Occupy Consciousness: Healing the Collective Mind
- Great article in Hufington Post (Jeanne Ball - Nov 27 2011)
"Imagine: countless numbers of people across the country, in their homes or
together in meditation halls, sitting, closing their eyes and transcending,
experiencing a level of consciousness where we're all interconnected. What if,
by silently stirring this underlying, unified field, an influence of orderliness
and cooperation could be created throughout collective consciousness --
dissolving social tensions and relieving government gridlock, stimulating
economic confidence and supporting positive change?"
She also references Maharishi, 1974:
"Our inability to see clearly is not due to some inadequate arrangement of the
objects of our vision. Although, as a result of restoring our sight, we shall be
better able to rearrange those objects, our first task is to reclaim our full
powers of seeing.
"Although there are certainly many things in the world to be put right, we shall
not be able to accomplish this humane ideal by mere reshuffling the environment.
It will never humanly succeed until we can see and appreciate that environment
at its full value, until we can envision all its possibilities with expanded
heart and mind so that they may be actualized to the advantage of everyone and
everything in nature.
