230-DAY UPDATE FROM THE
INVINCIBLE AMERICA ASSEMBLY

America’s Dramatic New Peace Outreach
To Iran, Syria, and North Korea
Due to Rise of Coherent National Consciousness
Created by Group of 1600 Advanced Meditators in Iowa

U.S. Consumer Confidence Remains High
Despite Tumult in Global Stock Markets

(March 11, 2007) The sudden turnaround in U.S. foreign policy towards Iran, Syria, and North Korea—a dramatic shift away from confrontation and belligerence towards consensus building and peace—is the direct result of the increased coherence in national consciousness created by the large group of 1600 advanced Transcendental Meditation program experts in Iowa.
This is the assessment of world-renowned quantum physicist Dr. John Hagelin, who is leading the “Invincible America Assembly” at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa—the largest scientific demonstration project ever to monitor the effects on national trends of a group of advanced meditation experts.
The Assembly was launched 230 days ago on July 23, 2006, by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to create coherent national consciousness—the basis of a peaceful, prosperous, invincible country.

Marked transformation in U.S. foreign policy
since the launch of the Invincible America Assembly

Since the launch of the Assembly and the rise of coherent national consciousness, U.S. foreign policy has undergone a series of marked transformations, beginning in early August with the U.S.-forged ceasefire on the Israeli-Lebanon border—a Mideast flashpoint for decades that is now in its seventh peaceful month. The November elections then brought in new congressional leadership supportive of the peace process. And now, the U.S. has joined talks with Iran and Syria in Baghdad to resolve the Iraq war—and is in serious negotiations with North Korea to put an end to the volatile and longstanding nuclear crisis.
At the same time, since the start of the Assembly, the U.S. economy has enjoyed sustained growth, with the Dow climbing more than 1500 points—while oil prices have fallen from a high of $78 a barrel in July to the under $62 a barrel. And despite the recent tumult in global market prices, U.S. consumer confidence remains high, according to a March 6 ABC News/Washington Post survey. That confidence is another sign of coherent national consciousness, Dr. Hagelin said.

Positive trends predicted publicly in advance

Dr. Hagelin said that rigorous statistical analysis shows that the upsurge of positive trends—predicted publicly in advance—started when an initial group of 1200 experts in Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation program and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, first assembled in Iowa from across the U.S. and around the world to create coherent collective consciousness—the basis of the ongoing national transformation.

Extensive published scientific research documents the Maharishi Effect

Extensive research published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals documents the reduced negative trends, including reduced crime and violence, and improved economic and social trends when as few as the square root of one percent of a population practice Yogic Flying together in a group.

Scientists named this phenomenon the “Maharishi Effect” after Maharishi, the renowned Vedic scholar who 50 years ago founded the Transcendental Meditation program, and who predicted the beneficial impact of group meditation on social trends as early as 1975.


Group of 2000 Yogic Flyers needed to make the nation invincible

Dr. Hagelin said that the group of 1600 Yogic Flyers in the Assembly is sufficient to produce a positive influence in the political and economic trends of the nation, “but not enough to raise the nation to a true state of peace and invincibility.”

Dr. Hagelin said that, according to research, when the number of Yogic Flyers reaches the square root of one percent of the U.S. population (about 2000), there will be an even more dramatic improvement in national trends, and any lingering problems in the country will be quickly resolved.
 

Invincible Assemblies being established worldwide

Dr. Hagelin added that similar Invincible Assemblies are being established in large and small nations to form a “ring of invincibility” around the world, to prevent problems, and to promote permanent peace and invincibility in every nation.

“This is not wishful thinking,” said Dr. Hagelin, who serves as the Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace. “This is hard science that has been field tested for over 50 years and documented through more than 600 studies conducted at over 250 independent universities and research institutes throughout the world.”

The Invincible America Assembly is being funded by an annual $12 million grant from the “Howard and Alice Settle Foundation for an Invincible America.”
 

