"We can diffuse acute ethnic and religious tensions that underlie regional conflicts and terrorism, using field-tested approaches that have demonstrated their ability to quell violence and warfare. Novel as it may seem, these approaches include the practice of stress-reducing meditation techniques by strategically located groups--an approach that was scientifically shown to produce an 80% drop in war deaths and war-related injuries during the Lebanon war." - John Hagelin, Ph.D.

Permanent Peace

What does world peace have to do with cancer and health? Well, anything that helps reduce the exposure of the population to radiation, chemicals, and toxic biological agents is useful to help beat cancer. More importantly, however, the transformation of world consciousness will not only bring world peace, but will also transform the health of the population. This is not idle speculation. There are a number of published peer reviewed scientific studies which show that this new technology of consciousness can directly impact hospital admissions, infectious disease, terrorist incidents and other measures of collective health. - Editor, Alkalize For Health

Subject: Letter to the Editor

Here is a copy of a letter to the editor that a friend of mine in Canada sent to his local newspapers. The editor of one of the papers was so impressed that he posted the letter on his website and plans to set up a page with links to the scientific research. As my friend said, "Maharishi was right. We just need to be bold."

Use this letter as a basis for a letter of your own to newspapers, government officials, friends, etc. Americans can change the reference at the bottom of the letter from the $7 billion Canadian federal surplus to a comment on the US government spending $1 billion A DAY on defence. That amount alone could set up the endowment fund we need!
Ruth Anne
The Editor

The world changed for all of us on September 11th. To effectively deal with the underlying cause of these catastrophic events, it's time for the leaders of the world to acknowledge that there now exists a scientifically proven means to eliminate terrorism.

This means is unconventional. No guns will be fired. No bombs will be dropped. There will be no further casualties. It will get impressive, quantifiable and sustainable results quickly.

This alternate means of eliminating such negative currents as terrorism has been conclusively PROVEN to work. Forty-three scientific studies have now documented the link between this unconventional technology and significant reductions in conflict, including a now famous study of warfare in Lebanon published by Yale University's Journal of Conflict Resolution.

Mr. Stan Darling, former MP for Muskoka-Perry Sound and member of the Commons Defense Committee and Carmen Kilburn, former Police Commissioner of New Brunswick, recipient of the Solicitor General and Governor General of Canada Awards and the founder of Crime Prevention Week in Canada have both deeply researched this new alternate means of eliminating negativity and have been speaking publicly that we must act immediately to utilize this new technology.

What do scholars think?

"My first reaction to work in this tradition was one of total disbelief. However, its proponents have shown themselves prepared to subject programs to empirical test, and the technique already has a sounder basis than many less exotic approaches. At the minimum, courtesy and humility demand interest and attention to its progress and testing. If favourable tests keep coming, we should not shrink from using them, or from seeking to understand them."  Ken Pease, Ph.D., Professor of Criminology, University of Huddersfield, England; Board Member Home Office National Crime Prevention Board.

"This is promising research. It is a non-traditional approach, but the methodology of these studies is sound and the statistical significance high. In a world as unstable and dangerous as ours, I believe that any approach with such consistent objective support deserves careful attention."  Dr. Ved Nanda, Director of the Legal Studies Program, University of Denver; formerly President of the International Association of Law Professors.

"The hypothesis definitely raised some eyebrows among our reviewers. But the statistical work was sound. The numbers were there. When you can statistically control for as many variables as these studies do, it makes the results much more convincing."  Raymond Russ, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, University of Maine; Editor of the Journal of Mind and Behaviour.

"I think the claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of ANY OTHER SOCIAL OR PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH PROGRAM. It has survived a broader array of statistical tests than most research in the field of conflict resolution. This work and the theory  that informs it deserve the most serious consideration by academics and policy makers alike."  David Edwards, Ph.D., Professor of Government, University of Texas at Austin.

What could it be that these reasoned individuals have concluded has such potential? As even these researchers have alluded, to wrap your mind around such a novel approach requires a willingness to explore a totally new paradigm and be prepared to jettison the prejudice that comes from a lifetime of seeing the world the old way.

