Picture of the Day: #JaneAsher#PaulMcCartney#JohnLennon#CynthiaLennon#MaharishiMaheshYogi#PattieBoyd#GeorgeHarrison#RingoStarr and #JennyBoyd in Bangor, Wales on August 27, 1967. We are celebrating 50th anniversary of Transcendental Meditation for this month!
“I was always interested in Eastern philosophies and wanted find out about meditation, I went to some lectures and became initiated into transcendental meditation. When the Maharishi came to England, George said he wanted to meet him and became passionate about his teachings.” -Pattie (04)
“As we were heading back to our room, a reporter told us that Brian Epstein, who had steered the Beatles for the past six years, had been found dead. The disbelief and horror were overwhelming. Brian had been the Beatles’ mentor, their guide and best friend. The details were sketchy but it was a suspected overdose. This was horrific. And help came in the shape of the Maharishi. We were called into his quarters and walked in, heads bowed. He sat yoga-style in the centre and asked us to sit down on the floor and talked to us for the next few minutes about life’s journey, reincarnation, release from pain and this life being a stepping stone to the next. The Maharishi’s words helped us all to feel a little less bleak and as the weeks passed after we returned to London, John and I were brought closer by grief. John and George were also being drawn towards the Maharishi. It was as though, with Brian gone, the four needed someone new to give them direction and the Maharishi was in the right place at the right time.” -Cynthia (08)
“...That’s why we all went and listened to his lecture, and he was obviously very happy when he heard that they were in the audience, and he wanted to meet them. When he did he suggested that we all go to Wales for a few days to learn more about meditation: he wanted to initiate them. It was really awful because while we were up there, their manager Brian Epstein died. It was just awful. One can think how extraordinary that the one person who had been guiding them throughout their career, from the beginning of their career, died, just as this spiritual leader is taking over.” -Pattie (11)

“While we were in Rishikesh at Maharishi’s ashram studying meditation, there were occasionally intimate talks just for the Beatles. Clearly a lot more meditators were expected, as you can see in the background of this photograph an Indian builder on a rooftop. In the foreground George - wearing a pretty, floral Deborah and Clare shirt - is showing something to the Maharishi.” - Pattie Boyd, National Geographic //
“[I]f it was anyone’s birthday, and there were a surprising number while we were there, including George’s twenty-fifth and my twenty-fourth, there would be cake and a party. At George’s everyone put red and yellow paint on their faces and wore garlands of flowers, and an Indian musician came to play for him. The same musician played on my birthday, and gave me a beautiful dilruba - an Indian string instrument - with a bird’s head engraved at the neck. [...] The two who were most engrossed in Maharishi’s teachings were John and George. They would meditate for hours, and George was very focused. I loved meditating, but I can’t sustain that sort of intensity for long. Sometimes I would leave George meditating and make a foray to Mussoorie and Dehradun.” - Pattie, “Wonderful Tonight” #music#Rishikesh50#1960s#TheBeatles#TM#meditation#thateventuality
Such a great positive way of thinking. Although I know and understand 100% that when we do "fail" it is actually a learning lesson and should be taken as a way to observe & understand what is needed to be done in order to get to that higher vibration we want to reach.. but OBSESSING over our failures? Never a good look! This only can lead to an unhealthy form of perfectionism, stress and harsh judgments on ourselves. Relax. Inhale. Exhale. You got this. Those ideas and thoughts you want to make happen - strategically put them in writing so that you physically see and can know what goals you're working toward and can make the proper steps to keep that light shining on them. Peace & Power every hour. ✨✨✨✨✨ Asé 💪🏾 #CrystalNef
😉USING WINDSHIELD WIPER TO CLEAN ANY NEGATIVITIES THAT COME INTO YOUR MIND 😉
Enjoy your life and be happy.
Being happy is of the utmost importance.
Success in anything is through happiness.
More support of nature comes from being happy.
Under all circumstances be happy, even if you have to force it a bit to change some long standing habits.
Just think of any negativity that comes to you as a raindrop falling into the ocean of your bliss.
You may not always have an ocean of bliss, but think that way anyway and it will help it come.
Doubting is not blissful and does not create happiness.
Be happy, healthy, and let all that love flow through your heart.#maharishimaheshyogi#happiness#bliss
