The First Three Steps
The first step is the quantum shift, moving from where you were before to where you are now. You’ve gone from the design or idea not being present, to it being present – it’s shown up. Now you’re seeking a realization of your true self. The second step is application, or in Sanskrit it’s True Inquiry. This is an application of reason, seeking out new knowledge in the terms of personal development and spiritual development. The third step is assimilation or refinement of the mind – where the mind gets more focused. You choose not to dwell on negative thoughts and feelings anymore. You see them for what they are and you want nothing more to do with them.
