Group Meditations in Brussels
TO CREATE A COHERENT COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS

DURING CRUCIAL EU SUMMIT MEETINGS



Our aim is to reach 108 participants, which is the square root of 1% of the population of Brussels.





The Maharishi Invincibility Centre in Brussels is very strategically located only a few hundred meters from the conference hall of the EU Leaders.





The meditating Assemblies start early in the morning on Thursdays, so it is recommended that participants arrive in Brussels on Wednesday evenings. The Assemblies end on Sundays after lunch. This course is offered for free. We can help you find suitable accommodation. To apply, send your email to ***@maharishi.net mailto:***@maharishi.net
Looking forward to welcoming at least 108 Yogic Flyers in Brussels on all these occasions – please bring one or two friends!

I am missing the input of nablusoss1008 here on things like this. Nablusoss was one of the few practitioners to bring their content over here and defend it.


I would hope Nablusoss could feel safe enough here now to come back on and help keep us informed of developments like this. I should suspect that he would be in Brussels for a peace project like this.

I asked someone here today who is a real deal siddha if they would go to Brussels to meditate with the group. [?] Their response was that the Unified Field is in every heart, there is not need for this person to go. This person will meditate with them here. -JaiGuruYou

Achieving societal peace in a nation or a region torn by deep-seated political and religious tensions is historically difficult—especially given the underlying physiological root cause of social violence: acute and pervasive societal stress. Without addressing the buildup of acute societal stress, standard approaches to conflict resolution are unlikely to succeed. However, once such tensions have been substantially defused, achieving and maintaining societal peace becomes comparatively easy.

Research shows that war and social conflict are fueled by acute societal stress—mounting political, ethnic and religious tensions among rival factions that, if unchecked, inevitably erupt as social violence. Research similarly shows that it is possible to effectively defuse such acute societal tensions through the use of powerful, stress-reducing, peace-promoting technologies by a small fraction of the population, most commonly within the military or in schools or universities.

Unfortunately, the options available to our military and political leaders to resolve these crises are poor. Economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure are ineffective against terrorism. And military responses can further antagonize and enflame an already volatile population, leading to retaliation and greater terrorism—the inevitable consequence of attempting to create peace through violence. How, then, can such dangerous and complex threats be resolved?

Military solutions are not always futile. We beat the living crap out of the Nazis and Japanese, pounded them into submission and haven't heard a peep out of them since.

The leaders of Europe, Russia, and the U.S. have been struggling to find appropriate and effective responses to the terrorist attacks in France—and to the ongoing conflicts in Syria and elsewhere.

Fortunately, there is a better solution—an innovative, peaceful, proven approach with a superior track record.


Economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure are ineffective against terrorism. And military responses can further antagonize and enflame an already volatile population, leading to retaliation and greater terrorism—the inevitable consequence of attempting to create peace through violence.

Unfortunately, the options available to our military and political leaders to resolve these crises are poor. Economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure are ineffective against terrorism. And military responses can further antagonize and enflame an already volatile population, leading to retaliation and greater terrorism—the inevitable consequence of attempting to create peace through violence. How, then, can such dangerous and complex threats be resolved?

Back_For_More, yours is a forbearing sympathy expressed here that seems a very kind understanding of folks here. In fact there are still quite a lot of good people here who would like to see it endure and work out on merit. There are some zealots around that can stand out who can take it too far too. Both ways TM is relatively a small group now compared to decades ago. But still Fairfield is a really nice place to live and meditate.


I ran across an old glossy movement publication in a used bookstore here from your time of the 1970's and 80's with the metrics country-by-country on how the world-wide movement was doing in numbers then. Is kind of eye-opening by contrast to remember the scope of things then. Your Canada was doing pretty well by metrics back then, spiritually speaking, by the numbers then. I'll transcribe some of it later. The scale of the attrition in so many aspects from then is a sobering problem for the existing leadership.



However, even on the late 'Invincible America Assembly' course that folded up here recently the Canadian Meditators were present in strength with quite a few who moved down here from back in 2006 when that long meditation course was conceived. It is kind of an empty place without them here now. Jai Canada!

On the individual level, published research has shown that certain powerful stress reducing methods can neutralize even severe stress, including post-traumatic stress (PTS), within days—calming hyperactivity in the amygdala (“fear center” of the brain) and restoring balanced brain functioning in servicemen and -women, veterans, and victims of violence in war-torn areas.