The Power of Thinking
in Tune with Natural Law
 

Dr Hagelin: (March 14, 2007) ‘There is a new trend in America and throughout the world that is gaining mainstream acceptance and interest, and that trend is that people are relying more and more on the power of positive thinking, rather than hard work, to accomplish a goal. The idea is that thoughts alone, without physical exertion, have the power to organize events in favour of the thinker—that positive thoughts somehow attract positive results. I am interested in Dr Hagelin's take on this. How powerful are thoughts? Can they in fact, organize events?’

‘We all know thoughts have power, and Maharishi explains this beautifully. I will come to Maharishi's explanation in a minute. We all know that thought drives the whole physiology. If we have a thought to lift the hand, then the hand lifts. So certainly the human body is a masterful design, where the body responds to every impulse of thought spontaneously. We already know we have the capability of achieving our desires, at least through the response of our own physiology, through the field of our own thought. One very powerful avenue for the successful accomplishment of our desires is through the agency of the human physiology. Therefore, I guess the question then becomes, “To what extent can we consider the entire world, our physical environment, to be an extension of our body?” That is, “To what extent is the environment around us responsive to our thoughts?”

‘Well, we have seen from Maharishi's wisdom that human thought at its deepest level, at its transcendental level, at its Para level, beyond articulated linguistic thought and finer and finer levels of thought, is the Unified Field at the basis of mind and matter. That level of thought, the level of Being, the Para level of consciousness, the transcendental level of thought, is the Unified Field and the whole universe is its expression. Modern science delineates very rigorously the stage-by-stage mechanics through which this field of consciousness precipitates as our human physiology, and precipitates as the material environment in the form of atoms, molecules, and macroscopic objects, even galaxies. Everything, ultimately, is an expression of the Unified Field. Everything, ultimately, is an expression of consciousness. Everything, ultimately, is the physiology of consciousness.

‘So, the whole universe is our extended physiology. So, to the extent that we are thinking at that Para level of the Unified Field—if we gain the precious skill of entertaining thought or desire at that Para level of consciousness, transcendental consciousness, the Unified Field—that thought will get picked up and manifested anywhere and everywhere throughout creation, because the whole creation is the physiology of the Unified Field. Just as this is the physiology of my consciousness and responds to my consciousness, the universe is also, ultimately, the physiology of consciousness, and responds to an impulse of consciousness, if that impulse is at that universal level—the non-strictly-individual level of mind, the universal level of Being, from which the whole universe is the expression.
 

‘Yes, thoughts are powerful. Maharishi describes and emphasizes the importance of spontaneous fulfillment of desire, and also, more importantly, teaches the skill of desiring—how to entertain an impulse of desire at that absolute level. The mechanics of that really are the TM-Sidhi Program, the advanced techniques of Transcendental Meditation, including Yogic Flying, whereby the body lifts up in the air, through mere impulse of thought. The response of the environment to a mere impulse of thought is demonstrated very dramatically and directly in the Yogic Flying phenomenon itself.

‘Maharishi is the master of the science of Yoga, the science of Being, the science of thinking from the level of Being, where the whole universe is our extended physiology, and where support of Nature is not just within our physiology, but throughout the environment as it responds to our impulse of thought. So thought can be incredibly powerful. At that deepest level, when developed properly through practice, the ability to entertain desire within the absolute, omnipresent field stirs the totality of the laws of nature. When that is established, it is literally possible to fulfil desires instantly, to know anything indeed, and to achieve anything by a mere impulse of thought. And the speed of the fulfillment of thought really just has to do with how proficient we are with entertaining that thought on the absolute level, where total Natural Law and all possibilities are a reality.

‘On the other hand, the equally important point that everybody seems to miss is that human thoughts can be incredibly weak. If thought is at a very superficial level of mind, with the whole brain physiology scattered and chaotic, where there is no profound orderliness of thinking—agitated waking consciousness—thoughts are often not fulfilled. Even the response of the body, the physiology, to thoughts becomes helter-skelter and ineffective, if the mind is scattered. So, clear orderly thinking is at the basis of clear orderly action and behavior of our physiology. We know how important orderly action is. On a very weak level of thought, even the human physiology does not respond perfectly, and certainly the laws of nature in the environment also do not respond to such superficial thought, which is so far removed from that field of Para, transcendental thought that stirs the universe.

