speech is the
basic tenet of its existence, well then, one can say that hyperbole and such
is fair game. If hyperbole it was.

In my experience on the net very few persons have ever had hate-sites set up
for them, so what made you so special?  My guess is that it's your fine
edged intellect which basically has just been used maliciously for many many
years now.

Your debating this issue will not do you justice. It will take many years
for you to earn back people's respect and trust. If you should start to ever
care what people really think about you. 

Because you are not earning kudos right now by always pointing fingers.
Given your previous disposition to troll everywhere you go, you simply
cannot get the respect that such an intelligent person usually could get. 

If you did have a change of heart in any real sense it would show. But I for
the life of me can't remember you ever being sorry for any of your actions
or words, ornevermind...I doubt you heard a word I said.

It is an interesting part of the vedic tradition, that the murti in atemple
must be purified in various ways.  One of the most enjoyable iscalled
abishekam.  It is, in its essence, a process of giving the murtia bath to
purify it so that the deity (Lakshmi in this case, seenabove) will happily
take residence in the temple and bless the devotees.

Soin that sense, the murti is seen as a container for the deity andthat
container must be properly maintained.  For example, each monthwhen the Moon
is in the nakshatra (vedic constellation) called UtaraPhalguni, Lakshmi
receives a bath (abishekam).  Mantras are chanted andwater, then milk,
buttermilk, yogurt curd, scented sandalwood paste,turmeric, rose water, and
other ingredients are poured over her.

PS, Swami Satyananda Saraswati of Devi Mandir - www.shreemaa.org also will
do yajnas for you, donation based, with no specific divodasha asked. His
rituals are always effective in my experience. 

 

And finally, www.monlam.org does Buddhist pujas and jinseks - fire rituals -
for rather cheap, but if one has a high desire to sponsor large rites then
www.zangdokpalri.com  is the place to do it. You will have to negotiate with
Moke - the secretary there for what you wish, but there's no power on Earth
equal to the power of the monks and nuns of a Dzogchen monastery, and from
experience the effects of such rituals are very different than those of the
Vedas. Herukas have power with no limits.  For benevolence. A Drakpo jinsek
is a thing to experience first hand as demons go screeching away in the
night. 

 

For those who have passed - monlam is the practice for them - that is - the
49 day ritual to the 100 peaceful and wrathful deities of the Bardo. It can
also be done while one is still alive for safe passage on the other side. 

 

Okay, ciao..

I don't want to start a war or anything, but let's look at this five post
limit thing contractually. No additional consideration was given for the new
rule, so essentially no new contract was made.  Since the rule was placed
after the present persons were already in place, they could not be said to
have joined the group with the rule, so thus no rule has ever been made.
Finally, I like this group, but it's just so many fucking electrons, and I'm
not attached to it. So frankly I don't give a flying fuck whether you all
kick me off or not.  I like you too Rick, and though this is your group, I
don't consider it you, so if you kick me off, I won't be angry at you. I
understand why the rule was made, but since it wasn't really intended for me
personally, I therefore again, don't feel the need to follow it. Lastly, I
think it's a stupid rule. Because five posts is just too few. Any
interesting conversation will have more than five posts.  Just because those
three main dipshits came from AMT and screwed everything up is no reason to
invent new laws. Lastly. I don't follow the law. In general, or in specific.
I do what is my nature. And if my nature doesn't fit in then cut me loose.
Further irony is all the bouncing posts and triple and quadruple reposts
from Yahoo itself as if to underscore the fact that limiting numbers of
posts is a bogus idea.  If I was mod I would play it as it is, as a fascist
dictatorship and I would kick whomever I felt off as soon as they made me
mad. I don't suffer fools, not gladly or otherwise. But I will give it a
break. Let me just add that I work 12 shifts a week and on my one day off if
I feel like doing something I'm going to goddamn well fucking do it. I don't
have time to play nice or by the rules.

My compassion takes the form of tough love sometimes. If I hated her or felt
nothing I would have ignored her. I suspect that the same is true of you.
And Vaj and others. Silence is noncaring. Interaction, for better or worse
shows willingness to change, or be changed through the contact, or at very
least, to collude in a thought or two! I just worry that for poor Judy there
will be no real transformation in this life into someone who might become a

 Compassion, dude. Were you ever so strung out on 
 heroin that you had to kick?
 
 That's what's going on. 
 
 She's so desperate to post and slam someone (her
 drug of choice) that she shoots her entire wad
 for the day before 10:00 a.m. in the morning.
 And then she sits there -- quivering, shaking,
 going through withdrawal, waiting till midnight
 Fairfield time so she can fix again. 
 
 It's really pretty sad, when you think about it.
 She's been harboring that anger and that resent-
 ment towards Rick for FOURTEEN HOURS now,
 waiting until midnight, when she can strike back 
 and be herself again.
 
 If you'd ever worked with addicts, you'd recog-
 nize the syndrome...

I'm following up on this post because I suspect
that some here will think that it's Just Another
Attack Against Judy. I don't think it is. I think 
that addiction is the *correct* metaphor to use
in her case.

It's not just the fourteen hours she sat stewing
over Rick cutting her off that's the issue here.
It's the OVER TWELVE YEARS she's been 
cultivating and feeding this drug habit of hers.

In just under two years Judy has made 8731 posts
to Fairfield Life. That is an average of over 13
posts per DAY, and constitutes 6.4% of the 
TOTAL number of posts made to this forum in 
its just-under-seven-year history.

Over on Google (Usenet), she made over 15,600 
posts in twelve years, and that's counting only 
one of her IDs. 

Addiction.

And now she's been forced into rehab. Is there
some *resistance* there? Well, duh.

Instead of 13 shots of heroin a day, she's been
limited to 5. Her body is going through withdrawal.
And her mind is going through terror, because if
she continues to push the envelope by ignoring
the posting limits here, she'll be placed under
moderation and *none* of her gotta defend TM and
TMers and Maharishi and above all my own reputation 
at all costs posts are going to get through.

