These days people just don’t think. Really think, because the mind and the brain is so over-saturated with stimuli. Meditation aids in reducing the internal stress that is created by our emotions, worries, fears etc..

Excerpt from: The Artists Way by Julia Cameron

“Let’s take a look at what we stand to gain by meditating. There are many ways of thinking about meditation. Scientists speak of it in terms of brain hemispheres and shunting techniques. We move from logic brain to artist brain and from fast to slow, shallow to deep. Management consultants, in pursuit of corporate physical health, have learned to think of meditation primarily as a stress-management technique. Spiritual seekers choose to view the process as a gateway to God. Artists and creative mavens approve of it as a conduit for higher creative insights.

All of these notions are true-as far as they go. They do not go far enough. Yes, we will alter our brain hemisphere, lower our stress, discover an inner contact with a creative source, and have many creative insights. Meditation is an experience of wholeness, rightness and power.”

We meditate to discover our own identity, our right place in the scheme of the universe. Through meditation, we acquire and eventually acknowledge our connection to an inner power source that has the ability to transform our outer world. In other words, mediation gives us not only the light of insight but also the power for expansive change.