‘So, thought can be quite weak, and it can be very powerful. This is exactly what we would expect from looking at quantum physics, if we could see the Unified Field Chart for physics. Maharishi explains and science confirms that the universe is structured in layers from superficial to profound, from macroscopic to microscopic, and that in every deeper level of Natural Law from to molecular to atomic, from nuclear to sub nuclear, Nature becomes more powerful. The quantum principle guarantees increasing power at more fundamental scales. Like that, the human mind, while fathoming deeper levels of reality at finer levels of thought, becomes similarly more and more powerful and most powerful on the level of Being, abstract transcendental thought.

‘It is on that level by the way, that a small group of Yogic Flyers stirring the field of transcendental Unity, the Unified Field, can transform the destiny of an entire country. That is an illustration of the power of thought, which has been abundantly scientifically documented, demonstrated, and confirmed. So thoughts can be weak, thoughts can be powerful. The most important thing in life, in education, is to develop the power of thought, the orderliness and power of the mind, and capture that field of consciousness within, own that Para level of thinking. Capture the field of Being, which is our own unbounded Self, after all. Capture the Self. Know Thyself, Thy unbounded universal Self, whose nature is immortality and bliss. Know That by which anything can be achieved, know That by which, according to the Upanishads, anything can be known.

‘So, the power of positive thinking is either powerful or not, frankly, depending upon the level on which one is using the mind. Rather than hope for more powerful, productive, successful thoughts, develop it directly. Dive within. Utilize Maharishi's proven, age-old, time-tested meditation approaches, Transcendental Meditation, with beautiful advanced techniques, the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Program, including Yogic Flying . These are the techniques to ensure that thought is positively powerful and powerfully positive, where you can achieve anything with no exertion, no effort. That is the ultimate development of thought—doing less, doing least, doing essentially nothing but Being, and accomplishing everything that needs to be accomplished for oneself, for the entire country. The beautiful practical application of this is the Invincible America Assembly, the Invincible Holland Assembly, and the Invincible Every Country Assembly, as more and more countries rise to invincibility today under Maharishi's inspiration.’

A message for parents, who are pressuring their students because they want them to succeed so much.
Maharishi School and Maharishi University of Management, ease these parental concerns.

Dr Morris: (March 14, 2007) ‘It is very natural for parents to want the best for their children. What Maharishi has revealed to us at this time is that the best that children can have is to use the total brain potential with which they are born. And the kind of education to which parents are pushing their children with ever greater intensity does not have the effect of totally developing the brain. In fact, it has the effect of leaving functional holes in the brain and thereby creating a lack of any real foundation for the success of the children in their lives. So while seeking to create more success for their child, they are actually reducing the child's chances.

‘By contrast, consciousness-based education has as its principle feature, the technique of transcending to experience the holistic and unified state of consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness, which is the child's own Self. "Know Thyself" is fulfilled by this system of education. And this experience of the unified, holistic state of consciousness is the only experience that has been found to maximize the use of the total brain. It creates highly coherent, orderly, holistic brain functioning—the whole brain begins to function together.

‘The basis of all creativity, of all rising intelligence, and of the ability to make the laws of nature move to support one's desires to achieve anything is based on the use of the total brain. So, in consciousness-based education, every child has this joyful, sweet, soft experience first thing in the morning before class, and then again after class, and sometimes in the midst of the day, too. This is combined with an academic routine that is not stressful, that is not pressured.

‘When the students study with this more awakened brain, they are able to absorb the knowledge in a much more effortless way. The container of knowledge has been expanded. They are able to enjoy gaining knowledge and are enthusiastic to learn because of this awakening of their total brain, which is the awakening of their creativity, their receptivity, their intelligence, and their simple joy of living. The children become delighted to go to school and gain knowledge, and the teachers do not put them under the extreme pressure of exhausting homework, the horror of examinations, and all kinds of stresses and strains. It is a restful and delightful academic routine.

