Meditation has become more important then ever.
The speed with which we live our life, in our computer generated times is too much for our systems, we haven't really adapted to all those new technologies we are using. The continual stimulation, the impact of even an ordinary day-to-day life in today's frantic world gradually escalates our optimum arousal level and results in constant stress just by living. One of the effects of meditation is to lower the arousal level.
