I have a close friend who has been incarcerated for over 3 years now and still has several years left on his sentence. He was convicted of a non-violent, drug-related crime, and during his incarceration I have shared many transcribed lectures and information on gnosis which has helped him tremendously with the process of awakening his consciousness. He is deeply spiritual and has just recently begun a daily meditation practice. He wrote me the other night about an experience he had related to meditation, and I thought I would post it here in hopes of getting some insight that I could share with him.

Here is his message:

"I had something weird happen last night and I though you might know what to do.. i was feeling a lil bit of stress just due to the way things have been going with my appeal and stuff so i went to meditation.. when i left i felt calm but like a dangerous calm.. like rage or anger was on the cuffs.. i don't know if it was because maybe i brought up emotions that i had suppressed and not been able to clear them or what but i just felt angry but scarily calm.. i am good today .. actually really great and motivated/inspired but if that happens again should i go back into meditation immediately and try to clear that out? How would i even do that? has that ever happened to you? i was really just about to explode and i haven't felt that way in years.. i usually am really good about knowing that everything is part of the journey.. harnessing the will.. and knowing that everything has a reason, lesson and blessing hidden within.. but last night all that flew out the window and i felt defeated and really defensive like a primal instinct.."

Thank you in advance for any insight! Peace!

Comprehension comes in degrees and is elastic. Sometimes we see things about ourselves in one way today, but an entirely different manner tomorrow.

When comprehension lacks profundity, many egotistical elements process themselves unnoticed beneath the screen of our consciousness.

The solution is to continue developing self-knowledge through meditation, self-observation, self-observation, and to make one's esoteric practices frequent, so as to go for the large fish that swim in deeper waters, not the shallow pools that dry and rot underneath the sun.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
