Continuing on from Part II of his presentation on a recent Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Jeffrey Abramson, partner in the largest 'green' real estate development company in the Washington DC area in the United States, introduced the experiences of his employees and spoke about when he himself learnt the Transcendental Meditation Technique 35 years ago.
He noticed that creativity was really a product of the stillness of the mind, the quiet state of the mind (experienced during Transcendental Meditation practice). 'The quieter the mind, the more coherent the mind; the more coherent the mind, the more intuitive it is; the more intuitive, the more flexible,' he said.
One individual at Dr Abramson's family-owned company reported that since practising Transcendental Meditation, his health checkups have never been better. There is a history of high blood pressure and high cholesterol in his family, and his doctor can't believe how perfect these aspects are now. 'You feel relaxed and you feel energized, it's just amazing,' he said.
One lady said she had been interested but cautious about learning Transcendental Meditation; she learnt based on the recommendations of others she knew in the company. Her work environment is very hectic, so she needs to be able 'to come back into myself and quiet my mind so that I can focus' and not spend a lot of energy for little output. She mentioned the well-known business principle, 'work smarter, not harder', and felt this is what meditation has done for her.
Another employee said that Transcendental Meditation has helped so much with his work. 'Before there was never enough time to get everything done in one day. Now with practising Transcendental Meditation, your mind is so clear—when you're looking at a problem, it isn't so severe anymore, [it] is very easily solved, and you move on to the next thing.'
'It clears my mind,' another man said. 'It gives me the ability to not only focus, but prioritize what I have to do. Twenty minutes twice a day results in an extra two hours a day—I don't even know how you measure it, but it is measurable—the amount of work that you can get done, and done the right way the first time.'
