What is the path of nature in light of that, how should a spiritual aspirant think of their spiritual path?
The path of nature is a path which does not necessarily involve a student to preceptor relationship. The seeker simply lives a natural life time and time again while learning lessons over many incarnations. This path comes with many struggles and questions which are not answered for many life times.
The spiritual aspirant should think of their spiritual path in a more serious fashion. The student to preceptor relationship is very vital as it allows us more opportunity to advance. Having this access gives the aspirant a direct form of communication with an enlightened teacher, as opposed to the path of nature. The spiritual aspirant should concentrate on the Shedy teachings such as rituals on a daily basis. This along with Smai Taui, meditation, diet, and chants will aid greatly to his or her nehast. The seeker upon the path of nature does not have these teachings.
