In recent years meditation has gained popularity in the West. The Beetles gave Eastern meditation popular appeal, and it spread from there. It even started to penetrate the church, and not necessarily in keeping with our traditions (for instance in Psalm 1:2 "But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night". Meditation a connection with content.)

In How the West Won, Rodney Stark has this to say:
...most religions outside the Judeo-Christian tradition do not posit a creation at all. The universe is said to be eternal, without beginning or purpose; never having been created, it has no Creator. From this view, the universe is a supreme mystery, inconsistent, unpredictable, and (perhaps) arbitrary. For those holding this view, the only paths to wisdom are meditation and inspiration---there being nothing to reason about.