And if that happens, there is nowhere for her to go.

She can't go back to alt.meditation.transcendental.
That would be too much of an admission of defeat
even for her. TM-Free has already caught on to her
act, so that's not really a viable forum for her,
either.

So yes, I think that addiction and withdrawal from
that addiction is *exactly* the right metaphor. And
as much as we'd like Fairfield Life to revert to
relative civility overnight, as Rick says that just
ain't gonna happen. 

Judy will continue to waste her five posts a day 
fighting imaginary battles against imaginary enemies
because she's got a HABIT, man. And she's been 
*forced* into rehab; she didn't check in of her
own volition. Even though the new policy is a Done
Deal, and almost everyone else here seems happy with
it, she'll keep bitching about it, and attacking Rick
for implementing it, and trying to pretend that what
she's bitching about is the ineffective nature of
the new policy, and that it doesn't really stop the
arguing and the trashing.

News flash -- most of the arguing and the trashing is 
coming from HER, and now everyone on Fairfield Life
can see that for themselves. That's not what she's
really upset about, although she'll keep claiming
that it is. What she's really upset about is that she's
been CUT OFF FROM HER SUPPLY. Rick shot her dealer.
The dude's lying dead in the street in a pool of 
blood. And Judy is panicking because she doesn't know
where her next fix is coming from.

So I really think some compassion is in order. She
*isn't* going to change, in my opinion. For as long
as she is allowed to remain on this forum she will
use it as heroin to feed her addiction. The nature
of HER posts will not change. It should be obvious
to everyone here at this point that she CAN'T change.

But we can. Treat her with the same compassion you
would show to a heroin addict. As Richard Williams
says, Don't feed it. Judy LIVES to defend herself
against attacks, real or imagined. Those attacks, 
and the high she gets from retaliating against them,
are her drug of choice. CUT HER OFF, for her

RE: [FairfieldLife] Re: Addiction, and compassion for it

2007-03-27 Thread llundrub
C'mon, not a person on Earth who reacts to Judy can be considered to blame
entirely, and Rick is also human, if not more so than most, and the fact
that he gives modship to others over himself shows he doesn't care to be in
the backseat taking a secondary driver role. He goes with what he feels to
be true. Judy deserves everything she gets. Including compassion, and just
as for all of us, we all deserve by virtue of being here, all the best that
we can have. My dissing her is in trying to increase her capacity for
happiness by pointing out her natural seeking within karma for happiness,
she as us will never find it. Nor will anyone ever agree with us, and with
such a Junkyard Dogness it's even close to impossible to feel much love, and
yet, somehow we do don't we? I bet even you Barry love Judy. Admit it!

Yes compassion is what is called for.  And avoid the piling on.  For 
the record, I thought Rick's comment about the designated driver was 
insensitive, and had a gloating quality about it.  I enjoy Judy at 
five posts a day.  In a measured dose, I think it's a great 
contribution.

Why get bent out of shape? Did you request this or the next war?  Did you
not protest some?  As I did?  Take comfort in knowing that those who play
are those who will pay. Or do you think life is so unfair that the
warmongers are going to slaughter us all without retribution?  I have faith.
It tells me this - to each their own.  The awesome thing about that is that
in one world some person can have great merit and wisdom, while another may
just have great power and wealth.  In each case, as one pays into it, it
gets to be more and more. Especially as it gets in relation to others who
are doing the opposite. Hence, a man with ten bucks can make millions later,
and a person with some wisdom can make much more later, until we are all
millionaires in our own currency. Only, wisdom can be taken with you when
you go, and wealth can't. So there's the rub aye?  Place your stock in
heaven instead of upon earth, and place your faith in the indestructible
instead of in man's measly and selfish whimsy. Each will get exactly what is
coming to them. This is salve for the wounds of the wise, and reason for the
powerful and rich to fear. For the wise are already naked, but those in
brocades and huge artifices will feel completely undone when they are
disrobed beforethemselves. It is not the judgement of others which will
canker them, but their own self judgement which will blister. Just as when
someone tells me I am wrong and it gets the trigger of my middle finger, but
when I feel I am wrong I can only blame myself. Life need not even present
poetic justice as the squelching of inner bliss through hate and fear is
itself its own punishment. I fear no judgement having done nothing wrong,
either in innocence or sophistry, but those who concoct huge mansions of
ratiocination will have to watch them crumble, and then watch them twitch
and burn. I work for Iranians, and I love them. They are the first kind
people I have ever worked for in my life in the food service business. I
feel so sorry for them, to have to watch this. Nevermind, I also am angered.

RE: [FairfieldLife] What could he have said or done?

2007-03-27 Thread llundrub
Nothing went wrong for Maharishi. He has been a total success. Even the
Rolling Stones lose fans with each new album. Consider their past hits, at
almost two albums a year for their whole career, and yet, now they cannot
get airplay. It's just the changing of the times and the fact of an
anachronism hanging onto previous glory. Nothing really has changed but the
audience and its appreciation. Moreover, even had the Stones kept following
previous hits with new versions it would not have gathered a return of the
old audience because the times change and people want to feel the cutting
edge. )(paragraph break ..!..)

The failure is more of MIU and Fairfield. If a failure it is. Many people
would not consider the superradiance numbers a standard or litmus for
success, but rather the daily quality of living, and I bet that in FF that
has developed for many, while diminishing for some. There is nothing
Maharishi could in fact do besides dissolve 'the band' and start over. Which
in fact he has tried to do over and over. Of course that also has its own
risks such as facing the obscurity of inconsistency. 

Maharishi and I would reckon most Hindu gurus are becoming a thing of the
past as we see how Hinduism when taken on by Westerners is a weak façade of
spirituality.  More nonsectarian gurus from India are now leading the way,
and seva has taken the place of spiritual selfishness of sitting in samadhi
for countless hours while ones children are running wild from lack of
quality attention. 

