In an interview for the show 'How I Rock It' on the new Esquire TV Network, filmmaker David Lynch described how he develops and gains personal happiness and inner peace in his style and work through the art of Transcendental Meditation.
Mr Lynch, who began practising the meditation technique almost 40 years ago, and has 'never missed a meditation', described the contrast in how he felt before and after learning Transcendental Meditation.
'I was always fairly optimistic, but inside was deep torment,' Mr Lynch said. 'I was filled with anxieties, stress, and I had a lot of anger. And then I heard a phrase, ''True happiness is not out there, true happiness lies within.'' '
He learned Transcendental Meditation and his life began to change. 'You're infusing so much happiness, and these all positive qualities, all positive starts growing, and it feeds the work and it's a tremendous sense of freedom. . . .
'Everything, they say, comes from the unified field, there's an ocean of it within every human being. And you tap into that and it serves the work, no matter what kind of work you're doing —dive in day after day and life gets better and better.'
Interspersed with segments of the interview are video clips from a pre-screening reception for the film Meditation Creativity Peace, Lynch's documentary about his 16-country tour of Europe and the Middle East several years ago promoting Transcendental Meditation, which premiered in the USA last spring at the Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles.
The interview aired on 16 December on Esquire Network (tvesquire.com), a new American cable and satellite TV network, owned by NBCUniversal and Esquire Magazine.
