Doss, I agree with K with the exception of developing ethics and
compassion at a early point.  If we do our ethics at stage one,
our compassion at stage two, then from there on out we are
on our own.  The only real authority in spiritual matters is our
own inner divinity, and the first two stages of the path should be
well along prior to its introduction.  However, arousal of one's inner
divinity without some degree of initiation always leads to inflation
of ego, and the whole point of the spiritual path is the denigration
of ego.  Thus, while we probably should take our own path at
our own speed, the warnings, hazards, and pitfalls given to us
by those who have gone before are ignored at our own peril.
