Quote from a Prominent Neurologist on Meditation

23 Apr 2009

Dr Enescu is a prominent neurologist in New Jersey. He was interviewed in the book, ‘Choices and Illusions’ by Eldon Taylor. (Published 2007)

When asked, “Why do you believe meditation to be so important?” he answered,

“We cannot progress with spirituality without learning about meditation. Meditation is so much more important than just relaxing, and it is different from praying. I was brought up as a Greek Orthodox Christian, and they believe in praying a lot. However, I see praying as “speaking to God,” whereas meditation is “listening to God.” Most people simply do not want to spend time working in something that seems so ambiguous, but the rewards are there for those who do.”
