30 years of transcendental meditation

In addition to being a prestigious American filmmaker, David Lynch has over 30 years of practicing Transcendental Meditation and in 2005 he founded the David Lynch Foundation, an organization that promotes conscious-based education as a path to achieve world peace. In this video he talks about the technique applied to creativity and in his letter of presentation of the Foundation he tells us the reasons and intentions that led him to its foundation:

‘In this modern world that we live in, full of fear and uncertainty, each child should have one class period a day to dive within themselves and experience the quiet and happiness of the vast amount of energy and intelligence that is deep within each one of us. This is the way to save the new generation.

Over more than 30 years, I have ‘dived’ within me through the Transcendental Meditation technique. Mi life and my world have changed and I am not the only one. Millions of people from all aged, religions and lifestyle practice this technique and enjoy its incredible benefits.

Someday, hopefully very soon, ‘inner dive’ will be considered as a basic preparation technique for learning and a tool to develop the creative potential of the mind and will become a standard and recognize part of each school’s curriculum. Today world’s tensions are a huge burden to our children. There are hundreds of schools, with thousands of children, who are willing to relieve stress and discover each student’s full potential by providing this type of consciousness-based education.

The Foundation was established to ensure that every child in America who wants to learn and practice Transcendental Meditation, is able to. TM’s (Transcendental Meditation) Program has been thoroughly researched, and it is widely practiced throughout the World to develop all the full creative potential of the brain and mind, improve health, reduce stress and improve academic outcomes. We offer grants to students so they can learn the technique and receive full monitoring program throughout their school years, and to ensure they receive the maximum benefit. We also offer grants to students willing to attend the growing number of schools and universities founded under this approach.

I’ve had the pleasure to meet many students that ‘dive’ within them and experience consciousness-based education. These students are unique individuals. They are amazing, self-sufficient, fully awake, full of energy, happy, creative, intelligent and ultimately humans. Their experience is the proof that consciousness-based education is deeply good for our schools and our world.

Individual peace is the foundation for world peace. By offering the next generation a consciousness-based education, we can promote a solid foundation for a healthy, harmonic and pacific world. To this end, the Foundation also supports the establishment of Universities of World Peace, which will train the next generation in a new profession: peace professional.

Thank you very much for your interest. And, please, remember that consciousness-based education is not a luxury. For our kids, who are growing up in a stressful and frightening global crisis, is a necessity.’

Ante todo es un luchador —contra otros boxeadores, contra la herencia de los antepasados que esclavizaron a los suyos (nacido Cassius Clay, cambió su nombre por ese motivo), contra el gobierno estadounidense al negarse a ir a la guerra de Vietnam o contra su Alzheimer final— y una figura excepcionalmente valiente y coherente que ha influido en la sociedad como pocos personajes del siglo XX. Gracias a él, entre otros, muchos americanos descendientes de africanos aprendieron a relacionarse mejor con sus orígenes. Famoso también por sus sentencias ingeniosas y llenas de humor, incluso hay quien le ve como un precursor del rap. En este vídeo, respondiendo a la pregunta de un entrevistador, nos explica su receta de la vida: —4 tazas de amor —1 cuchara de paciencia —1 cucharilla de generosidad —1 pinta de bondad —1 cuarto de placer —1 pizca de motivación Mezclar todo con voluntad, felicidad y montones de fe, después remover y extender durante toda una vida.Muhammad Ali is a former and African American boxer, three-time world champion heavyweight, but he is much more than that. First and foremost is a fighter —against other boxers, against the heritage of ancestors who enslaved his people (born Cassius Clay, changed his name for that reason), against the US government by refusing to go to the Vietnam War or against his final Alzheimer— and an exceptionally brave and consistent figure that has influenced society as few characters of the twentieth century. Thanks to him, among others, many Americans of African descent learned to relate better to their origins. Famous also for its ingenious humorous sentences, some even see him as a forerunner of rap. In this video, answering an interviewer's question, explains his recipe for life: —4 cups of love —1 table spoon of patience —1 tea spoon of generosity —1 pint of kindness —1 quarter of laugh to —1 pinch of concern Mix all with purpose, happiness and lots of faith, then stir it up and spreading it during a lifetime."

Puede definirse como la aceptación de un enunciado realizado por alguien con determinada autoridad, conocimiento o experiencia, o bien como la suposición de que algo reflexionado por uno mismo es correcto aunque falten pruebas para llegar a una certeza sobre ello. La fe y la confianza van de la mano, y las causas por las cuales las personas se convencen de la veracidad de algo aceptándolo por fe dependen de los principios filosóficos en los que se confía y de otros aspectos de tipo emocional o cultural. 'Ainda dá tempo' —Aún hay tiempo— es un proyecto de Colisão Filmes que pretende mostrar que, para conseguir un cambio, antes es necesario creer que es posible. El mundo es de todos y necesita de nuestra fe y optimismo para que el deseo de cambio se transforme en un cambio real, y eso precisa de una transformación interna: cambiando la manera de pensar cambiamos el modo de actuar, y actuando se cambia el mundo.Faith is confidence or belief in something or someone. Can be defined as the acceptance of a statement made ​​by someone with some authority, knowledge or experience, or as the assumption that something created by oneself is correct although there are not any proves to arrive at a certainty about that something. Faith goes hand in hand with trust, and the reasons why people are convinced of the truth of something by faith depend on the philosophical principles in which trust and other emotional or cultural aspects. 'Ainda dá tempo' —There is still time— is a project by Colisão Filmes aiming to make people realize that to make a change, we must first believe that it is possible. The world belongs to all of us and needs our faith and optimism so that our will to change becomes a real change, and this needs starting from within: by changing our way of thinking, we change our way of acting and by acting we change the world.
