"The Special Act of Mentioning TM®"
  
                      By Bill Torrington  B.F.A., BEd



"It is an important point to note that each one of us has a fabulous array of communication technology at our disposal ...


If we wished, for instance, to tell someone by "word of mouth” in a short letter about the proven benefits of practicing Transcendental Meditation®, we could:
  • Send our letter by surface mail
  • Send it by email
  • Send it by "text message" on our cellphone
  • Post it to our personal "blog"
  • Post it to "Facebook"


Or – as Rupert Murdoch did recently, on the first day he learned and practiced TM – we could “tweet” all our friends about how great Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation is!

And if, in our letter, "post" or “tweet”, we were to include the simple URL www.tm.org as an active hyperlink to that great Transcendental Meditation  information website, we might even start a chain reaction of "Vedic Knowledge" that could reach many thousands of others.

In fact, I once calculated that if each individual who has already learned and benefitted from Transcendental Meditation in America were to contact just one acquaintance a day about it, then potentially every person in the U.S. would very quickly hear – from a personal friend or associate – not just once, but twice about "TM" within one year!

So in light of this new speed of electronic communication, I would like to describe to you the top priority on my own daily “Must Do” list:




Bill's Daily "Must Do" Item
Number One



                    Never miss an opportunity to do what I call “Telling TM”!

 

I made a commitment to myself three years ago that every person I spoke to in the future would find out about the TM technique.

I accomplish this goal quite easily -- by always carrying the address of my personal art website
www.BillsArtBox.com in my pocket, printed on a small piece of paper about the size of a business card.

On the back of these “TM Art Cards” are the words, “Enjoy Transcendental Meditation”. One of my paintings, a country scene (although for you it could be any nice picture, or a favorite quote) and the internet web address www.tm.org are included.


Kindly see these handy TM invitation cards at

Next, in handing these out to a fellow human being – perhaps, for example, who I have just exchanged a few words with while at a convenience store – I simply say, “And this is for you. It’s my art website.”

They later visit my website – it could also be your own personal blog or professional website – and they find there a picture of



     ............................   their

        ...........................   or  oprah_winfrey.jpg television personality 

 

who also practice Transcendental Meditation. 


Or they see research performed at or published by major institutions on the dramatic health benefits from TM practice

... and as the saying goes, that’s enough said! 

 

 

 

 

 

So may I wish you "Happy TM Telling"
... and have a nice day!"
