Meditation And Creativity, by David Lynch

We’ve been told many times that meditation facilitates the creative process but it is interesting to hear filmmaker David Lynch speak about transcendental meditation and how it impacts the creative side of the brain.

Lynch explains how meditation freed his mind of negative things like anger and anxiety, which often stalled his creativity and affected his personal relationships. As soon as he was able to get rid of these feelings, he could experience pure bliss and unbounded creativity.

Here is a memorable quote from his talk: “If you have a golf-ball-sized consciousness, when you read a book, you’ll have a golf-ball-sized understanding; when you look out a window, a golf-ball-sized awareness, when you wake up in the morning, a golf-ball-sized wakefulness; and as you go about your day, a golf-ball-sized inner happiness. But if you can expand that consciousness, make it grow, then when you read about that book, you’ll have more understanding; when you look out, more awareness; when you wake up, more wakefulness; as you go about your day, more inner happiness.”