This new "weapon" that will eliminate terrorism is yogic flying. Almost everybody has seen a clip of yogic flying on TV or photos in the press showing people with legs crossed hopping on foam mats. The practice of yogic flying creates what is now known to science as the Maharishi Effect. I have personally been practicing this technique twice a day, without fail, for 23 years.

While this all sinks in, let's explore how yogic flying generates this important and needed influence.

War (and terrorism) is made in the minds of men. Terrorism is only possible when individuals in society at large are stressed beyond a certain threshold. The practice of yogic flying creates an extremely powerful influence of coherence that positively affects ALL individuals in such a way that the tensions held by those individuals who would undertake acts of terrorism are simply dissolved. It IS that simple.

This can be explored further. There are questions that beg answers such as how one person doing something in one place can positively influence the actions of a person or persons somewhere else. Brain wave research has documented that when a person thinks a thought, their brain generates approximately 8% coherence (hence the adage that the typical person uses less than 10% of their mental potential). By contrast, when the body lifts up during yogic flying, researchers see nearly 100% brain wave coherence. Just as a powerful magnet can influence other magnets nearby, a fully coherent brain positively affects everyone. We are only scratching the surface here. I strongly recommend your readers explore the following websites to gain further insight into the significance and substance of this powerful technology.



How are you doing? Has this got you thinking or have you retreated and rejected a valuable new concept? In which camp would you have found yourself if you had lived in the time of Galileo when he proposed support for the radical notion that the Earth revolved around the sun instead of the other way around? Think about it. Would you have rationally examined the evidence presented or would you have just rejected the radical new paradigm?

It's no different for each of you now. You will either explore the substantial scientific research that documents, with an extremely high level of probability, that yogic flying works or you will reject it. Even those whose minds are fresh and flexible may find this proposal a shock at first but they will allow themselves to consider what at the onset may appear revolutionary. And when they do, the world will never be the same again.

As a final note, Prime Minister Chretien is proposing to spend the majority of this year's projected $7 billion federal surplus on combating terrorism. This would be a huge waste. Terrorism can be eliminated WORLDWIDE for a fraction of this amount. Our politicians have been briefed repeatedly on the technology of yogic flying. It's time for them to put it to work. Write your MP and the Prime Minister. They know the old ways are not working. It's now time for this new technology to bring sustainable peace to the entire world.

Dear friends,

You will find as attachments three texts that are very well worth the time to read. I invite you to reflect on them and act on them.

The first text is a letter to the editor published this morning (November 5) in the Ottawa Citizen. It is entitled Meditation is a proven strategy in conflict resolution. It was written by Garry Foster in response to the October 18 editorial entitled A Just and Lawful War.

The second text is an article published on October 31 in The Ottumwa Courier. Ottumwa is a city of Iowa. The author had the courage to do justice to Maharishi's message to the educators attending the Holistic Development Eductor's Conference in Fairfield (Iowa) on October 26.

The third text is about the so-called "War on Terrorism" going on in Afghanistan and the motives behind it. This is an excellent article from the front page of today's Mirror - one of the UK's major newspapers.

What is said in the article about the American and British governments also applies to our elected representatives who are following blindly the murderers who are invoking all kinds of "pious arguments" to justify this mad pursuit of killing. We should not forget that these stupid acts of revenge are supported by our tax dollars. We know very little about the hidden agenda of our leaders who most often yield to the constant pressure of the most powerful lobbies of the corporate world. 

Very few people have the courage to denounce this monumental fraud for what it is. For years Maharishi has been denouncing this utter non-sense and he has been offering us the most simple and natural way to avoid such conflicts and to create Heaven on Earth. Why do we want to continue to live in hell when the most powerful technologies of real peace are available and have been amply validated by modern science?  

What are we waiting for to use them?  Are we telling our friends and relatives and co-workers about them? Are we telling our elected representatives? When will our government pay attention to these proven technologies to create progress, harmony and prosperity instead or spending our money on agendas that can only create more crime, more disease, more fear, more ignorance, and more dependence?

