Answer: The fact is that the awakening of the point in the heart is felt in a person as aiming toward the question of the meaning of life. Either it is gradually awakened by suffering or a person finds the environment and, by joining a group, begins to advance faster.
A person develops a suitable soil around one’s spiritual embryo and then one advances faster, reveals the questions of his development, and finds answers to those questions.
This is actually the development of a constantly renewed Reshimo.
