In 2007, film director David Lynch authored the book 'Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness and Creativity', in which he attributes his creativity to his practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique, and proposes that all children around the world should have the opportunity to meditate.
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 world peace and education.
The article stated, 'If he has his way, all the children of the world—red, yellow, black, white—will . . . attain . . . enlightenment.'*
With this goal in mind, his David Lynch Foundation has raised millions of dollars toward the ultimate goal of $7 billion, which 'would permanently establish groups of people practicing TM together, and change the entire world to one of peace', the article stated.
The article quoted Mr Lynch as saying that this would mean the 'End of suffering. End of negativity. All good things for all of us! It'd turn us into a true world family where diversity would be fully appreciated in the light of its preexisting unity.'
He continued, 'And it would be incredible! Think of the ideas that would flow out of that kind of scenario and how rapidly we would lurch forward into huuuge evolution. Good for everybody. It would be incredible. It's magical. It's profound. It's huuuge. And it's already in the works, but I would like to raise that money. And it just takes wealthy well-wishers of humanity to suddenly see that this could be a reality, a real thing, and bag it. It just takes that.'
Mr Lynch said that when one learns the technique of Transcendental Meditation, which allows one to transcend, it is like receiving a key to unlock the door of the treasury.
He stated, 'You can know about the treasury. You can hear all kinds of things about it, but you can't experience it unless someone gives you the key to that door. When you get the key, the door easily opens and you experience the treasury within.'
He explained that when the mind transcends it naturally wants to go to deeper levels of happiness.
Mr Lynch said, 'And when it transcends and experiences the big ocean of pure vibrant consciousness, man oh man! What an experience. And the experience enlivens the ocean, enlivens consciousness, and you grow in intelligence, creativity, love, bliss, and inner-happiness like you can't believe. You grow in energy—you don't get sleepy and stupid, you get packed with inspiration. There's the expression, 'Know thy self,' and this is that, but the big Self, the Self of us all. When you unfold that, you unfold your full potential, which is enlightenment, fulfillment, liberation, total freedom, end of suffering, immortality.'
When large groups of people meditate together it creates waves of harmony and happiness.
'And the world lifts up into happiness and harmony, negativity goes away, and you got a whole new ballgame,' the director stated.