The reality is that FF and MIU and Maharishi have been a total success as
evidenced by the previous acolytes growing up and moving on. No parent will
consider themselves a success if their children reach adulthood and still
hang on to their mother's apron. The children must become responsible and
leave the nest.  That's what has happened. And the especially recalcitrant
needed a hard kick out the door. 

Finally those chicks who cannot fly buy the whole nest egg and stay near
Momma Hen. The only problem as I see it is that patent absurdity of having
the Movement leaders as spiritual arbiters. But my disbelief is not
anothers. And some will follow Bevan and Haeglen into hell. But then some
also will follow Bush into hell, or the Pope, or even the neighborhood crack
dealer. There's no accounting for sense. And when it comes down to it, a
person's litmus for success is not shared by another. 

Success to me is the fact that I escaped the Movement and found myself in my
own way and my own time. Success for me is having my health to sit by my
wife and watch TV during a few hours off from work, where I call the shots
and get respect for being an artist. Maharishi, FF, MUM, and all the
spiritual mentors on Earth have not a whit to do with my rating of success. 

Ranking numbers in the dome is merely spiritual materialism for people who
have no finer senses with which to peruse the spirit planes for themselves.
Rather they need, as always, someone else to tell them what is right and
wrong, what is success and what is failure.  The fact that one recalcitrant
person moved to FF at this late date to attend the domes still shows pulling
power. Which should not be discounted. Success is still forthcoming. Failure
is a merely personal lack of understanding.

What could Maharishi have done or said to bring meditators back to

Is interesting that even with even with paying people to meditate, 
bringing by the hundreds hire-ling student pandits from India, giving 
the sidhi's away in exchange for practicing in the domes, they can 
not get the numbers in the dome.

 According to the plan I (Raja W.) have mentioned before, another 
500 Pandits will be arriving over the next few months, bringing the 
total here to 1,000. This number of Pandits will assure that there 
will always be more than the Super Radiance number of 1732 Yogic

Mayor and 'Raja' Wynne says it and confirms it all right there.

Strong commentary on the predicament of Maharishi at the end.  Where

Lurk, I think you've lost the context here.  What
I wrote that you quote wasn't about defending the
faith.

But naturally Barry chooses to pick up on the non
sequitur, since it gives him an opportunity to
do some more bashing:
 
 The more I encounter this defender of the faith
 mentality, not just on FFL but in Christian groups
 and Buddhist groups and Islamic groups and even in
 political groups and Microsoft groups and Oracle 
 groups, the more I am reminded of Rene Descartes.

 And sadly, the more attacks that the small s self
 perceives, and the more it defends itself against
 them and feels important for having done so, the more 
 unhappy it gets.
 
 As opposed to realizing that there is nothing to be
 attacked, and nothing to defend, and nothing to
 defend *against*, and that letting go of the notion 
 of self is the thing that leads to the ultimate 
 happiness of Self.

And therefore, according to Barry, it's completely
unnecessary to go to the trouble to be fair, honest,
and sincere.

But we knew that about his perspective already.

My opinion is that we all need to thank the mods for their forbearance and
patience. And slamming Rick isn't the way to win the local popularity
contest. My opinion is that this five post limit is here just because of
Judy and therefore she shouldn't really keep pushing.  There's more at stake
than just ones rep on  the net, such as think of all those sidhas thinking
negatively about you Judy for so many years. Kind of makes one wonder what
sort of final karma is the result. But my guess is that is won't be neutral
or positive. At least in relation to your material well being. On the other
hand, many people have probably wished liberation upon you, and so maybe you
should thank your enemies, Judy, as they probably want your liberation more
than you even do. I just fucked my five posts plucking at a thorn. Oh what a
lack of wisdom. See you all tomorrow.

Yup, this is definitely mean-spirited, the
accompanying professions of liking and respect
notwithstanding. To insult someone, and then
say something positive, doesn't really do
anything to mitigate the insult.  But it does
make one wonder how sincere the positive part is.

Again, I'm convinced that the most effective way
to get this forum under control is to crack down
on the mean-spirited comments and pokes and
insults and jibes and baiting and attacks and
trashing. I think we ought to try that first,
and see how much difference it makes. If there
are still too many posts, then we can go back to
limiting them.

What will really make FFL more fun is eliminating
the poisonous atmosphere that has been allowed to
develop--and even encouraged in some quarters.

Subject: [FairfieldLife] The Sunday Market at Anduze


Sunday mornings I have kind of a routine. I know that 
it's very un-Castaneda-like to *have* a routine, but 
there you jolly well are, aren't you. I like it, so 
it's become a routine for me, a weekly ritual that I 
look forward to. I get up, shower, meditate, and then 
drive 20 kilometers or so to the marché at Anduze. 

It's a fairly big one, filling the entire parking lot 
of the Super U and the adjacent empty field next to 
it and, unlike many of the other marchés in the area, 
it's not overly commercialized. Some of the marchés 
have the same stands every week, professional retailers 
who have figured out that they don't need to pay for 
a storefront in order to make a living. But at Anduze 
it's an equal mix of marché and vide grenier (literally 
empty the attic), and so there's almost always 
something there to surprise you. I like surprises. I 
spend some time wandering around the stalls, seeing 
whether anything attracts me enough to buy it, and 
then I walk into town and sit at my favorite café, 
drinking coffee and cognac and writing shit like 
this on my laptop for as long as its little battery
holds out.

This morning the marché reminded me of the New Fair-
field Life, and the reminder made me smile. I 
wandered past dozens of stands, each one a reflection 
of the consciousness of the person who had set it up, 
each one enticing passersby to stop and browse and 
perhaps share a conversation, even if they're not 
interested in buying anything that's on sale there. 

