The Meditating Eye Color Infusion Expandable Necklace by David Lynch. A part of the jewelry collection the ‘Meditating Eye.’
Director David Lynch is so multi-talented it can often be challenging to keep up with his prolific work in film, TV, music, art and beyond. In October Lynch released the ‘Meditating Eye,’ a line of jewelry inspired by the practice of Transcendental Meditation (known as TM). Lynch has been a practitioner of TM for more than four decades. In 2005 he formed the David Lynch Foundation which promotes the use of TM to help people cope with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and stress-related trauma, and in 2007 he authored a book on the subject Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity. Here’s an excerpt from the book in which Lynch speaks to the benefits of TM and its link to feeding artistic creativity he called “Catching Ideas”:
“Ideas are like fish.
If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.
Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.
I look for a certain kind of fish that is important to me, one that can translate to cinema. But there are all kinds of fish swimming down there. There are fish for business, fish for sports. There are fish for everything.
Everything, anything that is a thing, comes up from the deepest level. Modern physics calls that level the Unified Field. The more your consciousness-your awareness-is expanded, the deeper you go toward this source, and the bigger the fish you can catch.”
Right now and through the end of December 2018 Lynch’s online retailer pals at ALEX AND ANI are dontaing 20% of the purchase price of each piece from the Meditating Eye collection they sell to the David Lynch Foundation. Images of Lynch’s thought-provoking charitable jewelry (sold in either gold or siver tones) follow.
