Today is the 31st day of the seventh month of national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

11 November 2006

De Telegraaf: 'State has billions windfall. Zalm: More tax received from industry' - The Cabinet has, just before the elections, a dream budget. Thanks to a windfall of € 1.7 billion the country has extra money, which decreases the State debt to the lowest level in 25 years. 'In the autumn budget that I have made it becomes clear that it is even going better than expected,' says Finance Minister Zalm. The budget surplus is already 0.4% of the Gross National Product. In September, 0.1% was calculated.

De Telegraaf: 'Pioneering with nature. Bio-safe checks planned in river areas' - For the first time, an exhaustive computer model has been built that can verify the impact of the different measures that need to be taken to address the risks of high water levels. Now experts think more in terms of giving water free room to flood certain areas, rather than to heighten the dikes.

De Telegraaf: 'Tata-boss believes in spiritual value of Corus' - A chief-executive of the Indian conglomerate Tata was guest of honour at the Brussels symposium about spiritual and cultural entrepreneurship, and received the first 'Ethics in Business' award. Top man TR Doongaji explained that the takeover of Corus is not an acquisition but a partnership. He explained 'If we did not believe in the cultural and spiritual values of the company, then we would have not done it.'

De Telegraaf: 'Over one quarter of all coffee meets environmental standards' - One out of four cups of coffee in Holland comply to a list of environmental demands and have been bought for a fair price from coffee bean farmers. In 2002, that percentage was only 3%, now it is already up to 27.8% says researcher Sjoerd Panhuysen of the Coffee Coalition, a cooperation between Novib, Solidaridad and labour unions. The growth spurt comes mainly from the many supermarkets that now comply to these standards.

De Telegraaf: 'Gray wave promises gold for economy of Limburg' - According to Deputy Economics of Limburg, Martin Eurlings, there are enormous opportunities ahead for the increasingly large senior population. 'The silver generation offers golden opportunities for entrepreneurs with guts.' He refers to the areas of health, wellness, and care, which have become focus points for the province.

Trouw: 'The Left talks about decency' - Not only Christian Democrats, but also the Left parties plead for more respect and decorum. Also, they are talking about norms and values.

NRC Handelsblad: 'Almost all youngsters on Internet' - In no other EU country do youngsters spend so much time on the Internet as Holland. Of the youth between 16 and 24 years of age, 96% surf minimally once per week on the Internet, versus 73% for the EU average. Also, the proportion of people on the Internet is highest, 80% of the people, of whom 80% have broadband. European average is 50%.

NRC Handelsblad: 'Looking for 'green' vacation? Ecotourism is growing and with that the need for reliable green travel standards.' - Ecotourism is growing three times as fast as other forms of tourism. At the same time, luxury is in demand, and the combination of the two makes an interesting business case.

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.
