Why Meditation Must Be Easy to be Effective

This actually is a very simple question with a very simple answer.
First, let’s agree on what meditation — regardless of which technique we’re talking about — has as its objective.
Every meditation technique has this as its objective, although exactly how the teacher may articulate this may vary a little:
To turn on the Opposite of the “Fight or Flight” switch (i.e., the parasympathetic nervous system is the medical term) so we can reduce stress and anxiety, and expand our consciousness (i.e., our degree of wakefulness and self-awareness).
Second, let’s agree that the “Fight of Flight” Response is an AUTOMATIC response in every human being worldwide. So to turn on the Opposite switch must be equally automatic.
This is why any effective meditation technique MUST be as automatic as possible — as EASY and EFFORTLESS as possible. You cannot turn on an “automatic” switch by trying to. Or by trying to control it.
It has to be ALLOWED to turn itself on.
That is the key element to an effective meditation technique. The more automatic, the faster it turns on the Opposite of the Fight or Flight switch. And therefore, the faster the benefits.
So, easy is a MUST.
Effortless is necessary for maximum benefits from meditation.
You simply cannot turn on on automatic switch by trying or focusing. It will not work, or it will work very, very slowly.
It must be easy and effortless. That’s why my “Turning Within” Meditation is so effective and the benefits come so fast.
As I said, it’s simple.
