Dear Instructors, perhaps you can help me out - I am really interested in how you personally got through the first stages/years of being a student of gnosis, how you managed to develop the stamina to work on yourself everyday and to get to the point where you can say that you are really doing everything in your power to serve your being.
I know that the path is different for everyone but it would really help to hear a personal story of an instructor. Personally, i have plunged into a viscous cycle of procrastination and laziness, so hearing an example of how you can actually grow beyond these beginner problems would be a great help. Have you ever experienced situations/ longer periods where you gave in to laziness?
I'd also be really interested in what your day to day practice actually looked like in your first year/ second year/ third year etc. as a student, what type of insight you got into your own psyche, and how that insight came about (visions, dreams, astral experiences?) Did you achieve in your first couple of years as a student to wake up consistently in the astral plane?
One more thing: How long did it take you to be in consistent communication with your being? And what did/does that communication look like?
As I said, I realize that everyone is different, but hearing a personal story would be a great inspiration for me and perhaps for others as well.
