An Ocean of Solutions: The David Lynch Interview

CG: Do you feel like meditation has impacted your own creative work?

DL: That’s a difficult question to answer because I was, as everyone is, creative to a certain degree, one way or another – I was working and making things – before I began meditation. And I’ve been meditating for almost forty-one years now, so it’s hard to say what I’d be like without it…

Another thing that happens is that ideas flow more freely. They say that negative things like stress, anxiety, tension, sorrow, and depression “squeeze the tube” so ideas don’t flow through it. But if you get rid of that negativity, which goes away naturally when you transcend every day, these ideas are more freely flowing, and you get happy in the doing. You get fresh and inspiring ideas, and a bigger picture starts to emerge of the world and life. It’s very good for the artist, businessman, fisherman, and any kind of person really.

Another thing that flourishes is intuition, and I always say that intuition is the number one tool for an artist. Intuition is knowingness, and this field of unbounded knowing, of knowingness, is within every human being. You start tapping into that and it becomes an ocean of solutions. When something isn’t quite right, you somehow know a way to make it right, and this is a beautiful, beautiful thing that grows the more that you infuse that being, that unified field, that ocean of consciousness.

So it serves the work, and it serves the life: happy in the doing.
