    Its supprising how many people meditate.

    Listening to Howard Stern, who is a big TM guy, I was amazed how many celebrities who practice TM.

    They say it has saved lives many times.

    Guess its real.

    A lot of them "say" they meditate I reckon.

    Sounds good for the celebrity interviews in magazines.

    You might be right.

    There must be something to it though, or maybe not! Quite a few non-celebrities practice TM and say it works. I guess if you think it works then maybe it does.


    They are teaching something to fire fighters now a days called "mindfulness". Instead of zoning out, it teaches you to try and be really aware of the complex situation that you are in "right now".

    Sort of a quick meditation that helps you find your center! and have better situational awareness.

    Is Howard still funny? He was the man before he went satellite, I haven't heard him since.

    I don't listen like I once did, and did not listen when he was on terrestrial radio....we could not get it out here.

    I did enjoy him on satellite.

    Yeah, I see people talking about this "mindfulness" on FB from time to time.

    Gives me a good laugh.

    I agree some of it seems kind of hokey.

    The cat I read about has been teaching this stuff to firefighters since the early 90's.