This morning, possibly as a result of the discipline 
I've learned on the New FFL, I was able to get all 
the way through the marché without doing much damage 
to my wallet. From one stand I bought some incense, 
and at another I bought two DVDS -- Milos Forman's 
Amadeus and Claude Lelouch's marvelous Toute une vie 
(What Now My Love, in its English release). The latter 
was quite a find; it's fairly rare and I've been 
searching for it for several years now, and it only 
cost me nine Euros, new.

There were two other items I considered buying, and 
I'm still sitting here at the café thinking about them, 
so they obviously  have their samskaric hooks into me, 
and there is some possibility that I might still go 
back and buy them. The first was a stuffed badger. Yes, 
I did say stuffed badger. You're probably waiting for 
the punchline, or for an explanation of what stuffed 
badger is a euphemism for in French. No such luck. It 
was a stuffed badger. With its mouth open, snarling, 
and with bright red blood painted dripping from its 
teeth and jaws. I saw it and just stood there shell-
shocked, wondering first who would have *done* this, 
and second *why*. It was SO ugly that the Zaphod 
(Anything for a weird life.) Beebelbrox in me just 
had to have it. And then near it, in an adjacent stall, 
I saw an antique Catholic prayer stand from a church, 
on which the believer is supposed to kneel, place his 
or her hands on the raised rest provided for such things, 
and pray. In a flash my mind had bought both objects, 
placed the badger ON the prayer stand, as if in deep 
communion with God, and installed the whole artwork in 
my living room as a conversation piece. I've definitely 
been spending far too much time with my neighbor R. Crumb.

Fortunately -- or not, depending on one's point of view -- 
this artistic epiphany was followed shortly afterwards 
by sanity, and both the badger and the prayer stand 
are still in their stalls back at the marché. But I 
have to walk past them again on my way back to my car, 
so weirdness may still happen this Sunday morning.  :-)

Anyway, the part of this coffee-and-cognac tale that 
relates to Fairfield Life is the marché itself. I LIKE 
the New FFL. I think it's just bloody WONDERFUL. The 
five-post limit has introduced an element of structure 
and discipline to a forum -- and a membership -- that 
were IMO badly in need of both. And I happily include 
myself in that generalized opinion.

Before the New FFL, I was in the situation of wander-
ing through a marché with my pockets bulging with cash, 
knowing that I could stop at any stand, discuss the 
merchandise on sale there, and buy anything that caught 
my eye. I was never placed in the position of thinking, 
Can I afford this? Do I really want to spend my time 
and my energy here? Now I have those thoughts when I 
read Fairfield Life, and I think that's a Good Thing.

Part of me still longs to reply to a couple of dozen 
posts a day, especially now that some olde favorite 
posters like Shemp have rejoined us. But I don't. I

that was such an incredibly offensive post, since
you seem puzzled that I didn't receive it well.

First, you appear to think it's rare that I allow
my inner child to make a post here.

And you go on in your response to Lurk to suggest

For your information, my inner child has always
felt entirely secure to come out whenever she had
something she wanted to say, despite the often

Then you presumed to ask my critics to go easy

It's hard to imagine anything more insultingly,
overtly condescending.

Finally, and worst of all, you made your judgment
of me crystal clear: *I'm* the one here who speaks
harshly--apparently, as far as you're concerned,
without any provocation other than that of what you
assume to be my emotional wounds.

You did not even pretend to acknowledge my view of
the situation--which is more than amply documented
in the traffic--that I've been the *target* of
gratuitously harsh speech since before I even
arrived here. When I speak harshly, in the vast
majority of cases, it's in *response* to that speech;
I rarely initiate it.

(And again, for your information, I'm not so 
insecure as to be wounded by harsh speech; I'm
just astonished that it's tolerated in a
purportedly spiritual forum.)

But you persist in your view that I am the sinner,
not the sinned against, as if that were such a
well-established fact that you don't need even to
pay lip service to my perspective.

And then you proceeded to assure me that you were
not being either condescending or judgmental.

Whatever you told yourself your intentions were in
making that post, and whatever merit your point has
in general terms, if you're unable to recognize the
thinly veiled hostility toward me in the way you
worded it, you're very sadly deficient in self-
knowledge.

I have always found overtly expressed hostility,
even when it's gratuitous, far less repellent and
contemptible than this kind of smarmy faux
compassion.

My harsh speech in this response does not come
from emotional wounds. I have them, just like
everyone else, as you point out. But they simply
don't manifest in this kind of environment; it
isn't what they're sensitive to. They're smarter
than that, so to speak.

This speech comes from a place in me that has
always held fairness, honesty, and sincerity as
the highest values. I was raised with those
values; they were how my parents treated me, and
I was taught that I should stand up for those
values, for others as well as myself, whenever I
saw them being trashed.

Goodness knows I have my faults, but I do my
level best to live up to that teaching, at least.
And that's what I'm doing in this post.

Oh don't get me wrong, I felt glorious at that time like I was part of
something so very very important. I think more important than the specific
practice or anything else was the bringing together of so many people all
with the high intent of helping humanity. That alone was priceless. And the
'can do' attitude about raising the world's consciousness is tremendously
empowering at any rate.

I'm not sure they ever had the exact number, but it was estimated

It was the longest that Maharishi had ever stayed in Fairfield.
He came there in the beginning of December, 1983, and left on January 
16th, 1984...(That night my son, Jeff was born-very auspicious!)
For me it just seemed all overwhelming at the time- My wife and I had 
a business going at the same time.
It's hard to really judge how effective the course was, because in my 
mind, it seems more important to have a stable community to have a 
greater effect, than just a quick flash in the pan.
Besides, there is always a kind of collapse, when the course ends, in 
some of the studies, it appears that there can be a spike in chaos, 
when the course ends.

There's no point flogging this horse to death. Saying something is the
'best' is merely an appeal to the ego, and a sales pitch.  Obviously we all
would like to think we were the best and we will be more content knowing we
have 'the best.' There's not really much that's very deep than needs to read
into this.  I don't think most megalomaniacs use 'the best' as a sales
pitch, for them, it's more like 'the only.'

