I learned TM in May of this year. I had attempted various different forms of meditation in the past but I was not obtaining my desired outcome. After watching the Oprah Winfrey segment on TM I decided to try it. I had suffered from extreme insomina for over 10 years. Had tried every type of medication to help me sleep at night. Even with the medication I was lucky to get 4 hours a sleep at a time each night. Within 3 weeks of learning TM, I was sleeping through the night without any medication whatsoever! I am more focused at work, calmer (I'm very high strung) and a better appreciation of life. It just keeps getting better and better!

Nor did you add anything yourself, if that's what you meant by that.

The fact that it's endorsed by celebrities gives it a cult-like association in my mind. I'll just go for the good old garden variety when I choose to do it, which isn't as often as I would like it to be. I heard once that prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to God. Sounds good and I don't need to drop $1500 on a course to listen to God and then get sucked in further to lose further large amounts of money. No thank you.