Fortunately, there is a better solution—an innovative, peaceful, proven approach with a superior track record.



Economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure are ineffective against terrorism.

Research shows that war and social conflict are fueled by acute societal stress—mounting political, ethnic and religious tensions among rival factions that, if unchecked, inevitably erupt as social violence.

However, once such tensions have been substantially defused, achieving and maintaining societal peace becomes comparatively easy.

On a societal scale, the approach of restoring calm and quelling social violence through the use of similar techniques by small embedded groups in society has been extensively field tested—in the Middle East and throughout the world. The consistent result has been marked reductions in terrorism, war, and social violence in the affected populations. These findings have been replicated in more than 50 studies, published in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals, and endorsed by hundreds of leading scientists and scholars. The efficacy of this approach is scientifically beyond question.

Effects of Group Practice of the Transcendental Meditation Program on Preventing Violent Crime in Washington, DC: Results of the National Demonstration Project, June-July 1993...
“Given the strength of these results, their consistency with the positive results of previous research, the grave human and financial costs of violent crime, and the lack of other effective and scientific methods to reduce crime, policy makers are urged to apply this approach on a large scale for the benefit of society.” Hagelin, J.S., Rainforth, M.V., Orme-Johnson, D.W., Cavanaugh, K. L., Alexander, C.N., Shatkin, S.F., Davies, J.L, Hughes, A.O, and Ross, E. 1999. Effects of group practice of the Transcendental Meditation program on preventing violent crime in Washington D.C.: Results of the National Demonstration Project, June-July, 1993.

FF is a wonderful little town. Any place where you can walk to every store you require is okay in my books. The weather is a downer, however, and the distance from a big vibrant city is also a downside (although IC is pleasant enough). But, tree-lined streets and older home styles with all the charm of early 20th C architectural features is also a plus. Add that to a law abiding community where locals and meditators mingle and it is all fine. It wouldn't be the last place on the planet I'd choose, that's for sure but you wouldn't catch me at any of those new agey gatherings investigating the latest flying saucer glimpsing or listening to Wanda Cosmo Knowitall communicating via celestial vibrations with my higher self.

The likelihood that these combined results were due to chance is less than one part in 1019, making this effect of reducing societal stress and conflict the most rigorously established phenomenon in the history of the social sciences (Journal of Social Behavior and Personality 17(1): 285–338, 2005)

But, for me, when I think of TM I think of the 70's and the 80's (this is when I was practicing it and attending MIU etc) and it seems dated to me. While I have no problem with the technique or anyone practicing it, all the other hooplah seems like a money grab and borders on a bunch of hooey. If the die hards sitting around moldering on Purusha or Mother Divine want to continue to do so, all the power to them but this is for the equivalent of the fanatics in TM, IMO. The fact that some of my former classmates at the ripe old age of nearly 60 choose to live in FF is fairly quaint I'm pretty sure I couldn't manage it. That part seems all about community, though, which is fine as it is probably better than retirement in some old folks home.

Research Confirms Effectiveness.


The initial experimental verification of this new approach took place during the 1982 Lebanon war. A day-by-day study of an embedded group of peace-creating experts in 1983 showed that, on days when the number of participants was high, war deaths dropped by 76% (p < 10-7 ). In addition, crime, traffic accidents, fires, and other indicators of social stress all decreased significantly. Other possible causes were statistically controlled for (Journal of Conflict Resolution 32: 776–812, 1988).

On a societal scale, the approach of restoring calm and quelling social violence through the use of similar techniques by small embedded groups in society has been extensively field tested—in the Middle East and throughout the world. The consistent result has been marked reductions in terrorism, war, and social violence in the affected populations. These findings have been replicated in more than 50 studies, published in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals, and endorsed by hundreds of leading scientists and scholars. The efficacy of this approach is scientifically beyond question.

On the individual level, published research has shown that certain powerful stress reducing methods can neutralize even severe stress, including post-traumatic stress (PTS), within days—calming hyperactivity in the amygdala (“fear center” of the brain) and restoring balanced brain functioning in servicemen and -women, veterans, and victims of violence in war-torn areas.

