Speaking during the celebration by the Global Mother Divine Organization of the new lady teachers of Transcendental Meditation, Louise Allison, a teacher of Transcendental Meditation from Laguna Beach, California, speaks about teaching this technique—‘the greatest blessing of my life,’ she called it.
Allison has been teaching the technique for over thirty years and 'it has been, and it continues to be the greatest blessing in my life,' she said.
Allison quoted Maharishi's expression 'The teacher gains more than the student,' explaining that when one teaches Transcendental Meditation, the student gains Transcendental Consciousness, the fourth major state of consciousness, while the teacher rises in the values of Cosmic Consciousness (the state in which Transcendental Consciousness is maintained alongside the three states usually experienced--waking, dreaming, and deep sleep*).
'This has been a very real experience for me,' Allison continued. 'It's very beautiful—always moving in Maharishi's Supreme Knowledge and sharing the highest and only true values in life: giving love and joy and wisdom to others.
'I find that when I'm doing this all the time, the bliss grows exponentially,' she said. 'You meet so many different, beautiful people from many different backgrounds and all walks of life. Each one is brought to a higher level of happiness and peace and success and freedom.'
A lady that Allison taught recently was amazed at the depth of silence she was experiencing after the first day. She kept laughing and described her experience over and over again, saying that she felt this 'profound calm.'
At the end of her initial course in Transcendental Meditation, the lady asked what are some of the signposts of enlightenment? She realized that one of the signposts is something she was experiencing—profound silence in the midst of dynamic activity.
Allison commented that now the teachers of Transcendental Meditation are finding that those coming for instruction are having experiences of Cosmic Consciousness. 'What an amazing gift it is, I feel,' Allison said, 'to be a part of such an awakening. . . . Never before in the long corridor of time has such an opportunity been available.
'To become a teacher of Transcendental Meditation has been a gift for me precious beyond words.'
Allison encouraged all those who have a desire to become a teacher of Transcendental Meditation: 'Hold on to it and follow it,' she said. She quoted Maharishi's expression, 'Go ahead, run fast, evolve and enjoy!'
* Maharishi explains that beyond the familiar states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping are four higher states of consciousness—Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness; each bringing a new dimension of physiological functioning, experience, knowledge, and fulfilment.
