    I am secretly in love with Russel Brand. The fluidity, coherence and velocity of speech enchants me. His logic, sense of humor and emotional intelligence 😌…

      @Cindy Spiess Guten Morgen Frau Spiess, alle Sprachen und Wörter sind erfunden aber basierend auf gemeinsamen Verständnis und nicht die Behauptung einer Person. Emotional Intelligence kam ohne jegliche Studie bzw. fachliche Belegegung, von einer Person.
      This is what I consider bogus with the term "Emotional Intelligence".

    It is incredible... and marvelous. Whenever Russell speaks, we are projected on a high speed train (i say train cause, even though it is high speed, it´s very still and understandable), the moment Lynch starts speaking, the train becomes one of those vintage, beautiful, sweet trains from past eras, that used go to slow, but smooth, while riding through some gorgeous mountains.

      I can appreciate that. What a number aging can do to a woman. Prayer is my only meditation. I get peace when I hand it all over to the Lord. And it frees me up to realize and benefit from that energy it brings and confidence. Love Russell.

    I feel a sorrow for Brand, he's a brilliant human being who's been devoured by an aberration, his battle in public demonstrates his great strength fighting through, he's literally saving his life in full view.
    Man has balls!!

      @vanda Mikoloski narrr that was just ridiculous and not funny kept interrupting at crucial times. Russell russel russel me me me he just couldn’t stand still how can you be a advocate for mediation and not have the basic skill of stillness. Even David was thinking your not funny and shut up. He even hinted when he sarcastically said exhausting. Even though he knows the host is a spokesmen and has talked to him before he has the audacity to call him out saying he doesn’t believe in mediation when his dedicated his life to promoting. Then he starts blabbering about his women’s retreat when know one asked him.

    wonderful conversation - watching whilst stoned and I have some observations:
    1. I love how respectful RB is to David, often redirecting the conversation to him and making sure he gets proper time to talk and the audience to listen to him.
    2. Found it quite funny that whenever David got too esoteric Bobby had to chime in with a “science alert” to reign it in a little bit 😂

  • Rundark

    So much of this mans work has permeated my life without me even knowing about it. I watched Dune in theaters, and what stood out to me in all the epic cinematography and deep storyline was what Muad'Dib kept telling himself, "Fear is the mind killer". I incorporated that into my life's purpose and exercised it in every situation that was bigger than or outside myself. It kept me alive in some of those situations, and when i see those suffering fear, I tell them, "Fear will kill you before injury will, fear is the real killer, fear is False Evidence appearing Real"
    I never seen David Lynch until I watched an episode of Ancient Knowledge where it featured a clip of him speaking to an audience about consciousness and where it resides and the amount one has is a direct influence in how much awareness one has. By expanding my awareness through studying a great many things that I found interest in, I unintentionally increased my intelligence as well. Prior to this journey I embarked on, I tested out at a respectable 138, but I became aware that I was taking in more information at a noticeable increase in volume.
    I tested again and was 31 points higher than before, that is an unheard of rate of increase for intelligence. So not only does consciousness expand one's awareness, it would seem that awareness increases intelligence. Those words David Lynch said changed my life, I attach no strings to material objects as everything is made of the same thing. So matter doesn't matter, consciousness, pure consciousness is the only thing that deserves our pursuit of. Attaining it is the only goal worthy of achieving as it will make everyone who does a better, more fulfilled, more contributing to life's purpose human being.
    The creator of all things gave this man a significant gift to give all mankind, all mankind has to do is accept it.

      @Edo Blaauw I assume you are more scientific type, so you can think if of like an experiment. But try to get away from that experiment mentality as much as possible when you wouldn't need to use that anymore. I'm a physicist and have found out through my own experimentation things that essentially prove how consciousness and symbols that represent ideas have power. It was really hard for me to do these experiments because I was sure it's scam and I just end up feeling like crap.

      @Edo Blaauw Just give it a try and do not go back, keep doing it; you will see the benefits and you will have experiences of joy, beauty, content, intelligence, insights into your behavior, and the nature of us as humans, man, I just think if people did it this earth would be a paradise. My goodness, meditation is the best thing that I could have ever gotten across in my entire life.

