Filmmaker David Lynch explains how Transcendental Meditation allows one to 'water the root and enjoy the fruit'. This was a phrase often used by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, to explain how, by attending to the level of pure Transcendental Consciousness at the basis of the mind, one can improve all areas of life.
In his welcome address at the David Lynch Foundation's Second Annual 'Change Begins Within' Benefit Gala in New York City on 13 December, Mr Lynch presented a painting of a beautiful tree.
He asked the audience to imagine that the tree's leaves had started falling and yellowing and the tree in general was not in good shape. 'This represents the lives of so many of us today. And we try to attack the problem at the level of the leaves—surface cures,' he said.
If one tries to fix each individual leaf, chances are one will make a single leaf green again, only to find that six more have turned brown. An experienced gardener, however, knows to just water the root to make the entire tree healthy and green.
'This is the process of Transcendental Meditation. You can look at Transcendental Meditation as a key that opens the door to the big treasury within, the unbounded ocean of pure vibrant consciousness within every human being.'
Through the experience of Transcendental Consciousness one grows in intelligence, happiness, energy, etc, with the side-benefit that anxiety, tension, sorrow, depression, rage, need for revenge, fear—all start to lift away.
Transcending waters the root of life, Mr Lynch said. One's full potential begins to unfold, 'and life gets better and better'.
Mr Lynch's conclusion: 'Water the root and enjoy the fruit.'
