David Lynch on ‘The Unified Field’

“If you have a golf-balled sized consciousness, then when you read a book, you’ll have a golf-ball sized understanding; when you look out, a golf-ball sized awareness; and when you wake up in the morning, a golf-ball sized wakefulness. But if you could expand that consciousness, then you read the book, more understanding; you look out, more awareness; and when you wake up, more wakefulness. It’s consciousness. And there’s an ocean of pure, vibrant consciousness inside each of us. It’s right at the source and base of mind, right at the source of thought, and it’s also at the source of all matter. And Maharishi Mahesh Yogi teaches a technique called Transcendental Meditation that’s a simple, easy, effortless technique, yet supremely profound that allows any human being to dive within, experiencing subtler levels of mind and intellect, to transcend and experience this ocean of pure consciousness, which is called by modern physics ‘The Unified Field’. And modern science now says that all of matter – everything that is a thing – emerges from this field. This field has qualities, like bliss, intelligence, creativity, universal love, energy, peace. And it’s not the intellectual understanding of this field, but the experiencing of it, that does everything. You dive in – experiencing this field of pure consciousness – and you enliven it; you unfold it. It grows. And the final outcome of this growth of consciousness is called enlightenment. And enlightenment is the full potential of all of us as human beings.”
