Moby, DJ and photographer

Moby on meditation:

“I thought that Transcendental Meditation involved ritual animal sacrifice and moving to some country and renouncing wealth and materialism. /—/ One of the things that impressed me so much about TM when I finally learned it was it’s simplicity. It’s a simple practice that calms the mind… and the thing that won me over about Transcendental Meditation, apart from having my hero David Lynch as its vocal practitioner, was its effectiveness. Nothing else helped me quiet my mind and go to a calm, centred place. The thing that makes it effective is you don’t have to do all that much, and, as a profoundly lazy person, I appreciate that.”
