Via Sri Prem Baba / Flower of the Day: 10/06/16:

“Sometimes, we have not yet reached the point to transcend a bad habit, but we already have the maturity to make an intelligent austerity in relationship to it. I say ‘intelligent’ because it is an aspect that we already know, have studied and understood.  We know we need to make an effort to direct the vectors of our will to free us from particular negative impulses. Through austerity, our will increases and we feel stronger and stronger as we see ourselves making changes. Thus, our consciousness continues expanding.”
Sri Prem Baba

Regardless of what happens, your self is, from the beginning, the spontaneous self-nature of Buddha.
