David Lynch explains the connection between consciousness and creativity.
Ultimately, all ideas arise from the deepest level of the mind—pure consciousness, the unbounded field of creativity inside each of us.
Through the Transcendental Meditation® technique, you’ll learn to dive within yourself, experience subtler levels of mind and feeling, and awaken to pure consciousness, the universal Self.
This experience of going beyond the surface levels of thinking gives you greater access to your inner reservoir of creativity. Creativity flows more easily, your intuition gets refined, stress and negativity dissipate, and your enjoyment of life grows.
“Art really has its source in the transcendent, the unmanifest field of pure consciousness, which is the non-changing, immortal field of all possibilities…When the awareness of the artist is in tune with this center of infinite creativity, his piece of art breathes fullness of life, nourishes the creator, the artist, and inspires his admirers with waves of bliss.”
-Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1981
"It is the artist’s mission to penetrate as far as may be toward that sacred truth where primal law feeds growth. Which artist would not wish to dwell at the central organ of all motion in space-time . . . from which all functions derive their life? It is the womb of nature. In the primal ground of creation, where the secret key to all things lies hidden. Our beating heart drives us downward to this primal ground."
"The life of consciousness is boundless . . . therefore we must harken closely to our inner voice . . . the core within . . . the magical principle of living. All that is required of us is to release control. Some part of ourselves will bring us into the unison. . . . One’s soul becomes a reverberation of the universe."
