The article features an event several years ago at the University of California at Berkeley, when a packed audience of students listened spellbound as acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch described his first experiences practising Transcendental Meditation, and the effect of the technique over the ensuing 30-plus years on his creative processes and overall enjoyment of life.
When he first learned Transcendental Meditation, he said, he sat down, closed his eyes, started the technique, 'and Boom!—it was like I was in an elevator and they cut the cables and I dove into bliss. Beautiful, beautiful, deep bliss. And that experience was so powerful and so unique—I say that word unique should be saved for this experience. And I never missed a meditation in my 32 years.
'I love that experience and I love the feeling after the experience and what it does,' Dr Lynch went on. 'And there's a side effect to experiencing pure consciousness.* Negativity starts to recede. . . . It's like ramping up a light and negativity, like darkness, starts to go.'
Before learning Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Technique, Mr Lynch said he was disturbed by fears, anxieties, anger. But, he told the student audience, 'fear, anxiety, tension, stress, depression—these things start lifting.'
The experience of growing inner bliss, he said, is like 'money in the bank for a human being to do anything. It's so beautiful how the enjoyment of doing just blossoms. Huge, huge enjoyment of doing when this—I call it the suffocating rubber-clown suit of negativity—begins to dissolve.

* Pure or transcendental consciousness is the silent, unbounded field of pure intelligence at the basis of the mind's activity, which is open to direct experience and can be fully awakened and enjoyed in human life through the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation.
