Dr David Lynch explains why one might learn to meditate: go to the depths of life so that life on the surface is enriched.
Speaking in a short talk on www.dlf.tv following the success of the concert held in New York on 4 April in aid of his foundation teaching Transcendental Meditation to one million students, Dr David Lynch spoke about why one might meditate.
He said that this reminded him of an expression that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi used for 50 years—'Water the root and enjoy the fruit.'
Dr Lynch explained that this means 'get it from the very, very depth, the roots. Get that nourishment at the root level, which is the transcendental level, pure consciousness, creativity, intelligence, bliss, energy, love. These are the qualities of this deepest level, this unified field.
Dr Lynch said that one must first get there to enliven this level, and then it comes up automatically. Giving the example of a tree, he said, 'If you picture the individual as a tree—automatically the whole tree comes up to perfection. All the little yellow sick leaves start becoming green, because you've got the thing coming from the very source. Up they come green, and the branch are strong, automatically. You can't solve the problems on the surface. You can't go from one sick leaf to another and try to make them green.'
He added that people try to do that, but it doesn't work. 'Get it from the very source,' he said.
