There is a point of the spiritual state in which there is a very flowing sense of the self. The mind is a creature of habit so there is still a daily routine but it is more for external actions to carry on but internally habits are all loose concepts, they exist but are not anchors.
It signals a readiness to transition from one phase to another, like a passage way, everything would be very pleasing and then something shifts as if there is nothing more in this phase but before moving to the next once again there is this brief period of reassessment of self. Whatever is preventing you from growing further is faced head on, either you get past it or you remain in the same phase to again face it later on when ready.
It can be hard because growth is moving out of what is known as your “comfort zone”. The self struggles to keep to the anchor it has reached mainly out of not wanting to lose that sense of security it creates even though growth is for the best of the individual. Fear cripples the mind, soul and the heart. If you are seeking the One, the ultimate goal to keep in mind, then there is nothing to fear on your journey so grow through the phases and let yourself pass along.
“And when he attained his full strength and was [mentally] mature, We bestowed upon him judgment [wisdom] and knowledge. And thus do We reward the doers of good.” (28:14)
