  « We must master our faults before the end of life, otherwise we carry them with us into the next incarnation. We are the only ones who can cure ourselves of our bad habits, on a physical level. It is only when we are able to dominate external problems that they disappear from our existence. »

 - If even for a second you do not impose your will on your favorite lion and at this moment of weakness he attacks you, you are lost. Our lower nature is a lion-like animal. Both must be constantly and securely leashed for their energies to serve us. So be careful!
[ Elisabeth Haich, "Initiation" ]

 Acknowledging and mastering our inclinations

Let's not hide our negative feelings from ourselves. That would be like sweeping dust under the carpet. On the contrary, let's recognize them.

 « A number of characters exist within us. It is sometimes one, sometimes the other which manifests itself, and some may never manifest themselves in broad daylight. Their expression is censored but they act in depth.

 Circumstances, external stimuli bring one or other of the characters that compose us to the surface. When a protagonist appears, we take ourselves for this character.

 It takes a great deal of awareness to situate oneself in a central axis, which is really us - neither "good" us, nor "bad" us, nor "mystical" us, nor "vulgar" us. »

The selfishness

_ _

  « Human beings are selfish by nature, but to varying degrees. If all of you could become aware of your selfishness, you would take a big step towards improving yourself and your society.
 (...) Man is not always aware of his selfish acts. This revelation often comes when he experiences suffering.
 He can too
(without waiting for this pain) overcome this imperfection by putting himself in each situation in the place of his neighbour. »
[ Alain Joseph Bellet, 'Dialogues with the spirit world' ]

 « We've been told so much about what a horrible flaw it is to be selfish that we don't readily admit that we are. What you need to hear very simply is that the human being - even the generous one - is selfish, but more or less. The definition of the man who has done no inner work is to be completely selfish.
 This teaching seems primary, whereas it is the great Teaching, the Supreme Wisdom. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'Yoga and spirituality' ]

 « The way☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

What is the way?

* *
  « What all religious or esoteric teachings call the way, is for those who are tired of being wrong.

 The path begins with a complete reversal of our way of seeing. When you have known enough rich, admired and unhappy men and women, you know that money and success do not bring happiness and that there must be "something" to understand and find. Conversely, how many people without beauty, without notoriety, are nevertheless relaxed, at peace and happy. There are people who are both fulfilled and desperate, and people who are disgraced or crippled, but radiant with joy. Happiness or suffering only apparently depends on external conditions. Happiness or misfortune are the expression of what we are, not the result of what we have.

 The important thing is not to have but to be.

 The sage is free from desire. He stopped opposing what we like to what we don't like.

 The one who, on the contrary, can feel himself to be only on the condition of having is necessarily in competition with those who also covet to have what he desires. For him there is neither rest nor peace. To have does not only mean to have money or material goods, but all that is combined with this verb: to have knowledge, prestige, honors, original ideas, an ideal, an ideology, experiences, friends, admirers, everything that we can say "my", everything that can give the illusion of filling the inner void and the nullity of being. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'The paths of wisdom' ]

 « The way is a huge hospital where those who have recognized and accepted the fact of their illness meet. This disease is the disease of the ego, of individualism, which imprisons us in the duality of desires and refusals. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'The paths of wisdom' ]

is above all a question of inner growth, from selfishness, narrowness to understanding and universal love. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'The paths of wisdom' ]

 « A merchant complained about a competitor who had a store right next to his.

 - What do you want me to do ? asks Rabbi Meir. That I hunt it? And how will he manage to feed his own children? Listen, have you ever seen a horse drinking in a clearing? He stamps his feet. Why is he typing? Because he sees his shadow, or his image in the water; so he says to himself: what, is there another horse here? He wants to drive him away. That's why he hits, but by hitting he stirs up the mud from the bottom, and the water becomes undrinkable. So stop tapping your foot. Drink and let anyone who is thirsty drink. There is enough water for all the horses in the world. »
[Elie Wiesel, 'Hasidic Celebration']

  « The fundamental quality of the mystic is to be himself. He does not try to hide his negative polarity hypocritically in order to deploy only his positive polarity to the eyes of the world. He knows that the greatest masters themselves possess this double polarity as long as they are embodied and it is by remaining themselves that they give the best example.

 By being himself, the mystic is a complete being . However, he learns to use his positive polarity for others and to keep his negative polarity for himself, which is a considerable help, to share his joys and overcome his sorrows.

 In contact with the world which is a laboratory for him, his consciousness blossoms. »
[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 « Those whose hearts are open to flattery, or who are too conscientious in their science, are on the wrong track. »
[Message collected by Allan Kardec]

 « Man is haunted by what he is. His own personality blinds him to the point that he reflects it in everything. The thief thinks he is being robbed, the clever see tricks everywhere.

 (...) Throughout his life, man seeks his rhythm. If he is a thief, honesty will cost him, likewise cleanliness if he is neglected, likewise truth if he is a liar; on the other hand, he will be enchanted by virtue if he is holy, by goodness if he is good, by justice if he is just. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Know what you are worth, but don't seem more than you are. »
[ Arnaud Gourvennec, celestial messages ]

 « The pride of knowledge is worse than ignorance. »
[Elie Wiesel, 'Hasidic Celebration']

 « It takes me longer than others to understand certain things. Intelligence has played a subordinate role in my life, I find myself narrow-minded. God gives man the intelligence he needs.

 Often the speeches addressed to me contain qualifiers that I find difficult to swallow. No one can find anything good in it. This humiliates me unnecessarily because I must admit that I do not deserve this praise. And if some were deserved, they could, if I wasn't careful, turn my head.

 My shortcomings and failures are just as much a blessing from God as my gifts and successes. Why did He choose the imperfect instrument that I am for such a great work? It was necessary to come to the aid of millions of ignorant poor who suffer in silence. A perfect man would have discouraged them in advance. On the contrary, all the hopes seemed to them allowed when they saw advancing on the way of the ahimsâ (the love) a man like them, with the same weaknesses. »

 « Detach yourself. Believe me, this is the only way to stop resenting human shortcomings. »

Patience

 « Patience makes tolerable what cannot be prevented. »
 (Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known as HORACE (-65 to -8))

 « Patience. A word that is pronounced quickly, a virtue that is difficult to obtain. »
 (Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, 'The Gospel According to Pilate')
* *
Patience is not a weakness but a strength.
It demonstrates self-control.
By dominating suffering
it masters our moods and even the events.

__
Patience sets us free.
Free to act, and no more to be the toy of our reactions.

__
Patience calls for Love, tolerance.
Impatience breeds anger, incomprehension, resentment.

 « The ability to remain steadfast, whatever the circumstances, is a strength. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

 « Time, Space and Patience are the means by which Man, as a limited spirit, becomes aware of the Infinite.

 Patience does not simply mean waiting, but it is the attitude of those who bring their nature into accord with the laws of Nature. »

 « The ordeal, in any case, will end as soon as you have internally removed from it what is necessary for your evolution. Be patient, the ordeal will pass. »
[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 « Inner peace is the pivot that determines our behavior. »
