Transcendental Meditation -
Pure Bliss On Tap
What is Transcendental Meditation?
Have you tried other meditation techniques and found it hard to empty your mind, or couldn’t concentrate? Well then, this technique
is for you.
TM does not require concentration or contemplation. It is the simplest, most effortless meditation technique there is.
The TM technique is so effective because it is in accordance with the laws of nature that govern human awareness.
First, it takes into account the fact that the mind has a lot of thoughts and it constantly moving from one to another. So forcing
it to be still can be a challenge.
Secondly, the mind is always seeking something more, so it will never be satisfied. So the only way is to go beyond objects and
into awareness of itself.
If the mind is like the waves of the sea, then TM is like diving through the waves down to calm waters. Ultimately, you settle down in the space between your thoughts.
This space, between your thoughts, is pure consciousness, a field of possibilities, a field of creativity, pure creativity,
pure intelligence and pure love.
And you don't have to go anywhere to find it. Pure consciousness is just the simplest form of your own awareness, located at the source of thought.
TM technique allows you to access this field at the source of thought; the primordial and the ground state of your existence.

And since the mind is not engaged meaning of the sound or word, it is free to take its natural direction - straight toward the source of thought.
