The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring this article about Professor William T. Hathaway, who describes how Transcendental Meditation helped him recover from the effects of a brain injury suffered at birth, including problems with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) throughout his school years.
After learning Transcendental Meditation, he writes, ''In a few weeks my thoughts became clearer, and I didn't want drugs anymore. I could concentrate. And I could write. One of my essays gained me entrance to a much better university, Columbia, and this time my grades were so good I received a scholarship. My first novel won a Rinehart Foundation Award, and I became a professor of creative writing and won a Fulbright grant to teach at universities in Germany. I've now published eight books.''

Dr. Hathaway mentions scientific research showing increased brain wave coherence and beneficial neuroendocrine changes during Transcendental Meditation. ''TM also increases creativity, as I have experienced firsthand. Our mind is quieter and calmer, even outside of meditation, so we are able to hear the soft, inner whispers of creative ideas. And since TM is energizing, we are able to actualize them.''
