On 22 January 2007 Washington City Paper reported:
Movie director David Lynch's new book 'Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity' celebrates his long-time practice of Transcendental Meditation. The David Lynch Foundation he established supports Consciousness-Based Education programmes in schools.
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 education.
The Washington City Paper quoted the director as saying, 'Ideas are like fish, and you can catch them. Consciousness plays a role in that, and expanding consciousness and the joy of doing things, bliss, energy. Flow of creativity, fantastic things!'
Making films for Lynch is all about 'the stories'. Expanding peace and bliss, he said, are not going to make stories boring, or saccharine sweet 'with elevator music'.
As the article reported, the director established the David Lynch Foundation in 2005 to promote Consciousness-Based Education in schools, incorporating the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique.
'Schools,' he said, 'are filled with stress, violence, lots and lots of ignorance, and confusion and darkness. Suffering! And I've visited schools with Consciousness-Based Education, seen and talked to the students, and it's a revelation. So beautiful! More and more themselves. Strong, self-assured, bright as a shiny penny.'
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.
