My Life Without Meditation

The following is written by Karlie Everhart and originally published on her blog.  I started meditating ten years ago. At the time, I had suffered from intermittent bouts of anxiety and was looking for a way to calm the surmounting pressure I constantly applied to myself. The only new-agey person I was familiar with was Gabrielle Bernstein, so I bought her book and her companion meditation CD and that’s how I started.

The Pleasant Parallels of TM and Day-To-Day Life


Bob Roth said something before going into a meditation that was a game changer for not only my TM practice but also my life. On one of Bob’s group meditation calls (which I highly recommend) just before the meditation started he said: Start the meditation without any expectation of any results. Hm. That landed on me and left an instant imprint. The idea of meditating and not expecting was an idea the ego did not like. And that’s how I knew it was a good idea. Much to the chagrin of my ego, that meditation in particular was a special one. I went...