And it is not only a question of money. It is much more. Life itself is wasted deliberately with our consent. Yes, our silence is consent. Are we waiting to be the next victims of acts of terrorism before we stand up and speak up and tell our media and our elected representatives that it is wild and stupid to try to extinguish fire with fire?

In the first 85 years of the 20th century alone, 76 millions human lives were lost in wars. We have been very fortunate to witness war from a distance. Some of our relatives fought wars abroad. Some died. Some came back with scars that affected the rest of their lives. But today we have the technologies to change enemies into friends and realize practically that the world is our family.

Are we really peace-loving people as the rest of the world think we are? Are we losing our reputation? We have already lost it to certain extent during the Kosovo crisis when we followed NATO in their attacks on Yugoslavia. NATO is not able to protect anybody against terrorism. NATO is a force of destruction whose existence is no longer justifiable. The actions of NATO are a threat to our safety and to our progress. The quicker Canada will move out of NATO, the better off we will be.

If you think these words are useful, please pass them around to your relatives, to your friends and elected representatives.

I would like to hear from you.

Meditation is a proven strategy in conflict resolution

Garry Foster

The Ottawa Citizen

Monday, November 05, 2001


Re: A just and lawful war, Oct. 18.

Many peace-loving Canadians would take issue with your editorial. No matter how we justify it, killing is a sin; it can never be "just." Eliminating violence with violence leads to a chain reaction of violence: "As you sow, so shall you reap."

You have stacked your criticism around the legality of armed conflict. It is not a question of legality; it is the efficacy of armed conflict as a permanent solution. Armed force, peace treaties and negotiation have a place in our history, but victory has been fleeting.

You are correct about the United Nations. The World Encyclopedia of Peace reports a dismal record: since the UN's inception in 1945, there have been more than 120 major wars; four times as many war deaths have occurred since the Second World War than before it; 78 million lives were lost in wars during the first 85 years of the 20th century alone.

Clearly, new methods of conflict resolution are needed.

The only way to disarm terrorism is at its basis -- the "thinking" that leads to terrorism. The constitution of UNESCO declares: "Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed." We should not feel an aversion toward new solutions that may appear unconventional; we should feel an aversion to ineffectual, conventional solutions of the past.

We need a strategy that transcends ideology, religion, ethnicity and culture. That strategy exists. The collective practice of Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programs have reduced violence and terrorism in volatile spots in the world during the last 30 years. Numerous studies on this practice have been published in prestigious scientific journals, including Yale's Journal of Conflict Resolution. Results have repeatedly shown a reduction in armed conflict, decreased terrorism, improved international relations and decreased war intensity and fatalities. When there is a proven, peaceful strategy of conflict resolution, why are we not using it? How many more lives will be lost?

No one should demean Alexa McDonough and others as merely "well-meaning." We should all work together to solve this looming problem with solutions that are proven and permanent, not fleeting.

Garry Foster,


Secretary, Parliaments of World Peace, Canada

October 31, 2001  Maharishi Mahesh Yogi calls for Bush's removal 


By JO ANN GESNER, Fairfield correspondent 

FAIRFIELD - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation movement, called for the removal of President Bush during a weekend conference of his followers.  The Maharishi said during his keynote address Saturday that Bush's bellicose posture has opened the road to the gates of hell.  Speaking from Holland, the Maharishi told conference attendees that many unintelligent people believe in arms. He said Bush's ignorance of science has led him to rashly go out and destroy the world.

Maharishi told 300 people attending a Holistic Development Educators' Conference Friday that crime, school violence and terrorism demonstrate that education has failed society. Maharishi said on one side, the Unified Field of knowledge was discovered by modern science. On the other side, it is excluded from daily life and the discovery has lost its purpose. Maharishi said America should realize it's highly dangerous that the scientific knowledge of the Unified Field has been excluded from education. He said the individual is cosmic and Americans should wake up to the knowledge that education is to unfold- this means unfolding what is latent in the field of total knowledge (the Unified Field).

