The practice of non-violence is usually understood as doing no harm physically. But from a spiritual perspective, non-violence includes refraining from both physical and energetic harm. In Buddhism and Hinduism, the practice is called ahimsa, which Mahatma Gandhi defined as non-violence in thought, word, and deed.
On the advanced spiritual path, intuition is your powerful inner guide. Intuition tells you what next step to take even (and especially) if you can’t see the path in front of you. It is very common not to have a clear view of the way forward. On the advanced path, it’s your intention to wake up that is clear, not necessarily the path itself.

Anyone can become enlightened. The disposition on the advanced path is: If anyone can wake up, why not me? This comes from a place of deep humility that we are all God and creates an opening to Light that might have been blocked by thoughts filled with doubt, low self-esteem or spiritual fatigue.
The advanced path begins when you want spiritual liberation more than anything else and you finally stop the endless cycle of techniques, strategies and practice that keep you from waking up. There are no rules on the advanced path and there is no single formula for success. Instead, the advanced path is a constant orientation toward liberation, a quality of openness and a letting go of all the activity that has prevented you from waking up.
