Transcendental Meditation and the art of Chinese peony painting
21 April 2019 - 'Transcendental Meditation and creating a Chinese peony flower painting have a lot in common. The term that comes to mind is ''effortlessness'',' writes Demerie Faitler, a PhD in Chinese History who has spent several years studying the art of Chinese brush painting with leading experts in the genre in Taiwan. 'The stability that comes from TM provides a firm base, a grounding, a spring board that sets the hand free to take off. Like the gentle but firm mother who is the stable support for the child as she experiments and creates herself, the steadfast inner stability supports the hand moving the brush from stroke to stroke as it takes off and flies, here to lay out the delicate flower petals, there to define the cascading leaves and strong and firm stems, ... the effortless dynamism of nature, the process of improvisation in the spiraling strokes. This is the ''Dao of Painting'', the source of creativity.' (more)

Why being happy is the best way to help others (Part Two of a two-part series on happiness)
6 April 2019 - 'Happiness is contagious.... Just enter a room when people are having a good time, and you'll immediately feel better.' Health writer Linda Egenes describes research showing that Transcendental Meditation promotes inner happiness: 'When people are experiencing less stress and a clearer mind through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, they also experience increased happiness, greater self-esteem, and improved well-being.... Through TM I have become familiar with the essence of happiness inside of me, as it exists in every person, and when I ... experience this ocean of bliss inside, I am transformed.' Research also shows that regular TM practice by a small proportion of the population 'creates a chain reaction of positivity, as measured by falling crime rate, less traffic fatalities, higher employment, fewer hospital admissions, more positive national mood, and an upswing in the economy'.

The best proactive approach to prevent terrorism
1 April 2019 - 'If wars start in the minds of men, then peace logically ought to start there as well,' concludes a recent response to the Philippine Defence Secretary's call for a high alert following terrorist activity. Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight, Jr. (US Army Ret.), Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Kulwant Singh, UYSM, PhD, and Dr David Leffler urge adoption of an 'unconventional yet highly effective approach with a proven scientific record for diffusing terrorism and violence . . . called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), based on the non-religious Transcendental Meditation (TM) programme.' For a minimal investment of time and resources, the Philippine military could train 1,500 experts in IDT - 'a ''prevention brigade'' whose members meditate twice a day to defuse the deeply rooted regional stresses and hatred that are the cause of conflict'.

While driving a truck across the country for a year, Esther found a way to keep up with her classwork: she listened to the lectures on the road, took notes during her breaks, and did her homework at the end of her ten-hour shifts. She was excited to discover all the scientific studies on the Transcendental Meditation programme. 'The logical correlation of a spiritual reality that manifested through a scientific avenue was what I've looked for my whole life,' she said. (more)

Demystifying happiness: At our core we are pure love, pure happiness, pure bliss (Part one of a series)
22 March 2019 - 'What makes a person happy?' asks health writer Linda Egenes. 'It's not the actual situation we are in, good or bad, that determines happiness, but how we perceive it. As everyone knows, neither money nor fame can make a person happy. . . . The essence of who we are transcends our thoughts and emotions, our hopes and dreams: at our core we are pure love, pure happiness, pure bliss. Our twice-daily sessions of Transcendental Meditation give us the time and space to explore this part of ourselves, which can get lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life. The more this unseen part of our life emerges, the happier we are and the more we can spontaneously share that with others. . . . like a light bulb which, once lit, sheds light all around.' (more)
