On 22 May 2008 Voice of America reported: Award-winning film director David Lynch credits his practice of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation Programme with profoundly enhancing his creativity. 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 article detailed Mr Lynch's rise to success. 'His first major career breakthrough came in 1980, when he was asked to direct Elephant Man,' the article stated, a film that 'was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Director'.

However, the article continued, 'an even more profound turning point in Lynch's creative life occurred when he was introduced to Transcendental Meditation.'

Mr Lynch, who the article stated 'has been considered a top-tier Hollywood director for decades' is the author of a new book in which he discusses the relationship of Transcendental Meditation and creativity.

The article reported, 'In his recent book ''Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness and Creativity'', Lynch likens consciousness to an ocean, and the search for creative inspiration and ideas in any field to fishing. ''You put your hook in,'' he explains. ''If it goes in just shallow [water] you're going to get little fish, or fish coming to the surface. But you are not going to get those big huge fish deep down.'' But by expanding consciousness, he says, ''you've got a chance of catching big, big ideas way down deep!'''

Global Good News comment:

David Lynch is also the founder of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.
