How The A-List Rocks Their TM

I will start by stating the obvious; people listen to celebrities.

*Gasp* *Pfft* 'Not me!', you just said to yourself. 

Let us be real with each other for a moment. If a celebrity you like and respect endorses a product, chances are you would at least entertain the idea of trying it. It's okay. You better believe that when Seinna Miller looks cute in a brand, I shop them. We are together within this phenomenon.

So now let's talk about something else. Something really important to me. Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation, or TM, as practitioners call it, is a form of meditation perfected by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Being an avid Beatles fan, I personally heard of the Maharishi from reading about how the Fab Four went to live and study with him in India in the 60's. I was intrigued, and in my research I found that the Maharishi had formed an institute with centers across the U.S. teaching people this method of meditation. My husband and I spent the next two weeks being taught to quiet our 'Monkey Mind' in rooms of flowers and candles, reciting our individual (and secret) mantras.

I can tell you that this changed my life, and encourage you to seek out this mental and emotional freedom for yourselves, but it may have more weight if I tell you what some spiritually awakened A-Listers have to say about TM instead.

It was a powerfully energizing, yet calming experience. I didn’t want it to end. When it did, I walked away feeling fuller than when I came in. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is- still- the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.

I had got to the point where I thought I would like to meditate; I’d read about it and I knew I needed a mantra- a password to get through to the other world.
— George Harrison
I have become a better person through Transcendental Meditation, and I want to help bring this gift to others.
— Russell Brand
I’m a great supporter of Transcendental Meditation. I’ve been using it for almost 40 years now - and I think it’s a great tool for anyone to have, to be able to utilize as a tool for stress...
...I think there are enough studies out there that show that TM is something that could benefit anybody. It’s a great system to use. Otherwise, why would I have been doing it all these years, for almost half of my life?
— Clint Eastwood
It’s only by doing it - going home and realizing the deeper levels of consciousness. The real problem is lack of wisdom in the world. So each person, each individual has something to do.
— John Lennon

Hopefully you all have found these quotes intriguing, and find yourself immersed in the expanse of your mind very soon.

Namaste.