Maharishi then addressed the terrorism affecting the US. Maharishi said, "Americans should wake up, to the sense of that every country has a responsibility for every other country. Don't have a second experience of these days (of terrorism). Take a lesson from what you have done. You can destroy and remaining in darkness you will have to reap the results. Life can be lived in peace, happiness - give to the world. Make your administration uplifting."  When asked about the great fear about bio-weapons such as anthrax, Maharishi said any kind of destiny coming to America is as a result of America doing the same thing everywhere.  "This is initiated by America, and as a result terrorism is coming. More and more Americans are going in that direction, and more of those kind of things will follow," said Maharishi. 

Maharishi cautioned, "Don't go deeper into the mud. Killing is sin. Don't repeat today, tomorrow. If you have money, promote life. Don't create continuous scenes of Hiroshima or this country will be associated with Hiroshima. You'll be brave by nourishing the world. You're not brave by killing the world. It's not patriotism - it's blind patriotism."  Holistic education is a solution to the creation of a better administration, which is the way of a civilized world, he said. There is a saying in the Rig Veda that management should be organized from the roots of intelligence.  "If you don't attend to the root, you don't have flowers or fruits," Maharishi said. 

Maharishi said the solution lies in education unfolding the full potential of the brain. This cosmic value within each individual is both in physics and ingrained in the human physiology. He said MUM and the Maharishi School is creating a good example.  Maharishi also told conference attendees that Yogic Flying is one system that radiates harmony and will produce waves of coherence for the world, preventing the negative tendencies that lead to terrorism and war. He said the principle is to hold a bigger light that will radiate farther away.  "It's a simple message of caution, help and sympathy. The nation is going the wrong way. The educators can change this and enjoy the sympathetic support of all nations in the world."

The Mirror - London

The war against terrorism is a fraud. After three weeks' bombing, not a single terrorist implicated in the attacks on America has been caught or killed in Afghanistan.

Instead, one of the poorest, most stricken nations has been terrorised by the most powerful - to the point where American pilots have run out of dubious "military" targets and are now destroying mud houses, a hospital, Red Cross warehouses, lorries carrying refugees.

Unlike the relentless pictures from New York, we are seeing almost nothing of this. Tony Blair has yet to tell us what the violent death of children - seven in one family - has to do with Osama bin Laden.

And why are cluster bombs being used? The British public should know about these bombs, which the RAF also uses. They spray hundreds of bomblets that have only one purpose; to kill and maim people. Those that do not explode lie on the ground like landmines, waiting for people to step on them.

If ever a weapon was designed specifically for acts of terrorism, this is it. I have seen the victims of American cluster weapons in other countries, such as the Laotian toddler who picked one up and had her right leg and face blown off. Be assured this is now happening in Afghanistan, in your name.

None of those directly involved in the September 11 atrocity was Afghani. Most were Saudis, who apparently did their planning and training in Germany and the United States. The camps which the Taliban allowed bin Laden to use were emptied weeks ago. Moreover, the Taliban itself is a creation of the Americans and the British. In the 1980s, the tribal army that produced them was funded by the CIA and trained by the SAS to fight the Russians.

The hypocrisy does not stop there. When the Taliban took Kabul in 1996, Washington said nothing. Why? Because Taliban leaders were soon on their way to Houston, Texas, to be entertained by executives of the oil company, Unocal.

With secret US government approval, the company offered them a generous cut of the profits of the oil and gas pumped through a pipeline that the Americans wanted to build from Soviet central Asia through Afghanistan.

A US diplomat said: "The Taliban will probably develop like the Saudis did." He explained that Afghanistan would become an American oil colony, there would be huge profits for the West, no democracy and the legal persecution of women. "We can live with that," he said.

Although the deal fell through, it remains an urgent priority of the administration of George W. Bush, which is steeped in the oil industry. Bush's concealed agenda is to exploit the oil and gas reserves in the Caspian basin, the greatest source of untapped fossil fuel on Earth and enough, according to one estimate, to meet America's voracious energy needs for a generation. Only if the pipeline runs through Afghanistan can the Americans hope to control it. [Editor's note: Perhaps it is time for President Bush to admit his conflict of interest by revealing how many Unocal shares his family owns].

