Dear fellow world-citizens,

Meditation is for inner peace and the development of yourself (or your SELF) There are however a myriad of methods. Which one is the most neutral and most effective? My choice is Transcendental meditation from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I do this 35 years already. And I would reccomend this method because I have seen and taught many other meditation methods as a health therapist. TM is unique and does what it should do: relieve from stress and infuse transcendental consciousness into your awareness that is: more clarity, more peace in mind, more creativity and more intelligence. This is what I experience.

I don't earn anything by saying this, nor do I want everybody to do TM. It is no "followers-thing" neither is it necessary for the world to be in peace (see explanation below). I remain as satisfied and as happy as I am now if you don't start to do TM. When you would come to Holland I can reccomend some really good restaurants, not because I have shares there, but because the food is good. It is in this light you should see my writings. 

To the people who believe in actions ONLY I would say:
Do you all still believe in creating peace BY DOING???. Wake up from this nightmare. Do you still believe that with hot water you can make the polar icecap grow. It is the NON-DOING which will make the difference!
Peace in eg. the middle east or in Afghanistan or in Sudan starts with peace in the minds of those in charge. And this peace we are able to create with our new insights into the functioning of the collective consciousness in that area of war independently of those who create that war!

I am not asking for a peace attitude, or thinking of peace or hoping for peace or even meditating on peace. It is something, but it is by far not enough. There is neither historic evidence nor scientific evidence that this will work. There is however both historic evidence and scientific evidence that the transcendental meditation together with the TM-Sidhi program has the desired effect. Only a very small fraction of the number of people in war need to do that program. These people (TM-practitioners) can even be brought in from outside!
Read the details on this in my petition to the governments in war.
Please sign this petition as the results will be sent to the Palestine and newly formed Israelian government.

Here WE as the people have the power to create peace! We need not to be victims of the decisions of our governments, we are able to take our fate of the world in our own hands!

Thank you very much,
Hein Brik.

Dear fellow citizens of the Global Country of World Peace,

Raise your voice against those who still believe in creating peace with arms. Wake them up from this nightmare. They still believe that with hot water you can make the polar icecap grow.

Peace in eg. the middle east starts with peace in the minds of those in charge. And THIS PEACE we are able to create with our new insights into the functioning of the collective consciousness in that area of war.

Read the details on this in my petition to the governments in war. Please sign this petition as the results will be sent to them.

WHY?? read the letter below

Guaranteed and lasting peace without weapons....

This is the final answer on: "STOP THE VIOLENCE IN GAZA"
Today, every nation is vulnerable. Even the mightiest nations are held hostage by small terrorist groups (11th of september 2001). Conventional military approaches are increasingly powerless to protect a nation against terrorist attack, against new destructive technologies, or against missiles with pinpoint accuracy.

Diplomatic efforts might have effect for a period of time, but when tensions rise hostilities start again as we have seen in the Gaza strip, Lebanon, the Balkan and in Iraq. In a world divided by deep-seated hostilities and regional tensions, negotiated settlements and ceasefires have brought temporary relief, at best!! Paper treaties and negotiations among representatives of warring nations are too fragile a basis for lasting peace.

How, then, can we achieve lasting peace and protect the security, stability, and well-being of every nation? According to recent research, traditional approaches to defense have less effect if they do not address the underlying cause of violence and conflict: they do not relieve the acute political, ethnic, and religious tensions that fuel terrorism and conflict. During the last 25 years, a powerful, innovative approach to peace has been extensively field tested in the Middle East (Lebanon Israel), and throughout the world. A small number of people, compared to the society in which they operate, participated in a collective practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programmes. These groups of several hundred to several thousand trained experts appeared to quickly neutralize acute societal stress in a society of a few millions to several 100s of millions of people.
The result has been dramatic reductions in terrorism, war and other social violence. One example: (see picture on the left), the quality of life ie. peace negotiations, decrease of victims and of war-activities go up and down with the group size. These findings have been replicated, published in leading academic journals, and endorsed by hundreds of independent scientists and scholars. The efficacy of this approach has now grown beyond question. But because it isn t a sexy approach to "close your eyes to reduce a conflict" politicians and even leaders of nations still like to rely on smart negotiations and the use of high technology weapons to try to establish a democracy. They hold it for the only possible way to establish and maintain peace. This is where you and I may book tangible results in promoting these peace-creating groups!

This group practice of the TM- and TM-Sidhi programmes is a practical approach to world peace, an approach validated by more than 50 replications and 23 studies published in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals. The most advanced discoveries in the fields of quantum mechanics, neuroscience, and human consciousness support this approach of using the human consiousness to eliminate stress in the collective consciousness.

The results are:
- Creation of a fertile environment in which diplomatic and other conventional approaches will carry lasting results

- Creation of a coherent and harmonious national consciousness, strengthening the nation against any potentially disruptive influences from outside or from within

- Creation of a peaceful and cooperative global environment, conducive to the formation of stable governments and the cessation of hostilities in regional hot spots

- The elimination of enmity in a potential adversary, thus preventing the birth of an enemy and the onset of war

- Establishment of lasting peace, security, and economic stability at home, relieving tremendous pressure on governmental departments and institutions charged with public safety and homeland security

PS. please don't see my plea as using you as a means to promote a campaign for a "TM-movement" or a "Maharishi Movement". I was a health practitioner with a health spa for a long time and since two years I am a school director. I absolutely don't do this for the money or the honour or whatever. I won't gain a penny out of it and if you won't promote these ideas, it is all right with me, I will remain as happy as I was. I only satisfied my conscience in passing through these ideas to you for I am deeply convinced that they will work. I myself participated in some of these groups and noticed the results.
