Desire and Let Go. Trust the Universe to Take Care of the Details
Wholeness: Success comes from committing to a clearly envisioned outcome and having the internal inspiration, clarity, and strength of character to realize the goal. Through Transcendental Meditation it becomes possible to put oneself steadfastly in one channel of action until the action is completed. (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living).
- Visualize, define, discuss, be clear about precisely what you want to create. “The start of activity is from the level of thinking and the start of thinking is at the level of transcendental Being” (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living).
- Commit (decide, intend, know) that you will achieve the outcome. The desire of Guru Dev to attain the Highest knowledge was not merely an ideal wish or intention; it was a mighty, overpowering determination that burned like fire in his heart, permeating every particle of his being and bade him not to rest or stop before the complete realization of the Bliss Eternal. (Maharishi, London 1961)
- Persist: View obstacles as stepping-stones, part of the process of achieving the goal. “Fixity of purpose, the backbone of action, is the most important factor in gaining the most effective and desirable results… the ability is acquired by cultivating a state of mind that is by nature not wavering and that remains concentrated and fixed on action” (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living)
- Celebrate achieving the goal. “Wherever the attention goes, it enlivens the point of attention”(Maharishi, Press Conf. 10-20-04)
