On 16 February 2011 The Huffington Post reported:
Scientific research shows that group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme can create a powerful positive influence on the collective consciousness of society.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
'The term ''collective consciousness'' has been used to refer to the overall social atmosphere that arises from the thought and behavior of all the individual members of a community or society,' the article states.
A 'scientific understanding of how interconnected we all really are—with one another and the universe—is just now coming to light,' the article continues.
The article quotes 'quantum physicist John Hagelin,* a forerunner in that exceedingly intricate, leading-edge area of science called ''unified field theory.'' '
'What we've discovered at the foundation of the universe is a universal field where all the forces and particles of nature are united as one,' Dr Hagelin explains. 'They are ripples on a single ocean of existence.'
'Our minds profoundly mirror the hierarchical structure of nature,' Dr Hagelin continues in the article. 'We can dive within to deeper levels of mind, accessing more powerful levels of thought and ultimately the unified field itself, the most powerful, limitless, universal level of our own consciousness.'
Meditation can be a 'technology for peace and social change,' the article states. There are 'numerous studies on the Transcendental Meditation technique that measure, using advanced statistical analysis, the power of group meditation to change the social climate.' As Dr Hagelin goes on to explain, '. . . when unity is enlivened in the individual, unity is enlivened everywhere. This is a field effect of consciousness.'
'Meditation is a means for each of us to make a powerful, personal contribution to the collective peace and coherence,' the article concludes, 'strengthening life in the way that's needed most—from within.'
