In the Global Press Conference on 14 March, Dr John Hagelin answered a question from the press about Transcendental Meditation and the power of thought and positive thinking.
As we have seen from Maharishi's wisdom, said Dr Hagelin, human awareness or human thought, at its deepest, transcendental or para level, which means beyond articulated, linguistic thought—beyond the finer and finer fields of thought—is the Unified Field, the basis of mind and matter.
'At that level of thought, the level of Being, the level of consciousness, the para level of thought, that is the Unified Field,' Dr Hagelin said, 'and the whole universe is its expression....'
'So to the extent we are thinking at that para level of the Unified Field,' said Dr Hagelin, '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.'
Maharishi describes and emphasizes the importance of spontaneous fulfillment of desire, and more importantly, teaches how to entertain a desire at that absolute level. The mechanics of that are the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, Dr. Hagelin continued.
'The body lifting up in the air through mere impulse of thought; the response of the physiology to a mere impulses of thought is demonstrated very clearly in the Yogic Flying phenomenon itself.'
So Maharishi is the master of the science of Yog, the science of Being, the science of thinking from the level of Being, Dr Hagelin said, where the whole universe is our extended physiology and where Nature not just within our own physiology, but throughout the environment, responds to our impulse of thought.
'So thought can be incredibly powerful,' said Dr Hagelin, 'and at that deepest level, when developed properly through practice, the ability to entertain desire within that absolute, omnipresent field, stirring the totality of the laws of nature—when that is established, literally it is possible to fulfil desires instantly; to achieve anything by mere impulse of thought.
'The speed of fulfillment of thought just has to do with how proficient we are in entertaining that thought on the absolute level, where Total Natural Law and all possibilities are a reality.'
