One of the most concerning example would be the triggering of psychosis in people suffering from certain kinds of mental illness.

Unless I missed something somewhere, I can't think of a single example throughout the entire L/L transcript library where any kind of caveat or cautionary word was given regarding meditation.  Surely, beings millions of years more advanced than us would be aware of a potential downside to meditation.  

And yet, it has even become a running joke in LoO community that "meditate, meditate, and meditate some more" seems to be the answer to all of our troubles.

What gives?

Spiritual sickness...the Kundalini Effect
