Why is meditation so powerful? Meditation is intrinsically powerless, it is not an act like other acts like walking or doing something or playing a musical instrument it has no intrinsic act in the process which implies that it has no power over anything. Now the interesting part is that the process of meditation allows your consciousness to express itself and your consciousness is very powerful, so if the consciousness starts reflecting on its own and goes into a mode of self-reflection, self evaluation, self correction then that entire process becomes very very powerful and that you can call as the process of meditation and hence you can also refer to meditation as a powerful process but technically speaking meditation is a very simple process where you don’t do anything. So there is no power necessarily associated with meditation. You just allow the powerful things to take over and work for you.