On the individual level, published research has shown that certain powerful stress reducing methods can neutralize even severe stress, including post-traumatic stress (PTS), within days—calming hyperactivity in the amygdala (“fear center” of the brain) and restoring balanced brain functioning in servicemen and -women, veterans, and victims of violence in war-torn areas.


---In ***@yahoogroups.com, <***@yahoo.com> wrote :

On a societal scale, the approach of restoring calm and quelling social violence through the use of similar techniques by small embedded groups in society has been extensively field tested—in the Middle East and throughout the world. The consistent result has been marked reductions in terrorism, war, and social violence in the affected populations. These findings have been replicated in more than 50 studies, published in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals, and endorsed by hundreds of leading scientists and scholars. The efficacy of this approach is scientifically beyond question.

Research Confirms Effectiveness.


The initial experimental verification of this new approach took place during the 1982 Lebanon war. A day-by-day study of an embedded group of peace-creating experts in 1983 showed that, on days when the number of participants was high, war deaths dropped by 76% (p < 10-7 ). In addition, crime, traffic accidents, fires, and other indicators of social stress all decreased significantly. Other possible causes were statistically controlled for (Journal of Conflict Resolution 32: 776–812, 1988).


---In ***@yahoogroups.com, <***@yahoo.com> wrote :

These results were subsequently replicated in seven consecutive experiments over a two year period during the peak of the Lebanon war. The results of these interventions included: • war-related fatalities decreased by 71% (p < 10-10)
• war-related injuries fell by 68% (p < 10-6 )
• the level of conflict dropped by 48% (p < 10-8 )
• cooperation among antagonists increased by 66% (p < 10-6 )



---In ***@yahoogroups.com, <***@yahoo.com> wrote :

The likelihood that these combined results were due to chance is less than one part in 1019, making this effect of reducing societal stress and conflict the most rigorously established phenomenon in the history of the social sciences (Journal of Social Behavior and Personality 17(1): 285–338, 2005)

Doug, it *may* be a better approach. However, it has, as of yet, to really be proven. To the average person, it sounds more than a bit much.

The general public sees us as a benign cult and a bunch or weirdos that dress and talk funny and generally have odd behavior and beliefs. But one day....


I think if they want to teach TM in schools or in prisons or to the men and women with PTSD that is great. But, for me, when I think of TM I think of the 70's and the 80's (this is when I was practicing it and attending MIU etc) and it seems dated to me. While I have no problem with the technique or anyone practicing it, all the other hooplah seems like a money grab and borders on a bunch of hooey. If the die hards sitting around moldering on Purusha or Mother Divine want to continue to do so, all the power to them but this is for the equivalent of the fanatics in TM, IMO. The fact that some of my former classmates at the ripe old age of nearly 60 choose to live in FF is fairly quaint I'm pretty sure I couldn't manage it. That part seems all about community, though, which is fine as it is probably better than retirement in some old folks home.

Fortunately, there is a better solution—an innovative, peaceful, proven approach with a superior track record.



Economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure are ineffective against terrorism. And military responses can further antagonize and enflame an already volatile population, leading to retaliation and greater terrorism—the inevitable consequence of attempting to create peace through violence. How, then, can such dangerous and complex threats be resolved?

Research shows that war and social conflict are fueled by acute societal stress—mounting political, ethnic and religious tensions among rival factions that, if unchecked, inevitably erupt as social violence.

Om, ..Notice that Dr. Raja John Hagelin in two memos released yesterday to the meditating community and the world at large does not lead with or even mention Yf’ing. Such public enthusiasm for Y-f’ing is out of sync with the thinking now. The so-called advanced techniques evidently are not credible either with the public or even old meditators and are out of promotional favor now.


The call now is for meditators. For meditators to come together to meditate. Make way for the meditator again!


This Y-f’ing group promoting should fade away and focus on having that vast pool of meditators that is out there from the glorious past of our before, along with new meditators, come together again. The science shows it is time for meditators everywhere to mobilize and come together.


Promoting a circus of Y-f’ing now is needlessly distracting from what can be accomplished otherwise. -JaiGuruYou

Tacking upwind, notice that Raja Hagelin did not use the words “Yogic Flying” and ‘Yogic Flyers’ in his latest written appeal to the meditating community and the world at large to come together. Look at the text of his statements. ‘Yogic Flying‘ evidently is out as the public lead promotion.

Overtly that is good strategy at this point.

