Use of brainwave entrainment in mediation is raising some concern among some of the spiritually enlightened practitioners. In the final article of this section, I will address the issue of whether brainwave technology in meditation is ethical and fair.
One argument is that those using this technology cheat their way through meditation by taking a short cut route and avoiding all the hard work. Although I didn’t use brainwave entrainment technology on my journey to enlightenment, I cannot agree with this argument, after having researched and tested it myself.
Even though this technology has the capacity to get you almost instantly into achieving a meditative state, in the end, it’s you who have to do the work. There are NO shortcuts to becoming more loving, more creative, more mindful, more passionate and compassionate and to positively transforming aspects of your life and contributing to our world, as this is not something that gets done on autopilot.
The truth is: Brainwave entrainment technology improves your strength in the spiritual practice by eliminating incidences of external disturbances that would otherwise cause problems. We can conclude that an individual using this technology is like a meditator using modern tools.
With its help, those who have a difficult time concentrating find that they can sit longer without getting restless, and their chattering mind slides more readily into a quiet state. They look forward to their practice and feel a depth to their inner world they did not feel before.
The pull of the tracks can take them to states that might take years to experience otherwise and, over time, they find their stress threshold is higher and that they are able to bring up, confront and release limiting emotions more gracefully.
