Iraq veteran David George is now a fulltime student at Maharishi University of Management. He concludes his story with an account of how much he enjoys helping people—especially speaking out on behalf of the David Lynch Foundation about Transcendental Meditation and how it can help heal veterans. Please see Part 1 and Part II of this article.
Rediscovering my true nature
How can I help you? That is a question that I ask a lot of people. During my destructive phase, I was such a recluse that even if I was out, I might not have stopped to help someone who was on fire. Helping is in my true nature, and that is what I do as often as I can.
I just helped a kid change his flat tire at 10pm in the parking lot at the local Hy-Vee market. I ended up dirtier than he was. That is what I enjoy—doing what it takes to help others, no matter what the cost. That's why I chose the Army Infantry; I was willing to help even if it meant my life.
Now that I am a full time student at Maharishi University of Management, I do my part trying to spread the word on how the Transcendental Meditation program can help heal veterans. I have spoken at several David Lynch Foundation events and write a blog for the school at mumvet.com.
Operation Warrior Wellness is a program that is looking to reach out to veterans who could use TM in their lives and get them meditating. I have met veterans who have started meditating because of the talks I've given or videos I've done. Knowing that I am helping my fellow brothers- and sisters-in-arms is greatly satisfying. Anything I am asked to do I will try if it means someone else gets to benefit. This sort of selflessness is a part of who I am again because I started practicing Transcendental Meditation.
