The Sydney Morning Herald reported on December 8, 2004 that meditation is providing a much needed calm to today's celebrities and that the Transcendental Meditation Technique is one of the most popular options, 'due to its accessibility and measurability.' It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of culture.

The article cited meditation as the newest trend among Hollywood stars in their struggle to counter stress and promote well-being. The auther interviewed a number of stars, including film director David Lynch who gave TM credit for enhancing his 'bliss, creativity and intelligence.' 'Garbage gets out, gold comes in,' stated Lynch. 'Everything becomes easier. And you start understanding more.'

Actress Heather Graham, a long-time TM practitioner, described her experience as 'entering this blissful feeling of nothingness'.

The article noted that experts affirm that regular meditation provides positive benefits in the areas of both mental and physical health. The article went on to describe popular forms of meditation, starting with the Transcendental Meditation Technique and including Buddhism and local Australian meditation programmes.

The author observed, 'Sounds like it's worth making time for,' and went on to provide a list of 'bliss benefits', including clarity of mind, increased creativity, improved health, expanded awareness, and experiencing one's full mental potential.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
