On 18 October 2007 The Jerusalem Post reported: Film director, and four-time Oscar nominee, David Lynch recently met with Israeli film students and politicians to promote Transcendental Meditation and answer questions about his work. 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 field of culture.

The Jerusalem Post reported, 'As he explains at a Monday press conference at Jerusalem's Sam Spiegel Film and Television School, Lynch believes many of Israel's problems could be solved—or at least significantly diminished—were the country to find '250 advanced meditators working day by day to bring harmony, peace, happiness and creativity, and to dissolve this [regional] enmity'.'

'He's not suggesting peace will arrive merely as a result of meditation', the article stated, 'but instead advocates the practice as a way of changing the country's emotional and spiritual balance'.

The Jerusalem Post quoted Lynch as saying, 'I want Israel to have a peace-creating group. Keep everything the same, keep your defenses the same. Just add this group [of meditators] and keep them protected and working.'

He also stated that the group of meditators should be in Israel 'on a permanent basis, radiating a glorious field of unity every day'.

The article noted that the practice of Transcendental Meditation has 'clearly made a difference for him ... leading the filmmaker to establish the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, ... [which] promotes meditation primarily as a boost to children's education.'

The director said that he meditates twice a day, which has helped him during his multi-level artistic career. He also noted that in the United States children's learning improves when Transcendental Meditation is added to the curriculum.

The director also explained the benefits of Transcendental Meditation in separate meetings with Israel's Education Minister Yuli Tamir, with Culture, Science and Sport Minister Ghaleb Majadle, and with President Shimon Peres.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