Maybe because he was the one who happened to come your way at the right

And I believe there's a big difference between thinking something might be

Pandit Llundrub - Some of my messages are interesting, if I may say so
myself. I've been trashed real good by Judy, the two Barry's, Mr.
Perino, and Mr. Manning, not to mention Lon P. Stacks and the Asshole
Nick, but I don't take offense. In fact, I welcome the trashing
because that let's me get my own karma under control. 

It's a form of tapas and I take great pride in my siddhi
accomplishments. You see, I belong to an obscure sect in India that
prides itself on saying things in public that gets one trashed - it's
a sadhana meant to help other people get rid of their own karma. 

So, I don't resent the trashing, I thank them for it. Some people just
feel better when they have someone to talk to. Apparently you and I
are on the same path!

This fellow is at the Center of the Universe - still on the program,
meditating regularly during all the International meditating times and
avidly flying and rounding every weekend. I'm about a mile from the
Maharishi Golden Dome at Radience, Texas, the TM Ideal Village, home
of the Superradience Program. 

On a clear day the view from up here is great - I can see all the way
to Barsana Dham, the  seat of the Rasavada and Srimati Radharani, one
of the largest Hindu temples outside Mother India, where the Swami
Prakashanand Saraswati sits and gives discourses. The Swami is one of
the last direct disciples of our Guru Dev, who are still living. 

My words are recorded more to remind myself of my own earthliness,
rather than to convey and inform. Up here, words almost fail in their
ability to describe the sense of order and coherence that I sometimes
feel, an almost transcendental awareness of calm. 

Here I sit, up on Joe Friday Mountain, my laptop by my side, fully
convinced that I have realized my very own personal zone of tranquility. 

Anyway, if you ever get out to my place, we will have plenty of time
to worship the Great Wheel of Time, Kala Chakra, and just sit on the
porch and watch the moon climb over the mountain. 

Otherwise, you can be dialoging with this fellow on Usenet. However, I
must warn you - don't feed it.

Nishkrama shanti mantras can be used by all wholesale and sundry, so the
various traditional commitments of upasakas don't so much apply.  If one
then desires a specific result where some other mantra is needed one must
abide by the vow of the sadhana. In the case of TMO all more purposeful
rituals besides the basic shanti techniques are controlled by the
traditional Brahmans who will know what to do.Since this is the Vedic
Tradition. Otherwise all the broken vows of the millions of TMers would have
crashed the technique for everyone else. But that hasn't happened. Nishkrama
shanti. That's why. Doesn't matter so much whether it's of Siva or Shakti,
but more importantly what the practice commitment is. In this case 20 x 2.
If one follows that practice vow they should end up with nonkarmic
peacefulness.

Using the Science of Creative Communications (SCC) I have devised a 
method of overcoming the 5 post limit on FFL.  Just simply put all your 
new posts and replies into one post and at different times throughout 
the day post an update. :)

I wanted to reply to Turq's A Speculation of the Genesis of TM
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/message/136076

I highly doubt that effort was the reason MMY invented TM.  For 
centuries there has been meditation techniques for the masses and 
meditation techniques for the disciples.  The latter often involves a 
lot more than just meditation but performing rituals and tapas (more in 
the case of right hand traditions).   But these things were considered 
impractical for the public and simple meditation techniques were given 
them.  Probably about every monk at the ashram knew how to teach a 
civilian meditation as there is not that much special or unique about 
it.  It traditionally takes a teacher who has been given a guru mantra 
so that they have enough shakti to energize a mantra they give someone 
(without the need of performing a puja beforehand).  Many Indian 
civilians even know how this is done but also that it must be given to 
them by a guru or priest so it is energized.

Why MMY diverged from the traditional techniques the Shankaracharya's 
gave the masses is the great mystery.  Maybe it is as Rick once 
suggested to make the technique unique.  Bija mantras are used in longer 
mantras to give them more power.  They are seldom used by themselves.

However let me make clear I do not want to cast doubt into anyone's TM 
practice.  If it is working for you, fine.  If not there are other 
mantra meditation techniques available that may work better for you.  
One should proceed with caution and do some research first by reading up 
on the subject.

I'm writing this on my Ubuntu 6.10 machine.  It is very user friendly.  
The only problem is Ubuntu is sticking to pure open source free 
products so you have to go elsewhere to find media players that will 
play a wider range of media.  I use VLC (VideoLan) for a lot of media as 
it better designed than MPlayer.   None of these require a geek to 
install as Ubuntu comes with a package installer (in fact I think VLC 
just comes with Ubuntu).  More and more software vendors are beginning 
to develop for Linux.  I think the main problems is that being open 
source how do you do an encryption layer that allows software vendors to 
copy protect their software?  I'm sure that can be solved too.  How is 
it done on OS X? There used to be copy protection software Mac OS 9.0 
and under but I don't see anything for X.  But the solution may be 
virtual software where you go online to run a program rather than have 
it on your machine.  This scare the hell out of Microsoft since you 
wouldn't need Windows to do that.

Also Linspire's Freespire project has a media player that will play an

someone *else* for them to bounce off of.

We've all gotten used to being able to log on to
Fairfield Life and find at least a few posts that 
we can comment on in a manner that reflects our
Mood Of The Day. If we're feeling angry, we click
Next until we find something that allows us to
give vent to that anger, and then let fly. If
we're feeling self-important, we click Next until
we find some post that we can interpret as a
challenge to that self-importance and again, let
fly. In a few rare cases, if we're feeling good
we respond to the positive or funny posts with
more positivity or humor. But the bottom line is
that 90 of the posts here -- out of habit -- are
REACTIVE.

