So long as he must force himself to come to the practice or, having come to it already, to continue it, so long must he regard himself as a beginner whose faulty tendencies need to be firmly disciplined. Only when he comes freely and gladly, and only when he continues willingly and easily, so that a day without doing his exercises seems like a day with something lost or missing, can he regard himself as a proficient who has at last mastered meditation.
