Aspirants must always have the inward look

10/30/2011 Comments Off on Aspirants must always have the inward look

Aspirants must always have the inward look; if they allow the mind to wander outward, they cannot identify their own faults. It is hard to get rid of pride and self-love or ego (Ahamkara). Each has been allowing their mind to flow in the direction it likes for several ages. Pride prevents the inward look and confuses the examination of the mind. If one wants to achieve success, one must bow down to those who point out one’s faults. That is the way to progress fast in the path of meditation. And they must endeavour not to entertain the faults any longer. With regard to anger, one has to be more vigilant even about the most minor matters that might provoke them, because if they are careless, they cannot progress in the least. Such people must cultivate a humble, loving spirit. Then the bad traits will disappear. – Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
