Why filmmaker David Lynch says Transcendental Meditation is the secret to success   Leave a comment

LA Times June 2016
David Lynch in the LA TimesDavid Lynch says he hasn’t missed a day of Transcendental Meditation since he started practicing it 43 years ago.
The director and writer behind the cult TV series “Twin Peaks” and movies including “Mulholland Drive” was in Los Angeles recently to lend support to Georgetown University School of Medicine clinical psychiatrist Norman Rosenthal who was speaking on a panel about his new book, “Super Mind: How to Boost Performance and Live a Richer and Happier Life Through Transcendental Meditation.” Lynch, 70, told us in a one-on-one after the panel why he believes TM is the secret to … well, everything:

Why do you believe TM can make us healthier?
So many illnesses are called stress-related illness and stress can kill you. Look at what post-traumatic stress does to people – look at vets… Stress can shut down so much in a human being. If you want to get rid of it, you transcend every day.

What was happening in your life that made you more open to TM when you were first exposed to it?
I think there’s a thing in life or something clicks, either you’re fed up with suffering or you become a kind of seeker, you sense there’s something more to life… There is a line, ‘know thyself’… It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing to experience that… True happiness is not “out there”; true happiness lies within.