I think that the New FFL is a Good Thing. It
*does* have more silence, and that's a Good Thing
because it's more like a Quaker meeting than a 
pile-on argument at the corner bar. In Quaker meet-
ings no one says anything UNLESS THEY'VE 
GOT SOMETHING TO SAY. I suspect that that's 
the case with the New FFL. Give it some time. I 
think that *most* people here have something to 
say, if they are just given enough time to realize 
it and get over the need to respond compulsively 
to What Other People Say.

I'm a FAN of the New, Improved Fairfield Life. I
made only one post yesterday because I didn't have
anything else to say. But that's Ok. Sometimes 
silence really is a great deal more blessed than
the belief that one has to fill every silence with
the noise of gums flapping. 

Bottom line? If you want to have more to say on a
spiritual forum, have more spiritual experiences.
And then share them.

as you'll recall if you think for a moment, because
you helped him out--and those attacks have continued
unabated ever since, most of them gratuitous.

My sin, for the most part, has been in responding
to them and pointing out how dishonest and
hypocritical they were.  *You* try being the target

you can keep your mouth shut.

This charging for spirituality is the way spirit involves and the gurus
blessing flow. Thus we spiral into Kali yuga based on involution and
evolution. See Tarot card 15. Meanwhile the spiritual centers will be bought
and drained like oil reservoirs once a teacher or their vibes are siphoned
off. Then the teacher will be made more material for their next karmic spin.
And so on as we progresss into Kali's maw. Just because of this charging.
You see, it's Kali's due. So get over it. Kali is Great! Jai Ma - all things

RE: [FairfieldLife] Para level of thinking

2007-03-21 Thread llundrub
Lhuny: Yep, all is the Dharmadhatu.  What is of most interest to me is the
working out of glitches, which are moments of self-unawareness of
inseparability of inner/outer.  Hoglen makes it sound like one can just go
around desiring anything anytime if they do it right and it will be
fulfilled. Obviously karma and proper timing are the real issues, not ones
desire.  Especially, say for getting laid - a Hoglen speciality, say, and
then have someone rape them when they're sleeping.  Timing is everything.
Thus for a desire to get the final adidaivic approval one needs to sense the
importance and priority of nature's desires. Nature desires everything which
is why everything exists. Which is why one attains a state of Brahman, that
is, simply because one desire cannot protract another, thus the only real
payoff or result is wholeness and the sense thereof. Because we already have
everything with nothing excluded. 

I bet Hoeglen was really leading up to...supporting the pundits...and your
pocketbook.

TomT:
On the other hand one might better be served by realizing that the
thought one is picking up is being downloaded from the server and the
closer one picks it to the source the more one sees that thought
fulfilled. Like all things the point of view from the absolute is
going to be different than from the level of duality. When you know
you and source are the same the more one realizes everything is being
downloaded from source and one becomes a really great terminal. Dumb
but effective. Tom T

---Yes, Tolle, Ramana, and Papaji are examples of individuals who

 FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, amarnath [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 
 Namaste Jim,
 
 Thanks for a very refreshing account with minimum labels and
 conclusions. Simplicity seems to be a good pointer toward reality.
 
 Especially your last three paragraphs impress me that your awakening
 is in the right direction and genuine from what I understand from
 Ammachi, Papaji and others.
 
 Your account has some similarities with one( of many ) common 
patterns
 that I have been reading about: spiritual practices, gathering
 knowledge, having experiences, perhaps siddhis, and finally some 
sort
 of letting it all go because it all seems somewhat burdensome and
 complicated compared to the underlying simplicity of 
stillness/beingness. 
 
 Eckhart Tolle's path was a little different but still similar. He 
was
 searching for the meaning of life in academics which provided some
 happiness alternating with deep anxiety and depression. He said that
 suffering was his teacher and finally  `I' cannot live with 
`myself'
  was the impetus for  the inquiry Am `I' two or one? and LETTING 
GO
 which resulted in the reduction of 80% of his mental thoughts. 
 Letting go was not a choice, it was God's Grace, in my 
understanding.
 
 Sitting in Bliss on park benches for about two years followed. 
Then, a
 gradual integration and balance followed. In his case the letting go
 was primary and then, the simple spiritual knowledge( relatively 
free
 from past ) followed later. What Eckhart teaches is relatively free
 from the past, religions and traditions and accounts for his
 popularity. Of course, the essence of his teaching is the same 
because
 truth is one.
 
 One of Amma's statements is that a time will come, after enough
 spiritual effort and enough suffering, when one will lose all grasp 
on
 wealth, health, finances and spiritual practices themselves; then,
 there will be no choice but to surrender the ego completely. This 
may
 sound too drastic and perhaps not necessary for everyone; or perhaps
 allegorical. But, then again to completely surrender the ego
 completely is perhaps a goal not reached any other way? Just a
 thought for the time being. 
 
 Papaji points out that genuine awakening occurs when everything, all
 concepts, all beliefs, everything is surrendered completely, at 
least
 for one moment.  He warns that preconceived concepts about higher
 spiritual states can be a trap, because, as the mind becomes more
 powerful on the spiritual path, the mind will create these 
conceptual
 higher states( different levels and all that ) and the ego will feel
 it has arrived. The ego will feel that it is God.
 
 It seems that was the case with a Rakshasa like Ravana who was very
 adapt at spiritual austerities and siddhis. And perhaps explains the
 fallen/false spiritual teacher scenerio. 
 
 Jim, if you haven't read Papaji's The Truth Is and Nothing Ever
 Happened I highly recommend these. 
 
 The Truth Is provides hundreds of ways in which to flush out all 
the
 nooks and crannies where the ego can hide. See especially page 399
 Sadhana: There is no Becoming Being
 
 Nothing Ever Happened is an excellent biography. Papaji was a 
family
 man, a military officer, and managing engineer. His self realization
 started at age eight and matured in his 30's? when he met Ramana.
 Before that he did plenty of spiritual practices on his own. So,
 obviously, the awakening that he talks about has to be understood 
in
 the proper context; perhaps not understood but felt by ones 
Beingness.
 His mother was a sister of one of India's great sages.
 
