Flying for Peace—Inner and Outer
The classical law of gravity is not an absolute law, but only a statistical probability. It's only the classical theory of the curvature of space that says objects fall down. Quantum theory says that gravity goes both ways, up and down. Over 100,000 people are now enjoying the upward direction, thanks to Maharishi's TM-Sidhi program. And they're taking the world along for the ride, hastening the arrival of world peace.

Liftoff! Introducing Yogic Flying

(from The Complete Book of Yogic Flying by Craig Pearson)

It needed a scientific age for the world to appreciate the significance of the philosophy of Yoga and its practical application in creating integrated individuals, integrated nations, and an integrated world family. Yoga means union, the union of the individual awareness with the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature in the state of transcendental consciousness.

Acting  from The Unified Field
"Yogic Flying demonstrates the ability of the individual to act from the unified field and enliven the total potential of Natural Law in all its expressions—mind, body, behavior, and environment. Yogic Flying presents in miniature the flight of galaxies in space, all unified in perfect order by Natural Law. The mind-body coordination displayed by Yogic Flying shows that consciousness and its expression—the physiology—are in perfect balance. Scientific research has found maximum coherence in brain functioning gives rise to Yogic Flying. As the coherently functioning human brain is the unit of world peace, Yogic Flying is the mechanics to make world peace a reality, and thereby bring world health, world happiness, world prosperity, a world free from suffering—Heaven on Earth in this generation." —Maharishi
"Yogic Flying is so profound that I sometimes wonder how people go through the day without it," says Frank diChiara, M.D., Chief of Staff at New Jersey Medical Hospital, and one of more than 100,000 people around the world who take time twice each day to practice Yogic Flying.

Doctors and lawyers, teachers and students, business executives and homemakers, military, political and religious leaders, retired people and teens—all kinds of people practice Yogic Flying. Why? Not just because they hope someday to levitate or fly. Although the experience is enjoyable and revitalizing, they practice Yogic Flying for two more important reasons: For themselves—to be happier, healthier, more successful; and for society—to help create world peace.

Coherent Brainwaves = Success
Scientists have observed remarkable changes in the way the brain functions during Yogic Flying. Brainwaves become highly coherent and orderly—with maximum coherence occurring at the point the body lifts up—indicating that the brain is functioning more powerfully and gaining greater access to its full potential.

This more orderly and powerful brain functioning translates into equally remarkable benefits, such as increased intelligence and creativity, clearer thinking, improved health, enhanced perception, reversal of the aging process, more fulfilling relationships. In short, people practice Yogic Flying because of its results in everyday life.

"Since I started Yogic Flying, my life has been very smooth," comments one Yogic Flyer. "My thinking has become clearer, my physiology stronger, and my desires more easily fulfilled." Another says, "I experience freedom and happiness during Yogic Flying. It's an unbounded happiness; not the ordinary limited happiness that seems like it will be gone soon. I feel as though I've come home."

Creating World Peace—Together
Studies on the quality of life in society show an even more extraordinary effect. When people practice Yogic Flying together in a group, they create an influence of orderliness and coherence that radiates out to their environment. This coherence-creating effect, called the Extended Maharishi Effect, neutralizes stress and negativity within the innermost fabric of society, the field of collective consciousness*.

As coherence in collective consciousness increases, research shows that the crime rate drops. Sickness and accident rates drop. Inflation and unemployment decline and the economy improves. Even terrorism and open warfare have been reduced or stopped by groups of Yogic Flyers, and the superpowers have become friendlier.

The TM-Sidhi program, including Yogic Flying, was introduced by Maharishi in 1976 as a natural extension of the Transcendental Meditation technique. Although individuals who have learned the TM-Sidhi program are of all ages, professions, religious traditions, educational backgrounds and political affiliations, they share one common conviction: Yogic Flying is the best thing you can do for yourself, and the best thing you can do for the world. They admit that their approach is new and different. Yet scientific research studies unanimously confirm its effectiveness. It has been proven to accelerate human development in unprecedented ways, and at the same time to resolve the most intractable social problems—problems that have defied every other attempt at solution.

The bottom line is: In a world sorely in need of solutions, Yogic Flying works.

*Collective consciousness is the sum of all the individuals’ consciousness in a city, state, nation, or the world. 
Floating and Flying through History
Human beings have been fascinated with the idea of flying since antiquity. The ancient Greek myth of Icarus and Daedalus escaping from the labyrinth on the island of Crete with hand-fashioned waxen wings exerts power to this day. Even in the modern age of jet travel and space shuttles, we have not lost our private dream of personal, unencumbered flight. We have created our own myths of flying heroes—Peter Pan, Superman, ET.
But the ability to fly is not limited to mythology. It forms an age-old heritage of humanity. Throughout the world, from ancient times to the present, we find stories of people who actually could float and fly. The earliest and most detailed descriptions come from the ancient Vedic tradition, where hovering and flying are described as the natural abilities of fully developed human beings.
Many well-attested accounts are, historically speaking, right in our own backyard. In Europe alone, levitation has been attributed to more than 200 saints, and is the most commonly mentioned miracle in the Roman Catholic tradition.
The best known example is St. Joseph of Copertino, the 17th-century Italian saint. More than a hundred flights were officially recorded during his life. At the slightest inspiration—beautiful picture, a sweet melody—he would be swept high into the air, soaring to the ceiling of a church and remaining suspended in mid-air, sometimes for fifteen minutes, sometimes for two hours, in full view of eminent witnesses. Today St. Joseph of Copertino is the patron saint of those who travel by air.
In the first century AD, the Greek philosopher-saint Apollonius of Tyana traveled to India, where, he reports, he saw Indian Brahmins "levitating themselves two cubits [three feet] high from the ground." Most historians have regarded his stories as pure fantasy. But Ernest Wood, the respected English writer on Eastern philosophy, reports witnessing the same thing during his travels to India just a few decades ago: "I remember one occasion when an old yogi was levitated in a recumbent posture about six feet above the air in an open field, for about half an hour, while the visitors were permitted to pass sticks to and fro in the space between...Levitation, or the rising of the body from the ground and its suspension a few feet up in the air above the seat or couch, is a universally accepted fact in India."
How is Yogic Flying possible? How can a person float or fly through the air in apparent defiance of gravity? Yogic Flying invites us to look at human potential in an altogether new light, to expand our notions of what human beings can accomplish, to think afresh about the connection between the human mind and the natural world.
In just the last few years, quantum physics has identified the most fundamental field of nature's intelligence, the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature—the level from where all the Laws of Nature, including the force of gravity, arise. This universal level of Natural Law underlies all forms and phenomena in the universe, including the human mind and body.
The ancient Vedic understanding of nature that Maharishi has brought to light goes further, identifying this universal field as a field of unbounded pure consciousness. Since human consciousness has its foundation and source in this most fundamental field of Natural Law, the human mind can open to this most powerful level of nature and function from there. Functioning from this fundamental level, we command the total potential of Natural Law. We gain the ability to know anything, do anything, and accomplish anything. Functioning from there, nothing is impossible for us. Our potential is unbounded.
The Transcendental Meditation technique allows the mind to settle down and experience this field of pure consciousness, the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature, within our own awareness. The advanced TM-Sidhi program, of which Yogic Flying is a part, allows the mind to think and act from this most fundamental level of Natural Law.

Yogic Flying therefore does not violate the law of gravity or any law of nature. It enables us to access and enliven the total potential of Natural Law residing within each of us—to open this infinite reservoir of energy and intelligence and harness it for all possibilities and fulfillment in daily life.
