I don't plan to step on people to get where I want to go, but on the other hand, my goal is not to serve others as my main modus operandi.
I feel like focsing more on my self.
IMO this is the correct approach to spiritual development.
All that changes as you follow this path is that each time you make a realization, you choose a polarity (either consciously or unconsciously, it doesnt matter either way), and then you choose a purpose.
So the process goes:
1. Make a realization. (find yourself)
2. Choose a polarity. (unconsciously or consciously)
3. Choose a purpose. (a course of action)
4. Repeat Steps 1-3 forever.
If your Step 2 choice is the same each time, you are polarizing. If it isn't, you aren't polarizing. Life is going well either way.
The only way to improve the process is to increase the speed, you can do this by increasing Step 1 through meditation and stuff like that. You can go hike the Appalachian Trail and that is going to make Step 1 come at you more quickly each cycle.
