Meditation helps Corporates develop a social conscience

2020 has been a huge wake-up call for our society globally. Amongst so many problems and issues that have risen to global attention, some of the most important ones are health risks due to the pandemic, racial inequality and climate change. It’s sufficient to say that the need and the rise of social consciousness has gone through the roof this year. The underlying common theme that has been quietly establishing itself in our societies is to create a better, safer world for ourselves and future generations by trying to address these problems with seriousness.

Solutions to problems require resources – effort, organizing and most importantly, money. The private sector’s contribution to the economy in developed countries averages to more than 85% as a percentage of each country’s gross domestic product or GDP. For developing countries, it is 70% or higher.

Clearly, the households and individuals, corporations, small businesses, charities and many others that belong to the private sector have an outsized impact with respect to their ability to influence and solve social issues. 

What if the above people became significantly motivated and focused on the issues affecting our society? In other words, what if their social consciousness was increased dramatically? It would definitely cause our society to make big moves forward.

But how can this awareness be instilled in them? Turns out that meditation and especially the ones like Sahaja meditation can play a big role.

Meditation – far beyond relaxation

While spirituality is Sahaja meditation’s forte and sweet spot, and we often talk about it a lot, Sahaja meditation’s benefits go far beyond mere stress relief or relaxation. Also, for many, meditation might be some vague technique to find peace and calm. Not for those who practice Sahaja. Today, we’d like to be very specific about what Sahaja meditation can do beyond mere relaxation.

The most important success factor behind meditation

Our attention is the vehicle of our consciousness. It represents and manifests the states of our consciousness. These states include the states of deep sleep, waking, regular existence, and the higher state of consciousness that we reach during Sahaja meditation. In that higher state, we perceive the spiritual realm of the universe by connecting our spiritual being to the all-pervading energy of the universe. 

Most other forms of meditation result in benefits, with the attention being in the lower and regular state of consciousness. Sahaja distinguishes itself by lifting our attention to the higher spiritual realm, also referred to as the Collective UnConscious by renowned psychologists like Carl Jung.

This makes monitoring and managing our attention the most important aspect of our meditation practice. And this is not just during each meditation session but the entire time that we’re awake. Focusing on our attention and controlling it is vital for a meditator; even though in Sahaja, a large part is done spontaneously by the power of the rising Kundalini energy.

Establishing a failure-proof meditation schedule

Our last article described how Sahaja meditation and its wide-ranging benefits go far beyond those provided by mere relaxation meditation. Sahaja is a holistic way of enriching your life in every dimension. But it all comes with hard work and persistence until you can achieve a “failure-proof” meditation routine in your life. Having a failure-proof routine means that you’re set for life and don’t have to worry about having the discipline to get to your meditation schedule and sessions ever.

Here’s how to do this.

But for those of us who are struggling with many problems in life, including financial, health, or family-related brought about by the pandemic of the century, meditation can be a massive help in getting through this period.

We examine some specific meditation-related methods for overcoming the stress and loneliness that forced social distancing can bring in our lives.
