    I love how simple everything is for him. It's so frustrating for most people to process. Alot of people think he's smug or full of himself, but he just is who he is. There isn't always a huge explanation behind the creative process, alot of it is quirky and simple changes on our perceived environment.

      @Xeokym right..well put. Ok we're in agreement. Taking the middle road!

    • Xeokym

      @Greg1 McIntosh I didn't say to walk around pie-eyed in Lala Land, I just said that people who try to control everything are miserable because no one person can control everything or everyone around them. Obviously being naive & ignorant isn't the way to go; nor does it mean just sit there doing nothing when everything is going to hell all around you. People who lull themselves into a false sense of security aren't any better off. This is what "taking the middle path" means in Buddhism; the extremes will not make you happy. Don't be gluttonous, but you don't have to starve yourself, either.

      @Xeokym I used to have that way of being two decades ago but I have found that acting and living in that zone all the time drives insecure people around you nuts to the point that some of them actively pull the carpet out from underneath you and you go flying. I agree with what you're saying, but if everyone goes around pie eyed in a kind of la la land, passively not reacting to mounting resistance and tyranny but opportunist powertrippers it's just a matter of time before we end up in an orwellian society which is where we're headed right now sorry to say. I think one has to find the right balance between serenity and reactivity to aggression of the personal level and the national level. It's all only because of passivity that the Western world has been completely hypnotized by a false narrative around covid-19, the pandemic, and vaccines. My friends get mad at me for getting upset about the tyranny underlying all of that because they live in that Serene State all the time and mindlessly comply to Draculuan rules that have misled society that leads to loss of freedoms and tyranny.. then one is forced to have to fight back and it's what leads to war. Got to find the balance between serenity and pushing back against tyranny

      @Darnell Major that's what I mean people confuse this kind of speech with being arrogant but it's just being confident which is different from being arrogant unfortunately insecure people see confident behaviors being arrogant when usually they tend to be more generous and kind

    i went to this one in Oregon! It was sooo coool! I wasn't going to be able to go because my husband had another event he had to attend for work. Something happened at the last minute and it was canceled and I was able to attend with a friend! Everything happens for a reason. I am so grateful that David Lynch is helping our future!

    I didn't realise that David Lynch was so involved with TM and is investing his own time and money to spread the word. He is a fascinating person just because of the films he makes but the fact that he does so much for TM really shows how selfless he is. He should be commended for what he does. I practice TM and I can honestly say it is well worth investing in it because the person who benefits most from it is yourself. It's like sending yourself on the holiday of a lifetime only the effects last for ever. It is not a cult - once you learn it that's the last money you spend on it and you don't become a zealot about it because you know the truth of it. It's simply a human learning how to look after him/herself correctly and to get the benefits of doing that.

    I see most of the comments are about pricing. As far as I know, his foundation grants plentiful scholarships (free TM training) to many types of people: children, veterans, PTSD and survivors of violent situations, prisoners, people with terminal disease. Most TM practitioners offer a sliding scale. David even makes this clear in answering the first question. David Lynch truly believes in the power of TM and has advocated for it for over thirty years.

  • The Order Of Asterales

    Vedic meditation is free to all who will practice.
    It's something you can do for yourself & the unified field is there as an attainment irrespective of class, which we all pay into by our willingness to become prostrate.
    An enlightened benevolence is always valued by those who're paying attn (cultivating awareness/growing awarenes beyond the "golf ball size") & so the rewards of teaching to the strength of a good example are manifold.
    Transcendence is the thing;
    TM IS a cult & the exorbitant fees paid in go to the wealthy cabal at the top.
    That said, I don't believe David takes anything.

    I've actually "touched" on the Mantra ONCE in my life and it was literally a second and trust me it's worth the money to find a quick way there BUT I did find it by mistake I think I was so happy that I was clean off drugs and drink and also gave up smoking that I just thought about it I thought about the positive effects and how well I had done at that stage.
    It happened for a second @ Mantra I do believe that being a good person and being happy will lead you there but how wonderful to have a shortcut to that place so I could "grow" there for longer :)

    I took a nap today, didn't set an ala but I needed to wake up soon.
    half an hour to an hour later, I hallucinated my whole family coming into my room(I think my dad really did) to wake me up, then I imagined internal-monologue-like voices telling me that it was time to wake up.
    it was quite interesting, I must say
    felt startled at first, but then I found it fascinated that such a phenomena can actually exist inside minds and ultimately in the natural universe.

