Through Transcendental Meditation one can slip into a "zone," if you like, in which you are thoroughly alert, profoundly relaxed, very joyful in spirits, but unfocused on anything in particular. It's not a thing that you're happy about, and yet you're joyful. It's not a thing that you're thinking about specifically, and yet you're alert. You're not asleep but you're profoundly relaxed. It's a really curious state that is a thing in itself. One thing about Transcendental Meditation, and you hear this from many people who've tried a bunch of different techniques to get to this state, is it's one of the simplest, most practical and effortless ways of accessing the transcendent. In this meditative state the body gains a deep state of rest, deeper than sleep, and deep-seeded stress is dissolved, providing an affective prevention and treatment for stress-related illness, removing the deleterious effects of stress on health and brain functioning. It's a systematic technique to develop the full potential of mind and body.
