This letter is a delayed Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Although the audience was small in number [at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa], your talk has left a lasting impression on those present, and your wisdom has spread out into the community. I still hear you quoted in both small and large groups, at meetings where there is disagreement, and in conversations in restaurants. You touched us in a meaningful way.
Comments you made that come to mind: "All conflict can be placed on a line with fear at one end and no-fear [love] at the other. Our attitudes and thoughts are energy, and they move the air around us. Be as gentle as possible. Disturbance keeps you vital; you are more alive when responding to circumstances. You don't create peace; it is inherent naturally; you allow it. Get rid of the 'Us Against Them' Mentality. You cannot swim against a powerful river. Watch it for awhile; then pick a spot on the opposite side, aim at it, and the current will help get you there. The level of consciousness that creates the problem is not the level of consciousness that can solve the problem. Allow change; it is a universal constant."
I've spent many hours reading your web page, and really appreciate the time it takes to put all your thoughts in writing, and then to share them with the world.
So, just want to say "Thank You" for all that you offer the world.
