Let me look into your heart and see what troubles you. It is natural to fear the loss of the personal self and to resist the gradual encroaching Light into deeper and deeper areas of your heart and mind. You must learn to persist in the face of adversity. A failure to persist will mean that valuable ground is lost and you will find that you slide backwards to a comfortable level of growth.
Guard against complacency, it is the hidden enemy, the shadow of the self. To persevere, alone if needs be, against all odds; to persevere, to persevere. persevere to love and heal the self. The seeds of our destruction are never far from our hands. Seize the moment.
