I’m four months on with TM and the main thing I’ve noticed is my ability to recognize myself.
Before TM I didn’t know who I was, what I wanted or whether I wanted anything, this includes to continue living.
I was in the darkest place I’ve ever been in my life, and that scared me enough to try something which some people I know saw as radical, Transcendental Meditation.
I’ve missed a couple of times, mostly because of conflicts with timing, airplane trips and being tired as hell.
Those times were when I noticed a difference, I’m not saying to stop doing it to see what I’m talking about, but I could tell the difference in my temperament and overall mood.
With TM I discovered who I am, what I want and where I want my life to be in a few years.
Before I was under the delusion that I could get myself out of any funk I got into, this includes depression, but I was wrong. My depression was the worst I’ve dealt with and because of that, I had to try TM.
In my first session I learned more about myself in those 20 minutes, than I had in the previous 38 years.
I found peace, for the first time in my life I felt like I could make myself better than I’d been before.
Along the way I’ve learned that focusing on myself, my writing and my family were more important than any distraction caused by my day job.
The delusions I had about my life before TM have been put into perspective as I didn’t know who I was or in what direction I was headed.
The delusion of our life is that it gets better without help, it rarely does.
I discovered my life is more than the person in the body, it’s about the way I want to help others, the things I want to teach others, like TM, and how I want those I care about to discover TM and its benefits.
TM has changed my views on life, family and creativity, but I know I’m on the correct path now, and that’s changed how I run my life instead of it running me.
TM allows you to take control of your life in a way you never thought possible.