    I understand that people sometimes only attach importance to things that they pay for however I am disappointed still to learn that even with a foundation and the fact that Mr. Lynch himself is a multimillionaire, That people literally have to pay to learn and continue to practice transcendental meditation. This is not a movement this is the religion because what other organizations the deal with spirituality other than religions ask people for money. I’m disgusted.

  • The Selfish Meme

    I’ve had one unification religious experience & it was exactly as Mr Lynch describes it. Now I came about it by means other than transcendental meditation but it was the exact same understanding & experience. Thus transcendental meditation is but one of many paths to the top of this mountain.
    Furthermore, this mountain has twin peaks. Mr Lynch & myself had the good fortune of finding our ways to the top of the Eastern Peak of Mount Unification Experience.
    There is a Western Peak that mystics from all of the different Abrahamic faiths have arrived on. They experience complete union with the one god almighty, creator of all existence, whose power & love is perfect & infinite, in & for whom they have a tremendously deep & abiding faith & love

    • Shakhter Siren'
      Shakhter Siren' 2 days ago

      Same peak, different flags.
      we all have different interpretations of the experience, after all, all empirical experience is subjective.
      also, this experience is certainly spiritualistic, but not religious in any way.
      I'm an atheist and I do not find it necessary to bring anything mystical or metaphysical into the picture, besides the counciousness field, which can itself be an emergente phenomena from quantum information/entropy/information/Energy/chaos/complexity/density of something that multiplies all those.
      my only objection to TM's interpretation of it, is believing negative things go away and positive things come, by magical means.
      it doesn't, its extremely complex, often unconcious, but it's our brain working, on interpteting people, changing itself and evolving and on controlling our actions that actually make stuff happen in the world.
      we need to do stuff, it acts through us, after all. we need to talk, discuss and act.
      i believe at least some religions are an honest attempt of acting in sharing these ideas, but it's primitive and flawed, and most importantly, Is arrogant.
      to be exact: by believing with blind faith without providing the experience to everyone, believing their interpretation is 100% perfect and absolute and that everyone else is wrong.
      Also, I've experienced it at least thrice, during a suicidal crisis in which I got really close to doing it, through hypomania(which startled me into "psychotic" mania)
      twice, and countless times through my almost weekly religious/ritualistic use of Ayahuasca.
      so I hope i get it, but It does seem to get clearer with each subsequent instance of it, so I have no doubt that my own interpretation is still primitive

  • rétablir la vérité

    Hello everyone, I have been experimenting for many years with a lot of emotional regulation techniques (emdr, pnl, brainspotting ect) and unfortunately I notice that transcendental meditation ages the face and makes us less beautiful or attractive in the face, It's a shame because this technique brings me many benefits such as: willpower, recovery, creativity ... has anyone ever noticed this? thank you very much peace

    There's no "brain creating reality". Reality= Self.

