RUSH: Anyway, who’s next on this program? Linda in Jackson, Mississippi. Hello.

CALLER: Hello?

RUSH: Hello.

CALLER: Hello, Mr. Limbaugh.

RUSH: Hi Linda, how are you?

CALLER: I’m just wonderful. Thank you so much —

RUSH: You’re welcome.

CALLER: — for educating me in the ways of politics.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: And thank you so much for taking my call.

RUSH: You’re welcome.

CALLER: I had a very simple little question I’ve thought of for probably ten years, maybe not that long. I wanted to ask you, and then I told Mr. Snerdley I had one simple question, I decided maybe I should make it as a statement, therefore being a perfectly honest, wonderful human being you are, you would not be forced to have to answer. So I’ve concluded over listening to a few statements that you’ve made over the years that you must practice TM. And you don’t have to answer me if you don’t want to, because you are such a wonderful, gracious gentleman, one of the things —

RUSH: Well, now, wait a second, but you are curious. I understand the structure that you have created here, making your statement in observation form, thereby not requiring me to provide an answer, but you still are curious.

CALLER: I’m still what?

RUSH: You’re not curious?

CALLER: I am curious.

RUSH: You are curious, yes.

CALLER: But I didn’t want to put you on the spot because —

RUSH: Well, you’re not putting me on the spot.

CALLER: Well, it’s a question that may ostracize you a little bit because it’s looked upon as kind of, you know, something strange to practice, Transcendental Meditation.

RUSH: Cosmic consciousness? There’s nothing strange about —

CALLER: It’s not, maybe not more so where you’re from than where I’m from. It is not as strange as —

RUSH: How many times a day do you meditate?

CALLER: Twice a day for thirty years.

RUSH: Are you on the road to cosmic consciousness?

CALLER: I would like to think so, yes, sir.

RUSH: Because that’s the objective of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

CALLER: Yes, sir, and I think you’re very much there, too, because you keep bumping into me in my lucid dreams.

RUSH: A-ha. That helps a lot. So when you are meditating, which is another way to lucid dream —

CALLER: No, no, lucid dream is when you’re asleep.

RUSH: Oh, you’re talking about when you’re sleeping.

CALLER: Yes, meditating.

RUSH: Linda? Linda, I’ve heard that line before. I mean, when I was younger, I used to use that line all the time. You know I had a dream about you?

CALLER: No, it’s not that kind of dream. A lucid dream is when you observe your dreams.

RUSH: Yeah, but I mean I’m still in ’em.

CALLER: Yeah. It’s not a pickup line. I’m not trying to pick you up.

RUSH: Well, I didn’t think you were.

CALLER: Although, you did make a comment once a couple years ago, my husband and I heard you talking about being at a party and that you wished you could meet some real people. We volunteer. We’re real people. We would love to meet you.

RUSH: Oh, that’s awfully sweet. You’ve got a great memory. I do not practice Transcendental Meditation. I know people who have, and that’s why I know the terminology.

CALLER: Good. Okay.

RUSH: And I know about the mantras.

CALLER: Uh-huh.

RUSH: I have talked about Maharishi University, which is in Iowa.

CALLER: Yes, sir.

RUSH: And I did say, you know, you got a basketball team there, and I said the official cheer is ‘block that vibe,’ rather than —

CALLER: Yes, sir. Well, I thought you must have some familiarity with it, or maybe being in such a high state of consciousness as you are in, maybe that was one of the tools you used.

RUSH: Wish it were. I wish I could tell you it was, but it’s not. Even though I’m familiar with it, as I say, I’ve known some people who have done it, but they don’t do it any longer. Anyway, Linda, you’re so sweet. I’m glad you called.
