Most of us have ignored or currently ignore it at present due to the lack of understanding. It is a matter of education. I would safely say that meditation must be taught in school, at least as an optional discipline.
Also, western societies moved us away from spiritual practices, and meditation is one of them. We tend to be rooted in physicality and remove any calls from the source. And I have to say that we find reasons not to meditate. Once, I have invited a gentleman for meditation, and he said: “I am too busy, maybe when my son goes to college.” I couldn’t help my smile, but that was a typical response of all of us. We have always found an excuse, which is worst than a lie because excuses can go forever without the immediate sense of guilt.
