This is the 4th day of the third month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
4 September 2006
Today is Labour Day in Canada and the financial markets are closed, but we'll start with a positive overview on labour in Canada by the Globe and Mail:
The Globe and Mail—How is working life on this Labour Day? (4 September 2006): Labour productivity is rising. The economy is growing . . . . Unemployment is hovering near record lows . . . . Canadians are working more efficiently . . . .'Over all, the robust labour market is extremely positive for workers,' says Andrew Sharpe, executive director of the Ottawa-based Centre for the Study of Living Standards.
In a report last week, TD Bank economist David Tulk was upbeat about the next 16 months. He calculated that the pace of job creation . . . will leave the unemployment rate around 6.4 per cent. In other words, the good times will likely keep rolling for the work force.
Mr. Sharpe . . . speculates that wages could soon increase more rapidly. . . . [but]statistics on wages alone do not tell the whole story. Today's workers have so many more consumer products, such as home computers, within reach. Life is easier.
The Toronto Star—Goldcorp, Glamis create giant (1 September 2006): Goldcorp Inc plans to buy Reno-based rival Glamis Gold Ltd. in a friendly, $8.6 billion (US) stock deal . . . the new company will have proven and probable reserves of about 41.1 million ounces of gold, worth about $25 billion at current prices, with 11,000 employees . . . and be headquartered in Vancouver.
A story on this same topic in the International Herald Tribune reported:
The deal would be the second largest ever in the gold mining industry . . . [and] the combined Goldcorp would be the world's fifth-largest gold producer . . . .
The Toronto Star—Tories get ready to tackle toxic chemicals (2 September 2006): . . . officials in the federal environment and health departments are to reveal which among 23,000 chemical compounds used for years in Canada pose the biggest toxic danger to people or ecosystems . . . action on toxic chemicals is included in the first phase of the Harper government's Green Plan II . . . . At the core of Green Plan II lies a heavy emphasis on tough regulation rather than the kind of voluntary compliance typically followed by the federal environment department.
Says Bea Olivastri, who heads the Canadian office of Friends of the Earth: 'The talk on compliance, enforcement and accountability is stronger language politically than we've heard for some time.'
The Globe and Mail—How green is my Calgary (4 September 2006): Even in the middle of this power-packed economic boom, Calgary remains committed to ecological conservation.
Within Calgary's city limits are some amazing parks . . . . The term 'natural capital' has been used to describe those tranquil parks, forests, rivers, wetlands, and grasslands, within an urban centre, that make city life more enjoyable.
The economics of urban natural capital can also be seen in real estate values. Research shows that property values of Calgary houses immediately adjacent to green space are at least 20 per cent higher than similar homes that don't have the same green space amenity.
The Winnipeg Sun—Manitoba to host national wind energy conference (1 September 2006): Manitoba will welcome more than 1,000 delegates to Winnipeg 22-25 October for the national Canadian Wind Energy Association conference, the largest conference in the organization's history . . . .
Manitoba has been honoured with three awards for its commitment to clean, renewable energy. The province was recently recognised by BusinessWeek magazine as the top jurisdiction in the world for combating climate change and was acknowledged by the David Suzuki Foundation for having the strongest climate change strategy in Canada. The Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance commended the province for leading the country in energy efficiency.
And finally, a West Coast success story:
The Toronto Star—Fairytale comeback for Briticsh Columbia film industry (2 September 2006): . . . in 2005, the industry came roaring back to life . . . . And it appears that 2006 will be even better. Production spending is up 23 per cent from the same time last year.
Why has the BC industry managed to prosper—indeed, thrive—against the backdrop of a 90-cent (US) loonie . . . ?
The strategy of diversifying the range and scope of production—from feature blockbusters and low-budget TV movies to domestically produced documentaries and cartoons—has paid off for BC. It will pay off even more in the future.
These are a few of the news reports reflecting Canada's rising invincibility from the growing Yogic Flying groups across Canada.
Creating national invincibility
Groups of experts in Yogic Flying are engaged in creating coherent national consciousness in Canada, the Netherlands, United States, Hamsa (Hungary), and an increasing number of other nations, which are enjoying a dramatic and sustained upsurge in positive economic and social trends.
Extensive research published in the world's leading scientific journals has found that the group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme Yogic Flying by the square root of one per cent of a population is sufficient to reduce negative trends, including crime and violence, and to promote positive economic and social tendencies throughout society.
The cost to train and employ such a group is a small fraction of what any government spends on its military in a single day.
Maharishi's approach to invincibility is in sharp contrast to the conventional military approach. 'Our approach does not require the government to sacrifice the youth for the sake of the nation—because when the youth are killed in war, then for whom is the nation?' Maharishi said.
The harmony and progress of the human race are founded on the internal harmony and progress of every individual. No stress, no strain, no impediment, no difficulty can withstand the totally benign influence of the enlivenment of the Unified Field of Natural Law, the field of Transcendental Consciousness, the field of pure knowledge, through Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme.