I ask [survey] meditators and our old governors and those who were on the IA course and most say they are ‘done’ with YF’ing. Folks meditate at home and are not just going to turn out for YF’ing. Yet they are meditators and meditate. It is time to go forward with our strength, which is go back to being a ‘meditating’ movement primarily.

Thanks for this.


I remember attending a meeting in the ‘80s by a couple who were among the first ‘flyers’ in the UK, who announced that a Sidha was a ‘superior being’, as in a ‘superior being’ to others. The reaction in the room from those more of my age group was one of disbelief that people could even think such a thing, never mind say such a thing to others to their faces.

Feeling fortunate is surely to be nurtured, but in my opinion, anything engendering a feeling of superiority is to be avoided at all costs. If humility is a characteristic of spirituality, then perhaps, in certain areas, it does not transition well through cultural exchange. Presumably, one who is no longer ‘the actor ‘but ‘the observer’, cannot rightly claim anything for himself.

I hope, in all the excitement and energy at the helm of power, the pillar that leads the concourse is the meditator from ‘the meditating community’.

difficult to assess without more info - I heard the same thing back then, only it was said in a context of evolution and personal growth, not judgment. Just as someone would say, for example, after you graduate from college, you will know more about x or y, than you did in high school.

There is a comprehensive cleansing of the body machinery through the Sidhis, and though I cannot say for those who sleep in the Domes during their programs, it does lead to an entirely different style of functioning, with simply more available than before. It could be called a 'superior' way of functioning, should a personal comparison be made of capabilities available before, and after, learning the techniques.

Well, prior to that time, I had already taken the TM-Sidhis course when living and working in a UK TM Academy. This meeting was an invite to a certain commercial enterprise for the general public to which the mention of meditation was part of the sales talk, but it would not be ethical to provide actual details except to say that a timely vacant parking space in a crowded town was considered a benefit of being a Sidha.

That's a fabulous benefit. I mean the parking space thing. I have noticed this for many years, although I do not attribute it to the sidhis. I think I am just naturally a superior being.

The technique for the check-out stand is pick the one furthest away from
where every else is going. Sometimes there may be someone there with
just 3 items or a checker twiddling their thumbs waiting for a
customer. Works most of the time except maybe Black Fridays. :-D

Ah yes, while the meditation brings inner rewards beyond description, I find that the material world hardly ever gives me the 200% ideal, perhaps my inner being and my physical mind have very different ideas of what's good for me...

I even join the longer checkout queue sometimes as it seems to reduce quicker when I'm in the shorter queue!

Re queuing and counterintuitive thinking: did you intend the pun?

Danish researchers have recently made a shocking suggestion - that queuing on the basis of last-come-first-served may sometimes be more efficient.


Under the first-come-first-served system airline passengers arrive early and wait in line to get on to the plane because those who are first in line get the seat they want.


But the researchers experimented with different queuing systems, and when they told volunteer queuers that people would be selected from the queue and served at random, the average wait was reduced.


The best system, however, turned out to be last-in-first-out - or to put it another way, last-come-first-served - with the person who arrives last getting served first.

Actually, I am almost physically incapable of waiting in line (or queuing, as you English say). It drives me insane. The problem at grocery stories is usually coupons. I hate coupons and think they should be banned. You just never know when some innocent-looking person ahead of you is going to pull out a fistful of 'em when they get to the checkout.

Lineups are like traffic jams. You have to find a way to enter some sort of mental space to deal with them without getting impatient or resorting to staring at your iPhone while you wait. This is why places like Disneyland or other "attractions" that consist of long lineups are not my cuppa.

Coupons? What are coupons? Actually a lot of stores around here have
done away with them. And nowadays we use apps instead. You put all the
"deals" of the week or month or whatever on them and then when you
checkout you swipe you member card or phone number and the discounts are
taken automatically. That speeds things up.

What hasn't been solved is going into a Starbucks (or other coffee
places) and there are like two people ahead of you. But the first
person in line pulls out a long list because they are "ordering for the
whole office." That makes many just turn around and walk out.
Starbucks may have a solution but the "whole office orderers" may not be
using it yet and it's only available some stores. They can put the
order in with their phone or even on their desktop and it will be
waiting for them when they arrive. This is also possible for independent
stores and I bet some do that.

