Educators in Holland are increasingly interested in Consciousness-Based Education. Other indications of national invincibility include decreased traffic fatalities, closing of eight prisons because they are so empty, and news that citizens of Holland are amongst the happiest of 30 countries analyzed around the world.
Ideal Consciousness-Based Education has been a primary focus in Holland, as Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had emphasized its importance, said Dr Paul Gelderloos, National Director of Invincible Holland for the Global Country of World Peace.
The number of schools taking advantage of this programme is expanding, with several hundred students now enjoying Consciousness-Based Education.
Administrators of these new Consciousness-Based schools are 'even more enthusiastic and optimistic than we are' about offering the Transcendental Meditation Programme and Yogic Flying to students everywhere, Dr Gelderloos commented.
There have recently been other indications of the coherence, harmony, and rising positivity in national life generated by the country's large group of Yogic Flyers, Dr Gelderloos said.
Last month an analysis of 30 countries around the world by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) showed that 85.1% of the people in Holland are satisfied with their life at present and 88.2% are optimistic about their future. Holland was found to be the third happiest of participating countries—after Denmark and Finland.
Dr Gelderloos reported that traffic fatalities continue to decrease, and the number of prison inmates has gone down so significantly that eight prisons in the Netherlands will be closing.
Maharishi always appreciated this kind of news—because he predicted that with higher coherence, accidents and crime would decrease, Dr Gelderloos said.
