I meditate in a very simple way …without any effort. When I learned the Transcendental Meditation technique I was very impressed. I would define it in one phrase, one word: happiness. You experience happiness and bliss
when you practice the technique. For me as a Catholic priest, saying my prayers, celebrating communion, reading the Psalms, is all part of the structure of a religious life and a religious commitment. Transcendental Meditation does not take the place of the communion. It’s a space for personal development that prepares me to experience the liturgy in its fullness.