‘The child learns every field of knowledge in terms of its origin in the unified field of Natural Law and that all knowledge is one grand wholeness of knowledge, Total Knowledge, and that Total Knowledge is in my own Transcendental Consciousness, in my own Self. So the children feel at home with everything. They feel connected with everything they study. They feel that everything is an expression of their own consciousness in its unbounded state. Then, as the students grow up, they become Yogic Flyers with the advanced technique of Transcendental Meditation, which intensifies all the effects of Transcendental Meditation and gives them the subjective experience of bubbling bliss and big smiles of joy.

 

‘If anyone wants success for his or her children, this is what they should do. This is what they should have, either in an existing school that gets all the children to meditate or in the school your child already goes to. That is happening all over America now under Dr Hagelin's leadership. Have a new consciousness-based school in your area, and let the children grow up joyfully, peacefully, with the basis for unlimited success. They gain success not through exhaustion and stress and strain, which take away the very joy of living itself, but through soft thought, powerful thought, thought motivated by the basic intelligence that administers the universe and supports their thought to effortlessly gain fulfillment. They engage the managing intelligence of the universe to support them to achieve whatever it is that they want to achieve effortlessly, not through struggle and stress and strain.

‘Having the children of the nation grow up like this is the best security against any kind of attack or any kind of crime from within the nation. You know, there are 30,000 people murdered in the United States every year, so its not just attack from outside that is the problem. We do not need to recite all the other negative things that still exist. It is not only negativity from outside the country that one has to protect against, but negativity down the street or across the town.

‘However, when the children grow up with Consciousness-Based Education, there will be two effects. The first effect is that the children, who grow up this way, grow up in the spirit of ideal citizenship. When they live their life with a totally developed brain and on the basis of all thought and behavior from the level of the Unified Field, their actions are spontaneously in harmony with the laws of nature and with national law. They grow up without any tendency towards violent or criminal activity. So when the whole society is based upon a schooling system like that, then the children will grow up not performing either minor or major crimes of any kind and leaving aside any behaviour which brings suffering to others. This is a future when Consciousness-Based Education is universal.

‘In the short term also, in the schools that have Consciousness-Based Education, when the children begin to practice Yogic Flying at school in a group twice a day, the power of those children experiencing the Unified Field radiates intense coherence and harmony into the atmosphere around them. This is sufficient to create a phase transition in the whole quality of the collective consciousness of the neighborhood, town or city in which they live. And with such schools shining everywhere around the country, combined with the Invincibility Group in Iowa, in Maharishi Central University, and in other institutions that will come up, like here in California—all these school children radiating peace and harmony—will neutralize the daily build up of stress and strain in the atmosphere.

‘The result will be that those who used to think in a criminal way, will wake up feeling differently. In that atmosphere they will think of something positive to do instead of the damage that they were going to do. Likewise, when there is this rising harmony from the children in the schools, the whole national consciousness—as well as the people outside the United States, who right now hate the United States and want to destroy it in any why they can—will become highly harmonious and full of peace and positivity. This is what Maharishi calls an invincible state of national consciousness. Those who hated the country will, for some reason, lose their animosity although they cannot quite imagine why. They will start to feel good and loving towards the country, and all their violent tendencies towards America and Americans will evaporate.

‘This is what has happened already on many occasions through the application of these technologies and has been shown to happen by scientific research, as Dr Hagelin has explained. It is the school children of the world now who can create this kind of invincibility in America, in any other country, and in all countries of the world, just through their own joyful routine of awakening their own total brain functioning and awakening their life to be lived on the level of higher states of consciousness, on the level of the highest and supreme level of living, as the Unified Field itself. They know, "I am that field, which is the field that is expressing itself as the whole universe, and that is the level of my dignity and my power as a human being."  Jai Guru Dev.’
