An Iraq war veteran describes how the Transcendental Meditation Programme transformed his life from a 'constant anxiety attack' to a feeling of happiness that just keeps growing.
He had turned to alcohol, he said, to escape from the post-traumatic stress (PTSD) of the war. 'When it would creep up, I'd go drink,' he said.
'The first time I meditated, he said, 'I experienced this relief from the constant anxiety attack my life had become.'
He described how he hadn't even realized the extent to which he was 'stressed out' until he had a break from it during his first practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
'Now being someone who has meditated for a year and two months, I'm so happy. I'll never stop.
'It has this compounding effect of just getting better and better—and this great feeling lasting longer and longer the more I meditate.'
His mother also described the profound positive changes she saw in him after he began Transcendental Meditation. Please see Global Good News article Transcendental Meditation saved her son's life, veteran's mother says