Yeah... the whole coupon thing at the check out stand drives me nuts especially when there is a problem with the coupon and a long discussion ensues and the manager is paged for. Meanwhile, my 1/2 gallon of Organic Vanilla Ice Cream is melting on the belt.


I also go crazy with the folks who still write checks and don't begin filling in the details until they get the total. Only then it comes out of the purse, etc., and the person starts to log the entry in the checkbook and then fill out the check. Argggggggggg!

I also have no patience for the same type of person (as in I'm the only person in the world and my actions don't affect others attitude) who is at the coffee and condiments self serve counter. They insist in adding their condiments and judiciously stirring it while block acess to the the coffee pump. It drags on as they then decide they need a heat sleeve and a lid (whose size is never correctly chosen the first time) They don't pull to the side to engage in the gastronomic preparatory machinations while letting the rest of us get on with our lives. I drink it black so I am in and out of there in the time it takes a gnat to fart.

I should switch to decaf, I know.

I agree with you there, ultra. I have long been amazed by the folks in the grocery store line who watch passively as their stuff is being rung up and then slowly, and only when the total shows, rummage around in their bag for cash or check. It's as if they are surprised that they are being asked to pay for it all.

Quite frankly, Fairfield, Iowa and by extension the Global Country of World Peace assemblies are run here on coffee. The Fairfield coffee shop scene is where business of the whole meditating community gets done. Where it used to be through the Domes for check-in with the community, now it is throughout the mornings at the Fairfield coffee shops, and again at noontime.

A lot of great coffee gets served with locally produced organic milk products or various alternative cow milk substitutes, chai or ayurvedic teas, locally baked goods, pies and such. Depending on who you want to run in to you have to go around to different watering holes. Is very Parisian this way.

Checks? Who uses those anymore? I know what you're talking about but
actually I never buy enough stuff to use a checker unless they aren't
busy. I use the automated checkout instead. The worst problem then is
when there is a problem and the attendant for the automated check has
wandered off somewhere.

At one store you are supposed to put your bag in the bagging area then
press the done button. Then it tells you "wait a minute while we check
your bag." For some reason most of the time it thinks my bag, provided
free by the city for their no plastic bag law, is not a bag. I wind up
yelling at the attendant "it's a bag" (as they can easily see). I don't
know who programmed the thing, probably some fresh out of college 23
year old from Bangalore (where they probably don't have such technology
in their stores).

This one I get too. At Starbucks I call this area "the staging area" as
the customer has already gotten their drink. I drink mine black too but
they are often positioned right in front of the napkin dispenser. You
feel that if you reach in to grab a napkin they'll bite your head off
because they haven't had their coffee yet. For a brief time another
local Starbucks put a napkin dispenser right where you pick up your
drink. I thought they wised up but the manager told me it was because
they had an extra dispenser. And the other place downtown is supposed
to have two dispensers in the "staging area" but one broke and they've
never replaced it.

Depends. You like me and probably a lot of Americans are pitta
primary. That's why we are a bit impatient. But then some of us are
kapha secondary so even my MD/Ayurvedic physician said my habit of an
Americano espresso each day is not a bad idea in the morning. It cuts
that kapha. But I mellow out these days with some pitta balancing herbs
and even asked David Frawley once why drinking these herbs in winter
helped. He told me pitta was probably blocking kapha (resulting in
indigestion). I also have a theory that genetically I react to cold
winter weather by heating up.... too much so pitta has to be tempered
even in winter.

But imagine if the reesh was right about "nature support" though? What fabulous people we TMers would be! Able to engineer reality at fundamental levels just to ensure we get what we want. Don't laugh, this is what he meant. What insidious deluded nonsense! But what superb understanding of how to sell a message. Get the first idea accepted and then peddle a load of accessory ideas that depend on it at ever increasing cost.


Even now, years after his death, people still filter reality according to whether it fits the Marshy's teaching. They pay millions for useless prayers, trudge to the dome to create world peace and cower from the moon's shadow. All as instructed and all without ever seeing a positive result.

That is fine. Well, I conduct science every time I meditate and then open mine eyes afterwards. Yep, someone else did gather the larger science in study on meditating and the support of nature phenomena.


In my own observation it is science and a scientific experiment every time I meditate and subsequently experience that support of Nature phenomena. From observation, make hypothesis, test, get result, and make replication. Seems quite verifiable and true in my experience. It's not your experience too? Some lack of experience with it does not make the science in itself bad. -JaiGuruYou

I always thought that 1% did seem to be too nice a round arbitrary figure to take literally.

