WHY I MEDITATE (read time 1:00 min)
I began meditating daily in 1985 and I must say that the balance I’ve found in my life between the hoopla of rock & roll and the silence of my soul is astounding. I’m not sure who I would be without this one simple practice in my life. As a vintage meditator I have taught (shared) a unique, simple method of meditating to hundreds of people over the years, including a 10-year stint at two California Federal Penitentiaries, teaching maximum-security prisoners how to tame the beast within and quite the incessant chatter in their heads.
That said, here’s precisely why I meditate:
Om sweet Om...

Hi Michael - I really enjoy reading your blogs! It also reminds me of the good old times when you and Music Connection helped creating our first New Age Conferences in Hollywood. Did you meditate back then already? Just curious ... Blessings Suzanne

The Psalms in the Old Testament of the Bible is full of information on mtitiaedon. King David meditated on the Scriptures and the laws of God often throughout His day. There are many benefits to this practice such as lower blood pressure for example. What is mtitiaedon? Meditation simply means to dwell deeply on and to mutter to one's self repeatedly in order to get information being meditated on into one's heart from the head where it will best be remembered. Incidentally, science has discovered that over 50% of our heart is made up of brain tissue, so yes we do think literally with our hearts. For proper mtitiaedon, get comfortable and dismiss all disturbing thoughts out of your mind. Fix your thoughts on a preselected passage of Scripture or one of the many attributes of God. If you like, play soft music [without words], and this will help with concentration. For best results meditate for a total of 47 minutes daily. After 28 days of this, it is proven that your d.n.a. will even change for the better. You will be able to focus better, and improve memory skills.

| Meditation & Prayer |
After I started praying and meditation in 1971 and my life changed so radically, there was a coincidence: I had quite a number of therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists who, they were atheists, all agreed that all the successful people that they knew had something like meditation and prayer in their lives. The example that they loved to give was Arnold Schwarzeneggar, who, when he would do his daily exercises, wouldn't pick up the phone ---- even if the president would call.
