Step 1 - Self Effort

This step is designed to let you proceed at a pace that feels natural and comfortable. But it will require effort on your part. Meditation and deeper spiritual states must be experienced, not merely read about.

How much effort is involved? This you must decide for yourself. But any effort you make will pay dividends very quickly.
