7 myths about meditation

While I'm averse to Deepak Chopra's metaphysical interpretations, he nevertheless offers some important information in this post of the type of myths that prevent many from engaging in regular meditation practice. I must give kudos for dispelling them. Just the myth headings follow. See his article for the specifics.

Myth #1: Meditation is difficult.

Myth #2: You have to quiet your mind in order to have a successful meditation practice.

Myth #3: It takes years of dedicated practice to receive any benefits from meditation.

Myth #4: Meditation is escapism.

Myth #5: I don't have enough time to meditate.

Myth #6: Meditation requires spiritual or religious beliefs.

Myth #7: I'm supposed to have transcendent experiences in meditation.