    These two guys, they're both very special people in their own beautiful ways. Russell started out as a bit of a hyperactive drug goof, but he's really become a positive force in our global culture of late. And Lynch, of course, is responsible for some of our era's most important, incredible works of art. I am grateful for both of them. Also, those criticizing Bob Roth probably don't know the role he plays behind the scenes. I'll tell you who appreciates what Bob does... Lynch and Brand!

    Before I watch this as someone who practiced TM and found major benefits I still have nod idea why TM is being pushed in such a financially motivated way. I learned TM. I paid for it. the cost was reduced due to my low income. I get emailed regularly about TM courses, retreats ALL of which are incredibly costly which I could never afford. So back to my question. I cannot understand why the Lynch Foundation needs to exist really. TM should and COULD be a voluntary free program (as in 12 step programs) working through donations and the like. The feeling I get. Well its more than a feeling..... is that TM has become big business. Which is a terrble shame.

    • heliozoa1
      heliozoa1 17 days ago

      Absolutely... that has always made me stay away from TM as being taught by that foundation. It can be done with donations as evidenced by the Vipassana community which is donation based and so incredibly successful that they have several centers in many,many countries all over the world and have had a massive part in spreading mindfulness and meditation to everyone

    After so many years of being big fan of mr David's movies I just found out he is such great meditatior. (I must admit I was just watching movies and never read or watch anything about their background or mr Davids background). I was "taking" movies as I understand them. Not how others explain in books or articles. I practice transcendental meditation for two years now and can't believe experiences I have in meditation are so similar to what you describe ( I watched also your other lecture last night where you describe feeling of bliss). I felt bit alone with this, cant talk to anyone really about it ( to not sound " crazy" ). Dont know any people at higher lever who share experiences and use that "power" for art. Thank you for this. Please make more lectures or please share links to ones that are available online. Best of luck with your foundation. See you in the "feild".

    This is really true! I did it without a break for 4 years / 40 min a day (except for once in 4 years when I was travelling). I used to even do it on the toilet floor of every airport covered by a dustbin bag so I didn't miss a session). Then.... I took a year off from it and ALL hell broke out. So, I started again. It really works!

    I have always liked and admired Mr Lynch as a great film director who first came to my notice when I first watched "Eraserhead", it blew my fucking head up! Now I know that he is also a very intelligent and spiritual man. Personally, I suffer from being drawn into politics but I lived for 20yrs in India where I was taught Hatha Yoga, I have done martial arts since I was 18yrs old, giving up the practice during the decade I was doing Yoga. I still do an hour every morning and I have started to learn Shotokan Karate as a white belt at 66yrs old. Previously I had done 5yrs of Wing Chun and 13 yrs of TKD were I ended up with a third dan just before I left for India. I now realise that at root true martial arts and yoga share many core values and practice of one improves the other. My point I guess is that life is a gift and its never too late to start a new venture. Meditation is as good as anything! Russell also comes across as a caring, intelligent man who is obviously trying to be a good man as I myself am attempting to be

    Brand is larger than life really he can't help himself. Delightful. His mind is always going 80 miles an hour and way ahead of everyone. He needs a lot of intellectual and emotional stimulation or he probably gets bored. It's a blessing and a curse no doubt. But also somewhat childlike, in a good way, open.
    Lynch of course is brilliant and a sweet man.
    Love Brand's understanding of Job, agree with him. I feel like my thoughts are on the right track when I listen to him and happy for the world too.
    Love changes everything, glad these two and the room apparently are part of this sacred goal!!! Yay.

    Russells greatness is in his willingness to humble himself enough to candidly disclose his futile egoic materialistic pursuits and what helped him to transcend all those things, making it easier for other celebrities and any one to do the same and NOT be ashamed of it.

  • Objects in Looking Glass

    I used to self harm and have addiction and now my life is a completely different world. Now I'm so grateful and full of great emotion and yet I feel safe in a way I never have before as a result of presence and meditation. My eyes fill with love and joy and gratitude constantly and the one thing that is different is that I don't have to be my thoughts anymore. I am the sleeping beauty within myself that got awoken by Self (the prince). Our thoughts are internalized external negativities and patterns that we have to choose to activate and identify with to strengthen. We should feel our feelings and witness our thoughts but we have to choose to activate them and give them that extra power. It was gradual in some ways and then hugely cataclysmic in some ways.
    David is so right about the automatic nature of it.
    I read The Deepest Well about ACE scores and mine is 8 which recommended meditation, when I watched Russell Brand who promoted meditation and led me to so many other wonderful things that pushed me to my tipping point of presence.
    It's so amazing.

