The article features an address by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from the historic lecture series—A Promise for the Family of Man: Maharishi's Lecture at Jones Hall, Houston, Texas, USA, 1972.
Bliss consciousness is the goal of all activity
'The nature of the mind is to go to a field of greater happiness. All the streams of the mind are in the direction of greater happiness, greater happiness. Deep within, the source of thought is that unbounded awareness, unbounded consciousness. Its nature is bliss.
'This bliss consciousness is the goal of all the streams of activity—the goal of all the channels of activity. Wherever one goes, whatever one does, it is in the direction of greater happiness, always. Progress is in the direction of more and more, in the direction of greater happiness. And deep at the source of thought is the unbounded bliss consciousness. And therefore the mind takes that direction spontaneously, not through practice. . . .
After emphasizing the effortless nature of Transcendental Meditation, Maharishi went on to discuss characteristics of unbounded awareness that develop through the regular practice of the technique:
Unbounded awareness spontaneously comprehends harmony in all the various aspects of living
'A calm, collected, and therefore comprehensive state of mind can take in all together so many various aspects and produce a harmony of all these aspects—all these various aspects bring out together, combined in a beautiful project. But if his mind is not able to comprehend the whole thing, he will be making something beautiful and losing something beautiful somewhere, here or there.'