I want to thank the community. I have not spoken to anyone in the TM world for nearly 3 decades (what? where did that time go?) except for a short moment in the foyer of the hospital in which I work. I thought it was just me that questioned the great claims.

I was devoted to Maharishi. I only saw him once but it seemed like I knew him because His giant picture was on the wall behind the two giant gas ovens in the kitchen that I cooked in at the Towers (“British Capital of the WGOAE”
or something like that). I never considered him to be my ‘guru’ but rather I thought him to be a special seer who knew more than any man alive. Somewhat traumatised beforehand, I considered his meditation and the aforementioned Academy to have saved me - and it did actually


While I thought M knew most things, I took some things with a pinch of salt. I understand some people need to believe their guru’s knowledge is infallible and literal truth or they can’t function as fully as they do at that point, and anything else would seem to them as fairy-tales and I find it inharmonious to drive a rumbling chariot through the peace-loving existence of others.

It’s refreshing to know that there are people who revere M for being the true Vedic master of meditation who has firmly established an age-lasting foothold of grace in a sometimes foolish world - and yet can identify and discern the lines between the fact, doctrine, personal opinion and experimentation which emerge from human fallibility.

Thanks....I'm a "believer" in the benefits of group meditations; but haven't seen much evidence that large enough groups of people are being attracted to regular meditations. - at least where I live (San Diego)


An alternative hypothesis (fueled by Isaiah and other sources), from a Fundamentalist religious perspective is that a tipping point in human development will occur when large numbers of healings will occur. Some Evangelical would-be Prophets are predicting that "soon", the stadiums which now seat sports enthusiasts will attract thousands of people hoping to be healed of various diseases and maladies, both congenital and acquired. Naturally, the Evangelical perspective is that Jesus will be the Agent for such healings.
In a popularity contest between those meditating on "Pure Consciousness" vs those people hoping for miraculous healings, which attraction would be the winner?

Dear Col. Leed, if you could deploy to Brussels that would be really wonderful having a meditator of your stature representing America there and also having a credible reporter to FFL from the EU summit meditation. We look forward to your reports. Keep us posted. Bon Voyage,
-JaiGuruYou!

I asked someone here today who is a real deal siddha if they would go to Brussels to meditate with the group. [?] Their response was that the Unified Field is in every heart, there is not need for this person to go. This person will meditate with them here. -JaiGuruYou

I would hope Nablusoss could feel safe enough here now to come back on and help keep us informed of developments like this. I should suspect that he would be in Brussels for a peace project like this.

When they reincarnate they may NOT have advanced or evolve more!!! Military silences them only 4 a short time then they may return here or else where! Thus the military solution is but temporary & besides it demeans the silencer at the end of the trigger! as well!

Not to mention that ISIS is staffed by amateurs, probably gung ho gamers who want to play the real thing obviously without thinking things through. These fools are going to be seeing 72 demons ready for their butts than virgins quite soon. They are like a form of zombie and we know what to do with zombies. ;-)

Unfortunately, the options available to our military and political leaders to resolve these crises are poor. Economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure are ineffective against terrorism. And military responses can further antagonize and enflame an already volatile population, leading to retaliation and greater terrorism—the inevitable consequence of attempting to create peace through violence. How, then, can such dangerous and complex threats be resolved?




---In ***@yahoogroups.com, <***@yahoo.com> wrote :






Research shows that war and social conflict are fueled by acute societal stress—mounting political, ethnic and religious tensions among rival factions that, if unchecked, inevitably erupt as social violence. Research similarly shows that it is possible to effectively defuse such acute societal tensions through the use of powerful, stress-reducing, peace-promoting technologies by a small fraction of the population, most commonly within the military or in schools or universities.



---In ***@yahoogroups.com, <***@yahoo.com> wrote :


Achieving societal peace in a nation or a region torn by deep-seated political and religious tensions is historically difficult—especially given the underlying physiological root cause of social violence: acute and pervasive societal stress. Without addressing the buildup of acute societal stress, standard approaches to conflict resolution are unlikely to succeed. However, once such tensions have been substantially defused, achieving and maintaining societal peace becomes comparatively easy.