When a kid turns up at school ,well washed and on time, pronounces all his h's and his t's, then ups the class average with all his grades, his home life will never be questioned, however strange or withdrawn his behaviour at school. Socially successfull parents can hoodwink the social services and even intimidate junior police; these then go on to bully the next disadvantaged people they encounter.

    Love Russell. Is a linguistic genius, and undoubtedly understands THIS. His ego is outrageous though, can't bear it when the attention isn't on him. He's got a way to go yet. Much Love.

    I went to an intro to TM course in Phoenix, AZ held by the couple that runs the program there around 10 years ago. I was going through quite a lot at the time and thought it could really help. At the end I needed to apply for a “hardship”, as the coats were very high to learn the meditation technique. I think around 1500$... anyway I was denied the “hardship” by the TM organization and could not learn TM. I guess I wasn’t needy enough or rich enough? Kind of changed my views, to put it nicely.

      A seminar is indeed needed for TM. That’s the point. I have learned to meditate on my own, just like anyone else. Thanks for your insight though - mapping and researching your way to transcendence. Maybe you should give seminars.

      A seminar is not needed to pursue transcendence. Do some reading & researching and outline ur pathway towards transcendence. Everyone is at different places using different pathways operating at their own pace arriving to various destinations at different times.

    I think it is brilliant how David Lynch describes awareness (pure consciousness) and that Russell brand is connected with God, felt the drive to speak about the humming bird. Now God? Ok! Personal and friendly with God. That is beautiful. That is my reality too. This video is interesting but it reduces consciousness to a technique required. I experienced such a state, consciousness, awareness, bliss, in searching for God and truth, not through a group or religion, just one-on-one, looking for God. And then I found Him, so happy me, and bliss I experienced, pure euphoria. And funny enough I was in sciences at the time, and so they called it mad. They even offered me a pill. A technique can bring you there, but search for and want for God is the best way there! Thank you God, way more than a man You Are... And thank you for Russell too. And for your insight and openness dear David, I thank you. All of your hearts are just beautiful! I may not practice transcendental meditation and have no ill against it. It is but a technique. In the end, it's the destination that matters, not the path taken. Thank You God! I love You! And let's please let YOU SHINE! :o) I send you a great big smile and a kiss, from the heart!

      You are right. The elemental part of human being is erased. If neglected on a personal level it manifests as a crisis on a societal level. With the technology given, the 4 hour work week should be more than enough to survive and the companies should adapt to that, not the other way around. (they optimizing their workforce and yeild.) But that's just what i think, what do YOU think? :D :D Cheers!

      Too much time in my head is a trap. For me it is not the work week. It's all the shoulds and woulds and worries that hook me. Just "being " is what I do all the time but when I disconnect from my body and dwell in my head, it's a slow agonizing existence.

It is useful for many!

    I wonder if TM can help the people of imperialist nations to stop their dependence on (and looting of) the natural resources of non-imperialist nations and to return to living a balanced, sustainable, localized lifestyle...
    Luckily, I believe Russell Brand sees this issue and can bridge the gap between spiritual solutions and material solutions.

    Genuinely curious… what is the rationale behind charging thousands of dollars/pounds to learn the secrets of doing TM? It’s been a while since I checked into it but the expense of it left me quite skeptical. But I’m open to hearing the rationale behind the secrecy and expense.
    And TM vs common meditation?

      @laburgy Learn for free. If of enough means then pay a donation for others to be informed of and inspired to TM. That's what the fee is about. What the donation gives you access to might be of help and might not but you have done good.

      @JG Alegria and there are programs through the David Lynch Foundation for many groups eg troubled teens, service men with PTSD, women subjected to violence, schools with teenage problems, jail inmates.These are some of many areas that are supported by those who can afford to pay for their training. TM teachers, are entitled to an income etc they pay to train, it takes years. TM is incredible , it does simple do what they claim. It is effortless and changed my life two years ago! I am early 70s!

    I'm not going to lie: David Lynch as an artist/movie maker actually scares me. I don't know why, but I sometimes think he may be plugged into something "spooky". Another artist that made me nervous was H.R. Giger. I have not listened to this conversation ^^^ yet, as I make this comment, but it no doubt should be interesting none the less, once I listen to it in it's entirety.
