8 November 2006

NRC Handelsblad: 'Colour of new Cabinet has no influence on the financial world' - According to the credit agency Moody, for the financial world it does not matter which coalition is formed after the upcoming parliament elections of 22 November conclude. Moody expects that the structural reforms of the Dutch economy will be continued 'independent of the coalition of the new government'.

Het Financieele Dagblad: 'Netherlands better than neighbours. Moody's expects long-lasting economic growth' - The Netherlands stands at the beginning of a long period of economic growth, which could be faster than in many other European countries. The good prospects are mainly due to Holland's own efforts: Government has curbed expenses, salaries have been moderated, and social security has been made unattractive. Now that the economy is improving worldwide, Holland can profit from its sound financial position and grow stronger.

Het Financieele Dagblad: 'Damrak, main street of Amsterdam, is fuller than ever' - Amsterdam expects to receive more visitors this year than ever. Amsterdam Bureau for Tourism and Congresses (ATCB) expects a 5% increase in the number of tourists in 2006. With over 8.5 million hotel nights, Amsterdam can write down a new record in its books.

Het Financieele Dagblad: 'Max van der Stoel honoured in the UK' - The Dutch ex-minister of Foreign Affairs and High Commissioner of Minorities of the United Nations will be receiving a British royal decoration for his 'immense personal contribution to the reduction of the tensions between minorities in Central and Eastern Europe.' He will become Knight Commander of The Order of Saint Michael and Saint George.

Het Financieele Dagblad: 'Society earns financial benefits from reintegration' - The efforts to get the unemployed, sick, and disabled back to work is financially benefiting society. The costs are €0.7 billion, the yield €1.8 billion. This remarkable finding comes from a report by the Foundation of Economic Research (SEO), and will be presented today to the Minister of Social Affairs.

De Telegraaf: 'Back to nature. Hospital in Groningen keeps artificial colours out of food' - Patients in St Lucas Hospital in Wintschoten will receive 'optimal healthy food' in consideration of the increasing number of people who are allergic or oversensitive to these substances. In the near future, they would like to introduce organic food as well.

De Telegraaf: 'Full tank for Africa' - For five years, Willem Pronk from Waddinxveen has operated a gas station whereby the profits are used for good causes. By pumping gas at the inexpensive gas station, customers are also supporting dozens of organizations all over the world. In addition, he has currently founded Finance Foundation Proplan, which supports organizations that are not fully self-sufficient in the execution of their projects. The foundation mainly supports projects in Africa.

De Telegraaf: 'Top man of Tom Tom wants to help the poor' - Pieter Geelen, one of the four founders of Tom Tom, a successful car navigation company, donated €100 million to the Turing Foundation, which wants to spend annually €5 million on various causes such as: the environment, leprosy, the arts and education. 'These are positive, constructive goals to spend one's money on. Education, especially in developing countries, is a sustainable and also respectful way to help people further,' Geelen comments.

Creating national invincibility

Groups of experts in Yogic Flying are engaged in creating coherent national consciousness in the Netherlands, United States, Canada, Hamsa (Hungary), and an increasing number of other nations, which are enjoying a dramatic and sustained upsurge in positive economic and social trends.

Dr Paul Gelderloos, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace for the Netherlands, reports that 400 Yogic Flyers have been assembled at MERU, the Netherlands, since 12 April 2006.

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.
