How far can meditation alone get one with spiritual development and learning more by yourself?
Background/Blogpost:
All the information about chakras, meridians, dantians etc. is OK to grasp, but there are always either contradictions with the information or mystified explanations.
For example, a lot of resources talk about the 7 chakras and that they are red, orange, yellow, green, etc. the color of the rainbow basically. Then there's the book Kundalini - An untold story where a himalayan mystic attributes completely different colors to them and at the same time mocks people who claim to see the chakras. One book talks about absorbing ambient energy, the other one completely condems it.
In reality, it seems like a very confusing web of information where everyone preaches their subjective view of this, which is kind of insane. I tried to tie it up together, but was left with madness so I just came to the conlusion that there isn't a perfect divine answer that is composed of everything. I think I can clearly see a few instances where certain practices spread from country to country and changed a bit, but this doesn't help. It's sad because there isn't anything you can do that will just work, like a computer that simply starts up when you press a button. Maybe that's what this whole thing just is, slow and confusing, but I don't want to accept that. There needs to be a metaphorical switch somewhere that simply works. Work for what? Everything.

The only thing that can work for everything is your own personality or what you have inside yourself. That is the only part that will always be relevant to you.

You're looking for a way to automate life. If you do this and put yourself under the influence of such a system, you become an automaton yourself. There is a way to do this, but do you want this? If done wrong you become the slave of contraptions you cannot change, and they may lock you up and restrain you seemingly indefinitely.
Reality is only shared in the sense of genes and memes. Small formulas which can be used by a certain group of beings. Not everyone will look the same. Maybe someone see it as a goal to find such a thing, to create some kind of unity, but why?
I think the answer is only inside yourself and not in finding such common ground, aside from the part which is true to yourself. Don't seek communion with others for itself. Let the shared ground appear before you where you are, with no effort.

I think I understand what you mean with personality, but what do you mean with "what you have inside yourself"? And how can this be applied? "The personality" is important for how you interact with the world. I for example have the tendency to procrastiante what doesn't interest me, but eventually I will do it if the pressure is too much. This is a part of my personality that has it's pros and cons. In my meditative practice I try to unravel as much of this as possible to first and foremost accept every aspect of myself for various reasons. Eventually when this is done and continues forever, I will have a dynamic understanding of myself.

But this doesn't really stop me from getting hit by a car or stabbed by another person (at least I think so).
Of course, there's the possibility that causality is much more complex than I can imagine and that these scenarios never happen when one reaches some sort of partial enlightenment, but I cannot say for sure and I have only this life that I am aware of, I don't like taking these chances.
I wonder what else can I do to improve my access to enlightenment that will help me first to overcome this world? I'm talking about outlandish things that would brand me insane if I openly pursued this and talked about it with my neighbor.
>I think the answer is only inside yourself and not in finding such common ground, aside from the part which is true to yourself. Don't seek communion with others for itself. Let the shared ground appear before you where you are, with no effort.
Automation and unity to some degree seem useful to me, but I wouldn't completely support the idea of automating and uniting everything because I kind of like living as an individual being and
struggling is probably worth it at the end of the day. If the answer really is inside someone, then how does one hear it?

Maybe this is based on a notion taken for granted but not elaborated. If you were to build the perfect system, be it philosophy, morality or technology, unless you understand every part of it by heart, it is external to you. This is what

refers to. Only when you have internalized all your creations are you free. Free to use them, control them or recreate them from scratch anytime. By that time you have overcome materialism. You are carrying the external world inside yourself and have no attachment to it. This is the path to immortality; technology and science has reached the level of the occult and become one of your skills. When the external world is saturated in your mind, you can only move up above it. This is a method and it's highly personal so maybe it doesn't work for you, but think of it as a reference if so.
