We asked some local Australians what their experience is with Transcendental Meditation (TM). Below are their responses:
Below are more written experiences from people who practice Transcendental Meditation around Australia:
“Since starting Transcendental Meditation, I have gained so much confidence in myself and my work. It keeps me clear and lets ideas & creativity flow no matter what’s going on around me.” - Laura Flett, Student
“I can honestly say that Transcendental Meditation is one of the most important, if not the most important parts of my day. The morning meditation sets me up for the day and the evening helps me to wind down. The mental clarity and ability to perform at higher levels for longer periods I undoubtedly attribute to its regular practice. It has made a profoundly positive influence on all aspects of my life professionally and personally.”
- Nicolas Cox, Mortgage Broker
“In 1975 I learned the Transcendental Meditation technique. Through it I found a new peace and well-being, and a new understanding of the unity of all humankind. I still practice everyday.”
- Frances Letters, Retired Writer
Below is a (1 min) video from artist, John Simpson. He answers the question, “how has TM helped your creative process?”
“I was bullied from a young age and suffered depression for most of my life. After learning TM, I had confidence and peace of mind unlike any I had experienced before. It has helped me find true inner happiness, and passion for life.”
- Alex Yu, Writer
“I always wanted to be the life of the party. Behind the wheel of a car I was a maniac. I was lucky I didn’t hurt myself. Everything was flat out like “formula 1″ pace for me. After learning TM, I noticed the results straight away on day one. Sometimes you experience a profoundly deep inner silence and you come out feeling extremely blissful, almost like nothing can rattle you and you’ve got this storm going on on the outside but this peace on the inside.”
- Jamie Pollock, Businessman
“No matter how far I go from my nature, TM brings me back to my centre every time I practice it.”
- Soli Jahangir, PhD Student
“TM gives me the clarity of mind to make the right decisions in my business. No matter how stressful the day has been, those 20 minutes of eyes closed meditation refresh me like nothing else. It is a priceless technique that pays for itself in the first year and keeps on giving every day – I couldn’t live without it.”
Asher Fergusson, Startup Owner
How can I learn to transcend?
Real meditation is effortless and pleasant to do, it can be learned by anyone, and gives immediate results.
The experience of transcending can be achieved only in a completely natural and effortless way. It is an experience of complete, inner silence that cannot be achieved by trying to be quiet. The more we try, the more we keep the mind active. Trying to relax is a contradiction in terms. That is why most “meditation” methods that require concentration have limited effect.
The Transcendental Meditation technique is taught individually, by a professionally trained teacher who is able to lead a person, in a completely natural way, to the experience of transcending.
If one has had this experience once, then the mind remembers it and, afterwards, it can go back there spontaneously, in a totally natural and effortless way, provided that one uses the correct technique. This technique is taught step by step, during four consecutive meetings. This initial training course is followed by a extensive program of follow-up meetings to ensure continued correct practice.
