Group meditation using the TM-Sidhi programme has been proven to restore peace in conflict zones in as little as 24 hours. Sign our petition to persuade world leaders to support a group of 3,000 TM-Sidhas for the Middle East
President Putin has just launched 26 cruise missiles against rebel groups in Syria threatening to escalate the existing war and spread it across the Middle East. Over 200,000 people have already died in Syria.
Iran and Saudi Arabia are increasingly being drawn into the conflict. Iraq is in turmoil again, Europe and Turkey are being inundated with refugees trying to escape annihilation at the hands of the Syrian Government and Islamic state, and it looks like millions more are on their way.
There are further eruptions of violence between the Israelis and Palestinians, the civil war in the Yemen is further threatening stability in the Arabian peninsular and Hezbollah and Islamic state are fighting in Lebanon.
Time is off the essence
We are in a very dangerous situation; world leaders seem to have run out of options and are at a loss to know what to do to restore peace and order. Conventional armed intervention failed to stabilise Iraq and Afghanistan, despite the US spending $1.5 trillion over a ten-year period and further military action risks a further escalation of the conflict that could plunge the world into the abyss.
We urgently need a large group of meditators to calm down the conflict
There is however a new and highly cost effective way to quickly bring peace and stability to the Middle East. Group meditation using the TM-Sidhi programme has been proven time and time again in peace projects around the world and even proven in controlled research studies. Whether governments, security agencies and the media believe it or not, the simple fact is that, groups of specially trained meditators using an advanced form of Transcendental Meditation calm down the fighting and hostility almost immediately when deployed in a conflict zone. Sometimes, the fighting stops, in as little as twenty-four hours.
The research is so extensive that John Hegelin a renowned quantum physicist is quoted as saying, "There is more evidence that the group practice of Transcendental Meditation can turn off war like a light switch than there is that aspirin reduces headache pain". In fact, this approach is so consistent, specific and measurable that we can predict that we need about 3,000 TM-Sidhas to trigger a rapid step change in positivity and harmony for the whole Middle East. Amazing as it sounds, this peaceful effect requires no physical, social or political interaction between the meditating group and the host population. Using group meditation the peace process is activated from the level of the collective consciousness discreetly, spontaneously and in silence.
Unfortunately, group meditation as a peace initiative, although easy enough to arrange, still appears bizarre and unreal to most people. Tragically this has meant that not one government in the G7 has had the courage to consider adopting this approach. Always looking to the next election, politicians and their advisors don’t want to appear ridiculous and they refuse see what they don’t already believe in.
Now is the time for you to show our political leaders your support for this new way to restore peace by signing our petition on the Avaaz website. Help persuade them to open their eyes, try something new and something that works and so end the madness. With public support, what have they got to lose? Lets face it; the apparent options open to them are all unpleasant, costly and difficult and also tend to perpetuate the suffering of the innocent. Whatever else our governments do is likely to make the conflict worse and there is now a serious risk of escalation with other Middle Eastern countries hardening their attitudes and feeling the need to join in the fighting. It seems more and more likely that the western nations will start to commit ground forces in the region and we can guess that this is going to be opposed by a resurgent Russian military.
The prospects for peace look grim. So, being too embarrassed to try new ideas is no longer an acceptable or responsible option if we want to maintain peace in the Middle East and prevent terrorism and chaos in Europe.
The challenge is to bring enough meditators together in one place in or near the Middle East, and this is where international help is needed. But the beauty of using groups of TM-Sidhas to bring peace is that no one feels defeated. Everyone wins. It is literally a fact that from one spot in or near the Middle East we can create a beautiful influence of coherence and harmony in the collective consciousness, which will radiate around the whole region.
Even the cost of keeping a residual garrison of 5,000 soldiers in Iraq is currently $1.95 billion per year just to prevent the Iraqi government from collapsing. At a tiny fraction of this cost a group of expert meditators would bring peace to the whole of the Middle East region and, if kept in place, would end the brutality and bloodshed on a permanent basis.
“I think the claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of any other ongoing social or psychological research program. It has survived a broader array of statistical tests than most research in the field of conflict resolution.
This work and the theory that informs it deserve the most serious consideration by academics and policy makers alike.”