 Again Jim, thanks for Awakening and blessing all of us with your
 simple, clear and genuine account.
 
 Gob Bless,
 amar

But none of that is my business. I don't care what drives it, I am a

sent a fairwell, it's been fun message, and then quit the group 

before my message percolated through the Yahoo mail system (Yahoo

member of FFL and couldn't post messages.

 

I think everyone on the anti side is rather distressed right now, 

due to the increased publicity on TM, and the ongoing Invicible 

America project, not to mention that pundits are finally arriving. 

Aside from MMY allegedly not keeping his dick in his dhoti, they have 

little to bash the TMO about these days, so they take it out on TM 

supporters that dare show their faces.

 

Ah well, even so, Paul Mason found FFL too pro-TM so he high-tailed 

it back to the TMFree blog, so I guess one man's excessively-biased-

other, depending where you fall on the scale of bias.

 

Enjoy FFL and whatnot. Say hi and bye to everyone and explain what

Subject: [FairfieldLife] Reward vs. Punishment: a different kind of
moderation


Since the subject of moderation of this forum has 
come up, might I suggest a different *form* of
moderation, one that I have seen work on other
spiritual forums? It's a kind of group moderation,
one that definitely WORKS to keep the overall 
state of attention high and flaming to a minimum.

What it involves is the feedback loop. In my 
opinion (and in the opinion of the other forums
on which I have seen this technique work), those
who spend a lot of time trying to provoke head-to-
head arguments or trying to insult or demonize 
other posters are -- bottom line -- seeking 
ATTENTION when they do so. 

Just don't give it to them.

The compulsion to argue, or to provoke controversy
is IMO a small s self phenomenon. What else gets
off on proving itself right, or on arguing with
someone else? The small s self is seeking to 
*perpetuate* itself by constantly trying to stir 
up controversy, in which other small s selves will 
*interact* with it, and thus allow *both* small s 
selves to pretend for another few minutes that they 
exist, and are firmly in charge.

An alternative is just for people posting here to
be a little more mindful about the posts that they
reply to. What I'm suggesting is that if you run
into a post that strikes you as uplifting, positive,
funny, or that otherwise made your day, respond to
it by complimenting or agreeing with the poster who
made the uplifting post. Get into a discussion with
them.

When you encounter posts that you consider negative,
or insulting, or designed to start a fight, respond
by NOT RESPONDING. Period. Don't give the small s 
self that was so lonely that the only way it knew
how to interact with other human beings was to fight
with them *any* feedback -- leave it alone in the 
dark, waiting for a response that never comes. 
DON'T get into discussion with such people.

Think about it. This approach works equally well if
you are a TM critic or a TM True Believer. If Vaj
or Paul say something that you perceive as negative or
calculated  to start a fight, JUST DON'T FIGHT. If 
Judy or Peter K or Nablus say something that seems 
equally designed to be conflict-provoking, JUST 
DON'T RESPOND. 

The effectiveness of this approach is in its simplicity.
All we have to do is REWARD the behavior we consider
positive by giving it feedback, and NOT REWARD
the behavior we consider less than positive by giving
it NO feedback at all. No one needs to get drawn into 
any conflict they do not wish to participate in. No 
one has to get down and roll in the mud except those 
who obviously *like* rolling in the mud.

This is what I'm going to try to do. Others can do as
they please. My experience is that when forums have to
descend to having someone act as official moderator, 
to fight the negativity, that's pretty much the end
of the forum. I'd hate to see that happen to FFL. But 
when the *members* of the forum just take it upon 
*themselves* to support the posts they deem positive 
via feedback, and to *not support* the posts they 
consider negative, via NO feedback, the negative 
situation tends to work itself out within a few short 
months. The compulsive flamers and arguers go somewhere
else to get their argument fix, because they can't 
get it on a forum on which almost no one responds to 
their provocations.

Again, it's a simple formula, based on an age-old 
spiritual truth: What you focus on you become.

If you want to become argumentation, focus on (and
respond to) the posts that are calculated to start an
argument. If you want to become harmony and positivity,
focus on (and respond to) only the posts that contain
those qualities.

Good luck.

--Looking at any previous MIU/TMO faculty/Alumni? Ex-TM Teacher, it is
assured that John as well will be cast off like a candy wrapper just as
everyone else, as soon as he is used up. In  TMO you're only as good as your
last meditation. When the technique wears off you're basically totally
fucked to the degree that it put a spell on you. (But one can actually say
these same things about everything, for example, one's job, which casts one
off when they cease to work, or ones lover, ones best friends even will cast
one off as soon as it's inconvenient, so for anything, you're as fucked as
the spell it put on you, in duality.)( In unity, that's a good thing as one
likes fucking.)Should I put that is a unity chart for you. Fucking. Fucking
outrageous. In CC Two fuck. Brahman. One moves around within their own fuck,
so fuck them too. 

Kirk say, we all totally fucked, since not one of us not. 

Whatcha gonna do when that spell wears off?

Hagelin could care less what happens in reality, as long he is the

 he is president, just like chubby over there in Fairfield.

Really,  I think you have to be concerned about John at this point.  
My thumbnail analysis:  He is approaching 60 yrs of age.  He doesn't 
have anything to show for his efforts, so he concocts this grandiose, 
over the top vision which has no chance of getting past the fantasy 
stage.  I say this because I know others who devoted their career 
building years with TMO, and now, having left the organization, they 
find themselves on the periphery of business or professional life, and 
they have a hard time dealing with it.