So, not surprisingly, US Secretary of State Colin Powell is now referring to "moderate" Taliban, who will join an American-sponsored "loose federation" to run Afghanistan. The "war on terrorism" is a cover for this: a means of achieving American strategic aims that lie behind the flag-waving facade of great power.

The Royal Marines, who will do the real dirty work, will be little more than mercenaries for Washington's imperial ambitions, not to mention the extraordinary pretensions of Blair himself. Having made Britain a target for terrorism with his bellicose "shoulder to shoulder" with Bush nonsense, he is now prepared to send troops to a battlefield where the goals are so uncertain that even the Chief of the Defence Staff says the conflict "could last 50 years".

The irresponsibility of this is breathtaking; the pressure on Pakistan alone could ignite an unprecedented crisis across the Indian sub-continent. Having reported many wars, I am always struck by the absurdity of effete politicians eager to wave farewell to young soldiers, but who themselves would not say boo to a Taliban goose.

In the days of gunboats, our imperial leaders covered their violence in the "morality" of their actions. Blair is no different. Like them, his selective moralising omits the most basic truth. Nothing justified the killing of innocent people in America on September 11, and nothing justifies the killing of innocent people anywhere else.

By killing innocents in Afghanistan, Blair and Bush stoop to the level of the criminal outrage in New York. Once you cluster bomb, "mistakes" and "blunders" are a pretence. Murder is murder, regardless of whether you crash a plane into a building or order and collude with it from the Oval Office and Downing Street.

If Blair was really opposed to all forms of terrorism, he would get Britain out of the arms trade. On the day of the twin towers attack, an "arms fair", selling weapons of terror (like cluster bombs and missiles) to assorted tyrants and human rights abusers, opened in London's Docklands with the full backing of the Blair government.

Britain's biggest arms customer is the medieval Saudi regime, which beheads heretics and spawned the religious fanaticism of the Taliban.

If he really wanted to demonstrate "the moral fibre of Britain", Blair would do everything in his power to lift the threat of violence in those parts of the world where there is great and justifiable grievance and anger.

He would do more than make gestures; he would demand that Israel ends its illegal occupation of Palestine and withdraw to its borders prior to the 1967 war, as ordered by the Security Council, of which Britain is a permanent member.

He would call for an end to the genocidal blockade which the UN - in reality, America and Britain - has imposed on the suffering people of Iraq for more than a decade, causing the deaths of half a million children under the age of five. That's more deaths of infants every month than the number killed in the World Trade Center.

There are signs that Washington is about to extend its current "war" to Iraq; yet unknown to most of us, almost every day RAF and American aircraft already bomb Iraq. There are no headlines. There is nothing on the TV news. This terror is the longest-running Anglo - American bombing campaign since World War Two.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the US and Britain faced a "dilemma" in Iraq, because "few targets remain". "We're down to the last outhouse," said a US official. That was two years ago, and they're still bombing. The cost to the British taxpayer? £800 million so far.

According to an internal UN report, covering a five-month period, 41 per cent of the casualties are civilians. In northern Iraq, I met a woman whose husband and four children were among the deaths listed in the report. He was a shepherd, who was tending his sheep with his elderly father and his children when two planes attacked them, each making a sweep. It was an open valley; there were no military targets nearby.

"I want to see the pilot who did this," said the widow at the graveside of her entire family. For them, there was no service in St Paul's Cathedral with the Queen in attendance; no rock concert with Paul McCartney.

The tragedy of the Iraqis, and the Palestinians, and the Afghanis is a truth that is the very opposite of their caricatures in much of the Western media. Far from being the terrorists of the world, the overwhelming majority of the Islamic peoples of the Middle East and south Asia have been its victims - victims largely of the West's exploitation of precious natural resources in or near their countries.

There is no war on terrorism. If there was, the Royal Marines and the SAS would be storming the beaches of Florida, where more CIA-funded terrorists, ex-Latin American dictators and torturers, are given refuge than anywhere on Earth.