    • Shakhter Siren'
      Shakhter Siren' 2 days ago

      no, that's your inner universe.
      even if the external universe doesn't exist, we must act as if it were.
      believing you're the only thing real isn't good for the ego and will drive you crazy.
      remember to also ground yourself to actually function in society, because we, whilst limited to our brains/human subjective experience, need to have people around us, to be connected to other expressions of counciousness, to hear contradictory ideas and specially cognitively dissonant ones. we are slaves to our brain, and it lies quite a lot.
      if you didn't learn that the brain lies with TM, id suggest you try psychedelics, of which I suggest Ayahuasca. or actually studying classical philosophy and modern neurology, specially regarding the brain's filter, and how it simulates A reality and projects it through a hallucination so we can experience subjective experiences such as being localized in a 3d space, feeling gravity through a sense of balance, temperature, touch, tastes, smells, sounds, and most importantly, see.
      never trust your own brain without a healthy dose of skepticism. the ego takes over and lies to you, he wants you to believe in all this, because we need to.
      nirvana is great, but I you dedicate your life to it, you forget to live.
      I do think that's relevant to your case as well, because living is, after all, the meaning of life.
      limited human brains gives us the blessing of the unknown, of a subjective experience, of feelings and colors, notes, the sharpness of a benign pain that alerts us of a intestinal state of imbalance of microorganisms which then creates totally unconciously the craving for a certain type of food.
      none of the blessings of life would be possible with an objective perspective of reality itself, being god is, I imagine, quite boring.
      we need to accept our human nature and enjoy it while we can, also be in touch with nirvana, but remember to live bc after we die we get what comes after Nirvana: a "Foo Fighters" of enlightenment of you will, as death reunites us with the rest of the true universe and let's us merge back into the cosmic counciousness.
      besides completely obliterating the ego, forever.
      along with everything about it, memories and all, or at least it's correlation to the sense of self.
      One day, there really won't be anything else besides you, so don't waste your life thinking that, let the world of illusions entertain you! the world is magic, why wouldn't we let ourselves be fascinated by it?
      living life as if it was a dream isn't the right attitude, even if it is a correct statement after all.

    I can assure Mr Lynch that people on welfare (Universal Credit) in the UK, would find it impossible to "find" the £295 "concessionary" rate to learn T.M.
    After their bills/rent/utilities are paid, the overwhelming majority of these people are lucky if they have £10 a week left for food.
    When I learned TM, it was £25 for a student rate.
    Even given allowances for the passage of time, what they're charging now is beyond extortionate.
    Still, no worries so long as the rich and famous can afford it eh?

    2500 dollars!!!! Geez, when I learned in 1972 it was 30 dollars -- recently up from 25. And it is, after all, mostly a ripoff: the mantras are NOT specially chosen, there are simple rules for which mantra you're given -- but, more importantly, they're just the name of Hindu gods...which is just bullshit. Otherwise it's a decent method of meditating (just gently coming back to the mantra, and otherwise letting yourself be "open" to deeper states of consciousness) -- but you can get methods like that from books, instead of letting yourself be ripped off by a fraudulent organization.

    • Georgie2500

      Anyone who charges anything for meditation is a scam artist, esp. 2,500. Meditation can easily be self taught, you need the disciple though, which I guess the people paying thousands of dollars don't have and just want a quick "mind fix".

      @Klaus Geltl Not sure what you're getting at, but I stand by my comment -- TM is nothing special, and is nothing better than meditation techniques one might learn for free. I say that as someone who practiced TM for many years, and has since moved on to more serious study of meditation.

      'Methods like that' is a vague description of something which doesn't exist, and TM you can't learn from a book.

    It’s a travesty that it is $2500 to learnTM. It should be free. It’s great that the foundation is working ti teach at risk people.

    When I did TM training , I was a teenager and it cost my dad $150.00 . So get swami off the mountain top where he is meditating and tell him it cost too much in many ways for people to learn TM.

    The more you pay, the more it's worth. Really ? I don't buy it. I think the cost of the TM meditation course is ludicrous, quite frankly, and I don't believe the money goes towards helping world peace either. I think it goes towards making life very comfortable for the foundation.

      i think that statement kind of points out the true gate to enter creative action - your own desire. your will to do an action that authenticates truth. ultimately it is strictly that which can never ever be expressed in monetary currency nor barter. he almost spoke in a koan there to answer that

    Don't be discouraged, the foundation offers financial aid for those unable to afford. My income bracket will only cost me $45 per month for 4 months. Ive carelessly spent much more than that on things which are material and shallow in nature. As soon as I set aside the money I am going to find a TM teacher.

    So many humble gurus who offer people self enquiry techniques to find there truthful inner being. You people are a disgrace to hold money over love and giving to raise the vibration on this planet to peace and love.
    People do not need you people who want money for nothing.
    We are all ONE and giving love is not exchanging money for finding self.
