- Attitudes that impede or advance bhakti
- Better applying spiritual principles in daily life
What’s most important in your life is not what you say is important. What you do defines what’s most important to you. Look at your life, look at what you do, and you’ll know where you priorities lie.
What’s the problem?
Don’t blame circumstances for your lack of good sadhana. Recognize that you are responsible for your spiritual life and you are potentially the greatest obstacle to your own advancement.
When your values and you lifestyle are out of alignment, you will feel guilt or shame. Do not repress these feelings. They are telling you something is wrong and you need to change.
Being good in a specific area of our lives is not our challenge. We can easily be a success in one part of our lives and failures in another. Our challenge is balance, to succeed in all areas of our lives.