There is, however, a continuing war of the powerful against the powerless, with new excuses, new hidden agendas, new lies. Before another child dies violently, or quietly from starvation, before new fanatics are created in both the east and the west, it is time for the people of Britain to make their voices heard and to stop this fraudulent war - and to demand the kind of bold, imaginative non-violent initiatives that require real political courage.

The other day, the parents of Greg Rodriguez, a young man who died in the World Trade Center, said this: "We read enough of the news to sense that our government is heading in the direction of violent revenge, with the prospect of sons, daughters, parents, friends in distant lands dying, suffering, and nursing further grievances against us. "It is not the way to go...not in our son's name."




On the front page of the Times Globe (Wednesday, November 7), I found a picture of Saint John MP Elsie Wayne, the Conservative defense critic, trying on a helmet before a meeting of the Commons Standing Committee on National Defence on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. These days, the Committee discusses the readiness of the Canadian Forces. 

In the present context of "war against terrorism", this fashion statement may appear to be appropriate. However, I invite the parents, particularly the mothers of our troops, to accompany me for a few minutes and consider how the decision of our government to follow George W. Bush in his campaign of revenge might be considered utterly unwise and unnecessary, merely bringing more problems of all kinds. As we sow, so shall we reap. Ask the religious leaders of any denomination: "Is killing a sin or not?" And if they say no, ask again and again. If they say killing is not a sin, then they are simply uneducated. They don't see the situation in a wide perspective. They use only a small fraction of their brain. Today, there is absolutely no reason to be involved in such conflicts, because the knowledge and technology to create peace is available and has been validated by numerous scientific studies published in the best peer-reviewed journals. The problem is that very few people seem to know about them even though they have been available in North America for almost 50 years. 

What I say may appear more mystical than rational, more curious than conceivable. And yet, on September 28th in Washington, D.C. the plausibility of using a strategy of consciousness to immediately diffuse the threat of terrorism was credibly presented to the world press by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The plan? An immediate gathering of 40,000 Vedic pandits trained in the art of mental coherence. The cost? Less than what the U.S. spends on defence in one day. The catch? Finding the courage to acknowledge that the mind is mightier than matter. The reward? Perpetual world peace. The response? America and its coalition, including Canada, began bombing Afghanistan. 

Middle Eastern analysts have warned that radicalized Islamic factions are using the United States to unify the Islamic world against western culture and ideals. Rather than outsmart this regime, the U.S. has fallen victim to a calculated plot. As predicted, they are flexing their military muscle and flaunting their brute strength. Consider that they (I should rather say "we" because we are following in their shadow) are assaulting an already war-torn Afghan landscape with the Pentagon's "full range of weaponry." In less than a week, they have achieved supremacy of the Afghan air space. It was not difficult! But on their own soil the Americans have lost ground as an insidious powder has surfaced via an unsuspecting postal system and now fear is gripping everybody. And the pharmaceutical companies who produce vaccines and drugs are laughing all the way to the bank and are fanning the media hype. Their representatives will soon gather in Qatar to make sure that no country will ever be able to lower the cost of drugs in case of wide spread epidemics.

From the perspective of cost and reward, the use of Maharishi's consciousness-based strategy is appealing. Consider that this approach requires no military arsenal, no ground troops, no loss of life, and no threat of global annihilation. Consider that every time this strategy has been implemented in "hot spots" around the world the results have been measurable, consistent, and effective. The results have been published in more than 40 scientific journals such as the Journal of Conflict Resolution, Social Indicators Research, Social Science Perspectives Journal, the Journal of Mind and Behavior, the Journal of Crime and Behavior, the Journal of Crime and Justice, and Psychology, Crime, and Law. Additionally, these remarkable findings have been made available to governments of the world, but this information has mostly been ignored.

The readers who know something about peer-reviewed scientific journals will agree that a respectable journal will not publish a study unless a committee of their own scientists has thoroughly reviewed the material presented to them. All the journals listed above have a good reputation and they are not interested in seeing it tarnished. They do their homework; they don't take risks. So why is it that our elected representatives give no credit to these studies? 

