The basis for ideal relationships is the capacity to give. We can only give from what we have. By dissolving stress and broadening our awareness, The Transcendental Meditation technique provides the foundation for more nourishing relationships, allowing us to give more appreciation and love to family and friends.
In the book Science of Being and Art of Living, Maharishi writes, “Really good social behavior between people will only be possible when their awareness is broadened, when they are able to see the whole situation, to understand each other more thoroughly, to be aware of each other’s need and attempt to fulfill that need. This naturally necessitates a fully developed consciousness, a right sense of judgment, and all the qualities that only a strong and clear mind possesses.”
During TM practice, a decrease in stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol leads to reduced fatigue and stress in life. Scientific research verifies that people who practice the Transcendental Meditation technique experience less anger, less anxiety, and less depression. They naturally express greater tolerance and patience, harmony, and happiness. After a long day of work, women find that twenty minutes of this meditation revitalizes their inner lives. Spontaneously they create more harmonious relationships and enjoy life in increasing waves of fulfillment.
