When I think back to transcendental meditation with my own secret mantra my thoughts always go quickly to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's infectious laugh. Well, his silly little giggle, actually. If there's one thing that I learned it's all tied up in "don't worry, be happy." I guess I could have saved a few bucks and stuck with Alfred E. Neuman and "what, me worry?"
Now, I'm not gonna live long enough to ever be called wise. I do know this: the more I know, the happier I am. My significance in the big picture becomes clearer. Once I thought of myself as a grain of sand on the beach. Now, of course, I realize what an overblown concept that was.
We're here for loving and laughing and crying. What a ride!
