Dalio — founder and CEO of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund — has built many of the TM principles into his firm’s culture.
“I’m a go, go, go type of person and my whole family are the same, we call my mam Speedy, she hates sitting down.
But it was when I became pregnant first time around, I discovered transcendental meditation, and it literally transformed my life.”
“Before, I’d always been skeptical about meditation, because I couldn’t do it. My brain was too scattered and I couldn’t keep still. The whole “Imagine yourself walking through a field of white flowers …” thing? I can’t do that shit, and I hate people talking to me when I’m meditating. But TM tapped into something for me; they give you a short mantra that you recite in your brain, and if your brain goes off onto other tangents, then so be it. It’s still meditation. (I remember when I first spoke to my instructor, I said, “I don’t think I’m doing this right, because my meditation this morning was 20 minutes of me thinking about the last episode of Game of Thrones!”) I’ve done TM every day consistently for the last year, and I can’t cope without it now; when I meditate for 20 minutes, I feel like I’ve woken up from a refreshing nap.”
“Done TM everyday since Saturday and slept all night for first time in 6 months last night!!”

Agree with most of the below! When you sort the “perfect health & happiness codswallop” from the actual reality, there can be no doubt that a meditation practice puts the sparkle back into ones everyday life.
Happy New Year 🙂
