NBC host Tamron Hall described Transcendental Meditation as going from active, noisy levels of the mind to 'a silent, stress-reducing level'. She reviewed how the technique helps students, sufferers of Post Traumatic Stress—people from all walks of life.
John Butler mentioned that TM teachers in New York are extremely busy these days, with full halls at introductory lectures on Transcendental Meditation. He explained that 'people are finding out that the answers have to come from within; that we see in the press and in politics the same problems over and over—where do the solutions come from? From within.'
He noted the increasing pressures many people experience in their lives, stemming 'from technology speeding up the pace of life to the point where activity has greatly over-balanced. Missing is the amount of silence, the amount of down time, the amount of rest—to the point where we suffer, we feel like life is a struggle, a burden—it's not. It's easy.'
John went on to describe the three general types of meditation and the value of the simple and automatic nature of transcending during Transcendental Meditation. He said, 'How to fit the practise into your day? If you squeeze in this one technique twice a day, you find things begin to open up. You find yourself more clear, you prioritize better and instead of all the endless little things that are distracting us, we just focus on what we want to do . . . . and this goes easily'.
