!Question: What is the path of nature and in light of that, how should a spiritual aspirant think about their spiritual path? The path of nature is the union of the individual human consciousness with the universal consciousness that can occur without a special instruction from religious or a spiritual preceptor, which is known as the school of hard knocks, involving repeated incarnations, pain and suffering to teach you. So a spiritual aspirant should think that they themselves should take the initiative to advance spiritually by putting forth the effort in order to excel at spiritual development. They must apply the correct technique and practice daily and find a preceptor who has received the teachings from an enlighten teacher to lead them to the correct understanding of the teachings, then make conscious effort every day to unite oneself with the higher self. Thinking that the practice of yoga will lead them to self-corrections from worldly life and confusion as in raising from the muddy waters like unto the Lotus plant or Nefertem into enlightenment.
