This week filmmaker David Lynch, who has practised Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation Technique for over 30 years, answered questions from around the world about how TM has increased his creativity, focus, and happiness--a topic discussed in his new book 'Catching the Big Fish'. David Lynch also talked about how Transcendental Meditation can improve education and create a peaceful world. The live interview with David Lynch was highlighted on the home page of the WashingtonPost.com.
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 fields of education and world peace.
The WashingtonPost.com quoted David Lynch as saying that the Transcendental Meditation Technique 'expands consciousness, creativity, energy, intelligence and it's that expansion of those qualities that allow a person to more easily catch ideas [and] find solutions to problems.... It also allows any person to dive within, experiencing the deepest level of life, the unified field, a field of pure bliss consciousness.'
With this experience, 'you expand bliss, intense happiness. You enjoy the doing of things more and more,' Mr Lynch is quoted as saying.
Mr Lynch also answered a question about his initiative to improve education and help create world peace by offering Transcendental Meditation to students.
'If you give students a chance to dive within and know the Self, to experience pure consciousness, creativity, energy, bliss, bliss, bliss and more bliss—you'll see these students become happier, from the inside, you'll see them become more creative, you'll see their IQs go up, you'll see them get along better. You'll see them take in knowledge so much more easily, you'll see their grades go up, you'll see things like fear and hate and stress evaporate. Day by day, these students will become more themselves, more in love with the world, and human beings of the world will be like a family to them. You'll give them something that will transform their lives, from the deepest level of life, and something that won't go away. You'll give them a technique that will take them to their full potential. And that's what education is supposed to do. They'll still learn about physics and chemistry and art, but inside them they'll have this huge happiness, flow of creativity and ability to fill their desires. A student who is a unit of a peaceful world, not a world like we have now,' the WashingtonPost.com quoted David Lynch as saying.
