Whether one is searching for inner beatitude or simply to move through each day with grace, the Transcendental Meditation technique naturally unfolds the wholeness of one's inmost Self—the spiritual essence of life.
During TM practice, the mind effortlessly transcends or goes beyond its busy, active state to become settled and more awake inside. Even if fraught with worries or anxieties, one can dive deep within to experience an inner realm of bliss and timeless silence.
This experience of transcendence is said to be spiritual because there is no material content present in this state—just pure Being, beyond space-time and conceptualization and dogma. Such experiences have long been described by the great spiritual traditions of every culture but have been deemed mystical and hard to attain.
Neuroscience and spiritual experience
Neuroscience has helped demystify transcendence. Studies on brain functioning during the TM technique verify that the experience of heightened awareness has its own EEG pattern or brain wave signature: high amplitude alpha coherence.
With regular TM practice, this unique and more orderly style of brain functioning, along with increased balance and calmness in the physiology, allows one to naturally enjoy more powerful focus and greater appreciation and compassion in daily life. Love and goodness flow spontaneously without having to consciously try to behave more spiritually.
