Great talk, I hear you mate, I feel the same way. I have been on a kind of slow-burn spiritual path for almost a decade, and I made it my way of life. It is eventually natural and effortless, but also hard to get into especially when its so opposite to modern culture and distraction, and there is discomfort to deal with. Even the "beginner level" stuff you mention is nothing to do with building a practice or having a path, its mainly to do with taking the edge off a painful rat-racer existence, just so people can continue their same rat-racer existence. Just another thing to consume or numb the self with.
