A Light Refreshment Break: David Lynch’s Surreal Promo for Transcendental Meditation

For all you Emptiness/Nondual junkies in Halo-fax: enjoy your direct experience.

And to compliment the surreality of David Lynch is the sardonic genius of Chogyam Trungpa:

MINDFULNESS IS NOT A TRANSCENDENTAL MICROWAVE OVEN

A sudden zap works in your microwave oven. You put your food in, you zap it, and it gets cooked instantly. However, in the realm of mindfulness and meditation, you can’t expect a transcendental microwave oven. No achievement happens all of a sudden. There is a process of growth, a gradual process of developing ourselves. No one is going to save us on the spot. Our progress is up to us.
