Some intriguing quotes from meditating celebrities …………….

russell-brand_tm transendental meditation 03

“It’s really good if you’ve had addiction issues. Meditation is highly psychological, and very beautiful, and overwhelming, and real, and trippy!”Russell Brand

crow_sheryl on meditation_2

“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.”Sheryl Crow

Paul McCartney on meditation practice_3

“In moments of madness, meditation has helped me find moments of serenity.”Sir Paul McCartney

katy perry on meditation interview

“I start the day with Transcendental Meditation. It puts me in the best mood!”Katy Perry

hugh jackman on meditation_2

“In meditation, I can let go of everything. I’m not Hugh Jackman. I’m not a dad. I’m not a husband. I’m just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it. Nothing has ever opened my eyes like Transcendental Meditation has. It makes me calm and happy, and, well, it gives me some peace and quiet in what’s a pretty chaotic life!”Hugh Jackman

Cameron-Diaz tm trancendental meditation practices

“Meditation is helping you to tap into something that’s already inside of you… that’s you, in essence. That’s something that was super-empowering for me once I grasped that.”Cameron Diaz

… why do they meditate?

Just consider—these are all people who have every cause to be happy about their lives just the way they are. They are either rich, beautiful, or successful—or all of that. They are adored by fans and friends and followers. So it all begs the question… might there be something in life which is more basic, more fundamentally important, than external success, something that even enormously successful people still want? Meditation is a gateway to one’s inner stability and true peace, love and happiness. Celebrity or not, who wouldn’t want to be at peace with the world, and with oneself?

On the other hand, maybe their meditation practice is the cause of some of their success.

Would David Lynch be the director he is without 40 years of Transcendental Meditation training? Would Ramani Ayer or Ray Dalio have earned all their millions without it?

How could Joaquim Chissano have so dramatically improved the state of his country without learning mediation, and offering it subsequently to his whole administration?

By practicing meditation and just trusting in your natural wisdom, depth and integrity, you can certainly become not only happy and harmonious, but perhaps also… one of the famous people who meditate! 🙂
