The article features freelance writer Teresa Stanonik, who describes eloquently how she went from living a 'destructive lifestyle' and feeling frustrated and empty to living in a bright world of 'freedom, fulfilment, and happiness' after learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique as a teenager.
The Transcendental Meditation (TM) Programme 'came into my chaotic world just when I needed it most,' Teresa writes. 'The year before I learned TM was really intense for me. I was 16. I wanted freedom, fulfilment and happiness, but couldn't find them anywhere. I resented my parents, teachers, and society for directing me down a path of life that did not fulfil my desires.
Her aunt brought Teresa to a weekend course with the Mother Divine Programme* in New York state, where the profound feeling of serenity, fulfilment, contentment, and happiness permeating the atmosphere, and the 'steadiness, ease, and grace' of the Mother Divine Programme participants inspired her to learn Transcendental Meditation.
Teresa describes how, on the basis of her twice-daily TM practice, she 'became enthusiastically involved in my education. My relations with family and friends began to mend and deepen. My physical and mental health rapidly improved as I . . . adopted a healthier lifestyle. My world grew brighter as the freedom, fulfilment, and happiness I so deeply desired became a living reality. TM established order and stability in my life, and also gave me direction. I knew clearly that I wanted enlightenment more than anything else.'
