When any person first steps upon the spiritual path, it needs to be fully accepted; that everything begins with taking 100% responsibility for the whole pattern of your life. In practice this will mean being responsible for your emotions or how you feel as well. From this aspect onwards all the possibilities in life will arise.
As the evolution of spiritual consciousness is resisted by the personality or ego; the net result is that all average humanity who are ruled by their ego’s are entrapped within a prison. Insight meditation or serious meditation is a direct comparison to many of the superficial forms of meditation that are available today.
