The following is an excerpt taken from Jose’s most recent journal regarding his thoughts on his spiritual practice and meditation process:
  “Sometimes it appears the spiritual methods may be intense, excessive, zealous — but if they were not so, how could the habitual tendencies of the lower self be overcome? So you repeat prayers, precepts and mantras and examine yourself daily, you read holy books, wisdom texts and lives of inspired masters; you meditate, practice breath control and do yoga — so that slowly you build a life lived closer and closer to the spirit level-and farther from the animal level — that drives most of humanity in circles of self-reinforcing opinions and generally destructive habits and modes of life — through this process, one whose goals is to be rid of ego and become aware of being lived by another force, another element larger and more universal that the mere self with a given name and surname.”
