â€œI just watched George Harrison: Living In The Material World this week. Not only is it an awesome documentary, but it goes into great detail on Georgeâ€™s transformation from rock and excess extraordinaire to contemplative, meditative, universal traveller. While it touches on all aspects of George Harrisonâ€™s life, the details of meeting, along with the other Beatles, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi stuck out to me the most. Not just because there are sequences in the film where it â€˜looksâ€™ like theyâ€™re using a silk meditation cushionÂ of ours (the footage is from â€˜67 and I donâ€™t think the ownerâ€™s of the company were born yet or were in diapers at the most), but because they make an excellent case for the merits of meditation outside of the realm of â€œmysticismâ€ or â€œnew ageâ€ philosophies which, in and of themselves, can carry a sort-of smeared image due to too many late night whackos offering enlightenment for 4 easy payment of $19.95.
In any case, if you are looking to get into â€˜that spaceâ€™ of thoughtlessness (VERY different from alcohol induced carelessness), our mediation pillow selection and our meditation cushion are excellent tools for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Our silk varieties even have beautiful ornate patterns if the ambiance is essential to get into that zone (or should I say zen state). We also offer yoga bolster choices (great for other positions outside of lotus), blankets, or even silk eyeÂ pillows if youâ€™re like me and have a hard time keeping your eyes closed or still from fidgeting.Â If you have never attempted controlled meditation, I highly recommend you take time from your busy schedule to find a quiet, comfortable space, and BREATHE DEEPLY, recite your mantra (itâ€™s different for everyone) and enjoy the bliss of pure thoughtlessness.â€œ
