“In meditation, I can let go of everything. I’m not Hugh Jackman. I’m not dad. I’m not a husband. I’m just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it.”
“Do you know how three days a year you get a good night’s sleep? And you wake up and feel like “Oh, this is how I should feel all the time!” But you can’t get more than 3 good night’s sleep per year because of the circumstances of your life. Well, with TM (meditation) you can have that every day.”
“Like many of you, I was concerned about going into the world and doing something bigger than myself. Until someone smarter than myself made me realize that there is nothing bigger than myself.”
“It’s something that’s with you for your whole life. You learn your mantra, it never leaves you, and it’s the deepest rest your brain gets. For people that are so creative and have this kind of creative faucet that never turns off – it just continues and continues – it can be a little exhausting. And, you know, with the continual responsibility of having 127 people on the road, and always being the point person for everything, my subconscious is going even when I’m sleeping. I’m dreaming about whatever I’m creating next, or relationships, or blah, blah, blah. So I’m never really off. And meditation is actually the one time I get to really reset.”
“That way of being ‘still’ with ourselves – coming back to the center and recognizing that something is more important than you – it’s more important than the work you are doing, brings a kind of energy, an intention that we have never had before.”
“I’m quite an erratic thinker, quite an adrenalized person. But after meditation, I feel this beautiful serenity and selfless connection. My tendency towards selfishness—I felt that exposed as a superficial and pointless perspective to have.”
“One of the things — and this comes from someone who was highly self-critical and a type-A personality — that has changed my life is meditating. The simple act of making my brain shut off for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night may not seem like much, but what ends up happening, besides creating space in your day, is your awake posture begins to replicate your meditative posture.”
