Following a Beach Boys concert at Sun City Superbowl in South Africa, singer Mike Love gave an interview in which he discusses how the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM) gives him the energy to cope with the gruelling work of touring, and he advises aspiring musicians to utilize the technique to stay balanced and healthy.
When asked about the influence of Transcendental Meditation on his career as an artist, Mike Love says: 'I honestly don't believe I could be doing what we do, to the degree that we do it—in terms of sheer volume of shows—if I didn't have TM as the basis of activity.'
'Maharishi Mahesh Yogi said so many times, rest is the basis of activity', explains Mr Love, a long-time practitioner and Teacher of Transcendental Meditation.
In giving advice to young musicians, Mr Love comments that many people in the public eye get overshadowed by fame, and they turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with stress and anxiety.
Instead, he says, he highly recommends that they try Transcendental Meditation 'and give it a good shot, and practise it regularly so that they can really gauge the effects on their quality of life.'
Through Transcendental Meditation one has more clarity, better health, and naturally makes better choices, he adds.
From his very first meditation, Mr Love says he thought 'this is such a simple technique that anyone could do it, and if everyone did it would be an entirely different world. And that still holds true,' he concludes.
