I learned the TM technique at the San Francisco office this past February. I had been interested in learning a meditation technique and had heard about this one through celebrity endorsement (Russell Brand and David Lynch). That alone is not enough to spend nearly $1,000 on a technique; I did a lot of research online and from what I read, it sounded like this one was simple and effective. I e-mailed back and forth with the two people who ran the office, went in for a free group informational session, and then signed up. Once you sign up, you go to the office for parts of both days over a weekend and get assigned a mantra individually and then attend a group session. The mantra is unique to the individual, but the meditation technique is the same for anyone. You can find the bulk of this program via a quick google search but the group Q&A and the recommended ongoing group sessions that are included with the price (once per week for the first month, once per month for the first year) are really what helped me to develop a solid understanding and practice. It is a time-intensive technique (ideally twenty minutes per day, 2x per day, every day) but it is a simple technique and when I do it I find it effective.

Although there are many different doctrines that are supporting these reviews, it captures the fact that we are to discern the truths and are responsible for our own actions and beliefs. As children of God through Jesus Christ our Savior, we will not be judged for our sins but rather for our rewards. Les Feldick teachings are still impacted by one thing. Being in the flesh, he does throw his own beliefs in like anyone else does. Everyone should take a minute and look at their own church doctrines, teachings, Sunday sermons and Pastors. They do the same thing. Let the Holy Spirit direct you through any teachings as the word is given for the truth. If it aint right, the Holy Spirit will talk to you. It is up to us to study on our own and capture the real truth through our reading in the Spirit. Notice I said Spirit and not the flesh. I have had times when I went through the rituals and got nothing out of it. In the Spirit is where we learn. Continue to study and test all teachings. Keep your families in your prayers.

"Jim" as I remember him well from the early 70s was a great man who led me to Christ through Youth Ranch in 1973. He taught, guided me, and encouraged me, took me camping and white-water rafting. I even listened to his advice and attended Florida Bible College, some of the best years of my life. Years later, I befriended a roommate from Chicago, and immediately Jim recommended I drop him as friend. Jim's tone had changed, and I was a bit surprised. This friend was a great soul-winner, who encouraged me to witness to the lost, so I did not follow his advice. On a summer trip to work with a church on the southside of Chicago, Jim had tried to talk me into abandoning those plans to work with Quentin Road Bible Church instead. I almost did, but I let my friends talk me into staying with my original plan. Jim was furious. He had invested a lot of time in me, an impressionable young man who was newly born again, but unstable in life. I tried to apologize to him in person, but he said it was too late. "You will never amount to a hill of beans for the Lord," he told me, something that struck me a heavy blow. Years later, as an adult, I tried to reconnect while I was in the Air Force. I visited Chicago, and they treated me very special, like the prodigal son. I did move to Chicago, immediately after separating from the Air Force, but at that point I had some severe problems with my marriage. I tried desperately to restore my marriage, but Jim demanded I divorce my wife, something I refused to do. It took some time, but I was able to restore the marriage, and we had two more wonderful children and are happily married still. Meantime, Jim persuaded the pastor of his sister church in St. Cloud, MN, Tom Cucuzza and his assistant Danny Trout to cease all communication with me because I was living in direct disobedience with Reverend Scudder. Tom and Danny had been very good friends with whom I had worked in South Florida in youth work (Danny was one of my best friends.) This came to quite a shock as I have very fond memories of serving the Lord with them. It is true that I have made some bad spiritual decisions, but I am now still serving the Lord. Too bad, this kind of legalism and Pharisaical behavior has destroyed the bridge I once had with people I once admired. I guess in Heaven it will finally be restored.
