Bottom line …

… Minimal Metaphysics for Meditation. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

My conclusion is that no one is likely to take up and stick with serious meditation, meditation as part of a spiritual quest, unless he is the recipient of a certain grace, a certain free granting ab extra.  (Here I go beyond Pali Buddhism which leaves no place for grace, and beyond Evola as well.)  He must be granted a glimpse of the inner depth of the self. But not only this.  He must also be granted a willingness to honor and not dismiss this fleeting intimation, but instead center his life around the quest for that which it reveals.
