Top 5 Reasons People Aren’t Meditating

Why don’t more people meditate?


After all, meditation is so readily accessible in the U.S. now and has emerged in a variety of forms. The number of meditation offerings has increased exponentially… apps that can be downloaded, local meditation classes that you can attend, teachers who stand ready and willing to help you meditate.Meditation can change your life, they tell you. It can facilitate emotional healing and help resolve your health issues. It will teach you how to be mindful.

Yet, a lot of people (most people) don’t meditate. Why not? And why do some of those who do (or at least have) stop meditating?

Intuitive Intelligence – Better than Artificial Intelligence

The news cycles these days are brimming with how Artificial Intelligence is taking the world by storm. There are tall predictions and fat hopes for how AI will change our lives forever, primarily because of their ability to use vast amounts of data, analyze information at very high speeds and make decisions that humans make today. In other words, replace the form of human intelligence that human beings have with intelligence that is supposedly more powerful. And likely much better because it makes fewer or no errors, with no bias and of course no emotions involved.


A couple of days ago, there was an article about Google used AI to create the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.


A while ago, I had written a fairly long account of how Robots will force us to meditate more. The same verdict holds here too. AI is pushing human beings to find something superior and better than the kind of intelligence that AI is going to replace very soon or has already. Case in point above, who needs bakers who struggle around experimenting how to bake great chocolate chip cookies? AI can take over that and do it much better.


But there is another form of intelligence that very few people know about, it’s better either artificial intelligence or the human intelligence that’s acquired through learning, training, and experience. This is the intelligence we tap into through our power of intuition within us.

Everyone is a spiritual Work-in-progress

Whether you chose Sahaja meditation for stress relief or to gain knowledge or for some other even deeper reason, it’s clear that the trigger of seeking inside you was the reason you decided to explore it. Spiritual seeking is built in within us – our subtle energy system already has this seed or spark within us. This causes us to reflect and seek out higher purpose and self-improvement in our lifetime at specific times. Some of it is forced upon us by circumstances while the rest is up to us and maybe more casual, like developing an interest in something that ultimately leads us to a higher pursuit.


So, how can you understand where you are on this journey in your life? We thought we’d put up some key stages in this journey that we have seen people spend time. A lot of it comes from the experience of Sahaja practitioners on how their journey of spirituality panned out.

Dealing with colds and the flu season

Today I’ll start off a little bit about meditation and how it can help with colds and allergies but then move on to share my learnings and experiences on effective ways to deal with winter colds and the flu season. While there are so many different solutions and remedies, I’ve listed some of the most potent remedies which have worked very well for me.


And it’s really important to do that because, lots of people try so many remedies without really understanding how powerful or potent each one is, relative to the others.

Getting out of your own way into meditation

This seemingly simple and often ignored act can actually be very profound and even a breakthrough in your quest for learning how to meditate. But what does it really mean?


Nearly all other forms of meditation are geared towards focusing on getting you to perform some cognitive task, mindfulness is the most significant of them. Others ask you to focus or concentrate on something. Still others get you to reduce or eliminate your thoughts gradually using some technique.


Sahaja meditation is almost entirely the opposite of all these. You sit down for meditate and allow that inner energy inside to do its work. Yes, in fact, after you’ve prepared yourself for meditation with a basic starting step, there’s very little you should try to do.


In fact, you should actually get out of your own way.
