On Self-Development From Shree Vasant's Teachings

Let us curb our anger. Let us curb our desires and go face-to-face with the six crocodiles which haunt us, i.e., anger, greed, lust, envy, pride, attachment, because to be a messenger of peace, one must behave as such. No one is perfect, but let us at least take the responsibility to try to attain that perfect state of, “I and my Father are One.”

In realizing one’s own imperfections one must thereby inculcate the quality of compassion for others. Knowing that I myself am not yet perfect, how can I expect others to be? Let me try to understand. Let me have compassion for others. Let me never harbor jealousy, greed, anger. Let me be as pure an instrument of Divine Love as I am able to be at this time.
