The article explores an emerging form of 'global patriotism' in keeping with the concept that a harmonious, peaceful world is neither a new nor an unachievable ideal.
In his Commencement address to the 2010 graduating class of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, Stephen Collins charged students to be patriotic in 2010 by promoting sustainable living and by making a particular programme—which can both strengthen one's nation and simultaneously nourish all other nations—well known and a living reality.
Mr Collins, a distinguished American actor, writer, director, musician, philantropist, and long-time participant of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programmes, spoke of the Maharishi Effect of coherence in collective consciousness, produced by groups of people practising these technologies of consciousness, including Yogic Flying.
The article points out that, as practitioners of Transcendental Meditation, MUM students have directly experienced a deep peace within themselves, and have enjoyed a peaceful, blissful, nourishing community. Now, Mr Collins suggests, it is their responsibility to share the knowledge they have gained to create a peaceful world—to 'get the word out' about the Maharishi Effect, which in groups of sufficient size have been found to create an influence of coherence, harmony, and peace on a global scale.
