INSIGHTS FROM A POST COMBAT TRAUMATIC DISORDER SPECIALIST.
A couple of days ago I had a conversation with a Post Combat Trauma Specialist who works with military veterans and their families. It was an interesting conversation because for one, she was unaware of the integration of Transcendental Meditation into the military and secondly she was quite knowledgeable about Transcendental Meditation and it’s ‘state altering’ abilities. She stated that because Transcendental Meditation is a “state altering” meditation technique it is therefore the worst thing someone suffering from PTSD needs to be practicing as the meditation technique takes them away from the present moment, which is where sufferers of PTSD need to be. In the present.
To put it simply, when a person is suffering from PTSD, they are oftentimes stuck in the original energy of the trauma which causes them to continually and or intermittently relive the original trauma, which can lead to severe emotional and physical issues. Being in this fluctuating state, keeps a person suffering from PTSD disconnected from the present moment and they are unable to move forward and heal.
She was also unaware that Katy Perry was an avid Transcendental Meditator, although she had seen and heard a lot about her video portraying herself as a marine and that quite a few marines thought the video was great advertising in so many words.
We now have the new in Vogue-ers like Katy Perry, Russell Brand, Oprah ,Howard Stern etc..pushing this agenda forward into schools, prisons and the military for example just as the Beatles, Mia Farrow, Donovan and the in vogue-ers of their time in the 60’s who shilled on behalf of the Mahareshi.
The separation of the Beatles and the Maharishi ended somewhat abruptly (not for very long thanks to the two surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr). John Lennon was disgusted with the Maharishi after his sexual advances towards Mia Farrow and he wrote the Maharishi off after she came out of one of his meditation caves crying after the old “celibate ” guru groped her. The Maharishi said “Where are you going” as the Beatles packed up their stuff to leave the compound after the incident, John Lennon replied “if you are so fucking cosmic you should know”. This occurrence has been cited as fictitious of course by Paul McCartney and Ringo Star who continue to carry the torch for the Maharishi and T.M. via the David Lynch Foundation.
Most devout TMers are aware that it is a religious activity derived from aspects of the Hindu religion, the Mantras being names of deities which are invoked via the “secret mantra”, of which there are supposedly 7 mantras only which are divvied out by age group or something along those lines.
I watched this video on soldiers practicing T.M. and what I drew from it, is that it is being used as a programming tool, reports of being able to download information and not having to be told twice, doing better on tests, achieving higher grades. It is also stated on this video that it is “an experiment” and the practice of T.M can influence a large numbers of soldiers in a very short time.
With regard to soldiers who suffer from PTSD , T.M is a very impersonal approach, not every one has the same symptoms or experiences when it comes to PTSD. Mass meditation is a quick and easy short term fix that will not solve the emotional, mental or physical side effects associated with PTSD and will put any issues n the back burner of the practitioner. In one clip a soldier walks down a green spiral staircase which I thought was interesting seeing as this visualization is used in hypnosis to gain entry into the subconscious.
Here is another video where John Hagelin claims T.M. is not a religion which is an outright lie, the roots of T.M are derived from the Hindu religion and the mantras are named after dieties of the Hindu religion.An initiation is also involved before a person receives their mantra. He claims it is effortless which it is not, it takes effort to “empty the mind” which is one reason why it makes such an excellent programming tool. The term “Warrior” is a programming trigger phrase. Why isn’t John Hagelin wearing his crown in this video? Would soldiers think differently about the practice if they knew the truth about T.M?
I am posting this short also, I just found this and think it may help gain further insight into the global agenda of T.M, well worth watching.