It's really true, MMY has shown us techniques for speeding enhanced
awareness, he can't do them for us. We are free to take as much or little,
in either the TMO or some allied organization. I know I have benefitted
greatly from Vedic techniques which MMY has touted, though not many of them
his at this point, that is besides the point, in the interdependence of all
things MMY's addition is Vedic and Impersonal. Vedic is to say God, and we
all know that pretty much every god fearing worshipper is somehow a total
hypocrite just as Jesus worshippers get blood lust whenever they hear of a
righteous war. Your God is the source of your bloodlust plain and simple,
and nothing else. Of course the problem is not the god but how the internal
interaction with God is self-filtered through human idiocy, and hence the
devas decome devils and Ahura Mazda becomes the asura. Because humans drink
tequila until they puke and then blame the tequila. Until one becomes a
tantric and it all just becomes calories.

 Yes. Joyce-Collin-Smith, who was MMY's personal secretary when he was
 based in London in the early and mid 60's wrote that MMY went from an
 essentially open door policy at the London center where he lived to
 locking his door in the afternoons, closeted alone with one young
 woman or another. He had departed from the Holy Tradition of his
 Masters as worldly needs had gradually got a hold on him.

There's an interesting linkage that many people are making between 
what Maharishi has or has not done, and what that might mean relative 
to the knowledge that he has brought out. Did he have sex even though 
he says he doesn't? Did he covet money even though he claims to be a 
monk who owns nothing? Is he a power monger although he professes to 
love everyone? And the 500 pound gorilla in the room is the possible 
impact these ambiguities have on the knowledge he has taught and 
spread. Otherwise, who cares?

The cool thing about all this as I see it is that each of those 
sticking points- the sex, the money and the power- are all vague 
enough in their evidence and any definitive answers as to allow near 
endless debate on each topic, leaving the ultimate decision regarding 
the validity of the knowledge Maharishi has brought out to the world 
up to each of us. 

There is no foundation on which to base a decision save the enjoyment 
or not each of us feels relative to the knowledge Maharishi has 
brought out. By pondering the events in his life, it brings us closer 
to examining the knowledge he has brought out. If he had been perfect, 
without any taint of conflict in his life, perhaps those near him 
would not have dived so deeply into the knowledge he brought out. Who 
knows?

Maharishi has not only taught the technique of Transcendental 
Meditation, he IS Transcendental Meditation, literally. Talk about 
walking the talk. Pretty trippy stuff.

Guru upset by Beatles' drug use


WORLD BRIEFINGS
By David Orr
LONDON DAILY TELEGRAPH
March 6, 2006 

 

NEW DELHI -- The spat between the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1968
became an instant pop legend as perhaps the most bitter breakup in the era
of free love. 
Now, after almost four decades of rumor and counter-rumor, a confidant
of both sides has gone public with revelations that could upset many of the
band's fans. 
Spiritualist and author Deepak Chopra, a former maharishi disciple and a
friend of the late George Harrison, has said that contrary to popular myth,
the row had nothing to do with charges that the maharishi made sexual
advances toward Mia Farrow, the actress and friend of the band. 

Presumably Deepak knows this because George Harrison told him. Otherwise,
how would he know? The Beatles were in Rishikesh in what, 1968? Deepak
didn't learn TM until 1980 or so. Anyway, the story John Lennon told was
quite different. Maharishi didn't want the Beatles to leave and tried to
talk them out of it. Also, Cynthia Lennon, in her book A Twist of Lennon,
said the Beatles were drug-free in Rishikesh. I think she would know better
than Deepak.

So, you had
   better be sure you're doing the right thing or you will have 
   adverse karma as a result.
  
  ...so it's still a crapshoot.
 
 Not entirely, nature gives us two resources to 'check' 
 behavior, One is scripture and the other is intuition 
 or 'conscience', which is an expression of intuition.

There are at least three. :-) Another taught in
some Buddhist traditions involves assessing one's
*own* state of attention as a measure of right 
and wrong.

That is, one is trained in discerning the minute
variations in state of attention as it fluctuates
day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute. Your
state of attention changes all the time; it's just
that most people haven't ever gained the discrim-
ination to notice how *much* it changes from minute
to minute. The training involves discerning which 
shifts in state of attention are up (meaning one 
has shifted to a higher state of attention) and which
are down (shifted to a lower state of attention).

Then, after having become somewhat practiced at 
this, you just watch your *own* state of attention
as you act and make your way through the world.
If you perform Action X, in Context Y, and your
state of attention goes down, you can pretty
much be sure that your choice of action in that
context was wrong, or at least not as right
as it could be. Similarly, if you perform Action X
in Context Y and your state of attention goes up,
then you did the right thing.

This -- for those who can practice it -- is actually
looked upon as a more efficient method of determining
right and wrong than either scripture or intuition.
Scripture has the drawback of being fixed and unaware
of *context*, so a rule that says Never kill pigs
might be inappropriate in the case of a crazy pig
about to kill a young toddler. And intuition is a hit-
and-miss proposition for most seekers; sometimes it's
right on, sometimes it's not.

But watching one's own state of attention, once you've
gotten the hang of it, never fails. The reason is that
there is a long-term aspect of karma that says that if
you do something wrong ALL of the negative energy your
actions produce will return to you. That's long-term
because it may take lifetimes for all that energy to
return to you. But there is also an *instantaneous*
aspect of karma -- do something wrong* and your state
of attention goes down. Immediately. Do something
right and your state of attention goes up. Immed-
iately. Thus you can use your own fluctuating states
of attention as a guideline.

The drawbacks of this approach are two. First, the
discrimination necessary to practice it can only be
taught via transmission -- by broadcasting states of
attention to the students and then varying them some-
what and asking them what they perceived when the 
shared state of attention changed. The second, of 
course, is that when you do wrong you only really
find out about it *afterwards*, as you state of 
attention has started to slide down. The latter
becomes less and less of a problem as you become
used to the discernment. You *start* to act a certain
way, get an instantaneous readout that you're going
the wrong way by realizing that your state of atten-
tion is lowering, and thus you correct your path and
go a different way. The whole process is that fast;
you can make such decisions in microseconds.