For many decades Maharishi has told us that crime has been coming up in every generation, and every government has implemented punishments; but crime and punishment continue, generation after generation. Major General Kulwant Singh, a highly decorated, 35-year military veteran in India and an expert in anti-terrorism, spoke at the September 28th Washington news conference via telephone from India. "Today the world is looking for a solution to violence and terrorism," he said. "But bombs will never bring peace. Violence begets violence. I can speak this with the conviction of 35 years experience of fighting terrorism. If you want to bring peace, you must reduce the cause of violence, and that is stress in society." 

Like many prominent leaders, Major General Singh has recognized the efficiency of Maharishi's programs to reduce stress in society. These ancient technologies were lost in India and have been revived in this generation by Maharishi, who always insisted on the importance of taking this knowledge out the realm of mysticism and examining it in the light of the most advanced discoveries of modern science.

U.S. Philanthropist Jeffrey Abramson urged America's business leaders to act. "The search for sustainable and lasting peace continues because, until Maharishi and these scientists offered this solution, we never addressed the roots of war, terrorism, anger, and crime. If we do not look within human consciousness and if we do not expand human experience from within, then where will peace in our world come from?" Maharishi teaches that an enemy is a lively embodiment of our own weakness. As we create more coherence in our own selves, we radiate more peace and love to others. And we then find that we no longer have an enemy. Now that our government is about to vote on bill C-36, we all need to pay closer attention to Maharishi's wise advice. Our government cannot provide any scientific study that demonstrates that coercion and imprisonment have ever created real lasting peace. No government can, because all studies prove the opposite. Do we want the atmosphere of a Police State where everybody is his neighbour's or his brother's enemy or do we want real peace born of inner satisfaction and happiness? The choice is ours. 

On Thursday November 8, Campbell Morrison of the Times Globe was giving us an idea of the pros and cons about bill C-36. "The bill itself," he writes, "was written in record time by bureaucrats burning the candle at both ends without the usual benefit of outside help, so the government cannot claim that bill C-36 is perfect." Morrison also writes something that I find very surprising, if not disturbing: "While everybody wants 'balance' between the obligation of the state to pursue terrorists and the right of citizens to their freedoms as protected by the Charter, there is great disagreement over where to place it. Not surprisingly, police forces and governments prefer to err on the side of extra authority, while civil libertarians and ethnic groups, the Canadian Jewish Congress excepted, prefer to err on the side of freedoms." 

Why would the Canadian Jewish Congress want to give the government the authority to arrest, without warrant, somebody suspected of terrorism? Have they forgotten what the Nazis did to them? Are we forgetting the lessons of history? Are we forgetting the witch hunts of Salem and the like? Are we not aware that under fear the collective consciousness becomes erratic, abusive and often despotic? Would it not be better to wake up to the reality that there is a simple solution to all this nonsense. It is here at hand. Maharishi has been patiently offering it to us for almost fifty years. And he never changed his message. It is plain and simple.

What more do we need in order to stand up, speak up, and tell our elected representatives to pay attention? May be we need the time to understand that human consciousness in its state of least excitation is a field of unity. It is field of all possibilities. It is difficult for the human mind to conceive of a field of all possibilities because we have been accustomed to using only a small fraction of our brain. Today the knowledge and technology to access this field is available. Do we want to experience it daily and reap unlimited rewards? The word 'unlimited' scares you! Have you thought for a minute that this field of intelligence silently administers the whole universe without a problem? We can also continue to use the same old means of terror and destruction that have failed generation after generation and keep our families in the shackles of fear and misery. Which of the two solutions is most frightening?

Why using a sleep mask? The hormone Melatonin regulates the day-night cycle of the human body and controls the recovery phases during sleep. For the production of this hormone, the human body requires sufficient darkness. Lightness prevents the production of Melatonin. Even a little portion of light during your sleep, for example caused by a digital clock, is a disturbance. Sleep masks however provide complete darkness for your sleep.

Sleep masks - what for?
- if you want to sleep while travelling, e.g. on airplanes or in trains;
- if your bedroom cannot completely be shaded by black-out curtains and you want to sleep in;
- if you cannot fall asleep because your partner wants to read or watch TV;
- if you are looking for perfect relaxation during yoga, wellness or meditation.
