The likelihood is that they are some combination of that, but the truth is that none of those things are even necessarily related to one another. Some popular celebrities, such as Russell Brand, Russell Simmons, David Lynch, and Phil Jackson may not strike you as the types to meditate on a fairly regular basis, but all have espoused this relaxation method as a part of their everyday lives. Brand has suggested that meditation helped clear himself of his vices. Simmons has been vegan for over 10 years and recently wrote in his book “Super Rich: A Guide to Having it All” that a person can become deeply satisfied with their life by reaching a state of bliss related to non-neediness. Lynch runs a foundation that provides meditation classes to traumatized veterans and needy people. Jackson’s habits have been perhaps more talked about if only because of how rare they might be in the ego-oriented National Basketball Association; prior to retiring from the L.A. Lakers coaching position, commentators regularly referred to him as “The Zen Master,” and the approach (along with several all-time greats) won him 11 championships.
