On 26 January 2007 Seattle Times reported:
On a recent visit to Seattle, Washington, filmmaker David Lynch talked about his film, book, and source of bliss, Transcendental Meditation.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of education.
The director explained that the title of his new book 'Catching the Big Fish: (Meditation, consciousness, and creativity)' referred to catching ideas.
He was quoted by the Seattle Times as saying, 'And we don't know quite how it happens, but suddenly, bango! There's an idea! And I picture it as, the idea was there. It comes up and it enters the conscious mind, and then bingo! We see it. And not only do we see it, but we know it, all in an instant.'
Describing the experience of bliss, he continued by saying, 'It's such a beautiful thing, and we all have some of it. There's a phrase, ''True happiness is not out there. True happiness lies within.'''
The article explained how the director's hunt for bliss led him to the Transcendental Meditation technique, which fulfilled that desire, and eventually he created The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace so that school children could expand their consciousness and enjoy bliss as well.
'In consciousness-based education,' the article quoted him as saying, 'you allow that student to dive within twice a day, and what happens is the light of the unified field—pure consciousness—starts being enlivened by the experience of transcending, and it starts growing.' As students become happier, he explained, they have less stress, fear, anxiety, depression, and anger. 'They start getting along better with their teachers, and the knowledge gets easier to understand, easy to appreciate.' He noted that 'the success rate is phenomenal' in schools that adopt this programme.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
