The Politics of Change, a Chinese Perspective
23/03/2011, Redux 08/02/2020
After writing this article in 2011 and now seeing the changing tides sweep through Hong Kong – I believe we are seeing the seeds for change which one ingested into the main hierarchy of the mainland Chinese, and critical mass of thinking perhaps will result in greater changer.
— Consider the 100th monkey theory and morphic resonance.
It’s been an interesting journey for China in the last few years since I wrote this brief post on my old Body Electronics group. I feel that a gradual, slow and sure will of people are making changes for the positive China.
It’s not just people in China but the world that are pushing together from a position of collective will to form a cohesive spirit of reform. A pebble drops into the ocean and it’s ripples travel to the far shores of the universe. It then starts the long journey back. (2)
I believe that we are seeing the result of the ‘Maharishi Effect’ in full swing,(3) when out of nowhere it seems as if Hong Kong is in crisis where the streets are full of people protesting for new freedoms.
My thoughts are that it is not the end game that is important, but that people continue to lobby for efforts of freedom from a position of them already being completed. (4)
What I mean, is, to be sure that we are focusing from a position of new freedoms already having been completed in our minds. As, if we do not we then create it’s opposite through resistance.
Therefore, focus, through social activism for change, yet keep the eye into the consciousness to recreate and free the minds of mental resistance simultaneously. This we see the cycle of Yin/Yang being completed.
God Speed to Hong Kong freedoms, and may the freeing of resistance and combined activity of social change calve a new path of freedoms for it’s people.
There is a growing movement within the rise of social consciousness via the Internet in China.(1) The question remains; will we see an Arab spring movement in China? (- soon?) And, can this be stopped if it does happen?
I think times are a changing in China and with the rise of global awareness ‘within and out’ of Chinese authoritarian rule, things will meet a ‘critical mass’ of awareness and, change, where an inevitable revolution, will happen – namely, a Neo-Liberal movement, is on the horizon.
Perhaps we can see the horizon, but, we can’t touch it …. just yet.
How does the global effect of collective consciousness change ‘affect’ the minds of people within China?
In response to a comment from a reader:
I think you’re referring to things in a way of simply ‘observing’ the outer conditions of mankind, without a solution. Namely, in manner of simultaneously viewing the inner essence. We can point to the outer, and talk “about it”, but our job, is to recreate the resistance, firstly, then to make appropriate changes in the outer world.
Collectively as we rise up through the level of the effect, we naturally rebel against a system, which we are resisting, and creating, call it what you will throughout each decade, but the principles are the same.
The Internet, is the vehicle, of what I would associate with the “doingness” of the “collective consciousness” of a geo-specific locale. Or, to put another way, the medium of communication which has a preponderance at the present time. As with time, the medium will change, ie, from press, to the digital age… to what?
The trends and data show us that there are over 700 million Internet users in China. The question I have put out, is, when this critical mass of people starts to create a coherent message of change, when will it happen, which I think it may do, and, could it be stopped by the government, if it does.
Remember, we project our thinking into the universe, which, it reflects back to us. As we change our thinking, so does this projection change. If we are pointing to the effect, or outer world, as I’ve suggested, and we do not view simultaneously the inner essence, we actually perpetuate the outer condition….because, we are “resisting” it.

(https://www.mum.edu/about-mum/consciousness-based-education/tm-research/maharishi-effect>; Note that in the work of Body Electronics it is understood that the square root of 1% of a group relevant to consciousness change taking place then critical mass is achieved. Notwithstanding, if coherence is achieved through TM, then it has a similar effect, however consciousness change still needs to take place. In the later case we are seeing the inertia changed through coherence of exceeding the upper parameters of the wave cycle of vibration in this area of consideration. Simply put, if people change their minds on a mass scale then it is permanent, if is through collective meditation and/or manipulation, one can conject that this said consciousness change still needs to take place, however the choices are arguably available, and achievable and maintainable through TM. Although TM is a form of Jhanic meditation(meditation with Seed), if people able to view the effect whilst creating a cause, then resistance can be recreated and released, although this activity is more more complicated then the 'Healing Crisis'. Nonetheless, it is possible, as when we focus our attention on an ideal, the resistance to this ideal is brought to the attention to be transmuted.
