I'm observing that it's vastly different for different people. Some only go for hits of bliss, like a Palo Alto meditation teacher who has been on the path for 20 years, and goes to see Kundalini (Nicole Grace), sitting in silent bliss for 10 minutes after she leaves the stage (see other blog for more). The masters tech go for it, give up everything, do everything humanly possible (Osho). Does getting/staying out of the comfort zone correlate with awakening? Do people staying in their zone, regardless of how wide it is, stay stuck?
