After the point in the heart has been opened in a person, and he does not leave it even if it is black and there is no light in it, no filling, one realizes that it speaks about something higher than this world. One believes that it is better to be in this state of uncertainty and depression than in the animalistic state of our world.
And he begins to pay attention to his spiritual development. The black point gradually develops all kinds of movements in him in one direction or another. That is, a person rushes toward spirituality, then somehow falls behind, trying to approach this either from a scientific, mystical, or emotional point of view.
This is a process of internal accumulation of information, sensations, which is still unclear to us. After all, the way the sperm enters the uterus and begins to develop in it is also completely hidden from us and only after a while it makes itself felt. The same happens to us.
The only problem is that a person’s spiritual development can take many years. Ultimately, insight, awareness, and sensation is also not his spiritual birth but only a certain stage when he feels being in the upper world but still does not understand what is happening to him.
